Rural Transport's drivers tend to be based in remote regions. Infrequent trips back to the company's offices meant relying on phone calls to communicate vital information. Faced with this information gap, Rural Transport approached its software supplier and asked if there was a simple, smart way to get real-time information to and from drivers in the field via the tablets the company was installing in its trucks.
Using Tabral, Schick has built a time sheet app that is easy for all Schick employees to complete whether in the field or office. They take a minute or two to record the hours they've worked, using job codes and site information from drop down menus. This time sheet data is then delivered to Schick's system via the mobile network.
By using the Tabral platform to build its own smartphone apps, SGS was able to create tools to collect data in the field throughout New Zealand. Now the company's inspectors and engineers can carry out safety assessments on the spot and verify that correct processes have been followed.
The fluidity of the Tabral software solution means that this is just the beginning for Taranaki DHB. There are many more opportunities for them to improve clinical workflows and patient safety. The application of this technology can be utilized in a variety of settings.
