Rassaun Services is a business specialising in custom fabrication, mechanical and electrical services in Ontario, Canada. The majority of their workforce is based at client facilities making tasks like data collection a challenge for critical business processes such as payroll, inspections, and billing.
Braedon was assigned the task to find a solution in which their data captured in the field could be shared with office-based employees rapidly and reliably
The Evaluation Process
Braedon said that the key factor when sourcing a solution such as this was: ‘The Trial’.
Although he does see merit in the likes of white papers and demonstrations, to truly experience the capabilities of the software, he feels a physical trial of the product is non-negotiable. Additionally, he found it much easier to get the relevant decision-makers on board once he had created a proof of concept applicable to their business case.
Braedon believes that Appenate outshone its competitors with features such as our diverse range of Connectors, being able to ‘Sync’ between the platform and a local MS SQL Server database, and our Web Platform Interface.
