James Smith, Associate Director, Centre of Excellence, Emrill explains how the company developed and introduced an app called Effy (Efficiency Enhancement App) to address property services.
The app is used by all staff to manage required work on properties and to track progress made. Since its introduction, Emrill has realised savings of 20%, by identifying waste and areas where productiveness could be improved.
“It’s an investment in technology, but it’s an investment that will save us a huge amount of money going forwards,” he said.
