Using workflow to simplify data collection
Manual data recording and processing is the norm in the engineering industry. For BGC Engineering, collecting information at many of its remote project sites had its challenges due to lack of connectivity. Unfortunately, obtaining high-quality information in the traditional data-collection model is expensive, often requiring significant effort to eliminate transcription errors and missing data.
In order to improve data collection efficiency for multiple, large-scale projects and keep onsite engineers focused on high-value strategic efforts, BGC turned to Nintex and IT partner Dynamic Owl to extend its SharePoint investment and optimize field processes.
Versatile, agile forms for an empowered mobile workforce
Working with its partner Dynamic Owl, a Vancouver-based IT consulting firm, BGC found a way to make the most of engineers’ time in the field, reducing the need for significant data vetting and corresponding site visits. Now, users in the field can quickly and easily create or change forms on the fly—a bonus for engineers working in remote locations.
Nintex enables BGC to create and deploy an integrated solution that empowers its growing mobile workforce to make the most of the company’s existing IT investments. BGC has also leveraged familiar consumer hardware and taken advantage of existing IT investments in Nintex and SharePoint, increasing ROI.
Nintex enables us to maintain the quality of our work while keeping our critical employee and application processes. It came in at a fraction of the cost of an off-the-shelf or custom solution, and delivers immense and immediate value. We couldn’t have made a better choice."
