1. THE BEGINNING
This innovation initially came to life when…
After working over 36 years within the industry, I thought – there has to be a better way to do this!
So, I set out designing, gathering industry knowledge and government advice, pushing the boundaries of the old establishment and getting them to accept a new way of thinking.
I then was selected as the winner of the #smallbusinesschallenge sponsored by BlueChilli, CCIQ, Suncorp and Microsoft. Since then we have released the initial residential beta app onto the market and are in design for our commercial AS3000 compliant app that will blow the socks off the industry.
2. WHAT & HOW
The purpose of this innovation is to…
solve compliance issues, reduce risk and ensure safety.
We provide 360 degree visibility to all entities, reduce public liability and exposure to the electricians/industry and provide real-time safety alerts to reduce personal injuries/death and financial industry loss.
It does this by…
…using native (online/offline) apps to allow the electricians to easily comply with federal regulations quickly and easily by providing all parties secure storage and instant access for the required 5-year period.
The AS3000 compliant app tests the results to ensure that the test results are within the AS3000 parameters.
Safety Alerts directly to the electricians warn of impending danger or recalls.
3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS
This innovation improves on what came before because…
… of 360 degree transparency between the electrician, electrical business, Construction/Mining companies and the state regulators. Secure data with one window for all to see.
Offline/online native capability on mobile devices, ensuring no matter where you work, your app will work.
We get safety updates directly to the electricians on the ground in real time. This has never been done before!
Its various benefits to the customer/end-user include…
…reduction of liability from the regulators ($8000 per Cert)
100% compliance of AS3000 certs due to internal checks and measures.
Secure storage/access for the required 5-year period.
Access by all entities at any time and in real time.
4. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
In the past, this problem was solved by…
5 out of 8 Australian states are still using paper, as is much of the world! 3 state regulators have a digital solution, only one with a mobile solution – and then – it is not available offline.
Rules and regulations were established, but there were no mechanisms to ensure that compliance is being completed.
Its predecessors/competitors include…
Aroflow, simPRO and Tradify have a partial Certificate solution, some have mobile capabilities. These are all total management solutions and very complex. None of these allow access by the electrician, construction/Mining or state regulators. None are AS3000 compliant.
5. TARGET MARKET
It is made for…
- Electricians – To easily complete and lodge Certificates. To have access to every cert they have ever completed in the past 5 years to reduce their liability.
- Electrical Businesses – To pre-fill the certificate with customers information, have real-time access to completed certificates and secure storage for the required 5-year period – reducing their liability.
- Construction/Mining Companies – To have real-time access to completed certs and secure storage for the required 5-year period – reducing their liability.
- Government Regulators – Access to any certificate to ensure compliance is being carried out.
94,519 Construction Projects
It is available for sale through…
…QLD residential beta app is available now on the Apple Store
Android version available Aug 2017 on Google Play
AS3000 version available Aug 2017 on both Apple Store and Google Play
Our marketing strategy is to…
…engage the large construction companies to then mandate it for use on all their sites as we have started with ProBuild, UGL and BGC. This will create large adapters early.
Promote through our B2B strategic partnerships with NECA (67% of the entire Qld electrical database) and CCIQ (400,000 business database).
Direct promotion from trade shows and event for general awareness.
