Insight into user data with a custom application

Meet Flamingo – a custom app developed specifically for Imbema to make analyzing hoses and their usage much easier. Principally, each hose was equipped with an individual NFC chip, providing them with unique IDs. By scanning these chips through the Flamingo app, all relevant data concerning the specific hose can be collected in an instant.

Automated processes

In the (petrochemical) industry, the use of hoses is essential, as they’re used to transport both hazardous substances and food. Any mistake could lead to serious consequences and damage, therefore, using the proper hose and making sure it is in good condition is of the utmost importance. Company representatives check each hose and administer them manually. Since it is often difficult to identify and distinguish the hoses, this turns out to be a very time-consuming, complicated and expensive process.

The Flamingo app, developed by Macaw, automates this whole process.

Data collection

Identifying a hose could be very difficult for a variety of reasons, including lack of proper markings, damaged markings (labels, barcodes, metal tags) or the absence of broad daylight. Therefore, the hoses were equipped with NFC chips, which are scanned through the app. This provides company representatives with immediate systematic information on the type of hose, its lifespan, application, maintenance interval and necessary certifications.

All data is stored in the cloud, making it easily accessible to both employees and representatives as well as external auditors. In addition, the Flamingo app saves time, boosts security, uptime, quality and document management.

With this project, Macaw was nominated for the 17th Channel Awards and awarded Best Channel Project of the Year.
