Implementation

Spellsystems implemented two-tier solution of two main components:

  1. Server-side software, including web-service for mobile application interaction and intranet-portal for reporting.
  2. Android mobile application for duty managers.

Server-side software contains of two parts: web-service, intranet-portal. Web-service implements the business-logic for procedures of daily monitoring and control; it also gathers all necessary information for the reporting. Mobile application uses web-service as an interface of database interaction. Intranet-portal implements the functionality of systems management, including the role management, the account management, the checkpoints and the reports management. In addition, web-portal hosts all the reporting features, providing regular report generation.

Mobile application implements three main functions: duty manager tracking, issues registration and issues solving control. Every duty manager comes from checkpoint to checkpoint and registers the checkpoint state. If he founds any problem, he makes photos, describes the problem and registers it. After that, systems sends the problem information to the management and to the services according to a kind of the problem.

During next revision duty manager checks if the problem solved or not.

As a result, intranet-portal reporting system always shows the list of the opened, closed and overdue problems.
