Improving internal processes with workforce management apps

We improved the client's internal processes by completely automating all manual operations within the company.
Technology Kotlin, Ratpack, TypeScript, React, Redux, Node.js, Kubernetes, AWS, Docker
Scope backend, frontend, UI/UX

Our client is a global grocery and general merchandise retailer. With around a million employees spread around the world, good management solutions are crucial.

Facing the problem

Previously some of the client’s internal operations had been done manually, like work schedules or management of workers’ hostels worldwide. For the customer, it was a time-consuming process charged with many costs and errors. In addition, employees did not have easy access to much useful information or there were not presented clearly.

Our improvement – full automatization

We improved the client’s internal processes by completely automating all manual operations within the company. As a result, we have prepared (backend and frontend, UI/UX issues) 6 applications focusing on various areas related to employees’ work-life. See the examples below.

 

Examples of our workforce management apps

1.

Workers’ hostels – a progressive app to manage worker’s hostels in countries where our client operates. It is a global solution that is expanded and customized per region. We are guided by the corporate culture of each country and cooperate with its representatives in creating content – to make it as clear and useful as possible.

2.

Workflow – management app that helps employees in organizing their work schedules. Dynamic, personalized calendars, individual working hours tracing – this is the main area of our interest. Moreover, we are building also a multi-platform PWA application dedicated to managers that enables employee management from beginning to end.

Technologies we used

Technical wise, we use Kotlin as the main programming language, Ratpack as a web server, Speck, and Assertk for tests. As for UI: TypeScript, React, Redux, Node.js, Kubernetes, AWS, Docker.

 

The result

It was a worthwhile investment, for both:

  • the client – a drastic reduction of operating costs – savings of the millions of pounds
  • its employees – about 1 million active users, greater employee involvement because they have easy access to much useful information
We were able to obtain a very high adaptation rate – applications were made in such a way that even non-technical people are able to take full advantage of all their possibilities.
