Mourik achieves significant savings thanks to the time registration app.
Because the ERP system lacked the necessary flexibility to automate the process from planning to time registration, Mourik went looking for a flexible layer around the ERP system. Jaap van der Welle, Corporate IT Manager at Mourik, explains: “Our main objective was to achieve efficient time registration. We come from a situation where people on the construction site fill in a timesheet. This note then went to the foreman, administration, and accountant, after which it was entered into our ERP system, had to be checked and paid. The chance of errors was, therefore, very high. It is a slow process, and checking the hours is almost impossible. Moreover, there was an insufficient link with the planning. To automate this entire process, we entered into talks with Mendix. We were immediately enthusiastic and started the project with Mendix specialist FlowFabric. ”
In the conversations with FlowFabric, there immediately appeared to be a lot of confidence. Van der Welle: “We had mapped out several requirements in advance about the product and the partner. For example, we did not want a niche product and, with a view to collaborations, we looked at the solutions used in the market, for example. Also, security had to be properly secured, there was a flexible platform, and we especially did not want to set up a heavy software development department ourselves. That is how we ended up with a low-code platform Mendix, with which we can work web-based. We also immediately had a good click with FlowFabric. It was our first time working with Mendix and in sprints, so we needed a specialist. Together we started developing the Mura app: the Mourik time registration app. ”
