In 2014 The Technology Strategy Board (innovate UK) decided to invest in collaborative R&D projects to help businesses establish secure, resilient and reliable connections with staff who need to work remotely.

Tracline UK was awarded part of these funds to lead a project aimed at making remote working easier and more cost effective.

A number of commonly occurring mobile technology issues were identified, for which Tracline had developed practical solutions, providing the scope for significant business benefit. This solution is called STATUS.

Created in co-operation with NHS community practitioners and national UK based Charities, STATUS provides the ability to increase patient engagement, give clinicians better access to information, improve personal interactions with clients and patients and reduces the overall cost of managing the mobile estate.

The data from STATUS is fed into a cloud based service called VISION which provides important metrics on users, usage, applications accessed, location and connectivity type.

This data has become important to organisations that need visibility into their mobile workforces so that business decisions can be made using the facts. These decisions include staffing, allocation of assets, such as mobile devices, training requirements and communications provider.

Now in use in a major UK Charity and being trialled by a number of NHS Trusts, they are already seeing the following benefits:

  • Less failures - gaining more productivity from the workforce
  • Increased take up on device usage - more work done in the field saving travel time and expense

Sue Connolly from Tracline (UK) Limited will be reviewing and discussing how this simple but effective solution has helped change the outlook of mobile working, improved the lives of children and given field clinicians more time to work with patients and communities.
