Our Hinto organization is not easy to represent in an org chart. Organimi’s matrix solution helps us create a much clearer picture, especially for our customers

GOALS

Being a very agile company with many cross-functional teams, Hinto needed to find a solution that reflected how their organization operates. 

OBSTACLES

Their legacy org chart solution was difficult to maintain and couldn’t accurately reflect the fluid, collaborative nature of the Hinto organization.

RESULTS

 Organimi enables Hinto to quickly and easily update and customize its org charts, saving time and valuable company resources.

Overview

For more than 18 years, Hinto has been a leading-edge software integrator and designer of Open Source applications. The Hinto team believes in the combination of technology and beauty and creating software solutions that offer greater utility and enhanced user engagement.

Hinto is a dynamic, matrix-based organization with an organizational structure driven by current projects. Their legacy org chart solution was difficult to maintain and couldn’t accurately reflect the fluid, collaborative nature of the Hinto organization.

Business Challenge

The Hinto CEO, Mauro Pugliese, had previous experience with Organimi and wanted to determine if Organimi’s new, matrix-based org chart capabilities were a fit.  “We needed a solution that reflected how we work,” says Pugliese. “We are very agile as a company, with many cross-functional teams and constantly changing reporting relationships.”

Hinto’s legacy solution was difficult to update, and distributing the most current charts was also difficult. As well, Hinto’s typical engagements with customers included team members from across the organization, including sales, product development, delivery, and technical support. Hinto needed org charts that were visual, intuitive, and easy for customers to understand.

“We knew we had to have an org chart solution that had strong matrix capabilities to represent our company structure and culture accurately,” says Pugliese.

Solution

The Organimi matrix feature allowed Hinto to set up their org chart as a grid, rather than in a traditional, hierarchical fashion. The matrix org charts could reflect employee relationships with two or more managers and represent Hinto team members as part of multiple, cross-functional teams.

Organimi’s matrix org chart creation tool gave Hinto all of the same features and ease-of-use functionality as the classic Organimi solution, enabling Hinto to quickly and easily create, modify, and distribute updated org charts. The company could also create customized, project-based org charts for specific customers.

Hinto also incorporated Organimi’s Smart Chart features, including color-coding and custom badging. Using these features, Hinto could create simple visual representations of different ‘communities,’ such as sales, development, design, and service. 

“The Organimi charts are easy to share and accurately capture our organization and our teams,” says Pugliese.

Benefits

Hinto’s organizational relationships are constantly changing to reflect new customer engagements and project opportunities. Organimi enables Hinto to quickly and easily update and customize its org charts, saving time and valuable company resources.

Organimi’s matrix capabilities allow Hinto to create org charts that, when shared with customers, illustrate the power of Hinto’s collaboration-based engagement model. By using Organimi’s Smart Chart capabilities, the Hinto team can incorporate even more personnel and organizational information into their org charts.

As Organimi is cloud-based, it’s much simpler for Hinto to share org charts internally, with customers, and with business partners. 

Early in 2020, Hinto undertook a significant reorganization, and Pugliese found Organimi’s matrix-based org charts particularly useful in communicating the new structure to external stakeholders. “Our Hinto organization is not easy to represent in an org chart,” he explains. “Organimi’s matrix solution helps us create a much clearer picture, especially for our customers.”
