Average time saving of 35% for the company’s customers

InfoHand is a company specializing in Google Cloud’s AppSheet platform. The company leverages its five years of experience with the platform to build customized apps for each type of business, train professionals, and show them the alternatives this solution offers.

The company realizes that some of the main challenges organizations currently face concern complete digitalization of information. By getting rid of market software that cannot provide the flexibility they expect, companies can forge ahead using custom integrated apps, via mobile devices or the web, even if they do not have an IT department for that purpose. Consequently, the keyword is accessibility.

AppSheet enables every professional in an organization to create and extend apps without programming. This makes it more feasible to automate internal processes, approve requests, manage activities, and other tasks. By having apps available for use on computers, smartphones, and tablets, operational teams can remain readily connected.

InfoHand uses AppSheet to seek innovation and for internal operations. While servicing a customer, the company started to understand how data collection and the way the compiled information is stored and interpreted help provide comprehensive management.

Internal changes that impact businesses

By implementing the app culture for its customers, InfoHand ends up driving structural changes in company routines. For this reason, it also uses AppSheet’s features in its own departments. The implementation process lasted about two months and brought the benefits of automation to all of InfoHand’s divisions.

“InfoHand was born out of a customer’s experience with AppSheet. We now use the tool in-house. We have several successful use cases, such as a company that reduced its back office by 50% and thus obtained substantial cost savings.”

Currently, every department at InfoHand has its own custom app, from HR and operations to procurement, CRM and stock—turning integration into reality.

“Every sector is interconnected. We have the HR module, the financial module, and others. AppSheet generates a workflow, so if the commercial department team has a project, it goes through development and is then sent to a production chain, and everything is done using AppSheet.”

Even final contracts, which include digital signatures and electronic billing, are enabled by an app. The company has partnered with the State Finance Department (SEFAZ) to cooperate in this kind of work.

Results that reflect automation

Advantages from AppSheet’s use include getting information in real time and the ability to access data in a mobile format, but there are also examples from InfoHand’s customers. In a general survey, they estimated they achieved around 35% in time savings, proof of the tool’s effectiveness.

“One of our customers, a company that produces inventories of trees for municipal agencies, told us that in the past, it managed to compile information on about 90 trees per week. Now, it does that in just a day,” adds Secarechio.

Agility to work and the ability to interpret and analyze data are among other positive impacts AppSheet brings. A highlight is management, resulting in indicators that can provide complementary data.

“AppSheet’s greatest advantage is mobility, as I can obtain the information anywhere, either offline or online. And having that information on your cell phone, i.e., being able to use the platform there, makes a huge difference.”

Regarding future projects, the company says it is planning to migrate its entire database to Google Cloud and encourage its customers to do the same.

Thus, by connecting information and using, for example, Looker, any company member can quickly analyze and find insights on a dataset. The company also plans to integrate APIs to obtain even more benefits.
