We’re just getting started: Our year in review

Mobile Epiphany is an established enterprise-class mobile software company in its 11th year of business. Its mobile platform technology is used to rapidly create cost-effective mobile apps to solve any business process challenge across any industry, regardless of complexity. Initially, Mobile Epiphany succeeded in creating many custom mobile applications for specific business challenges on a project by project basis. While Mobile Epiphany still takes on custom projects regularly, these new, standardized apps fall under our brand “Krinkle”, which we have been expanding upon ever since. This last year, we’ve been particularly busy adding new and innovative capabilities to the next generation of our existing apps while also adding new apps to our suite of “purpose-specific” Krinkle solutions.

 

 

For the oil and gas industry, Krinkle launched two new mobile software solutions this last year. Krinkle began servicing the oil and gas industry four years ago with the launch of its premier LDAR tracking software, Krinkle LDAR Tracker®. Over these last four years, we’ve gained a great deal of expertise in the LDAR process and we further innovated new ways where Krinkle LDAR Tracker® could improve. One of the biggest challenges our clients faced was coordinating the communication between multiple different subcontractors (such as inspectors, repairmen, verifiers, etc.) working on the same well sites, compressor stations, etc. This insight led us to develop Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro®, an advanced version of our original LDAR compliance software. The Pro version adds a series of new and innovative features including its premier feature - seamless work order sharing.

The “Shared Work Order” system automatically pushes the initial work order forward to all the subsequent users who need it (the initial inspector, then repair people, then verifiers, etc.), simply by detecting when the previous step is complete. This eliminates the need for the project managers to engage in endless phone calls, coordination meetings, excel files and forgotten or lost next steps. Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro® showcased this innovative new feature at the 2019 Oil and Gas Environmental Conference (OGENV 2019). Krinkle's Sr. Business Analyst, Dr. Glenn Kletzky, gave a presentation at the event alongside Vertex Resource Services’ VP of US Operations, Mr. Dhugal Hanton. The presentation focused on how deploying LDAR Tracker Pro® resulted in Vertex gaining a higher level of compliance and situational awareness which has enabled them to better serve their clients.

 

 

Mobile Epiphany’s software has been used to inspect close to 1,000,000 fire doors for the fire and life safety industry over the last four years. Mobile Epiphany has been working with subject matter experts in the fire door service industry for years to create its comprehensive (inspections, estimates to repair, repairs performed, etc.) application. In 2019, we officially launched the standardized version of our fire door inspection software, Krinkle Fire Door®. The mobile app guides inspectors to even more easily adhere to NFPA standards, speeds up work and automates fire door reporting. Krinkle has taken the mobile app beyond traditional fire door inspection software, to a complete mobile and back-office solution that drives your business.

 

 

Over the last 3 years, Krinkle Debris Tracker® has reconciled disaster data required by FEMA in multiple states and counties. From natural disasters including hurricanes Maria, Irma and Harvey, as well as the Northern and Southern California wildfires, Krinkle Debris Tracker®’s performance, was unrivaled. In 2019, Krinkle Debris Tracker® impressed attendees at the 33rd annual Governor's Hurricane Conference in Florida with its 4th year of updates and increased capabilities. Emergency management professionals and those involved in preparedness, planning, response and recovery at all levels of the government, industry, and private interest gathered to exchange ideas and see the latest and greatest advancements in emergency response. Krinkle presented our powerful disaster management software solutions - Krinkle Debris Tracker® and Krinkle Damage Tracker® - both showcased during live demonstrations, presented by Dr. Glenn Kletzky. The two solutions attracted the interest of more than 50 organizations.

 

 

Krinkle Rebuild Tracker® is a proven solution for heavy equipment dealers looking to track their major components during the rebuild process. The mobile app has been successfully deployed internationally, from the United States to Africa, the Middle East and beyond. This established success led Krinkle to attend the Western Region Meeting for CAT dealers and their IT people (WRIT 2019 in Las Vegas). The mobile app had already proven itself in component rebuild centers internationally as it has been in use at the Cashman and Mantrac Caterpillar rebuild centers for the last two years. This was highlighted in a presentation given by Dr. Glenn Kletzky. His presentation also focused on how what Krinkle Rebuild Tracker® did for CAT’s dealers could be done for any heavy equipment manufacturer, regardless of the brand, facility size, or language spoken by its users.

