What is the Digital Field Worker Initiative?
Finished in a Jiffy
How did Software Innovation’s Mobility team come on board with working on the app you ask? It was through a digitalization meeting hosted by Johan Sverdrup (JS).
“We were invited to share what app solutions we had created previously, as they’re always eager to look at new digital solutions. Originally, an app like Work Permit had been requested by Aasta Hansteen and we quickly saw that it would be useful for JS as well,” Jaatun says.
So what else to do than get to work? With a solid platform to run it all on, the team didn’t spend more than a month to get it done. The first minimum viable product (MVP) was released and put into use on July 3.
“This might be our fastest delivered app since we’ve started. Since it’s an app made for working in the field and not in an office it’s an interesting task,” he explains.
There are different levels to the work permits that the app can handle and for the first edition only level 2 permits are included.
