Operational Excellence Program
“Operational Excellence” has many definitions, but one of the best is from consulting firm WP&C: “Operational Excellence is the execution of the business strategy more consistently and reliably than the competition.”
Manitou software users now have the opportunity to achieve this high-level goal within their own company through Bold’s Operational Excellence program. This program was developed to help Manitou users take full advantage of the features within their system which benefit their customers and operations. Manitou users will learn to do more with their current resources and enable their teams to be ready and available to meet any customer need.
The process involves focusing on the customers’ needs, keeping employees positive and empowered, and continually improving the current activities in the workplace.
Our Operational Excellence Specialist with meet with you to determine your pain points and goals and to create a customized plan based around your business.
Your Operational Excellence resource will observe your operations and conduct training, starting with key staff members who can help implement the plan.
Continue to work with your Operational Excellence Specialist for additional training, to discuss challenges, and identify new ideas for improvement.

Bold Technologies also supports an open API to facilitate integration with partners throughout the industry. This methodology enables Manitou users to integrate partners and products of their choice. Bold Technologies currently provides the following options for integration with ManitouNEO:
Manitou Developer Kit (MDK)
Ideal for integrating internal, web, and/or third-party applications into Manitou without compromising your data or security. The MDK provides web services API, .Net API, and OCX API, and includes detailed specifications for developing to Manitou’s video standard as well as to Manitou’s XML standard.
A software receiver for non-traditional transmissions that converts packets received from a variety of communication paths into regular signals. The signals are processed through a “DataMap” which ensures that the signal is formatted and presented correctly in Manitou.
Bold XML Receiver Driver
Allows Manitou to receive properly formatted XML data as an alarm event or signal via TCP/IP. This specification is perfect for developers who have the flexibility to format packets to a strict protocol and maintain an open connection with Manitou.
Bold Technologies has always lead the way with open API’s. Our current API is a SOAP-based system, however the REST protocol is more popular for modern development. To support our large development community, ManitouNEO is being released with the REST API and support will continue for the SOAP API.
