The Problem?

 

Orica has over 100 field workers and was looking for a way to improve field worker efficiency. Orica's field workers are required to fill out forms, submit claims, and act quickly in case of emergency. Orica had documents and reference materials that were only available by PDF or hard copy, so they were looking for a solution that could make the documents readily accessible by users on their phones without having to rely on internet connectivity.

The Solution

14 Oranges came in and developed a mobile app that allows users to access reference materials, procedures, and contact information without an internet connection.

14 Oranges converted Orica’s unique paper forms into a mobile format that works with smartphones and tablets. As Orica adds new forms, and require edits to forms, they will be able to access the backend and make changes without coming back to 14 Oranges.

In addition, the app has other forms and quick links to external resources, including a touch-to-dial or touch-to-email feature. Users can fill out forms remotely and choose to send them once they're back in a location with cell service or wifi.

In the case of an emergency, the app provides a step by step process for the field workers to follow. The app uses minimal battery usage, as all content is stored offline and requires no data or wifi connection to operate.
