Description and history
Ingenuus Corporation is a provider of Web-based business-to-business content management software solutions for manufacturers and their e-supply chains. The Company’s Web-based task flows solutions allow program, project and product managers to take command and control of their process lifecycles by providing linked task flows throughout the global organization, including the extended supply chain. The Company’s Smart Expediter powers each task flow process to ensure coordinated execution and real-time management. Task flow templates exist for several management processes such as stage gate, new product introduction and product lifecycle management. Several sub-process templates are also available, such as engineering change requests and orders, stop ship/work orders and process change request. On March 14, 2003, the Company filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Act in the United States Bankruptcy Court.

Task flow templates that work synergistically are bundled together in Smart Suites. Powered by the Smart Expediter, Smart Suites are solution-oriented and address specific areas such as project management, product management and portfolio management. In many cases, the overarching task flow process is bundled with common sub-processes. The Company’s line of Smart Suites includes Smart Program/Project Manager, Smart Stage Gate, Smart JPACE, Smart Product Lifecycle Automation, Smart Manufacturing Change Manager, Smart Product Data Manager, Smart Document Manager and Smart Part Finder. On December 2, 2003, Ingenuus Software Inc. announced the availability of the Smart Compliance Manager, which addresses the requirements needed to achieve and maintain Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. The Smart Compliance Manager comes with six task flow templates: Control Document Process (Stage Gate-based), Corrective Action, Document Change Request, Complaint Process, Discrepancy Report and Legal Hold.

The Smart Expediter (SE) is a business process execution engine that allows business process owners, not programmers or consultants, to take command and control of their business processes by providing real-time, around-the-clock coordination and synchronization throughout the process lifecycle. The Smart Expediter efficiently schedules, tracks, reminds, routes, archives, audits, alerts, delegates, escalates and identifies bottlenecks to keep your business processes flowing.

The Smart Expediter comes in three licensed configurations: Professional, Enterprise and Enterprise Distributed. The Smart Expediter Professional Edition is specifically designed for smaller teams and is offered through the Company’s distributor network, often bundled with hardware, consulting and support. SE Enterprise Edition is specifically for medium to large-sized organizations that are not geographically dispersed. For geographically dispersed organizations where fault tolerance, document replication and coordinated document synchronization are required, the Company offers SE Enterprise Distributed. This solution is designed for global companies. The starting SE Distributed-Enterprise Edition comes with 10 concurrent-user licenses, five process licenses, two document repositories with standard replication and two Web servers with fail-over switch. To facilitate integration, the Company provides an integration gateway, Smart Gateway.

Ingenuus provides a number of services to assist its customers. Services include business process analysis, business process optimization, installation assistance, system configuration, definition and execution, process configuration, enhancement/expansion estimation and specification, upgrade assistance and Smart Suite configuration. The Company also provides training on the Web, in its offices in Frisco, Texas, and onsite.
