Stanford University has a work force of over 200 maintenance technicians supporting a large, modern high-tech campus. Stanford has a long history of using mobile computing devices to assist their work force. Looking for a better product to replace their existing proprietary mobile solution, Stanford turned to AppTree Software.
They chose the AppTree Revolution because they had requirements that their current system was unable to meet; they wanted to use less expensive commodity devices, they required better performance, and they needed to be able to modify and enhance the system themselves. The AppTree Revolution met their needs. They were able to design the application to meet their requirements for the Land, Buildings and Real Estate division, and for the Stanford School of Medicine.
KENT STATE UNIVERSITY
Kent State University, with an enrollment of over 40,000 students is a large and diverse campus. University employees have a lot of ground to cover and AppTree Revolution's ability to deliver sophisticated mobile features to them in the field, even to areas with no network service, is a critical capability. Kent State's mobile app includes a tremendous amount of functionality related to submitting requests, assigning and scheduling, timekeeping and managing their large inventory or assets and parts. Kent State uses "uber like" features to help technicians in the field, connect with their parts delivery staff. Both technician and delivery personal can communicate they are 'on their way' and use the live mapping features to connect with each other in the field to transfer the parts.
Yale University has a truly mobile work force and they wanted an application that would match their workers step for step. In fact, they named their AppTree mobile app the ‘Yale Mobile Work Force’. The Yale application was designed to meet their exact business processes. Using the AppTree Revolution, they were able to enhance their existing functionality and implement features that would have otherwise required costly customizations to their off-the-shelf maintenance management system.
THE UNIVERSITY OF REGINA
The University of Regina in Saskatchewan Canada uses a cloud based ticketing system to report issues on campus. Using AppTree Revolution, they were able to deploy a comprehensive mobile app to their employees using their current enterprise software vendors out-of-the box web services, without writing a single line of code. Because they already had web services and connectors to their existing system, they were able to quickly deploy their mobile app with a minimum of IT support.
The University of Colorado
The University of Colorado provides enhanced services to employees and faculty with the AppTree Revolution. UC employees can view utilities consumption, request leave, and request keys through self-service web applications built on the AppTree Revolution. Warehouse personnel can look up parts, issue parts and conduct physical inventories using Android and iOS mobile devices all with the AppTree Revolution.
Wawa, a large convenience store retailer with over 600 locations, selected the AppTree Framework to enhance the collaboration with their store managers, vendors, contractors and internal Wawa employees.
Using the AppTree Revolution CORE, Wawa implemented a system to track equipment warranties, assist with vendor selection and dispatching and providing a way for vendors and contractors to charge time for asset maintenance at their 600 store locations.
Wawa has implemented the mobile clients for iOS and Android to provide all these capabilities and more, directly to their work force in the field such as:
- Upon completion of on-site work, using a short satisfaction survey and digital signature capture to close a work order with store manager approval
- Barcode scanning to verify equipment location, trigger equipment moves and to add additional pieces of equipment to a work order
- Notifications for new assignments including calculating the most efficient routes and providing driving directions.
- Automated time-clock for clocking in and out of store locations using GPS technology
- Site survey and store audit capabilities