Krinkle Rebuild Tracker® also fully integrated with Modern® this last year. Modern® is a sales department and customer communications text messaging system popular among many of the CAT Dealers that Krinkle works with. Krinkle Rebuild Tracker®’s integration effort with Modern® highlights Krinkle’s commitment to heavy equipment dealers, software vendors and the ecosystem as a whole. In 2020, we plan on launching a new hose manufacturing tracking mobile application that has been successfully deployed in multiple locations across Mantrac’s dealerships.

After a successful year of developing new Krinkle apps, updating existing software, speaking at trade shows and integrating with other software, Krinkle has big plans for 2020. Going forward, Krinkle plans to continue improving the business processes and relationships we made in 2019, while simultaneously launching new products to solve business challenges for other industries.

Krinkle Fire Door®. Not Your Grandfather’s Fire Door Inspection App.

Fire door inspection apps are a dime a dozen and most of them are woefully incomplete. Often times, fire door inspections are just an afterthought in some limited “Fire & Life Safety” app and these apps rarely reflect the true nature of the NFPA codes. Their line of simple “yes/no” questioning is incapable of addressing the details your company requires. They are basic checklists devoid of true fire door specificity.

Krinkle Fire Door® is a new breed of fire door inspection software for the professional inspection company that wants to do it right – from the beginning of the process to the end of verified repair and compliance. Fire door inspections need to not only address the NFPA requirements thoroughly, but they also need to help drive your business and generate reports that are valuable to your clients. Door hardware companies experience an even greater return on investment (ROI) with Krinkle’s “parts and labor” repair add-on for Fire Door®. The Mobile app’s add-on guides your repair persons through all subsequent steps that are required to achieve full compliance, including (i) estimating the cost of upcoming parts and labor for client approval, (ii) itemizing the right parts so you can prepare for the return visit and (iii) billing your client for the final cost of parts and labor. This helps you keep the after-sales business in house and moving smoothly. Even if your company does not perform the repairs, the included reports for your inspectors make it possible for the parts and labor company coming behind you to succeed. Your client will appreciate how you went above and beyond to provide their chosen repair company with the information they needed. Ultimately, this allows your company to return after repairs are completed and get paid to verify that all expected repairs are in compliance.

Krinkle Fire Door® isn’t just a complete NFPA-adherent fire door inspection app. It actually guides all parties involved to run their business and track the process through verified completion and compliance.

When considering software, smart companies will look for true business process automation applications that fit well with their business development model. Simple forms apps have minimal value and are only slightly better than using pen and paper. If your company is looking for a complete mobile solution that automates process, is easy to learn, easy to deploy and enables your company’s growth, look no further than Krinkle Fire Door®.

Krinkle Fire Door® includes a number of features that far surpass traditional door inspection software like smart forms that speed up work, while simultaneously giving you the ability to track assets like customers, buildings, fire doors, fire door frames, and fire dampers, and all associated inspections. Krinkle Fire Door® differentiates itself even further by introducing features like automated report generation with automatic NFPA code compliance matching. Our wide selection of included reports makes proving compliance faster and easier than ever. Additionally, custom reports can be developed for a nominal, one-time fee.
Other advantages of using Krinkle Fire Door® are:

• We offer unlimited users for no additional costs. We only charge one fee per door inspected, no matter how much repair data, parts and labor data and reporting are managed beneath that door’s inspection.

• Krinkle Fire Door® supports both iOS and Android devices, making it easier for your contractors and employees to adopt. Whatever device they currently own (Tablet or Phone) will work, eliminating your need to buy new or specialty devices.

• Krinkle Fire Door® supports highly secured offline work. No need to be actively connected to the internet. Connecting once or twice a day will work just fine.

• Krinkle Fire Door® also allows you to remotely assign inspections/repairs to your employees and contractors, while centrally managing the data they collect.

• When the aforementioned features come together, companies are provided the means to easily allocate, track and complete more work in less time, thereby expanding their scale. Even subcontractors all around the nation become simple to manage. This enables companies to quickly and easily increase their service area, and scale up the number of inspections they can take on each year.

Krinkle Fire Door® distinguishes itself from other door inspection software with its code compliance reports, automatic parts and labor costing, Android and iOS compatibility, and its ability to guide the entire process, from inspection to final verification of repairs.
