Nuevos equipos, nuevas áreas y nuevas funciones: el nuevo modelo de agilidad de Entel

El gerente de Planificación y Proyectos de la empresa de telecomunicaciones, Francisco Basoalto, reveló los cambios que acarreó la pandemia y cómo los están enfrentando de cara a la llegada de la red 5G.

La pandemia aceleró los procesos internos de muchas empresas del mundo, pero en everis Telecom, quisimos conocer la visión de Francisco Basoalto, gerente de Planificación y Proyectos de Entel, quien participó en la reunión ampliada de Telecom everis, liderada por su director, Claudio Herrera. “Puede que en everis, al ser una compañía global, estén acostumbrados a trabajar de forma remota, pero en Entel no. Entel opera en Chile y Perú, pero de forma muy independiente”, comentó el ejecutivo.

Y es que reemplazar las coordinaciones de pasillo, no ha sido tan sencillo. “A veces en una subida al ascensor  uno resolvía un tema y ahora había que agendar una reunión en Teams, entonces, las agendas estaban sobrecargadas. Hemos aprendido a ir trabajando en ese escenario. Afortunadamente, ya teníamos incorporadas todas las plataformas que nos permitieron subirnos rápidamente. Fue acelerar una transformación que llegó para quedarse. Probablemente, habrá una adopción del teletrabajo mucho más profunda”, sostiene Basoalto.

Según el gerente de Planificación y Proyectos de Entel, las atenciones digitales crecieron rápido y lo hicieron para quedarse y, en ese sentido, cree que es repensar la estrategia de canales. “Hemos tenido que incorporar nuevas áreas, nuevos equipos y nuevas funciones hacia un modelo de agilidad”, reconoce Basoalto.

Además, el ejecutivo reflexionó sobre la implementación de la red 5G en Chile, una banda ancha que permitirá mucho más tráfico a altas velocidades, y mayor cantidad de dispositivos conectados. “Es una tecnología que, por la arquitectura de su red tiene una latencia muchísimo más baja. Eso permite distintos usos”, comentó.

La inclusión femenina en la tecnología

Mujeres de diversos países compartieron su experiencia trabajando y desarrollándose en el ámbito tecnológico en el LIVE “Inclusión de mujeres en las comunidades de tecnología”, que fue moderado por el Líder de everis, Sebastián Moreno, organizador de GDG Cloud Santiago.

Algunas de las reflexiones planteadas en la jornada del 23 de septiembre fueron: ¿Cómo aumentar la participación femenina en las comunidades? ¿Cómo acortar la brecha de género? Esta última fue respondida por Naara Weishaupt, Head of Data & Analytics de everis Chile, que fue una de las panelistas de este encuentro.

“Hay una construcción social que es muy fuerte en Latinoamérica. Existe un sesgo de que las mujeres son más hábiles para hacer unas cosas, por sobre otras. Eso impacta en nuestros empleos.Tenemos que generar un posicionamiento y demarcar – muy bien- que somos capaces”, afirmó Naara Weishaupt.

En el panel, estuvieron también Madeline Scarlett, Carol Guerrero, Cecilia Geraldo y Melissa Gave. Revívelo en el canal de YouTube de GDG Cloud Santiago.

CAPTIO: la rendición de gastos nunca fue tan fácil

Herramienta standard de everis se complementa con OneERP, ayudándote a rendir tus gastos de forma ágil y sencilla.

Una interfaz amigable y eficiente es la que ofrece CAPTIO, la nueva aplicación de everis que permite registrar gastos de forma automática, mediante el envío de fotos desde tu celular. Gracias a esta innovadora herramienta, a partir de ahora, ya no será necesario enviar los comprobantes en PDF a la casilla everis.hgChile@everis.com, simplemente, deberás capturar tu gasto desde la app pulsando sobre el botón flotante, en la parte inferior de la pantalla principal. Al hacerlo, se abrirá la cámara y podrás hacer la captura.

“Al tomar foto al comprobante, la aplicación extrae los datos necesarios, siendo el usuario quien le asigna una categoría según el tipo de gasto que desee registrar. Finalizada la creación de la Hojas de Gasto (HG), se debe solicitar la aprobación a través del botón Request Approval/Solicitar aprobación, una vez realizado, la HG pasará al estado de Sent/Enviado, finalizando su migración a SAP en un tiempo aproximado de 1 a 2 horas, explica el gerente de Administración y Finanzas de everis, Ricardo Sandoval.

¿Cómo instalar la aplicación? Accede desde tu móvil a Google Play, appStore, Amazon App o Windows Store, busca “Captio” para acceder a la página de descarga de la aplicación y selecciona “Instalar”. La aplicación se descargará e instalará en tu terminal móvil. Luego, ejecútala ¡y listo! Accederás a la pantalla de autenticación, donde deberás proporcionar tu dirección de correo corta de everis: username@everis.com

En Captio se podrán crear todos los tipos de gastos que se pueden crear en ONE ERP, salvo los relacionados con dietas y guardias, que se tendrán que seguir realizando en el sistema actual. Pero, eso sí, recuerda guardar los comprobantes

originales de las hojas de gastos que hayas rendido en este periodo de COVID-19, dado que se han procesado y cancelado sin tener los documentos físicos, que, en algún momento pueden ser fiscalizados por el Servicio de Impuestos Internos.

¿CUÁL ES LA IMPORTANCIA DE DOCUMENTAR LOS ACUERDOS CON EL CLIENTE?

