PINDAN Asset Management

Executive Summary

Pindan, a large construction company, that funds, builds and manages property Australia wide, has been operating for more than 40 years. It’s Asset Management Business has a large mobile workforce, made up of employees and sub-contractors. Some of the mobile workforce operates paper based and do not have access to real time information about the work they are doing. Most work is performed remotely using manual paper processes to capture information, which is then re-keyed into the business systems by the back-office team. This exposes error and inefficiency due to double entry.

For some of Pindan’s smaller external service providers the cost of hardware presented a barrier to entry for working real time in the Pindan environment.
