Carter Synergy have complex requirements that are unique, not only to their industry, but to their company too. With this has come a number of challenges which have successfully been overcome through customisation of our solution to ensure needs are met as specified.
Workforce mobilisation of 400 engineers.
Solarvista LIVE Mobile is a fully customisable app which entails sophisticated workflow. The workflow can be tailored to each job sent through to the engineer’s phone with the dependant rules associated with it. By implementing this mobile workforce app, Carter Synergy can complete jobs quickly and capture the correct information required at each stage of the engineers’ job life cycle.
“Solarvista have provided Carter Synergy with a service management system for the last 5 years. During this period we have undertaken several development projects in partnership with one another, that have delivered enhancement to our processes. Most recently we have implemented their new mobile platform Solarvista Live, across our 380 service engineers. The solution is customisable and much quicker to use. The result has been more reliable data, and a workflow that feels bespoke whilst still being delivered on their standard platform.”

Verisae is a popular choice amongst Retail for managing maintenance tasks for their sites, allowing their contractors and employees to manage work orders from one system. Many of Carter Synergy’s customers use Verisae and in order to increase their efficiencies and customer service, it became apparent that productivity and service levels would increase through connecting those two systems for a more efficient process.
Connecting to Verisae for a seamless operation.
Carter Synergy and Solarvista Software successfully completed a project for integration to Verisae in order to save time on administration and provide a better-quality service to customers.
Since the move to Solarvista LIVE mobile and the integration to Verisae, Carter Synergy have seen many improvements to their operational processes and visible improvements to the accuracy of data captured.
“The integration with Verisae saves around 60% of call logging time. This is on a single customer, but we are looking to expand this before the end of the year. The new Solarvista technologies have brought the cost of integration down since the first interface was built, this has made it viable to expand the use of this to 4 other customers.”
- MIS Manager, Carter Synergy
The integration to Verisae aided an informed approach as users are able to access information on both systems in real-time. Calls back and forth between Verisae users and Solarvista users reduced significantly and there was also an inevitable reduction in re-keying data between systems.
As a result of the integration to Verisae, Carter Synergy have seen an increase in productivity by a staggering 60%.
