A UK-based SME has developed a workflow and logistics management suite to enable companies with off-site workers to efficiently deploy those workers and complete required administrative tasks paperlessly. The SME is looking to enter new geographical markets, especially in Europe, and is offering its system to partners with off-site workers or with connections to such companies under a services agreement, commercial services agreement or a distribution services agreement.
Many companies over the course of their activities have workers operating off-site. This kind of business activity can range from fitting new windows to maintenance and repair of chemical plants. All of these activities will have administration requirements such as the completion of forms. Most companies carry out these administrative tasks on paper, which has several drawbacks including the risk of loss of important information and miscommunication due to handwritten notes. In addition to this a lot of companies have difficulty in the efficient deployment of workers when they are off-site. It is not always easy for a central office to know where the nearest worker is to a new job and this lack of logistics communication can lead to increased time and costs as workers are assigned when a closer colleague was available.
A UK-based SME has developed a workflow and logistics management system that enables completely paperless working off-site. This system enables the completion of required administration and forms as well as attachment of required files such as photographs. The completed files can then be securely sent to the central office preventing loss and miscommunication. The system also enables he central office to see where the off-site workers are and so enable them to efficiently deploy them to new jobs, saving travel time and costs. This also helps in terms of health and safety monitoring.
The UK-based SME has deployed this system in the UK and Ireland as well as the US and is now looking at entering new geographical markets, especially Europe. The SME is looking to partner with companies who have off-site workers and so would benefit from the system with the partnership envisaged as a services agreement. The SME is also looking for partners with knowledge of and connections with sectors, such as the engineering sector, that will enable the SME to enter new markets by acting as an agent or distributor. This partnership is envisaged as a commercial services agreement or a distribution services agreement.
The UK-based SME's workflow and logistics management system has the following advantages:
Enables completely paperless working ensuring no miscommunication due to hand written forms or missing / incomplete forms.
Enables efficient deployment of off-site workers, reducing time and costs.
Compatible with existing process and IT systems.
Can be adapted to be compliant with regulatory and reporting requirements of different sectors.
The UK-based SME is offering it's workflow management system to companies who have staff that work off-site, for example in the engineering and construction industries, who have to complete forms and other paperwork as part of their tasks. The SME will work with the partner company to adapt and integrate the workflow management system into the partner company's internal systems. It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of a services agreement.
The UK SME would also like to contact agents and distributors working with suitable companies to help them access new markets, especially in Europe. These partners should have connections within the engineering, chemicals and construction industry with companies that have off-site workers. It is envisaged that these partnerships will take the form of commercial agency agreements or distribution services agreements.
