Support Call App

To increase collaboration and operational felxibility, the WORKERBASE support call app allows adhoc creation of support calls. Workers on the shopfloor can initiate support calls at anytime by using the app on their smartwatch. The support requests will be routed to pre-defined users or user groups who will then provide assisstance. This may include technical support, medical help or any other assistance which is requested. All activities will be stored in the WORKEBASE workflow management system and can be analysed later on, e.g. it is possible to generate reports on how long reaction times in case of support requests really are. This increases transparency about shop floor operations.

How does the Support call app work?

The entire business logic oft he support call app can be configured to meet individual requirements. This includes the set up of value lists, help buttons and user groups how might be of assistance in case a help request is sent. A typical set up usually looks like this:



  1. A user triggers a support request by selecting his problem and required support from a value list.
  2. A task announcement is sent to a group of users (e.g. forklifter drivers or service technicians).
  3. Any user who is available may acknowledge the task and starts execution
  4. Task progress is reflected in the WORKERBASE system. Progress can be forwarded to the user as a system message, e.g. “Request accepted”.

The setup and customisation of the support call app is done in minutes, it’s only clicks in a web browser instead of writing software code.
