Flowfinity Mobile Field Data Capture Solution Cuts Costs for Telecom Outside Plant Utility Contractor
RTS Associates saves 30% on field labor costs and improves customer service with Flowfinity mobile solution
VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 7, 2014 - Flowfinity Wireless Inc., a proven provider of enterprise mobile apps, today released a new case study featuring RTS Associates. This utility contractor replaced paper inspection forms with a mobile data collection solution to reduce additional labor costs by 30%. The solution was designed in less than a day.
Prior to adopting Flowfinity, the company's field personnel would record inspection data on paper and spend evening hours transcribing information into spreadsheets. This led to delays, inaccuracies and high labor costs.
The management team selected Flowfinity, a flexible mobile form and workflow platform, to replace paper inspection forms with a mobile solution. They achieved a quick deployment by opting for a cloud hosted solution and Flowfinity Professional Services to customize the app. The solution was designed to match the exact deliverables required by RTS Associates' clients, and can be easily updated when client requirements change.
Field personnel at RTS Associates now enter inspection information in iPads throughout the workday, and the data is immediately sent to management for review. With more accurate, real-time data, management has successfully reduced the time required to review project results from several days to just 20 minutes. The faster turnaround time allows clients to receive job reports faster.
"Once I saw the capabilities the Flowfinity mobile platform and how you could customize it, I knew it was exactly what we needed. It's a very agile platform," said Ryan Hart, Director of Wireless Operations, RTS Associates. "I did a quick calculation on the cost of the app compared to what I spend on labor for data entry, and saw that the software would pay for itself almost immediately."
