Intoware, the workflow specialist, has launched a powerful custom reporting ‘tool’ for its workflow platform, WorkfloPlus that allows unique data reports to be created and shared to help streamline plant maintenance, safety and compliance.
All businesses work in their own unique way, there is no standard approach and no single solution that works perfectly. This is why Intoware has built a new custom feature for its automation platform, WorkfloPlus, so users can create custom reports which means the data they use is always 100 per cent relevant to their needs.
Intoware’s workflow automation platform, WorkfloPlus guides employees through a process from beginning to end to increase efficiency. It replaces paper-driven processes, executing them across systems and people, managing tasks and uses data capture output for continual data analytics to drive improvements and efficiencies.
But if you are the H&S manager requiring safety analytics from a maintenance inspection, accessing this specific data from a ‘one size fits all’ report can be time-consuming. Intoware’s custom reporting solves this problem by providing analytics that are only as detailed as the user requires.
Sean Hennelly, chief operations officer, Intoware, explains: “Customised reporting helps to streamline key internal performance processes, rather than giving users standard report data. It allows them greater flexibility instead as they can extract what they need from the custom reports and share this data in a range of outputs including, PDF, Excel, MS Word that are automatically emailed to the rest of the team.
“On the factory floor, staff complete digital forms on their mobile app that replicate the paper forms they’re already familiar with. They can quickly select the task to be executed such as an inspection of an individual component, it could be one of 600,000 at an industrial plant, but they can still instantly access workflow data on that component from previous inspections.
“A step-by-step guide takes the user through the selection of the right safety equipment or PPE that is required for the inspection and when the job is finished, they can take a photo for audit purposes. If a component were to be found faulty, a new branch of workflow data is created in WorkfloPlus, triggering another maintenance job, this data is captured and synced with the server – so the entire process helps save the user time and effort, reducing the opportunity for error.”
WorkfloPlus with custom reporting helps create a quicker, more connected industrial workplace to achieve greater process efficiencies and reduce costs.
