Introduction

Playground Guardian™ provides on-site playground, park inspection, and planning services to state and municipal clients across the country. For over 50 years their passionate team of experts have helped thousands of playgrounds become safer by helping communities effectively inspect, maintain, and design playgrounds for future generations. They wanted to streamline their inspection process from a traditional pen and paper approach to a web based system. The team at VIG helped transform their ideas into reality.

Assignment

The Playground Guardian™ team partnered with VIG to develop a modern, comprehensive, secure software system to connect their various services and resources across a range of users and devices. In the past, their sales and services were managed through a variety of traditional software and paper systems. Playground Guardian™ needed a custom web-based application that connected their team, resources and devices all in one location.

Challenge

Performing various types of safety inspections and audits for multiple clients across the nation while relying on a traditional pen and paper system wasn’t a sustainable solution for Playground Gurardian.™ With a mountain of inspection data covering everything from faulty equipment to facility concerns, it was becoming more and more difficult to manage data. Their team needed a solution to bring all of their processes into one online tool. The development team at VIG created a custom web application to fit their unique needs.

Strategy

VIG developed a Web-based software as a service (SaaS) application for the Park Protector inspection software. The Web application is accessible from any computer with an Internet connection and works in tandem with an Android and/or iOS mobile app to ensure that records remain secure and are easy to access from any location within the park.

Built to work with the Park Protector Web-based application, this mobile app further increases efficiency in the inspection process. It allows field inspectors to access records and upload reports instantly from their mobile devices. The Park Protector applications have helped Playground Guardian™ increase sales of its SaaS solution and increase revenue. It also saved the company money by reducing internal inefficiency.
