KLOC built a bespoke web application to include all the complex features initially identified. Due to the flexibility of Laravel, KLOC were also able to add a significant number of additional features as the project progressed to not only meet Deeland Limited’s business requirements but surpass their expectations.
The custom mobile app fully integrates with the web application, allowing cleaning staff to login and see their task list, confirm the status of tasks, show addresses of sites and add photos on Health & Safety and task checklists. Operatives can only see their tasks, once they have completed a risk assessment of the site in question, they can take pictures of the site they are working on, record those pictures against the site address, and check off tasks as they are completed – all in real time. This significantly simplified the process for staff leading to saving in both time and the amount of paperwork created.
On the 27th June 2018, Nick Dee Shapland, Managing Director of Deeland Limited decided that the database with its web application and mobile app development had opened up new business opportunities. So Nick decided to demerge the ownership of the software from Deeland Limited and set up a new company Taskport Limited, which would give him the opportunity to carry on working closely with KLOC in the future development of the Web Application.
