About the clientAnthony Serdula is the founder of A. Anthony Corp, a facility management company that leverages technology to optimize operational tasks. A. Anthony Corp. helps organizations streamline business processes with powerful solutions and highly skilled personnel. With over 20 years of extensive industry expertise and a growing network of services, Anthony is actively engaged in the process of Operational Excellence and continuous improvement. A. Anthony Corp optimizes buildings operations and makes sure clients can focus on what they do best. To deal with internal processes of companies and tackle the building operations inefficiencies the facility management software was created. This work order management system helps businesses effectively deal with maintenance requests inside a company, providing full transparency and accuracy.
Project ideaMost companies are overwhelmed with a large amount of paperwork when it comes to managing their facilities. Our client's idea was to develop a custom B2B facility management app that would automate the workflow between organizations and service providers. Now it's an all-in-one tool where companies can create work orders, manage invoices, choose suppliers, and track reports about the work done.
StoryAnthony Serdula contacted Apiko back in 2016 to partner with an idea to create a B2B platform - an essential solution for digital transformation in facility management. Its main purpose was to optimize and automate the internal processes of the company, mainly the management of company's personnel and external technicians who perform scheduled and emergency maintenance work at facilities. The project would be a complete rebuild of an internal business application that started 16 years ago.
Having been working with enterprises for over 20 years, our client has gained an incredible insight into how inefficient the processes are throughout the facility industry. The salt of the A. Anthony Corp. project is the complete customization of the knowledge management of which a part is work order management software customizable to the customer needs. The system can be adapted to any organization's size and work flow requirements, and it works the way your business does.
According to the set requirements, AAC and Apiko developed two software products for different user roles: a Poly website, including a site for admins, and a Poly mobile app for technicians. Also, we've integrated an existing accounting module - Xero, however, due to the lack of flexibility, our team is actively working on the development of a custom solution. The long-term partnership enables us to keep the platform optimization in progress and achieve better arrangement of the facilities' service management data.

Poly: Accounting ModuleTo make everyday transactions easier and more efficient, a custom accounting module is being written for A. Anthony Corp. We started with Xero, a ready solution, but quickly realized that it's very general and not flexible enough for internal business processes. A custom solution allows to process customers' and suppliers' invoices with 100% accuracy. Plus, it is possible to create any custom report you need and not just those provided by a ready solution.
Poly: Platform reportsThe platform is built to process incoming requests, properly categorize the work, prioritize and forward to a responsible party. Automated collecting, measuring and analyzing your facilities management data is one of the main goals of a work order app. A. Anthony Corp solution helps you stay on top of building operations data in the form of numerous up-to-date reports, so that you can meet all your objectives hassle-free.
