Most enterprise systems have a fixed number of levels, which force customer to fit into a rigid structure that doesn't match their business. Others view customers from only a single model for how offices and locations can be viewed. With smartStructures, Enterprise Systems can build flexible hierarchies with multiple perspectives! Offices can be organized into multiple hierarchies. Customers can each have separate depth to match their business.
Legacy directory services provide only a single hierarchical view of offices and other organizational units. With smartStructures, Enterprise Systems can build flexible hierarchies from multiple perspectives! Finance features can use one hierarchy, Operational features can use a different hierarchy, while Admin features can use a separate hierarchy. Each perspective can have different levels of depth.
With smartStructures directory, Enterprise systems can add properties to traditional objects while building an organizational hierarchy. A simple API integration provides the directory with the metadata needed to add input fields and a return call send that data back your system.
Traditional directories limit you by allowing you to define an organization from a single perspective. For SaaS systems that need to support dozens or hundreds of customers, this is an event bigger problem. You don't want to set up multiple directories, and you don't want to write custom code. With smart.Structures, multiple companies can be represented in a single service.
Each company can be organized from several different perspectives. For example, some systems may view the customer from a marketing perspective, and others from a financial perspective. Each perspective can group the core organizational units differently.
smart.Structures tracks changes over time allowing you to report on the organizational structure as it changes over time.
