Read on for some examples of what we have done:
Business Reporting Mobile App
Gives business owners a real-time overview of sales, operations and customer services from wherever they are. Pulling together the key data that’s important to you from as many enterprise systems as you could name, this is the ultimate mobile reporting tool.
This tool can sit alongside nearly all existing systems (as long as they support SQL queries or web services). It can be used mobile or in the office or both, with many clients finding its reporting capabilities far outstripping those offered by other systems.
Before having the custom app: Managers, engineers and sales reps out and about or working from home would have to constantly phone the office for updates. The office would also have to contact sales reps and engineers with any changes to their schedules.
Now with a custom business app: Any employee out and about, working from home or in meetings can get real-time information of all business operations and schedules. Any amended visit is highlighted and everyone has the information they need at their fingertips. Office employees can also see what the remote staff are doing and where they are. Time is saved and clerical errors vastly reduced, meaning an enhanced, more efficient business process.
Patient Data Collection Questionnaire iPad App
Secure, mobile data collection questionnaire for an NHS hospital. By replacing traditional paper forms, the questionnaires can be filled out electronically on an iPad, the data is automatically analysed and synched up with the existing system, providing doctors with immediate patient data prior to seeing patients. Doctors can also see historic data and can compare data over time, proving invaluable.
Before having the custom app: patient data was collected in on paper questionnaires and the doctor wouldn’t always have time to check the questionnaire before the consultation or would spend precious time in the consultation reviewing the questionnaire.
Now with a custom business app: this NHS paperless system has reduced paper processing and doctors have the relevant information which can be reviewed and acted on more efficiently, which in turn frees up consultation time. Doctor and clerical time is saved, admin errors are reduced and the service is improved and faster. Patient health progress can be compared over time, making it easier to assess treatments, to report to commissioners and to highlight changes, overall improving patient care.
Stock Inventory Management Mobile App
Track inventory on the move – whether it’s in the warehouse or out and about. The iPad and iPhone app integrates with the whole business system including purchasing and invoicing.
Before having the custom app: Stock was counted on paper, which was then typed into the business system. This was time consuming, delaying getting stock data and data entry errors were made.
Now with a custom business app: Stock is tracked on the iPad and iPhone, which is integrated with the whole business system, meaning everyone has real-time access to stock inventory. The company has increased operational efficiency, significant time and cost savings and reduced clerical errors.
Surveyors Management Custom iPad App
This mobile app sends surveyors out to work in the field with everything they need, all the information from the office at their fingertips. The surveyors can input their data so the office has the information nearly instantly. The surveyor’s management app also simplifies surveyors data entry, making it once only. This is automatically synched with office database and securely backed up. Meanwhile if there are any survey changes the surveyors have any schedule changes highlighted to them automatically
Before having the custom app: Surveyors would go offsite with pen and paper making notes to be written up by office admin at a later date. Schedule changes were time consuming.
Now with a custom business app: The surveyors and office have the same information. Admin time and errors are reduced and information between surveyors and office is transparent. More surveys can be done in a more cost effective manner.
