Project details

Client: Spirax Sarco
Industry: Engineering / Manufacturing
Project type: Mobile app / internal use
Project duration: 6 months

The challenge

Spirax Sarco needed a technology solution to replace an outdated process. Engineers in the field were previously required to use a large paper-based document, on a daily basis, to calculate pipe sizes required, based on the amount of steam needed to pass through.

This was a hugely inefficient, inconvenient process, wasting time and money. Spirax Sarco needed a technology solution to replace this method and streamline the calculation process.

The solution

Salpo developers worked closely to understand Spirax Sarco’s unique technical requirements, then designed a mobile app to meet those needs. The app was built in Android SDK with a MySQL database backend.

It allows engineers to bypass the existing manual process and input calculations directly into their mobile devices while out in the field, producing an immediate view of the requirements.

“Our mobile app allows engineers in the field to enter complex calculations directly into their mobile devices and get an immediate view of the requirements. This has saved us so much time and money.”

The results

The app Salpo built has positively impacted Spirax Sarco’s efficiency, allowing engineers to quickly make calculations on-site, using their mobile devices, with no need to transport, share and refer to documentation.

The app has saved Spirax Sarco huge amounts of time, while reducing frustration of engineers in the field and increasing staff productivity.
