On behalf of Wihlborgs (the leading property company in the Öresund region), Sigma has developed mobile integration for Wihlborgs property administrators. All remodeling and new construction is carried out with the assistance of contractors. Wihlborgs works with about different 1,100 contractors. The purpose of integration was to simplify and better organize the orders that are sent to the contractors. The reasons for this are many, but mainly to:- Gain better control over the number of orders placed- Gain better control over the right contractors receiving the right orders- Give contractors the opportunity to confirm placed orders- Gain better control over who is responsible for project work environmentsWihlborgs chose a mobile solution so as to be able to immediately place orders on-site and reduce administration in the form of duplication of work. An important requirement was to be able to use the solution offline. Not all job sites have 3G/4G/WiFi coverage, such as sites in basements/culverts and so forth. Depending on the user, only the contractors that are linked to the region the user works in are listed. In other words, users in Helsingborg only see the contractors who have valid agreements for work in the Helsingborg region. Besides the actual orders, the users can also attach pictures to the orders.A web portal has been developed for the contractors and Wihlborgs' administrators. The administrators can view orders, administer users and follow up orders for each property. The contactors can approve or decline orders. They can naturally also view orders and the pictures linked to them. This gives smaller contractors the capability to maintain control over their orders from Wihlborgs.The mobile app has been developed for iOS and Android. The web portal and all integrations have been developed in .NET C#.
