Access to correct, accurate data is of vital importance in healthcare. That is why Tosoh Bioscience decided to optimize its support and services processes, providing its field engineers with ready, mobile, real-time access to data. The result? Customer services have improved significantly. Field engineers work more efficiently. And Tosoh itself has a much clearer overview of all the running projects.
Tosoh Bioscience, part of the Japanese Tosoh Corporate, distributes and maintains products and solutions for diagnostics in clinical laboratories, such as blood and urine analyzers. The company is a global leader in analyzers to monitor the treatment of diabetes patients. While technology – and sciences – are key at Tosoh Bioscience’s European headquarters in Tessenderlo, outstanding services and support are just as important.
If Tosoh customers – generally laboratories – have an issue with a Tosoh product, they want it to be solved as quickly as possible. Tosoh has a dedicated team of Field Service Engineers (FSEs), who are tasked with troubleshooting, repairing and maintaining the devices. When at the customer’s site, however, the technicians had difficulty accessing information on the installation.
Tosoh teamed up with Flexso Digital to review the existing .NET application. Together with an in-house team, we analyzed the processes, mapping every single step in the flow. Based on these insights, we outlined a new solution. Focal points of the new platform included stability, data, traceability and the possibility to access all the data both off- and online, at any moment.
Together with Qframe, a subsidiary of Cronos, we enhanced the existing .NET application and revised the offline synchronization with the backend. An international group of Tosoh employees, all with different roles in IT and business, extensively tested the pilot. The result was a reliable, innovative, user-friendly app that met the needs of everyone involved.
Benefits for the engineer, the system administrator and the customer
As the initial sync involved an enormous amount of data, we opted for a step-by-step go-live, with 60 Field Service Engineers. Thanks to the planned hyper care services, we were able to tackle child’s diseases as soon as these cropped up.
Today, all Tosoh’s Field Services Engineers enjoy working with the reliable, new mobile app, day in, day out.
