The Conductor Tool

From concept to ready-to-use application in two steps

1. The framework

You will have access to The Conductor Tool in just a few minutes, and you will find that it is ready to use for creating and running applications. When logged in, you will see a menu containing the tools required to create “your” application. This is where you create the data model that forms the foundation for your application. After that you create tables and fields – logically alike sheets and columns in Excel. You do not need to make it perfect. You can edit and modify the application as you go.

2. The form designer

When the framework is ready, you may start working with form design. Using simple drag-and-drop operations, you position tables and fields in a drawing area to create the first form. When you are satisfied with the layout, you save your form. The form can then be used and tested straight away. It is possible to create as many forms as you like, but now your application is ready to be used by you and any users you give access to.

Optimize your company’s workflow

The above steps are all you need to create an application that the staff can use to manage project data via user-friendly forms. The Conductor Tool has other functions that can be used to extend the application and add more value for your company, as well as improving the work processes. Commonly used functions include:

Access rights

This is where you decide which user that will have access rights to view, update, create and delete information. Access control is vital to allow various internal users to interact securely with both customers and subcontractors. This allows your team and all other users to collaborate with deeper integration, and hence work more efficiently.

Business logic and automation

Using the built in trigger and rule functions, your applications can execute “smart” actions such as calculations (e.g. KPIs), sending automatic SMS messages or email notifications. You can also use these rules for status changes and to control workflows.

Reports and key performance indicators

Custom reports can easily be created for various intended recipients and purposes. Key performance indicators can be calculated and for example be displayed in a summary form. The forms that you built in step two can be expanded to visualize the selected data geographically on a map or as graphs and bar charts.

The Conductor Tool gives you plenty of advantages

  • Full control over activities (planning, execution, responsible parties and internal dependencies).
  • Clear and early detection of deviations from the set plan.
  • Automated functionality for coordinating and communicating with, and between, customers and subcontractors
  • Easy access to key performance indicators and reports.
  • Real-time reporting on different levels helps supervise how the project runs and identifies potential bottlenecks.
  • From an idea to a ready-to-run application within a week.
  • The right information accessible to the right players, at the right time.
  • Support for performing many activities in parallel.
  • Built in functionality to automate processes and pro-activity.
  • API that communicates with - and connects - the company's existing IT systems.

"Today we base our decisions on facts."

Increased growth meant additional processes and more information that had to be handled. For Eltel, the situation wasn't without its issues. A cloud solution that could evolve at the company's pace and give control over all the details was therefore implemented. – Today we take decisions based on facts and statistics, not on good assumptions, says Per Schjelderup from Eltel.

Our clients already have a GDPR-friendly environment

Next year, the new data protection act will come into place. At that point every company needs to keep a very good eye on their stored personal data, something that could implicate a change of entire IT-systems. This is a problem that the users of the IS Tools IT-system don’t need to worry about. — We already have the functionality required to meet the new demands, says Johan Barrebo, CEO of IS Tools.

We now know all of the details

— If you can manage an excel spread sheet you can manage Tools. If we need a new feature it is easy to add on, the feature is ready to use within just a few minutes. Niklas Lindström works as IT architect at HSB Business Support. They have been using the IS Tools platform since several years. — The biggest strength is that we now have complete control over all the details and that we can manage everything between invoicing and our different key figures, says Niklas.

That’s why Sweden can be overtaken in the fiber race

Full-scale development of fiber network is ongoing in Sweden. The question is whether it is enough. Nowadays many European countries are investing massively in their fiber networks, which creates a demand for expertise. "A lot of Swedish resources and skills can soon be captured by other countries, while more major markets start to seriously build up fiber networks," said Marco Forzati, researcher at RISE Institute.
