Mobile app to replace a web order management
realized with Omnis Studio in a few months
Alphaplan AG decided to completely redesign the online functionality of its facilities management software: their previous web-based application for time recording and order processing had become somewhat outdated. They wanted to convert the solution to a modern, user-friendly mobile application in order to give all employees access to all relevant & timely information, and make work processes more efficient. At the same time, the company wanted to add new functions to further improve the services provided to customers and create new offerings, and to fully integrate the new app into the existing Omnis ERP system.
Alphaplan wanted to complete the development as quickly as possible with their own team of two developers, while the change over from the old to the new solution had to be completed during ongoing operations.
Thanks to the high productivity of the Omnis Studio development environment, these goals were achieved within just a few months. The new mobile application was created with a modern user-friendly interface that makes it easier for employees to organize their work.
The efficiency of the app was significantly increased with the easy to use job recording function, an enhanced appointment management and reminder function, plus a new central event management function that uses various media (phone, email, written, customer or user portal) as well as a new event journal. At the same time, these functions ensure that all documentation and administration is stored reliably. Employees can now access all relevant data, such as area lists with all management details, property master data, documents, plans, technology, special instructions (e.g. for winter services). In addition, the tradesmen can be assigned to the respective property at any time and from any location, thus ensuring the high quality of service for which Alphaplan is renowned.
The new mobile app is already being used by many of Alphaplan’s housekeepers, gardeners, parking lot inspectors, cleaners and tradesmen, and the user base is constantly expanding. The feedback on the new solution has been very positive.
