The Dow Chemical Company is an American multinational chemical corporation headquartered in Midland, Michigan and operates in 180 countries. It is a leader in specialty chemicals delivering products and solutions to markets such as electronics, water and energy. Dow's principal lines of business include Agricultural Sciences, Consumer Solutions, Infrastructure Solutions, Performance Materials & Chemicals, and Performance Plastics.

Challenge

All of Dow’s employees and contractors had to constantly refer to large physical rule books or their computers to get any information regarding the EH&S norms at the firm.

Dow wanted us to develop a means to translate all EH&S related documents into a mobile app so users have access to these on the go. Along with that, we were supposed to build a database of all the users of the app and track their usage. The company had no automated means of getting feedback of the working tools and policies from its workforce, so an interface to enable Dow to get this feedback to ensure their safety was also to be included in this mobile app.

The main challenge here was the extremely short deadline to finish the project. The application had to go live very soon as announcements of the release had already been made.

The Solution

Resourcifi identified the problem and took it as a challenge to deliver the Phase 1 within the timeline.

We put along a hybrid team of on-site and off-site, highly skilled Android & iOS developers for this project. This hybrid team of developers built a custom application so Dow could track usage statistics of all its users and get the required feedback.

Resourcifi also developed a custom mobile app for the client to allow easy access to EH&S related data in a user-friendly way to all its employees

Conclusion

Resourcifi utilized its extensive resource management expertise to deliver the project within the stipulated time.

Post launch in January 2016, we worked on providing additional support for the app and training to Dow’s employees to manage the app on their own.

The client was able to meet the deadline and at the same time was able to save significant costs in both development and deployment of the platform.
