Equipment Upgrade Program
PROBLEM: A popular retail chain needed to upgrade its in-store equipment systems for hundreds of locations. As a part of the process, each store’s existing equipment type, location, and capabilities had to be identified and assessed.
SOLUTION: We developed a software app that allowed the company’s operations personnel to gather the necessary information and photographs from each store using an iPad. The data was then automatically uploaded to a database that we used to make recommendations and define scopes for each site. Armed with our reports and recommendations, the store managers were able to review, adjust, and plan for new equipment as needed. Using this collaborative effort between the client and program team, we developed a prototype for the installation of the equipment and rolled out a set of construction documents for each store – quickly, efficiently, and accurately.
