Low-code development platform Formbird gets organisations big and small automated
One of Formbird’s smallest customer operates a plastics factory with 15 staff. They wanted an application to manage the hand over between shifts.
You may know Formbird as the low-code development platform behind enterprise-grade solutions such as the works management application for the water utilities “Formbird Water Force” or the transport industry-aligned fleet management app “Formbird FLEET“. Did you know Formbird is equally at home in a small business environment?
United Plastics, operates a plastics factory with 15 staff. They wanted an application to manage the hand over between shifts. Their facility has 20 machines which all need to have regular checks for safety and performance.
We started with some staff training to go through the basics. Once introduced, they caught on quickly using the documentation to answer any questions.
They were ready to go and fully operational once the son-in-law built half a dozen forms.
When the new shift starts, they get a detailed report of any breakages or failures at change over, including photographs for documentation.
Before getting Formbird up and running, the handover was ad-hoc with a mixture of spreadsheets and email.
Now they have a straightforward control mechanism that enforces safety and quality processes. And they get this at a monthly cost in the hundreds, not the thousands, that would typically be associated with this type of custom process management app.
The best bit is that this hand over app is now ready to go as a part of any Formbird App.
We see this as one of Formbird’s great strengths and a significant achievement. A small scale operation can now quickly get all the advantages of Formbird, in the same way, as a large enterprise. The fact that Formbird can operate at any scale is a testament to the capability of the technology.
