What do you hope the audience will learn from this webinar?
I know our community love to hear real world examples of how organizations are automating processes and accelerating digital transformation. I’m hoping our audience will enjoy hearing from our customer James Morgan, IT Manager of the A14 Integrated Delivery Team (a £1.5bn joint venture between Costain, Skanska and Balfour Beatty), he has great practical examples of what digital transformation really means – on the ground, here-and-now, in the cut-and-thrust of busy working days.
The theme of this webinar will be dominated by Automation, Visibility & Mobility, primarily discussing how the A14 brought complicated paper-based processes such as permission to dig, site visit request forms and labor requests online. This was achieved by implementing a no code Process Automation technology platform, into what is one of the largest road construction projects running in the UK.
The key learning objectives of this webinar are:
- Learn why the time is right for process change
- Learn how the A14 Joint Venture is automating large amounts of document generation, while centralizing and standardizing data across projects
- Discover how the A14 joint venture rapidly deployed multiple processes, and increased efficiency and governance with a full audit trail
- Hear how the intuitiveness and rich features of FlowForma’s no code process automation tool, make it very adaptable and easy for everyone to use
If you’re looking to utilize the power of a process automation tool, this webinar is perfect for you.
What discussions do you look forward to having with the audience?
James and I are looking forward to discussing common challenges that the energy and engineering sector are facing such as manual processes, excessive paperwork, logistical challenges etc. I’m excited for James to share how he overcame these pain points and more by automating processes with the no code FlowForma Process Automation tool for Office 365. James is keen to show attendees how they automated processes such as permission to dig and targeted risk monitoring. I’ll also give attendees a short demo of the FlowForma Process Automation tool. We’d love to make the webinar as interactive as possible, so please send us any questions you have for us to [email protected] or just raise your hand during the webinar.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
I enjoy working with customers and prospects, understanding their challenges and finding ways that FlowForma Process Automation can improve their situation. I love helping organizations transform their ways of working and increase productivity through innovation.
How did you get into the industry?
I was interested in computing since childhood and my childhood hobby turned into a career! I joined the founding team at FlowForma after spending many years delivering bespoke data and workflow solutions in large organizations. I knew the pain of traditional software delivery methods and wanted to promote a new no code approach to empower business managers – now I get to help people.
Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
I have visited and worked in many places around the world, I’m always keen to experience new cultures. My favourite place is my homeland of Ireland, our people have a lot to offer and it’s so accessible! I’m lucky that I get to travel a lot in my role, visiting prospects and customers across the US, UK and Europe.
