App development and managed services

Cloud App development and managed services

We help our clients with their digital transformation projects by building custom web and mobile applications, using Google Cloud Platform (GCP), our extensive experience and industry best practice.
Our certified consultants and engineers design and deliver intuitive and secure apps that help you transform specific business processes or develop new digital models, making your organisation more productive, innovative and mobile.

We develop solutions using Google Cloud mobile, cloud and maps technologies as well as integrations with other systems in your business.  The solutions we build for you are typically web applications or services which are built to run on GCP.  They may also include client applications (e.g. Android app, Chrome extension or Chrome Application) which interact with a backend solution or a third-party system.

Digitisation of mobile test collections

Our customer collects and tests biological samples on behalf of clients nationally.  The paper based collections in the field required manual, error prone, re-keying of data into legacy systems for tests and reporting at head office.

The end-to-end automation and digitisation has removed paper from the process, providing data security and a complete audit trail.  Not only are jobs processed up to 25% faster, but Head Office can now assess the number of technicians required and measure performance.  The automation of invoicing and expenses is also saving time, effort and over 25,000 sheets of paper per annum.

Digital enablement of mobile workforce

The Rentokil team is mobile and visits customer locations to perform pest control services internationally.  The team was using paper to draw a floorplan and mark it up with pest control points. This was  sent to back office to be digitised and uploaded into Rentokil’s service management systems

The digital app based solution has enabled 14,000 frontline colleagues via cloud-connected Android based apps for customer installation and servicing. Not only is the solution improving efficiency and quality of pest control service, it also provides a competitive advantage in highly regulated markets.
