Summary of the subsidy application’s professional content:

In the last decade, Geometria Kft. introduced their work control system called Mirtusz at several public utility companies. This system supports the control, monitoring and documentation of the work performed in different public utility networks as well as optimising technicians’ resource management. The system helps the work of dispatchers who organise and manage the planned and unplanned tasks. On the other hand, it also supports the work of technicians efficiently who have to complete the practical tasks. The system consists of a central work control application and a mobile application of job sheets that is available on the technicians’ devices. The mobile application was completely renewed in the last years. Besides managing the job sheets, it has been expanded with an integrated mobile GIS system called GeoMobil.

The aim of this project is to renew the central Mirtusz, which would lead to a new central work control system that can meet today’s needs both technologically and regarding its services and appearance. From a technological point of view, an architecture should be created where data storage, business logic and displaying layers are clearly separated, and also, certain elements may be replaced if needed. On the one hand, this means that the data source of the central, business logic part could be a database of different relations (e.g. Oracle, PostgreSQL). This way, it could be easily adaptable to certain corporate IT standards and financial opportunities. On the other hand, a user interface would be created that allows people to use different client devices and platforms. As part of the project, it has to be assessed and decided whether it should be a thin client architecture (i.e. an application run in the browser), or a client-side technology that can be compiled from a native code to different platforms. While preparing the client-side, appearance plays an important role, too, both from an aesthetic and an ergonomic point of view in order to create an easy-to-use, “easy to sell” product. The business logic of the system (i.e. the functions to be created) would mean the core of our current Mirtusz systems. These can be divided into 4 larger groups: administrational functions, functions to support work planning, functions to support work performing, and analysing functions. By administrational functions, we mean e.g. authority and resource management, a standard system (work types), functions to manage shifts, different logging and notifying services, as well as operating of mobile devices. The system supports work planning by compiling work, allocating resources and also allocating them to shifts. The system would support performing work in two ways. On the one hand, by managing data on mobile devices. On the other hand, independent of that, an interface is provided to record work statuses and data, as well as to finish and close the work. Analyses are fundamental reports or statements that allow the user to monitor the current state and to analyse the work performed.

In order to participate in international expos and fares, as well as to adapt to the more and more multicultural environment, the system is available in different languages.

The one created in this project is going to be the prototype of the new central Mirtusz system. It will be sold to smaller public utility companies on its own as a service (Software as a Service).

Alternatively, it will be used by larger clients as an easy-to-use work control system with certain specific modules added.
