2018 at GeoPal - A Review

So it’s that time of the year again, everyone is preparing for the holidays in one sense - but in another, it’s a time to take a look at how things have gone in your business over the past year, and more importantly, make plans for changes in the coming year! A number of the team from our Dublin office are pictured above from our recent Christmas Party!

2018 has been a great year for GeoPal - in fact, it’s been our best year to date! We’ve added a number of new customers throughout the year and added some new faces to the team to support this growth, not forgetting our award successes throughout 2018!

Here are just some of our highlights from 2018:

New customers:

In 2018 so far we have added more than twenty customers to the GeoPal Client list across a number of industries and geographies, all with a specific requirement for a tool like GeoPal including global deals with Landis+Gyr, FAAC and JLL.

Partners:

Leica:

You may have seen some information on our partnership with Leica Geosystems during the summer, a partnership aiming to add high accuracy to mobile operations, drive efficiency, productivity, ensure safety benefits for users - you can read the full article here. ​

Netsuite:

GeoPal is now a Netsuite official application, listed on the SuiteApp Store, a huge achievement for the team. This is a direct response to custom API work undertaken to build a direct integration into the Oracle Netsuite solution extending the package to users outside the office environment The GeoPal  Field Operations Management Mobile Application solution is designed to integrate effortlessly with NetSuite, providing a communication channel between the back office and the front lines.

Awards:

GeoPal has been very successful on the awards front in 2018 and we’re hoping to continue this success into 2019 and beyond. Here are the main ones this year:

Business All-Stars:

GeoPal was accredited with the All-Star Technology Business of the Year at the All-Ireland Business Summit powered by Audi on April 19th.

Deloitte Fast 50:

GeoPal ranked number 29th in the 2018 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Ireland. Rankings are based on average percentage revenue growth over four years. “We’re delighted to be recognised as one of the 50 fastest growing Irish technology companies” explains Gerard O’Keeffe, Chief Executive Officer at GeoPal. “The competition takes into account our impressive growth rate over the past 4 years which reflects the growing number of Utility contractors choosing to use GeoPal to better manage their Field Operations".

Technology Ireland Awards:

GeoPal was named the winner of the Technology Ireland Digital Technology Services Project of the Year Award at the 26th Annual Technology Ireland Industry Awards in November. We were delighted to be recognised for an innovative product offering and the level of service the team provides to our customers.

Product Updates:

Timesheet Management Module:

The GeoPal Mobile App can now be used for complex timesheet management such as applying in-depth overtime rules automatically, assigning labour costs to applicable projects and digitising the approval process, providing notifications and an audit trail of all approved work completed. GeoPal Timesheet Management can be used as a stand-alone app or can be implemented alongside the full GeoPal Field Operations Management solution to provide complete control over your field based team.

BI Dashboards:

We have introduced Business Intelligence Dashboards into GeoPal which can be configured to give management in-depth analysis of information stored within the system. If you would like to get a demo of the dashboards or would like to discuss how it may work for your team - please contact your account manager!

Platform Application:

GeoPal launched its new Platform application this year. This platform is designed fresh from the ground up to allow seamless cross-functional working on both IOS and Android devices. The IOS application may be used in place of, or in conjunction with the current Android solution. This allows our customers the choice of platforms, yet retains their business rules, data workflows and template designs.
