Whyte and Mackay – Distributor Stockholding Solution

Market leader in the global spirits business Whyte and Mackay, wanted to fully digitise their processes. Each department used a mix of digital and paper records as well as a mix of communication methods. This meant that information could easily be lost, misplaced, processes were more difficult to learn, and analysing records was extremely time consuming. Bridgeall helped the team to create a Power Apps maturation and warehousing solution by combining their network of departments into a unified powerhouse.

Natural Power – A Bat Smart Curtailment System (BSCS)

NP, a leading independent renewable energy consultancy operating globally, required a system for the curtailment of wind turbines when a high risk of bat fatality is present on windfarms. In the US, the current blanket curtailment approach in response to high wind speed minimises bat fatalities (an endangered mammal) but at a significant economic cost to operators even when there are no bats in the area. Estimates suggest that 25% to 75% of curtailment hours may be unnecessary.

Working closely with NP and Elekon AG (a Swiss-based supplier of Batlogger equipment for recording and analysing the location of bats), Bridgeall custom developed the software underpinning a Bat Smart Curtailment System to minimise these economic costs. The system removes the need for blanket curtailment by monitoring bat activity in real-time, curtailing turbines only when relative risk value has reached a certain level.

Heineken – Streamlining Business Processes

Following a strategic decision to re-develop and standardise on Microsoft technologies, Bridgeall was selected from a competitive tender as one of Heineken UK’s SharePoint .NET and core ASP.NET preferred development partners based on our deep .NET experience, SharePoint know-how, agile development approach and rigorous software engineering discipline.

With the aim of delivering immediate improvements in business processes, the first project was to transition an Out of Hours Support Manager application from a variety of disparate departmental solutions, both Lotus Notes applications and spreadsheets, into a single application that streamlined the process for the business. This initial application would lay much of the framework for standardising subsequent applications. To ensure seamless integration, Bridgeall took a wider and longer-term view, developing a set of re-usable components and design elements that could be easily incorporated across the full programme.
