Knowledge workers squander up to 2/3 of their time pushing activity flows forward. It's called management and administration and it adds zero value.
Thingamy runs the flows, thus automating management and administration. That offers the possibility to triple your core capacity using the same resources.
If your profit margin is 10% it would mean 21 times increase in profit. Or it could halve your nation's healthcare budget. That'll make you a hero.
Thingamy also allows you to quickly create new, different, and higher value services and products to increase your margins and sales even more.
The manually run information-, case-, patient- and work-flows break easily.
And manual handling of flows equals bucket-passing, always messy.
Thingamy removes the timewaste allowing focus, clarity, simplicity back into the workplace while the flows become unbreakable. That adds up to quality.
A physician at a hospital chose his vocation to help people, now he has to spend up to 60% of his time on administration and duplicate work. That's frustrating.
At the office you spend hours in meetings, reading bcc mails, writing reports and being interrupted. That's frustrating.
We fix that, in one go, so you can focus on what you love, what you're good at, and what delivers real value. In short, we re-introduce sense to the workplace.
Thingamy is infrastructure. It delivers knowledge and end-to-end flow infrastructure. It's strategic. It's sometimes political. It simplifies. It opens for new ways, new services, new value deliveries. It's about effectiveness. It eliminates wasteful activities.
This is about fixing the big important problems and making you a hero.
It's delivered as a service. Perfectly modelled for you, so you can be different and use less to deliver more - new services, way more value, better quality and out-compete anybody. And, it's dynamic so you can stay ahead.

The world, nature, life, everything is a constant process and are as such in constant change, like water in a river.
But you cannot tell water to change its path, you can only remove impediments to its willed path, namely where gravity wants to pull the water. The same principle applies to your world and your business as well.
That is how you can have influence the path, instil change and get results; remove impediments to change, then let the world, the life, the business change it's course.
Bonus: Many do not like change, but why fight resistance? Why not remove a few obstacles, open the door to change and let the nature of things play out by itself?×
We're a small group of highly experienced business and domain experts.
Among us we have started 11 companies, done 5 LBOs, advised in many M&As and run a multiple of these companies.
We set out to solve a very basic and hugely important issue for humanity: how to create more value and prosperity for more people, organisations and businesses while using less resources.
Translated to daily use this means systems that can seamlessly and effectively run the value creation flows; the patient, the people, the product, the information and the workflows - for small businesses to whole nations.
Before offering any product we spent more than ten years in the laboratory, creating and designing a completely unique solution that will surprise and delight you, and that will eventually increase your value creation manyfold, not by mere percentages.
We believe that there is only one proof for such a claim, and that can only be found in the product itself - so let us show you what it can do and how it works. You will be excited, as this is precisely what you've been waiting for.×
Thingamy is made to do BRPs in a highly effective and logical way, hence it can do ERPs as well.
Thingamy is in the cloud, using browsers only, and is particularly created for mobile devices like tablets.
Enterprise software should be invisible, focus should be on the work: Fewest possible features, minimal reports, fewest possible choices at all times. We do not try to compete with the "mature, flashy" stuff, we just want to deliver, assure, and record!
The architecture allows full layout flexibility, the system is multitenant on many levels and completely scalable.
User main area gives the tasks or the report views all dynamically created on in real time. The sidebar gives access to the report views as per role while what you can do or see is dynamically set during the flows - the system knows what you shall be allowed to see or do depending on where in a process you are and how are you related to objects.
Here's a simple view of a constituent's requests given his local council - including who's responsible just now and what's happening (if set for that level of transparency).
A request flow has been started:
Select responsible and set priority:
Once done it will now appear as a task for the local council worker chosen, where he will delegate or answer directly - each step smoothly following each other with automatic delivery of all needed to the right person at the right time.
Thingamy has two separate interfaces to the live instance - this is the "builder" where anything can be built from scratch or changes can be done even while live. Complex systems takes only days to create from scratch, once up and running changes can be done in minutes.
The build usually starts with "what value are you going to deliver" as it gives you the "datamodel" - the first classes, the cookie cutters that stamps out unique objects. Here's what a class consist of (properties and other settings) for the local council build:
Objects relates to each other, that's how knowledge applies and how the system can find the right object at the right time. These relations can be changed in the flows at any time to control who sees what and gets what tasks:
A relation is an n-triple - subject, predicator, object:
Queries are needed to find the right stuff, here's the list from the council build:
Queries are combination of and, or, not, etc etc and above all; what relationship has the viewer with the objects found:
Here's the list of ERP snippets for the council build, each having user chosen forks and operators that punts the flow to some next other ERP snippet:
The flows consists of any sequential set of instructions, the red are user involving tasks, green are for back end object manipulation, grey, blue and yellow is about the flow. All drag and drop of course:
Opening an instruction allows the builder to set the details, who, what etc.:
Reports uses queries (as does accounts, but they're number crunching oriented of course) and starts with base reports that can be combined to lists with related object or columns or mashed up reports of the other:
Base report settings:
Lastly the roles defines only what reports can be had and what flows can be intiated directly:×

