Resolution IT have created an app for the Guernsey Voluntary Services to assist in the administration and delivery of nearly 500 Meals on Wheels a week.
Dave Wratten, the Business Solutions Architect who developed the app, had aimed to reduce the burden of administrative work on the volunteers.
“The GVS team came to us to ask if we could build a replacement for their existing Meals on Wheels system which was proving time-consuming to manage,” said Mr Wratten. “I worked with them to update the data structure, building them a new app which is more flexible and user friendly,”
“I’m delighted to have been able to use my skills on such a worthwhile cause.”
Niki Martin, a Meals on Wheels Co-ordinator, was pleased with how much easier client info was to access and change.
“The new Power App which Dave has built for us has transferred our client setup from four different sections into one user friendly input screen,” said Martin. “It’s made the whole logistical process easier and quicker and cuts down any potential user errors.”
Ms Martin stressed that the scale of Meals on Wheels’ operation made a more streamlined administrative process necessary.
“We deliver 493 meals to 126 clients six days a week across four different daily island routes, based off a six-week rotational menu from the Hospital,” said Martin.
“That’s 23 delivery rounds a week, with two volunteers on each round.”
