Rapid Global Business Solutions: Cost-Effective Engineering Solutions for Accelerated Results

Ravi Kumar, President & CIO
A lover of marathons with willpower to excel-Ravi Kumar, CIO, Rapid Global Business Solutions, Inc (RGBSI) says that running 26.2 miles takes a lot of tenacity and determination. “The drive to continue running, even when your body refuses is a great challenge,” he says. Kumar uses a similar approach to steer RGBSI. “Once we decide on a sound strategy, we continue fine tuning and executing it.” Started about two decades ago, RGBSI is a workforce management and engineering service company focusing on quality at the concept stage of aerospace and other industries.

The company offers various facets of design, detailing and drafting along with 2D and 3D modeling, in the aerospace landscape. “Depending on the client’s need, we provide everything from conceptual drawings to detailed part drawings using a variety of software programs,” explains Kumar. Moreover, RGBSI has a technology plan that is in full compliance with United States International Trade Commission (ITC). The company works on various types of International Traffice in Arms (ITAR) and military projects for the clients. Conforming to standards and providing the best quality solution to meet the client requirements, these projects are varying in scope and size, and can entail simple documentation to actual product design. “This process starts with training all RGBSI employees on the compliance requirements and the ITAR control room housed within RGBSI,” says Kumar.

RGBSI’s ‘Empower Suite of Solutions’ has several models required for compliance, cost savings, and integrator of other technologies within their companies. Without this integrator technology, data from these software platforms are housed in separate databases, making integrated reporting difficult. “When all modules are utilized, it creates a powerful tool that everyone from executives to managers can utilize in order to make sound business decisions,” says Kumar.

Organizations choose RGBSI to be the Program Manager to handle all implementation and vendor management processes.
Some of the modules include EmpowerQLM, EmpowerSOW, EmpowerVMS and EmpowerPM. EmpowerQLM (Quality Lifecycle Management) focuses on offering manufacturing companies a zero defect deliverables from vendors. EmpowerSOW (Statement of Work) is a company’s window into the performance of its SOW project vendors through their Vendor Management Module. The tool allows for milestones and deliverables to be captured by the company’s project managers. EmpowerVMS provides a vendor management for staffing vendors. Whereas, EmpowerPM is the program management module, designed with automated processes that guide program managers to ensure a high quality of excellence.

Over the years, the company has supported some of the best and largest aerospace customers across the world. For instance, a large aerospace manufacturing company had strict but not-so-efficient supply chain management guidelines. In order to solve this challenge, RGBSI chalked out a detailed training program for their staff, restructured their supply chain and quality standards. This intricate approach led to effectively improving their staff performance, quality and reduced scrap rates.

Moving forward, the company will continue to expand its reach. This includes creating stronger partnerships with existing clients; expand the services as well as enticing new clients with the strength of managed services.
