Personal Profile

This provides access to the logged in the users overview area. The key to this is aits all about that individual, their team and their actions. Here there are a variety of links to a module such as E-learning, incident reporting, tasks, inspections, time-off requests etc. The majority of users will end up with these "restricted" profiles with access to their assigned work via apps and this view.
Scheduled Reporting
Scheduled Reporting

Scheduled Reporting

Scheduled reports are ways of communicating large amounts of information based on current, past or upcoming timelines at a set frequency. Each module has a list of sample reports i.e. Upcoming Training / Completed Inspections / Active Tasks, which then can be filtered to locations, categories and further to allow precise reporting of what the end-user requires. These reports assist in the management of resources and overview of performance to...
Communications
Communications

Communications

The communications module allows the administrators access to control the alerts & notifications at triggered event times based on the actions of users or automated algorithms. Each module has a set of events that the administrator can choose to enable or disable notifications per trigger. They can then customise the messages and set the method of communication i.e. SMS / Email / System Messages / Flex News Feed There are...
Dashboards
Dashboards

Dashboards

Dashboards are designed to give you an updated view for display purposes. Select from the list of drop-down blocks associated with your system modules, configure the filters and adjust the size, save and view on the URL, that simple. For example, you could have a dashboard in a reception showing # people onsite, compliance score, last incident date of type X in days, Last 4 audit results of type Y...
Applications
Applications

Applications

The mobile applications are designed to gather info at the source and communicate this up through predefined workflows enabling the capture of integral data for business management and compliance. The applications work as seamlessly with the system to ensure that data is managed and captured effectively based on the system administrators design. Work offline and send information the next time you have connectivity and use a host of smart features...
Notifications
Notifications

Notifications

There are a variety of ways in which notifications can send to employees, some of which are registered in more detail here in this list: Push Notifications - Mobile Device - Appears on-screen to notify the user of actions Scheduled Reporting - Reports preset to send specific criteria at set intervals Alerts & Notifications - As actions occur, can trigger emails / sms etc. System Notifications - An internal mail...
Administration
Administration

Administration

Customise key elements of the system to build your corporate branding into the system, organise module menus define high-level settings and allow your corporate branding to filter through the system, reports, notifications and even applications. With items such as uploading company branding and imager, assigning company colours to text and even setting out the selectable language versions, this allows you to tailor the solutions feel to your way of working....
Locations
Locations

Locations

This is a comprehensive view of any information related to the location (this is a customisable keyword to suit your terminology). From a managers perspective, this is the place to go to view all interactions on the system with this site, its employees and link to other modules. For example, you can see the number of employees assigned to this site, completed/scheduled audits, full active/outstanding training and entire asset list....
Analytics
Analytics

Analytics

The analytics section of the Flex Manager Solution provides in-depth access to your information in graphical representation. This allows you to mark out trends in your data and focus in on areas to improve. Flex is designed to maximise the capture of data from the ground in the simplest format, this area is where all that information can be used to make key business decisions with close to real-time data....

IOT Devices

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

Kiosks

Kiosks

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

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.

NFC Tags

NFC Tags

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!

Mobile Devices

Mobile Devices

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.
