MOVING towards digitalisation, waste management company Alam Flora Sdn Bhd has collaborated with Samsung to create the brand’s latest business smartphone, XCover4, which is set to improve communication and public feedback.
Specifically created for Alam Flora’s business clients, the product is expected to enhance its Integrated Management System mobile application platform, known as “MResponz”, thus contributing to greater efficiency and effectiveness.
“The new platform is versatile, mobile centric and has rapid programming, providing features such as contractor modules, security upgrade and other enhancements for faster performance and lower power consumption,” said Alam Flora chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Zain Hassan.
With the technology created through the XCover4, Alam Flora staff will be able to conduct their daily tasks with greater ease.
“The phone provides them with specific applications needed to fulfil daily tasks.
“Daily reports can be easily submitted using the smartphone without the hassle of returning to the office.
“With the current system, the person-in-charge (PIC) can also access the information within seconds,” Mohd Zain said at a ceremony to hand over the new device at Icon Tower, Kuala Lumpur.
XCover4 is designed with a Geo-Fence software that enables the PIC to keep track of the whereabouts of staff members, who will be able to clock in using their smartphones.
“Each ground supervisor will have their own district to monitor; and with the Geo-Fence software, we can supervise their whereabouts and determine if they are working the required hours,” he said, adding that the software upgrade would also enable Alam Flora workers to respond to public complaints in real time.
“With current technology, we will not only be able to overcome various challenges, but also come up with new and futuristic features to benefit Alam Flora in the long run,” Mohd Zain said.
Samsung Malaysia Electronics Sdn Bhd enterprise business telco sales head Eric Kwai Chee Hoong said: “This partnership with Alam Flora is the first of its kind and we look forward to creating more meaningful collaborations in the future with other potential partners looking to drive digital transformation of their enterprise.”
In the first batch, Alam Flora will purchase 175 units of the XCover4 smartphone for its ground supervisors and excos.
