Tom is a IT manager for manufacturing company from city near CN Tower. Tom is one of my best customers who gave me product feedbacks and feature idea. Last week we have exchanged couple of emails and bounce off new ideas, he mentioned about a challenges he has. Frequently, he bring external subject experts to solve his challenges e.g. Exchange Server , fiber cabling or even manufacturing robots. Usually those jobs takes long time to finish and so he usually connect the visiting external subject expert to the owner of the project. But he needs to make sure whether the experts finished his work and signed out facility safely before he wrap up the day. As it is large facility, there are chance the external experts might be forgotten, lost the way or worst.
I was thinking about this problem to solve with SignIn+ app and I suggest adding e-escort between the visitor and hosting employee to solve his problem. But he pointed out that that approach may not work always and he wants to solve 99% of case while does not introduce new complexity. He needs a simple, robust and integrated solution with existing work environment.
