Creating a complex solution for training Imperial Tobacco field staff

EastBanc Technologies is developing a solution for training and evaluation of field employees' skills for the international tobacco company Imperial Tobacco. The complex solution consists of a web-portal and an iPad app. It is intended to support training and professional development of field staff, as well as for certification, audit, and evaluation of staff competencies. In addition, the solution can quickly collect additional information for the needs of marketing, logistics, product and HR departments of the company. The portal will allow supervisors and their managers to plan activities for a week efficiently, schedule employee guidance in sales outlets for training, certification, and audits. As a result, the managers will receive detailed reports in a convenient medium to analyze dynamics of staff development. Also, the portal will enable creating and distributing surveys, and editing questionnaires for guidance, certification and audits. The mobile app will help a supervisor to conduct merchandiser training while guiding them on their territory to develop core competencies and follow the company standards, and in the future — to evaluate the development dynamics through certification, and to audit outlets for general assessment of the employee's performance results. In the course of work, a supervisor uses formalized questionnaires and relies on data about the employees' strengths and weaknesses, and the development goals previously set. The questionnaire can be supplied with photos and comments, which will help to give more consistent feedback on the performance quality and the competence level. To ensure a continuous learning process, the supervisor sets new goals after each guidance; evaluates strengths and weaknesses of the merchandiser. Later on, during the next training the supervisor will focus on these tasks. This enables consistent development of the merchandiser's professional competence, and continuous monitoring their adherence to the company standards. So, the complex solution provides systematic and continuous training of field staff, and monitoring compliance with the standards. It will allow to see the overall picture of the field staff performance indicators, and to collect important data about the market and the competitors' activities.

Mobile Register shrinks S7 Airlines airport queues

The passenger mobile registration kit has successfully passed testing, and works now in the check-in area of S7 Airlines flights in the airline's main airports, including Domodedovo. It helps to reduce queues to check-in swiftly and flexibly. Since October 2017, when the service testing began, more than 10 thousand passengers have enjoyed its convenience. The Mobile Register solution was developed by EastBanc Technologies specially for S7 Airlines. The kit consists of a smartphone with the mobile app, a fiscal printer, and a card reader. The mobile kit enables an employee to register passengers for a flight and to issue additional services: luggage, seat upgrade, upgrade to the business class. The mobile app recognizes tickets via QR codes, and interacts with the Departure Control System; it's integrated with a fiscal printer and a card reader for cashless payments. Boarding coupons and checks are printed with the fiscal printer. The full registration procedure including the additional sale processing takes no more than 1.5 minutes. It all happens in the passenger registration area with no necessity to be in the stationary sales office. So, if a passenger travels with no luggage, they can quickly register for the flight, pay for the services required, for instance, upgrade the on-board service class, and get the boarding pass, saving the time which would be otherwise spent in the queue to the check-in desk. In the meanwhile, passengers who have checked-in for the flight online, don't have to worry about printing out the boarding pass by themselves. The solution suits large airports with irregular check-in service load as well as smaller ones, where the airline has a very limited number of check-in desks, and the cashier to pay for the services can be located far from the registration area. "The results of the first months of additional employees' work at airports let us speak about high efficiency of the solution. Thanks to it, we've managed to increase the speed of flight check-in significantly, which, of course, leads to positive feedback from passengers. Every day only at Moscow Domodedovo airport, an average of 250 passengers use this unique service," said Svetlana Kulyukina, director of the S7 Group passenger experience department. In different periods, Mobile Register has been used at airports of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Ekaterinburg, Chelyabinsk, and Irkutsk.

Solution developed for EFKO merchandisers and supervisors

EastBanc Technologies has developed a solution for EFKO company group brand product distribution quality control. The solution based on the portal and a mobile app will assist merchandisers and supervisors in the shelf share assessment, checking SKU and POSM presence, and working with the product layout. EFKO is Russia's biggest producer of process-specialized fats used in the confectionery, bakery, and other food industries. It's known for brands of mayonnaise, vegetable oil, and ketchups Sloboda and Altero. The mobile app downloads a route with a list of shops, each of them supplied with information on the categories and brands distributed, SKU events, and conditions of the product layout. Merchandisers and supervisors guided by a step-by-step instruction fulfill their assignment in the shop, and record each indicator result, confirming it with a photo-report. In case of defects, absence of POSM or other failures, the employee can create an incident via the app, and receive a prompt feedback. The portal enables managing quality distribution indicators, creating routes for visiting considering the shop's format and location, merchandisers' workload, and other performance targets. Managers have received a tool for prompt situation monitoring, overseeing and evaluating merchandisers' and other services' performance. They receive operational data about issues in logistics, marketing event course, and contract term execution. Now the solution is under a pilot trial in Voronezh where the company HQ is located. By the end of the year, we are going to have launched the mobile app in Moscow and other regions of Russia.
