The below modules are the minimum standard for Flex Manager solution and are implemented with all solution types.
We build your data on strong foundations to ensure that you get what you need from a trusted, powerful and stable platform.
The internet of things is bringing with a new wave of functionality, enabling hardware to automatically send information to systems which can then further trigger events and all stored in comprehensive data libraries for use.
This new emergence of multiple sources of hardware feeding data through sensors on multiple network types is redefining processes and increasing automation at a dramatic rate.
For example, imagine and asset in a mine automatically feeding product values, maintenance reports, error sensors to a system that can automatically schedule maintenance, read the data to predict if parameters are failing and produce simple reports and dashboards that indicate exactly how the overall performance of hte asset is doing. Now imagine that for access egress, lone working, weather, heart rate, temperature sensors and a variety of other information automatically feeding for reporting purposes. This is the future of smart organisations and how to maximise productivity. Flex Manager has the ability ot integrate with all of the above
The world is focused on lean operations in every industry. How to complete a task in the most efficient way, while not compromising quality or safety. The use of kiosks for different functionality enables management to control processes and provide a simple intuitive way to capture information independently from the ground level up.
We have multiple applications for this such as time and attendance scanning with NFC tags, asset assignment, stock assignment/use, time off requests, orientations, incident reporting and more.
For any information that cannot be generated from an IOT device and needs to be communicated from the ground level to management, this can be a very simple process to achieve that in the smartest way possible.
Attendance / Access Egress
The use of cards to or “chips” to open doors and scan attendance times has been around for a long time.
The use of the NFC technology means that these cards can also be used in mainstream devices, you cant scan a MIFARE or RFID tag on a mobile device that doenst have purpose-built hardware but you can scan an NFC tag with any generic mobile device.
This provides a distinct advantage and reusability when integrated through Flex Manager.
We work with world-leading hardware solutions providers such as HID Global and BRIVO to integrate their access control systems to Flex Manager ensuring you can keep track of all time and attendance, access/egress and time off management form a single location for both contractors and employees.
Near Field Communication is a wireless technology that allows for the transfer of data such as text or numbers between two NFC enabled devices. NFC tags, for example, stickers contain small microchips with little antennas which can store a small amount of information for transfer to another NFC device, such as a mobile phone.
They provide a number of benefits over current technologies: Bar codes/QR Codes – Can be damaged, cant be written in the field, requires 3rd party hardware. RFID, reads a large area so doesn’t contain a one to one relationship i.e. could allow for inspections to be completed, needs 3rd part hardware or a specific device to scan tags.
They are a cost-effective solution which can be embedded in almost anything to suit the required need i.e. rugged tags, cable ties, stickers, cards etc. you probably already have a few in your wallet!
The introduction of mobile devices to the industry has changed the landscape permanently.
They offer workers greater flexibility, enhance workflows, improve communications, and help to make users more efficient and productive.
At CGA we optimise the use of the devices to capture information on the ground while ensuring that we control the amount of data and battery usage as to not interfere with general use.
Android and iOS devices have independent native apps that can be used to reduce paperwork, administrative time and create better workflows through a company.
