Free K2 Five Upgrade Review

 

Arno Van Rooyen, CEO Velocity IT Limited said “It honours us to accept this award in collaboration with Wales & West Housing. The project shows the tangible benefits of automating a business-critical process and how the pace in delivery and capabilities presented by the K2 platform can deliver such great results for process improvement – I’m proud of the Velocity IT team that contributed to winning this award”.

The Award-Winning K2 Project

WWHA own and manage a portfolio of over 11,500 homes throughout Wales. As part of their responsibilities to maintain the properties, their team of field-based engineers conduct Gas and Electrical safety inspections and surveys. These inspections, processed electronically and then updated on the back-office system to create a certificate – a process which required a high level of resource to keep up with demand.

A Collaborative Approach

Working in collaboration with WWHA, Velocity IT developed a digital solution to enable the field-based engineering team to generate gas and electricity compliancy certificates on a tablet device, following an inspection. The K2 build presented a solution that worked regardless of internet connectivity and enabled offline data entry and retrospective synchronisation of data with back-office systems.

The Innovative Result

Data from the completed forms is synchronised with the back-office system and further integrated into the Microsoft Dynamics platform. Certificates are automatically produced using the remote-captured data, removing any need for manual data entry or re-keying, both of which presented a time-constraint and elongated the process in the old process.

WWHA said “the process is now working in real-time and the time saved to produce the certificate has been noticeable, in particular the offline capability. The removal of the manual process has enabled both our field and office-based teams to be more productive.”

Is Your Corporation Disruption-Ready?

Is Your Corporation Disruption-Ready?

Thanks to the proliferation of digital technology, many established corporations have been disrupted by start-ups who have embraced technology to gain a competitive edge. Giants such as Blockbuster – who had the opportunity to buy Netflix for just $50 million in 2000 – have gone defunct, while the latter’s market cap recently passed $100 billion. So how does your corporation avoid the same fate? What distinguishes the disruptor from the disrupted?
