Information is centralized and easily searchable
As described, the dashboard brings together planning details with machine status information and relevant documentation. Employees thus no longer need to search through e-mailboxes, network drives, SharePoint and even paper to get the information required to do their daily job. The Power App brings all this information together in an intuitive way.
Integration with other systems
The functional power of the solution lies in the fact that everything is nicely integrated with existing tools and systems such as planning, the management of documents, or the integration of the live status of the electrolyzer machines (on-off state).
80% reduction in email exchanges
This eliminates the need to send emails (up to 80% reduction!), avoids inefficient searches, and makes it possible to proactively offer the latest relevant safety information to everyone involved in the production process.
Successful user adoption
Vynova ELY Communication App was easily adopted by employees as it was completely in line with their needs. The integrated analytics show that the application is actively being used: it’s consulted by all users within the ELY department several times a day. From an IT portfolio perspective, since SharePoint is used in combination with the Power App, this also helps towards user adoption of SharePoint and the surrounding Microsoft tools within Vynova.
Development and launch in record time
In addition, the relatively short implementation cycle and related limited budget needs were obviously an additional benefit: analysis, design, implementation and roll-out were all covered in less than 50 mandays of work.
Technically, the fact that the Power Platform offers the possibility to build a custom application that is easy to maintain and expand is a great added value. So-called ‘spaghetti’ code (extremely unstructured and non-maintainable code) is thus avoided. At Vynova, the ELY Communication App has once again improved the belief that the Power Platform provides an amazing tool to digitize and really impact the daily work of employees.
