The two areas that have worked well for my team are the online purchasing module that enables quicker and seamless ordering of important equipment and services and allows the teams to be more agile. The other key area is the chief warden scheduling. For the guest experience and switch team it is of huge value to know who the chief warden on their phones is. It enables communications to be directed quickly and efficiently to the right person and it means when codes are called the ability to identify the chief warden is very fast. This has replaced the inefficient process opening of drives on a desktop computer finding spreadsheets of rosters etc. This ability builds confidence in the front-line teams.
