Bespoke software for all platforms
Manufacturing - Mobile Applications
As the largest independent producer of pre-stressed bridge beams in Britain, ABM Precast Solutions offer a comprehensive range of beam profiles as well as bespoke reinforced and post-tensioned products. Having been a part of many of the country’s major civil engineering projects, ABM have the capability to design and manufacture a vast range of precast concrete products from small coping units to massive structural components weighing over 120 tonnes.
Before StyleTech developed the app, our client’s customers got the information they required of beams from an extensive Data Book containing over 250 different types of beams using manual calculations.
Many calculations were necessary to work out which beam was suitable and each beam had to be worked through until the appropriate one could be found. Although the Data Book provided diagrams, ABM wanted to provide their customers with a faster and easier method for choosing the most appropriate beams.
What we delivered
Using only six simple questions, the app StyleTech developed accurately narrows down all the beams in the Data Book and will generate a list of all the beams that would be suitable and match the requirements.
The app provides in-depth and precise data on all the key engineering properties of each beam and all information is the same as that of the Data Book so nothing is lost. Additionally the Data Book can be accessed from the app for ease of use and the app can be used without an internet connection anywhere.
Specific diagrams are also generated for each beam with highlighted information to make them as clear as possible.
The app, which is the first in its field, saves a considerable amount of time when initially selecting beams for a project. There is no need for manual calculations as all the information is at the engineer’s finger tips.
With no loading times, results can be calculated instantly and allowing our client’s customers time to focus on other areas. The interface is smooth and easy to use while still providing clear and concise data.
ABM recently rebranded and the app was developed to match their new website design, it fits in seamlessly with their brand while still holding a native design for each operating system it is used on.
Human Resources Portal
Ideal Standard International approached StyleTech looking for a system to better manage and assess the performance and development of employees across the company. It was crucial that the system ensured an effective appraisal system, linked to appropriate career goals and challenges, with progress reviewed at regular intervals. The company already had an online system, but it offered no clear method of assessment or review for the Human Resources department with regard to quality of objectives and appraisals, and the consistent management of staff development. A system which gave detailed, updated analysis of performance targets, management, and achievements, was therefore a requirement...
Ideal Standard Intranet
Usability and accessibility are crucial factors in the success of any system and StyleTech’s brief was to engage as many employees as possible. Tackling this challenge amongst a diversely skilled and dispersed staff, from employees with PC’s on their desk to employees in the factory areas whose work does not ordinarily call for IT skills, required a particularly creative approach. StyleTech’s solution uses a “portal café” with touch-screen kiosk technology installed into canteens and walk-ways...
