Iconnet was tasked with developing two applications - firstly, a bespoke Visitor Management System (VMS) - an application that monitors the activity of VIP guests, suppliers and visitors on-site at the Unilever factory in Gloucester. In addition, manage visitor health and safety on-site by way of video, question/answer engagement.

Alongside this, we developed a native Android app utilising Samsung tablets to control room booking utilisation throughout the site, this was also integrated within the VMS. A separate administrative monitoring application was developed to identify any downtime to the tablets/application.

Secondly, we developed a Stores Booking Management System (SBMS) - a web-based application with three elements - Firstly, to accept 'part' orders received at the factory, secondly, to locate a 'part' item within the expansive internal stores racking facility within two minutes - we created a virtual racking system that highlighted the location of the item on screen for easy identification. The third element was to output directly to SAP (third party software).
