Manchester-based data capture specialist WorkMobile has started the decade on a high with a string of new customers across the health, construction, security and telecommunications sectors joining its platform. After winning fibre broadband network providers B4B, security installer Homesafe Group, health and safety firm DP Consultancy (NE), construction company Krol and van fitting and installation service Vanguard Full Fit have all partnered with WorkMobile to improve efficiency and better engage with their remote workers.
WorkMobile’s award-winning app replaces paper, helping to improve operational efficiencies and communication with field workers. It allows users to create digital forms relevant to the specific job in hand, such as site inspections, health and safety forms and timesheets. Users can also use the app to capture all essential business data, including signatures, videos, photographs and GPS locations.
Automatically stored securely in the cloud, this information and documentation can be accessed and shared instantly by relevant employees, helping to improve communication, streamline administrative processes and reduce back-office paperwork. It also helps businesses to develop a clear electronic audit trail to improve compliance and keep their clients fully informed at all stages of a project.
WorkMobile has also significantly expanded its tech team after winning a number of exciting UK projects. Most notably, in September the business won a five-figure grant from Innovate UK for a major project managed by international engineering firm Laing O’Rourke, to improve operative productivity in the construction industry.
Colin Yates, chief supporting officer at WorkMobile, said “We’ve had an extremely successful year at WorkMobile as more and more businesses are recognising the need to revolutionise the way they work.
“Digital transformation principles, such as paperless working, can save companies money, improve their environmental credentials and minimise the risk of crucial documents being lost or misplaced, which can be hugely detrimental to any workforce.
“Given the ever-increasing focus on sustainable business practices, digital transformation and paperless working are only likely to grow in importance in 2020, and we’re proud to be at the forefront of this growing market.”
