Current Mobile Projects at Pillar 

Alongside our ongoing browser-based web application work, we're also very busy on a range of mobile projects right now:-

  • Ongoing improvements to our own Profess Time Manager mobile app, 'Profess MyTime'
  • A very large tailored project for Gemco Service Ltd (see below)
  • A Smartwatch edition of Profess MyTime
  • Profess Property Manager surveying for tablets

Amongst our longer-term mobile projects list is a mobile front-end for Profess Works/Road Cost Manager, allowing for the capture of Labour daysheets (timesheets) alongside job-based usage of materials, plant and fleet.

Bespoke Mobile development project: UKASdis tablet solution

Our mobile development team are currently working on a large project for GEMCO Service Ltd (part of the Stenhøj Group).    

Delivering over 90,000 UK-wide calibrations of garage equipment used in M.O.T. testing, Gemco's 130 engineers need a tablet-based mobile device which enables them to supplement their SolarVista Field Service Management call record (already sent to Engineers in the field on a mobile device) with the pre and post calibration machine readings.

The readings are processed on the device (irrespective of mobile coverage), validated for acceptance range checks, then - when back on-line - synch'd via our API to both the call and our back-office web solution already in place at Gemco's Winsford laboratory.

The result: a UKAS-accredited certificate in a low-admin, high efficiency mobile solution.

What our Clients Say

The Northern Ireland Housing Executive has been using Profess since 1999, firstly in Design & Property Services Division, then in Direct Labour Organisation, and more recently in Finance Division. Profess and Profess Contract Manager were chosen to replace a number of existing core business critical systems which had come to the end of their useful life. Pillar has always worked with us to enhance and develop their systems to ensure that all our functional requirements and business processes have been fully met.

Profess Contract Manager is essential to running our business and delivering to our internal and external customers; from budget monitoring, scheme management, works order management, through to paying our business partners. We have been able to streamline a number of our business processes as a result of using Profess Contract Manager, as the system now integrates across a number of key Departments.

Dealing with Pillar has always been a pleasure as the staff are very friendly and responsive to any issues or queries raised. The support received has been invaluable and is second to none.

More recently, we have embarked on further development of the system with Pillar, as we replace a further three systems in Housing & Regeneration Division. When completed, we will have an incredible, fully joined up, business management and reporting tool.

Profess is essential to our business needs…it provides reporting for our clients and the Cash flow screen is critical to our future predictions and commitments, especially in this time of restricted finance within Local Government.

Designing mobile apps WITH clients

We believe in getting a design in front of the client as quickly as possible or - even better - build the design WITH the client wherever possible.

With limited real-estate on mobile devices and touch-screen being the norm, designing the interface is probably more important for mobile devices than with traditional browser development. That's why we use a design tool that is quick to use, easy to understand and even easier to share: for both mobile and browser application design we use Balsamiq Mockups.

Here's a snapshot of Ryan's design for the Gemco UKASdis mobile application.

Balsamiq is so easy to use, it now forms part of our developer interview tests. With it we are able to quickly assess a candidates' design strengths, as well as their ability to follow a simple brief.
