Warning "Hanging On" Is Destroying Your Health
Some years ago, I worked for Hilton Park Lane, London. We used paper forms and many ring binders.
A few years later working elsewhere, Word, Excel spreadsheets, emails.
Workflows were clunky. Inevitable some of our information was inaccurate.
People held information in people's their heads. Add lost or damaged files and decisions tended to be more subjective than factual.
It was challenging to identify which assets were uneconomic. What processes needed improvement.
Such antiquated decision processes led to downtime. This resulted in higher staff stress levels.
Increased the number of health and safety breaches. We incurred expensive downtime costs.
For example, faulty equipment hadn't been reported or serviced.
If Power Apps were available to me then. I would have created and deployed applications myself.
Because IT involvement wouldn't necessarily be required. Many of our existing back-office processes could have been automated.
Staff would have been able to access apps both on and offline access. Thus, overcoming Wi-fi black spots.
This capability would ensure the required steps to get the job done were adhered to. Added benefits minimal data input errors because transposition errors are eliminated.
Our decisions would have been based upon accurate real-time verifiable data.
Thinking back, I know my first app would have been an inventory audit app.