Por ello EVERIS establece entregables que apoyan en cumplimento de las prácticas con el cliente. Dentro de los que podemos destacar:

Normas de Gestión

Describe las condiciones y reglas generales del proyecto o servicio, entre EVERIS y el cliente. Contiene la definición especifica de la metodología a ocupar, planes y estrategias, gestión de cambios, peticiones, incidencias, atención de reclamos o quejas del cliente, entre otros.

Acuerdos de Calidad y métricas de Proyectos o Servicios

Los acuerdos de Calidad (ANS, SLA  o indicadores) se definen desde el inicio del proyecto o servicio. Estos pueden ser solicitados por el cliente como también pueden ser propuesto por everis, deben estar detallados, ser medibles de acuerdo a generar expectativas realistas y alcanzables del proyecto o servicio.

Colaboración, equipos remotos y agilidad

El equipo de entrenamiento Agile de everis preparó un taller participativo para que los colaboradores pudieran exponer los temores y oportunidades que abre el trabajo remoto. En medio de los cambios, la nueva guía de trabajo remoto CERCA, podría convertirse en nuestro libro de cabecera.

Pasar del día a día compartiendo otros miembros del equipo a trabajar en forma remota, no siempre es fácil. Detrás de este giro que hemos tenido que dar, debido a la pandemia, hay todo un cambio cultural que requiere un ajuste de mentalidad. Por eso, los Agile Coaches de everis Chile José Luis Arellano, Luis Francisco Parra y Alberto Blanco, dirigieron el taller everis CERCA: “La colaboración de equipos remotos con agilidad”, que se realizó este miércoles 23 de septiembre con una amplia convocatoria.

“El objetivo fue reflexionar sobre las ventajas y desafíos del trabajo remoto, entregar tips prácticos que pueden incorporarse en el día a día con los equipos y divulgar la guía de trabajo remoto CERCA, dónde podrán encontrar mayor profundidad para mejorar su trabajo en remoto”, precisó Alberto Blanco, tras cerrar el encuentro.

El documento, elaborado por el equipo de Be Agile con la colaboración del CoE de Agilidad de Chile y la región, fue un esfuerzo colaborativo centrado en tres ejes: recopilar, prácticar y sintetizar. Las habilidades blandas son fundamentales para establecer relaciones fructíferas. Por eso, abrir la mente es tan importante para ajustarse a todos los cambios que se plantean en la guía de colaboración de equipos remotos con agilidad que puedes descargar acá.

USA – Eighth Edition

CEO Connection

Dear Team,

I hope you are staying safe and healthy during these times. The past few months have required an intense amount of focus and determination from all of us. At the end of our 2019 fiscal year, we entered into a global pandemic that demanded we adapt our business model and work from home basically overnight. Despite these challenges, we have been able to keep most of our projects, close projects with new clients and have increased our profitability. So far in the first quarter of FY’20 – for April and May- we closed $4.3M in monthly revenue and were 15.4% over budget. We are on track to finish the first quarter strong. These are accomplishments that we should be proud of. I congratulate each of you and I know that our FY’20 will be successful if we keep up the good work.

As far as the new normal, we discussed this in-depth during the everis USA meeting with our executives. We are focusing on ‘business as usual’ until we know more about our clients reopening plans and our cities and states’ plans where we operate. Let’s continue to move forward and focus as we analyze the situation daily with the safety of our employees in the forefront.

All the best,

 everis and Santander Deploy CDD Project

everis USA, and the AML/Compliance team working for Santander US, recently made one of the most important deployments in Santander bank in 2020. The CDD project pursues the migration and adaptation of Santander customer screening and scoring, within the process of onboarding new products in the new compliance platform (NetReveal). The project began on March 14th, 2017 and was finally successfully deployed on April 20th, 2020. everis USA took over the project back in 2019, in the midst of several critical problems the Bank had in the area – lack of knowledge and skills in the platform, non-structured and a very disorganized team, lack of alignment with the business areas, a very unstable platform, proper SLC processes and governance, etc. This was a great opportunity for everis USA to come in, at the beginning of 2019, and create a completely new model and way of working in the area. The approach was basically to build a true partnership, to be an accelerator for the IT Compliance Area (structured and knowledgeable team aligned with IT Management and Business teams). This new model was key to the success of the CDD project. The complexity of the achievement is remarkable considering it has been carried out during the COVID pandemic, with the team working from home, even in this situation, it was an example of complete success and received great recognition from our customer.

CEO Connection

Dear Team,

I would like to wish you a happy holidays. The new year is approaching, which is a good time to reflect on what we have accomplished and what we have left to acheive for our fiscal year. When we look back, we have much to be grateful for and we can be optimistic about the new year.

We are heading towards the end of the 2020 fiscal year, which will end in March, with very strong results. Revenue by the end of November – which includes the impact of the cyber-security attack- was close to $35 M USD which means we are 23% above budget and 42% above Year over Year. Not only are the bigger accounts (led by Santander and Avangrid) performing well but we are also making noteworthy progress in some of our newer accounts such as Kantar (https://www.kantar.com/) and Forever Mark (https://www.forevermark.com/en-us/our-diamonds/).

In terms of profitability, we are also above budget (65% above EBIT PB by the end of November) and contributing remarkably to the overall results of the everis group being the operation with the best relative profit indicators and third in overall net profit. During the last quarter of the year (January – March) we need to push so we maintain these outstanding results in order to keep the momentum for FY20. At this point I would like to acknowledge your efforts and your contributions to these results. Thank you!

Finally, we are currently working on the budget for FY20. It is going to be hard to keep up this strong pace but we plan to do it by continuing to increase our account portfolio and diversifying our operations in our main accounts. We are confident that, with this team, we will do it!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday and I look forward to building a new decade of success with you in 2020!

All the best,
