A programme running parallel to Thames Water’s Smarter Home Visit, the Smarter Business Visit is helping businesses to save water and energy. An average business could save an estimated £800 on their annual running costs and reduce water consumption by 1000 litres per day, the aim of the SBV is to help make this happen. Businesses and other institutions such as schools can book a visit with a plumber who can fix leaks, convert toilets and install water-saving devices.
This programme is managed using an app developed by Groundwork utilising the Zoho Creator platform. GDS have developed an end-to-end system which allows the plumbers and operations managers to contact and log this contact with businesses, book visits using an integrated booking calendar, record their visit data via mobile devices and view all of this data in charts and tables on a dashboard.
