The Advantageous Ethics

Our founding values are essentially aimed at the respect and at the people’s enhancement and they also represent the guidelines of Proge-Software’s company policy.

We called this “The advantageous ethics”, to summarize the complex but clear business philosophy that feeds knowledge and expertise through innovation, by giving priority to people’s dignity and expertise.

The advantageous ethics must inspire all the company members actions and behaviors, according to their expertise and responsibilities: the ownership, by continuously allocating adequate financial resources, mainly through the provision of profits; the management, by taking on a difficult but stimulating task of making ethics advantageous through innovative projects on which conveying professional training and updating; employees with their commitment.

In this way, ethics becomes so advantageous, to eliminate  staff’s stand-by costs and turning them into investments on innovation and professional training.

We believe that investing on research allows us to create the right vision to track the way of innovation and to stimulate production. We also believe that the most efficient solutions, able to promote the real change, come from a virtuous circle that establishes itself between research, innovation and production.

To anticipate customers’ requirements, we set up dedicated laboratories, ProgeLABs, where the most evolved technologies are experimented and research projects with a dual objective are conduced:

  • The realization of innovative, efficient, economical and repeatable on a large-scale solution, able to create a competitive advantage
  • Lead to an enrichment and deepening of our staff’s knowledge and skills, to better support our customers in the change process

In ProgeLABs laboratories, training internship on innovative technologies for graduated students and to write the graduation thesis are available.

Today's thoughts become tomorrow's reality

Research & Development ProjectsThe current R&S investments are focused on the following projects:

3FS – 3rd Generation Fleet System

Thanks to a twenty-years’ experience gained with the realization of the first two generations of systems, destined to the biggest car-rental multinational corporations, the next goal is to generate an innovative integrated fleet management system to be used by majority of industry players. 3FS will be modular, aiming at a wide audience of buyers of any dimension and geographical location.

From 2019, 3FS will be the subject of a broad commercial action that will start from Europe to gradually spread to the other continents, with the goal to substitute over time the versions operating on the current customers.

Market research and study of cutting-edge software products that allowed to define the Technological Platform and the system Architecture.

Drafting of project Standards and fine tuning of the system infrastructure.

Experiments aimed at defining strategies and methodology to be applied to safeguard the functional inheritance in the epochal transition to the cloud.

Feasibility study on the use of the most sophisticated technologies already in use (Agile/Scum), in order to maximize the productivity of the project team, ensuring the quality and reliability of the final product.

Experimental development of the new system by applying the methodology emerging from the feasibility study and by taking advantage of the twenty-years know how on the customers’ needs. The new system must be available on the Cloud for Car Rental operators.

ISA2018 – Systems and Application Innovation 2018

Developing advanced products and tools in both the infrastructural and the application fields, based on the use of the most advanced technologies and on the integration of the new products and Hd/Sd releases, even in their experimental version, aiming at renewing and requalifying the company’s technical & commercial offer.

Scouting activities on the most diversified technological environments are planned: study, design, analysis and implementation of infrastructural and application.

The research and application of new products and methodologies, the design and implementation of new software tools and advanced procedures to facilitate the IT systems development and maintenance, the development of prototypes to meet specific needs emerging from the market, are all very relevant points.

Applications based on the use of last generation products, even in their experimental version, also based on the use of proprietary tools and consulting services guided by predefined methods and procedures, designed to meet the needs of messaging, collaboration, integrated communication, document management, system management, software life cycle management and security.

Technical and professional update of the staff in strategic technological environments for the company aimed at achieving innovative skills and certifications. The whole aimed at seizing the opportunities deriving from new technological platforms, specifically from Cloud, IoT and the new frontiers of Business Intelligence.

C2S – Consulting to Solutions

Innovation of production processes aiming at canalizing the wide range of technical skills owned by the company into Solutions responding to punctual requirements coming from the market.

R&S Solutions must be easily configurable in terms of costs and times, so that they can be cataloged and managed directly by the sales force, thus avoiding the difficult and expensive interaction with the technical sector.

Definition of a marketing plan in which the first possible Solutions to be implemented have already been hypothesized.

Progressively achieve the automation of marketing processes currently managed with jumbled and expensive pre-sale activities that engage technical resources taking them away from the productive activity.

Provide the commercial sector a “Catalog of Solutions” with precise instructions on the information to be acquired from customers, to configure and qualify the Solution offer  in terms of commitment and costs.

PGA – Corporate Governance Processes

Processes innovation dictated by the Corporate Governance Manual, based on the application of advanced technologies for the automatic management of the work-flow, in order to transfer the input operations, authorization, checking, archiving, consultation and divulgation of the information relevant to the company organization from the paper flow to the electronic one.

Restructuring of the Company Intranet and migration of the already operational procedures belonging to the Quality and Safety certification.

Progressively complete the process automation currently managed with manual and paper procedures, to pursue a constant evolution aimed at the dematerialization in order to reduce more and more the operational actions in the fulfillments required by the Corporate Governance.

Starting easy and intuitive automatisms which will guide the work-flow of the authorization procedures and the release of the various documents produced by the company, and ensure their disclosure in accordance with the Italian and European Regulation.

SPS – Smart Patient’s Security

Continuing the investments in “Health Care” in order to enrich our offer to achieve the critical mass necessary to open new outlets in the healthcare market, and in particular in the hospital applications.

In 2013, the research and development project called SIM (Multimedia Integration Development, Sviluppo Integrazione Multimediale) was approved from FILAS. The project was aimed at the experimental development of and multimedia integration platform able to transfer the most relevant technological innovations to the classic management applications, in order to make the user interaction easier and more intuitive. The project, realized in cooperation with University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome and NITEL, happily ended in May 2015, producing two specific prototypes (operating rooms aids, digital kiosks) based on the use of touch and touchless Microsoft technology (tablet, phone, Kinect).

In the second half of 2015 and with the industrialization of the first prototype, called: STS – Surgery Touchless System, arriving at the fine tuning of the product to be offered to the market.

In 2017 we proceeded with the experimentation of new tools to be used to follow the patients inside the hospital by realizing automatic connections with their medical records.

Proceeding with new R&S investments in the hospital field – focusing the attention on the conception of new applications dedicated to patients’ safety such as to support STS and enrich our company’s offer in this sector.

Undertaking every possible evolutionary development based on the exploitation of new discoveries in the audiovisual field and gesture recognition.
