Their Pain

RPC bpi group has a diverse workforce with sites around the world. Therefore, it was difficult to engage and communicate with all staff members, from warehouse to office staff.

They wanted to implement a centralised communication tool that would inform and engage their global workforce to improve productivity.

This solution needed to encourage and facilitate two-way communication as well as act as a central location for corporate news, resources and information.

The ultimate goal was to make all employees feel they were a valuable and important part of a growing and successful organisation.

Our Solution

We developed Crest, an intranet web application and mobile (Android & iOS) platform to deliver a customised employee engagement tool for RPC bpi group.

The core functionality has been built as modules, allowing users to switch on different functions in the back office.

To centralise key business information, the platform integrates with in-house payroll and financial systems as well as third party applications, including Google Cloud API for dynamic translation, social media platforms and RSS feeds.

The application is hosted on our secure infrastructure and supported under Blue Wren’s comprehensive service level agreement.
