In Henderson Nevada on June 30th, Steve McBride, CEO of Weever Apps Inc., presented Dan Fowler of Unilever with the 2016 Weever Apps Innovation Award.
The Weever Apps Innovation Award is presented annually to a customer or partner who best drives the values of innovation within their organization, including quality, creativity, accountability and leadership.
“Dan approached Weever Apps early in 2015 with a vision to make his facility in Simcoe Ontario a safer place to work, reduce paper-based processes and improve productivity.” said Steve McBride, CEO Weever Apps. “He wanted to replace the existing paper-based inspection and audit system with an entirely mobile and digital process.”
Dan was chosen for the award from hundreds of new customers and partners from across North America, because of his commitment to innovate processes and improve productivity. The solution has since attracted attention from other Unilever facility managers across North America.
The mobile application uses a system of forms and automated workflows to keep all members of the operation informed and up-to-date. The app is available to all workers on phones, tablets and desktop computers throughout the facility. All interactions are captured in a dashboard that provides real-time data and reports to company managers.
“The mobile solution has dramatically enhanced process efficiency by having it accessible on your phone and by automating many manual processes.”, said Dan Fowler. Dan has been recently promoted to Manufacturing Manager in Henderson Nevada.
Innovation is a core value of Weever Apps, a Mobile Workforce Management technology hailing from Hamilton, Ontario. “We work hard to foster a spirit of innovation in everything we do, including business solutions, product design and engineering,” said Andrew Holden, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Weever Apps. “ Today’s forward-thinking companies are embracing the digital transformation of the workplace and the associated productivity benefits of “going paperless”. Our responsibility is to provide those leaders with the most effective products possible – which is why our team culture is focused on creativity and results. We’re proud to work with company leaders like Dan, who also demonstrate those values.”
Innovation is not just part of Weever Apps’ internal culture, it is a lens through which they evaluate new projects, customers and partnerships.
