Aggreko Digital Partnership

A partnership for wide ranging digital transformation with the world's leading temporary power supplier

Background & Objectives

Aggreko are the world’s leading provider of temporary power generation; offering temporary power, heating, and cooling solutions in over 100 countries worldwide. They are currently undergoing an enterprise-wide digital transformation programme aimed at improving both their employee and customer digital experiences.

Aggreko first commissioned Screenmedia in 2016 at the beginning of their digital transformation journey. Since then our relationship has grown into a close partnership and we have supported Aggreko with UX, design, front end, and Xamarin development expertise throughout the delivery of multiple core projects.

Xamarin Consultancy

Supporting Aggreko's Xamarin Journey

Our Mobile Director Gordon has worked with Aggreko to bring Screenmedia’s extensive experience as one of the UK’s first Xamarin Premier Consulting partners to their internal team. Working closely with their team, Gordon is helping Aggreko develop a mobile centre of excellence through building knowledge and offering guidance on the planning and development of apps for both internal and customer use.

Health and Safety App

Keeping Workers Safe

With health and safety being so vital in Aggreko’s line of work, we were approached to design an app that would build a safer working environment and streamline the reporting, processing, and redistribution of risks.

We worked with Aggreko to understand the requirements of the app, then translated these into user flows and wireframes. We then elevated these wireframes into a beautiful user interface design, rich in Aggreko branding, and to a standard expected of the best consumer apps. Following this we handed the designs to Aggreko’s inhouse Xamarin mobile developers to bring the app to life.

Our solution is now used company-wide and allows Aggreko employees to report risks from any location to head office, lowers injury rates, and reduces unsafe working conditions.

Remote Operations Centre Dashboard

Smart Analytics and the Internet of Things

In recent years Aggreko has moved from reactive maintenance to a more proactive model supported by predictive analytics and IoT sensors, but the functional dashboard interface created by the inhouse team lacked the usability and enterprise branding sought by Aggreko.

We supplied Aggreko with the stylesheets, tools and assets to allow their development team to choose from a suite of specially designed components with which to build a custom UI.

Data Visualisation

Broadening Access to Revolutionary Business Data

Aggreko wanted to create a portal to widen access to their data science work, complete with rich insights and engaging visualisations, to broaden the understanding of their work and enable non-technical staff to understand the data presented.

Our role was to undertake the user experience planning, visual design, and front end development of the new portal. Using D3 data visualisation software we developed dynamic, interactive visualisations, crafted to ensure maximum clarity of the data displayed.

The new data visualisations set Aggreko well on their way to making their transformative analytics data accessible to a wider audience within the company, broadening the understanding of their products and their customers’ needs, and ultimately raising customer satisfaction.

Technician App

Streaming Field Operations

Aggreko’s field engineers maintain a huge global inventory of equipment, and were using a variety of manuals, stock management apps, and checklists in their daily work. Through a thorough audit of existing workflows and user behaviours, we developed a solution which combined all of their assets into a single app. The app integrated with Aggreko’s existing business services and was built using a modular plugin architecture, and an interface design which follows best practice principles of UX and UI design.

Our Technician App was well received by Aggreko, with zero medium or high priority issues reported in UAT acceptance, and 5,475 Aggreko technicians now using our solution.

Business Intelligence Portal

Improving business insight through design

Aggreko’s existing internal business intelligence site was rarely used due to the complex interface and length of time it took to navigate and generate reports. We worked with the Business Intelligence and technical teams at Aggreko to inject our user experience and graphic design expertise to the site, crafting new and improved user journeys and navigation to get users to the data they needed.

Our solution is both visually appealing, highly functional, and brings the Aggreko brand to life. Our clients were delighted with our designs and are now working to implement them into their internal systems.

Results

Our relationship with Aggreko has grown from a single project to encompass a close partnership for planning, design, and technical innovation. We are very proud to be supporting a global leader in their digital transformation journey, and continue to work with Aggreko to this day.

10 projects completed
Working with Screenmedia has been instrumental to our success. Not only have they met tight deadlines with well architected, extremely robust solutions but their steering on the user experience and interface design of our mobile apps has resulted in very positive feedback from our stakeholders and users across the globe. We could not be happier with the service provided.
