There are times that we cannot name our client publicly (developers must have our little secrets, mustn’t we?) But we can provide you with a link to our development partner’s site where complete information is available, so checkmate! In such cases, we may call this client either Mr. Coy or just the Client. This time our Client was a US-based world leader using RFID technology in the precast concrete industry. It provides infrastructure manufacturers with a system for tagging and tracking concrete and steel structures. After collaborating with us and our partner Ascendle, the mysterious Client successfully released a brand new product to the market.
The Client initially had an RFID-based Windows desktop and mobile app which leading concrete manufacturers used for tracking and managing infrastructure assets throughout its entire life cycle – from the manufacturing phase to the maintenance process involved after installation. To set up a process of tracking information, the Client’s RFID tags were embedded in concrete or attached to steel structures.
When the Client realized how necessary it was to keep up with technological trends, they decided to transfer their RFID information tracking system to a web, iOS and Android applications. In search of intelligent solutions, they referred to Ascendle, who took over project management and assigned EGO to development.
Making man’s life easier with a great user experience gets us enthused! This time our goal was to develop from scratch a handy and convenient working tool, consisting of the web and Android mobile applications, with which Quality Control Managers and production workers could ease up a bit and perform their daily duties simpler.
We developed the cloud-hosted Management Portal for QC Managers to make data viewing and reporting flexible and convenient. For workers we created the Android mobile app that helps effortlessly collect the information following a simple step-by-step process, providing the opportunity to know the real-time status of each product in the various stages of manufacturing. Such process optimization reduces production errors and results in significant cost savings.
We specially designed the RFID Tracking System as a powerful and easy-to-use tool with a user-friendly interface for utilization in a hard manufacturing working atmosphere. Have we succeeded? Definitely! [Otherwise, you wouldn’t be on the here reading this] Here’s the proof: this product daily brings real and tangible benefits to thousands of people and dozens of companies.
The RFID Tracking System is in high demand and active use, so the project is continuously adding new valuable features and bug-fixing support.
