Work@Scale: Cloud-based Geospatial Project Management Solutions
The fundamentals of managing a project from start to finish require a team of individuals with different talents and skills. However, technological intervention across industries can potentially automate every possible aspect of a business process. Comprehending the fact that maximizing the productivity of all stakeholders can make all the difference between success and failure of that project, Dan Flemming and his team at Work@Scale have been meticulously working towards putting enterprises at ease, in executing their large scale, geographically diverse projects.
Using traditional project management solutions, large scale geographically distributed deployments almost always deliver outcomes in which expected productivity is not achieved, deadlines are missed, and thus the cost incurred is high. Work@Scale believes the key to addressing the fundamental problems of speed and scale is to address productivity and transparency through automation, optimization, and visualization. Following a principle of ‘automate wherever possible and optimize where it makes sense,’ Work@Scale has re-invented the approach to telecom infrastructure rollouts at scale. The company’s solutions have been aimed at effectively increasing the productivity of their clients. Moreover, their approach to automation is unique, right from the very objective of it.
When it comes to project management, enterprises generally are stuck at the basic stage of the lifecycle— the planning of thousands if not millions of dependency-driven tasks spread across broad geographies.
A simple idea is often the best and we've turned a simple idea into a compelling way to manage projects
It is quite strenuous for the companies to fathom the location, sequence, and methodology of executing these projects. This is where Work@Scale comes into the picture and delivers the best, right from scratch. “Through our patented methodology and system, we have adopted an approach where we define work directly from the design in terms of what needs to be done, where it needs to be done, and in what sequence it needs to be done,” affirms Flemming. “We utilize the capabilities of today’s technology to manage data end-to-end in a revolutionary way.”
The company unfailingly caters to sub-contractors, prime contractors, project managers, and network owners. Work@Scale takes a scope of work that describes what needs to be done and then breaks that down into the smallest components of work that each of the stakeholders is very familiar with and transacts in. At all times, project stakeholders are looking at the same data at the same time, and on a map, like never before. “A simple idea is often the best and we have turned a simple idea into a compelling way to manage projects,” adds Flemming. Work@Scale works bottom-up in extending their services to these stakeholders. Additionally, the company’s field solutions ensure effective communication of progress of the project right from the field to the administrative office, across geographies. The company also brings the ability to deliver leading edge solutions in a cost-effective and easy-to-implement manner. From being able to modify their solutions over time, to simplifying the software configuration process, Work@Scale guarantees a seamless experience for the enterprises.
Walking on a road paved with challenges, Work@Scale is committed to mitigating them and widening their service extensions in the process. With a firm foot in Australia and New Zealand, the company plans to focus on constructing innovative ways to deliver their solutions domestically. The firm is set to establish its footprint in the United States by the second half of 2018.
