No more missing paperwork - Paperwork received by the office within 20 seconds of an engineer sending it
"We looked at many other ways of getting the data back to head office but the big advantage of the digital pen system is that the engineers didn’t need to learn anything new – they can all write "
Safety Systems Distribution is the UK distributor of Bosch radio-based nurse call systems and the main UK distributor of Intercall hard-wired nurse call audio and non-audio systems. They have a growing fleet of engineers to undertake responsive and cyclical maintenance on systems around the UK.
The main focus for Safety Systems was to tighten up on the process of getting Engineers Job Sheets back to the office and reduce the amount of re-keying data. Engineers would attend site and complete duplicated Job Sheets, one copy would be left with the customer and a second copy would be taken or posted back to the office for processing.
SSD were frustrated by the delay in the return of completed paperwork which had an impact on their internal systems, and the potential for lost or missing paperwork and the potential for loss of customer confidence and interruption to cash flow.
Anoto and Management at SSD designed a Digital Pen Solution and back office system that would meet the needs of the business, users and customers alike. The solution now means that all forms are completed by engineers with a digital pen whilst out in the field. Mobile phones are used to transmit the data from the pen to a back office system. Data captured is then available for office staff to view in the portal.
Copy of paperwork left with customer
Paperwork received by the office within 20 seconds of engineer sending
Faxing/posting back to office is no longer required
Time consuming data entry is no longer required
Reduction in administration time
Risk of ‘lost’ paperwork significantly reduced
Improved cash flow
No more frustration through loss or delayed paperwork through the introduction of a digital Pen and Paper solution . Loss of customer confidence and interruption to cash flow have all reduced as a direct result.
We looked at many other ways of getting the data back to head office but the big advantage of the digital pen system is that the engineers didn’t need to learn anything new – they can all write
By implementing a data capture solution, we have extended the capabilities of digital pen technology. It’s good to have a mobile solution that grows.