Our world view that spurred us to do something. It's a partial list, not purported to be entirely right, you might even disagree completely but that does not matter, it's still useful as an innovation tool. And keep in mind that the inertia of reality does not allow changes to happen in one go. Thus Thingamy is built so it can mimic the current situation for all aspects leaving the door to change wide open for those who wants to walk through it:

Simple - all in one
Admin time waste
All value creation time
Sigurd Rinde started Thingamy Ltd in 2000.
Actually it did not start as an IT project, not even as a commercial startup. It was an idea laboratory, nothing more to begin with.
After having spent years doing LBOs for his own penny, started quite a few companies Sigurd sometimes got stuck with running the companies. Not his favourite pastime. OK, Sigurd did love the strategy part, the leader role, the ups and downs, the adrenaline - but not the management part, definitely not.
As lazyness is the mother of all inventions Sigurd started out on a quest to find out why he disliked "management". It surely was a waste of time, pushing, cajoling, addressing exceptions all the time, meetings, email avalanches - so why all of that when value-creation suffered?
Add that the newest part of management sciences was 515 years old (double entry book keeping). At that time other sciences thought earth was the centre of the universe, luckily other sciences has progressed since then. Heck, the Roman army had found out that ten subordinates per "boss" was the correct ratio (see decurions, centurions), now 2000 years later, more than 100 years of business schools and 40,000 management handbooks in print at all times they now agree that the correct ratio is... ten subordinates per boss. Duh.
The proverbial apple falling in the lap was when one started to see "management & organisational structures" as having but one purpose: to make the work, case, patient and other flows move forward.
That's when Sigurd and a few co-workers started to create a dramatically different IT platform that could be a framework for any type of flow, most importantly to include support for unpredictable flows that after all is where most of the world's value creation happens.
The first payoff of starting in that end was that data could be captured automatically and in context, leaving some logic to be applied at the end to create any kind of report, including accounting. This could make all other enterprise software redundant. An interesting bonus indeed.
But as life is unpredictable, as planning is bad replacement for trying, it was required to create a system that allowed for extremely fast and flexible creation of domain specific enterprise solutions that could be tweaked on the fly without interrupting anything.
This led to a 12 years self-funded laboratory project with more full rewrites than could be counted, only to become domain specific and practical at the end of 2012. All delivered as a service in the cloud and for mobile devices of course.
So now Sigurd spends his time travelling and talking with customers often in close cooperation with our team of sales partners. The focus is now to help our customers and partners to realise the potential gains and create new services. After all, it's on the ground, in real life, that the new opportunities lies.
And of course, with real life implementation the tech focus has shifted towards user experience, reliability, scaling, and effective support to ensure that privacy is unbeatable (in fact it is by architecture), that we have no limits to scale and that everything runs smoothly. Our attitude to user experience is that enterprise software should be unobtrusive and that training and manuals should not be required.
So simple does it, do not expect the "mature, fancy, feature-rich" experience from us. Expect a truly different experience and above all dramatic effects for your organisation. This is the real next generation enterprise solution!×
