#2 The process of circulation of invoices and OCR documents
Automation of the processes of processing and circulation of financial and accounting documents in a complex organization consisting of several related companies. A complicated, multi-stage and multi-dimensional acceptance process with full integration with the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) system processing 1500+ documents per month.
Rivet consultants have analized the vendor invoice flow process
Based on the IT tool used by the client, they designed and programmed an invoice handling module, that has been linked with OCR
They proposed the most optimal process of invoice circulation (workflow), during which the invoice is assigned / described, approved, booked and paid
This process is multi-stage, at each stage there are complex authorization / responsibility mechanisms controlled by decision tables (a separate proprietary plugin „Decision Tables” also designed and implemented by Rivet Group)
This allows for flexible indication of people / groups / teams responsible at particular stages, depending on various invoice data, e.g. type / classification of costs, supplier, invoice amount
Appropriate coupling of these mechanisms with (security level) ensures access to a given invoice only for the right users
The invoice accounting process is addressed to daughter companies and is adapted to its specific requirements
The accounting process itself has been largely automated thanks to the integration with the financial and accounting system
The configuration of decision tables is kept in Excel files that are convenient for business users

#3 Business and IT transformation
The wide and optimal use of the possibilities of Jira and Confluence in the organization, assuming the handling of the entire production process and as many business and IT processes as many business and IT processes as possible in Atlassian products, including:PM / PMO, Release, Change Requests, Requirements Management, QA Management, Marketing, SLA.
consulting and implementation in the field of processes, including PM/PMO, Release, Change Requests, Requirements Management, QA Management, Marketing, SLA
development and full tool support for Atlassian products – Jira, Confluence
comprehensive support for QA processes (test management, manual tests, automatic tests,
comprehensive application monitoring and environmental management (dev, pre-prod, prod, etc.)..
It was proposed to work in the “Jira Concierge” service model, under which:
an audit of the current use of JIRA (processes, plugins, configuration) was carried out
an inventory of the client’s needs was carried out
activities were proposed and planned – consulting and expert support, backlog, mentoring
support was provided for the successive development of Jira in the organization – upgrade, configuration, plugin evaluations, custom development, etc.
test management in Jira was proposed and implemented
processes were automated in the areas of: tests, PMO, monitoring, eCommerce, marketing, accounting, E-Law Office, SLA, Release Management
Jira integration with other systems was taken care off
as part of transferring processes to Jira and in view of the specific needs of the client, which are not covered by the Atlassian marketplace solutions, own plugins for Jira were designed and developed (custom- made solutions)

#4 Optimization and automation of IT processes
Jira + Confluence. Proposing additions required to service the specified functional requirements and adapting them to the specific needs of the customer in the areas of:
• Project management • Project portfolio management • Change management • Release management • Defining guidelines for the implementation of the Jira platform implementation project •
Diagnosis of the situation (opening audit) was carried out
QA Craft for Jira was proposed
Test repositories from other sources (TestLink, Excel) were migrated to QA Craft for Jira
Selected tests were automated (selected from the point of view of the sense of automation) using the proprietary Combine Continuous Testing Toolkit
Possibility for Automated tests to be managed from the QA Craft for Jira tool
The implemented QA Craft for Jira add-on supports the linking of requirements with tests. The tool enables reporting the coverage of requirements with tests. Test metrics are grouped by requirements
