It may sound complicated but it describes the crux of the matter. And that’s why we developed the t.hub.
t.hub in a nutshell
How t.hub integrates, unravels and reinvents your existing processes.
What you can expect from t.hub
Efficient translation processes
By bringing all of your translation-related activities together on t.hub, you will benefit from a tremendous increase in transparency with regard to costs and quality. All of your supplier interactions become visible not only for the individual user but also for the centralized language desk, procurement and the organization as a whole – regardless of where in the world the translation takes place or is ordered.
A customizable dashboard presents an overview of all your translation activities, supplier relationships, costs according to geographic location, languages and departments.
Identifying cost drivers and allocating costs to the correct cost centers then becomes a matter of course.
The system provides:
- Ongoing evaluations of internal and external translators, quality control, and other resources involved in the process.
- Allocation of costs to the respective cost centers.
- Predefined, user-specific Key Performance Indicators (KPI).
- Online statistical data and analyses available in real time.
- Option for exporting all statistical data into external data warehouses.
Transparency on processes, costs and quality
At the heart t.hub’s lies a technology that allows you to simplify, revamp and streamline your translation processes. The result is a smarter work environment, lower costs and reduced inefficiency.
The system offers:
- End-to-end integration of all participants in the process, regardless of whether they work in your company or outside of it.
- One shared, global platform for all participants.
- Customizable, flexible workflows for your company-specific implementations.
- Template-based automation of all process steps.
- Reduction/elimination of manual work processes. The focus is on exception handling.
Easy allocation of orders and translators
A key challenge for all internal and external language service providers is the selection of available, competent and affordable resources to execute a specific order.
Our system allows for the manual, semi-automated or fully automated selection of the right translators.
A specially tailored user interface is available for the manual selection of translators, enabling experienced users to quickly handle large volumes of orders as well.
In the semi- and fully automated resource allocation process, templates and supplier groups aid in allocating translators to specific orders.
Broad supplier base and professional sourcing
Work with a broad range of specialized and highly qualified providers without experiencing a drastic increase in complexity and costs. Your sourcing processes are supported by a public marketplace. The system offers modern tools, such as sourcing auctions and automated tender processes, for pricing negotiations with your existing and future providers.
- Processes with all suppliers are integrated into your workflow using one common interface. Switching suppliers is very easy.
- Adding additional suppliers does not incur any additional costs.
- Efficient supplier management.
- Automatic discount calculations based on volume, quality or other parameters as defined in the respective supplier’s contract.
