CompNow introduced NPS to the Zutak toolset and mobile content delivery platform. “We worked closely with CompNow and they proved to me its advantages for SMBs: Zutak is well designed and easy to navigate; with no coding skills or software development experience required; and it’s completely affordable,” Jarryd says.
With CompNow’s training program Jarryd was able to run with Zutak and design NPS’ core in-house App, including its user interface and user experience. Jarryd was also able to integrate AroFlo, their job management software, directly into the NPS App, giving his team centralised access to all of their job management, scheduling, asset management and inventory management systems.
Zutak provides NPS with full branding control over all elements of the NPS App’s user interface and content. New and old content can easily uploaded and updated in the NPS App from any web browser in real time via the Zutak web admin portal.
Available to all staff via company iPads and iPhones, the NPS App incorporates the latest plumbing regulations, standards, guidelines, safety information and emergency procedures. It houses the contract specific information for each client, and details such as clothing stipulations and customer sensitivities. Administrative elements include staff qualifications, contacts, toolbox minutes and staff leave requests.
Zutak has security and flexibility built in. Its push notification capability sends high alert messages (Total Fire Ban days and severe weather warnings) to all users. Notifications can also be sent to sub groups or an individual. The App has sign in authentication to restrict content to specific users. In another innovative use of Zutak, NPS discreetly pushes the App on to all company managed mobile devices. NPS App is not available on the App store, rather it is internally distributed via the AirWatch mobile device management tool.
