Enterprise Apps: TasRail Fault Reporting System

TasRail Enterprise Fault Management System

Tasrail came to us with a problem. The fault reporting system for their locomotive fleet was labour intensive, difficult to track and lacked accountability.

We were pleased to be able to offer a digital solution that resolved the problem. After working with their team to define the requirements for their system, we created an iPad app and administration portal that communicated faults between drivers on board their locomotives, maintenance departments and administration.

Our solution provides ease of reporting, transparency in processes and useful data management for the company.

But how do you know which paint colours are used, or which paint colours would match the colour of that flower, or that sunset, or that ancient temple? With Haymes iColour you can simply snap a photo with your in-built iPhone camera and then have iColour match the nearest Haymes Paint colour to your selected colour from the photo — great huh?

Don’t have time to match the colour there and then? No problem. Simply snap a photo and then open it in the iColour app when you get home — simple! Haymes iColour allows you to pick any colour from your photos by tapping on the screen. The app will then match your desired colour to one of Haymes’ 400+ paint colours. Not only that, but iColour will then recommend a variety of different colour combinations that coordinate well with your selected colour using colour theory and the colour wheel. And if you don’t like the recommended schemes, simply shake your iPhone to see a new range of schemes! Haymes’ team of professional colour consultants have also been through the entire Haymes colour range and have put together a collection of Designer Schemes for each and every colour so there is sure to be one that suits your individual taste.

Dream Home Visualiser: Metricon

Dream Home Visualiser: Metricon

Introducing the Metricon Visualiser:


Autech announces the completion of Metricon Homes’ new online visualiser, Envisage.  Developed over the course of 12 months, Envisage was launched as part of Metricon Homes’ new Studio M website. Autech’s innovative new software allows Metricon customers to visualise how their new home will look – inside and out – before the foundations are even laid.

By visiting the Studio M website, customers can see how their new home can look with bricks, render, feature stone or cladding on their external walls, and how tiles or COLORBOND® steel will look on their home. 

Inside you can view every possible combination of carpets, timber flooring and tiles on the floor, over 2,000 paint colours on the wall, and the full range of Laminex and Caesar Stone on your kitchen bench-tops – the options are almost endless. 

In all, there are 12 exterior facades and 12 interior room settings to choose from, plus over 20 supplier product ranges featured in the software, with many more to be added in the coming months.

As well as allowing customers to gaze into the future, Metricon’s Envisage program is fantastic for their sales team.  Envisage is fully integrated into Metricon’s own internal customer databases, so that any selection that a customer makes are saved to their existing Metricon Account.  This information can then be retrieved and reviewed at any time by Metricon staff.  The program also includes a back-end admin system that allows Metricon edit the tools and products available to customers; meaning that if they change their product line-up at any point, Envisage can be changed to reflect this.
