Most business IT solutions are aimed at professions that use a computer or mobile phone in their work. In companies, especially in the field of production, logistics, retail or healthcare, most employees need both hands during their work, and therefore the use of a computer or smartphone for business purposes is not possible for all of them.

The use of Smartwatches, which provide sufficient performance for running a business application that is connected to the company’s information system, appears to be a suitable alternative. In addition, thanks to the vibrations on the wrist, they can get the employee’s attention even in busy and noisy work environments. The NIVY Watch system is a sophisticated business solution designed for task management of indoor workers. The system enables the planning of regular and irregular tasks for all employees of the operation. Smartwatches provide reminders of tasks according to the scheduled time, or the department where the employee is located within the scope of operations. It is also possible for the employee to add ad hoc activities directly on the watch.

Example: Daily tasks of a Fruit & Vegetable department retail worker
6:00 Unloading of goods, quality control
7:00 Department sanitation
9:00 Quality control, Removal and disposal of spoiled goods
10:00 Replenishment of goods
11:00 Quality control, Removal and disposal of spoiled goods
12:00 Department sanitation
13:00 Quality control, Removal and disposal of spoiled goods
14:00 Replenishment of goods
15:00 Quality control, Removal and disposal of spoiled goods
16:00 Revaluation of Fresh Items
17:00 Quality control, Removal and disposal of spoiled goods
18:00 Storage of goods

Part of the solution is also a set of cloud tools intended for the operations manager, thanks to which he or she has a complete and continuous overview of all performed/unperformed tasks during the day, and form the basis of complex analysis over a longer period.

Thanks to the easily implementable indoor positioning system, the manager gains a new useful context that enables him or her to assign tasks to specific departments. Smartwatches are able to remind the employee of uncompleted tasks whenever they enter a predefined department, which can significantly increase their productivity and simplify their work load, which is often physically demanding.

Another useful functionality are NIVY Messages, which the manager can use to guide employees in situations where an ad hoc response is needed. Alternatively, the employee can request assistance from the manager or another colleague with a predefined short message.

Thanks to these unique features, the manager has an exceptional tool providing better organization of work processes during the work shift. Thanks to the complex analysis of data, managers and companies’ executives can easily identify the best performing workers and can then be used in their performance evaluations. Furthermore, it can be used to improve inefficient processes.

It means that staff are given more responsibility for completing their tasks, can be adequately rewarded when they are completed efficiently, and it enables managers to make data-driven decisions on process improvement.

Thanks to NIVY’s advanced analysis of tasks, you can ensure your business completes its tasks on time and to your requirements, with the onus being placed on the employee.

The goal of the NIVY Watch solution is to achieve better results from the point of view of fulfilling the prescribed tasks of individuals as well as the entire operation, resulting in an increase in productivity and an improvement in the company’s economic results.
