Manual and Inefficient: Pre-Start Meeting Challenges

Boral Limited struggled with its manual, time-consuming pre-start meeting processes. Staff were required to manually consolidate and transfer information, leading to risks of data loss or miscommunication. This method was labour-intensive, prone to errors, and caused reduced productivity, as valuable time was consumed by preparation rather than operational activities.

Boral sought a solution to streamline these meetings, aiming for automation to eliminate manual inefficiencies. The goal was to create a system for efficient information management, ensuring accurate, timely dissemination while freeing up staff for core duties. By improving these processes, Boral aimed to enhance overall productivity and maintain its competitive edge in the industry.


Responsive Web Application: A Tailored Software for Efficient Pre-Start Meetings

In response to Boral's needs, Lateral developed a cutting-edge responsive web application tailored for pre-start meetings. Responsive web apps are designed to automatically adjust and adapt their layout and content to fit different screen sizes and screen resolutions. This means that the same responsive web app can provide an optimal viewing experience across a variety of devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices like tablets or smartphones.

The responsive design of the software enabled supervisors to consolidate information quickly, creating interactive, visually engaging presentations for their teams. Automation of the process saved time and allowed supervisors to focus on delivering accurate, concise information.

Beyond improving the efficiency of meetings, the responsive web app also served as a centralised platform. It stored critical data, such as Daily Plans, Safety Moments (specific job safety instructions), Blast Zones, Emergency Preparedness Procedures, and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

This information was readily available through the user-friendly interfaces provided by the responsive web design of the app. With easy access to this vital data, Boral's team could put their time and energy to better use, focusing on productivity and achieving their objectives.


Optimised Communication: Streamlined Meetings and Improved Accessibility with Custom Software

The implementation of Lateral's custom software marked a significant milestone for Boral. Essential for keeping staff updated, daily pre-start meetings were streamlined, saving valuable time and reducing the risk of errors. The user-friendly, responsive design and centralised data storage of the application ensured that meeting information and other critical data were easily accessible and well-organised.

This successful collaboration between Boral and Lateral exemplifies the transformative power of digital solutions in optimising business operations and enhancing productivity.

By leveraging technology to automate and improve processes, Boral unlocked new levels of efficiency and effectiveness in their daily operations, demonstrating the potential impact of digital solutions like responsive web application development on operational performance.
