One of the apps is used for data gathering and documentation, the other for the rollout of the network and the third one for the qualitiy management process.
The project goals - gains in efficiency, reducing costs and improving data quality - have already been topped since the launch of the apps: The processes of data gathering and installation was 4 times faster than before and the cost savings 10 times higher than the apps development costs.
The «ewz iPad Apps» supported one of the biggest swiss energy service provider in the planning and rollout of Zurich's fiber optic network, which now is available to 240'000 households. As the apps were used by many different collaborating companies, a big challenge was to ensure an easy operability.
The apps helped ewz to substantially reduce overall installtion costs and improve data quality. They were shortlisted for the «Mobile Business Best Practice Award» of the University of St. Gallen in 2016.
