Cross-Device Data Visualization Dashboard: Adaptive Design, Drag-and-Drop Widgets
Hempel, a global coating supplier.
The client engaged Softeq to implement a mobile app that would enable its employees commissioned to a customer facility to make more informed decisions regarding optimal coatings usage while on the go. Softeq stood out of the competition for its diversified mobile project portfolio and solid track record of successful mobile solution deliveries testified by customers many of whom have tapped the company’s skills in multiple endeavors.
The team was to create an iOS client server app that would support on-the-go survey completion, data processing, and report generation capabilities.
The survey app is designed to assist planners, engineers and maintenance personnel in identifying a recommended coating system during a facility inspection to maximize the asset’s life, while minimizing costs.
The inspecting specialist assesses the condition of the facility and fills out a detailed survey marking the assets requiring special treatment before applying the coatings. The app supports photo upload and commenting. The results are then sent to a web server for processing and returned to the app in the form of a pdf report with specific recommendations on the facility treatment and coating application.
A specially created web-based admin area allows managing and organizing surveys received from mobile devices.
The solution protection is ensured with a secure authentication protocol enabled within Hempel ADFS, a standards-based service that allows secure sharing of identity information.
Softeq’s team employed the Waterfall-based software development process due to well-defined requirements and scope availability.
The team delivered the app in line with the customer’s expectations. The solution is expected to boost employee’s productivity by facilitating on-the-go critical data processing, while providing stronger foothold for informed decision-making.
