About The Project

Challenge

The customer needed to modernize the old maintenance management system that didn’t match the company’s existing workflows. The results of a technical audit showed that we need to fully redesign the old data structure and replace the outdated technologies.

Blackthorn Vision had to synchronize field and office operations for effective maintenance activities across all locations. The main project goals included:

  • Reduce the amount of paperwork at the main office
  • Reduce manual processing of hard-copy reports from operatives
  • Automate work processes and manually managed sets of rules

Solutions

Blackthorn Vision created two solutions to achieve the needed functionality: the desktop application for the main office and the tablet application for worksites. The two solutions share a single database, providing communication between on-site specialists and office managers. This approach allows displaying projects, work records, and other vital data in real-time.

Since the modernized system required an advanced data structure, we started by redesigning the database. Our engineers adjusted the database to new user requirements and migrated the old data to the cloud infrastructure. Cloud computing has allowed us to build a secure and dynamic platform that meets the current business needs.

    • Track work records

    • Create requests for new work
    • Log overtimes
    • Add new work records
