News Spotlight Chat in Microsoft Teams: The unexpected joy of courtesy

Lewis Carroll, author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, once wrote ‘courtesy is a small act, but it packs a mighty wallop’. His words are oddly applicable to the online, locked-down world in which we currently live. Right now, without all the added communication that comes from face-to-face contact, simple courtesy is crucial to getting through the working day happily, with your colleagues on-side. Here, we’ll take Carroll’s maxim and apply it to how we use ‘chat’ in Microsoft Teams.

Permit delays are one of the main causes of cost overruns in the energy and utilities industries.

Some large projects are losing thousands of man hours every day.

ePermit is the heart of Mineral Blue. The purpose of ePermit is to eliminate permit queues. That means reduced costs from reduced worker downtime, and increased safety due to improved permit controller working conditions and workload.

That’s right: ePermit reduces costs and increases safety, at the same time.

ePermit includes six standard permit types out of the box [a general work permit, a hot work permit, a confined space entry permit, and three electrical permits] and the system can be extended to include virtually any permit.

This provides you with a semi-bespoke or completely bespoke solution, for a surprisingly low cost.

ePermit deploys authorised permits instantly to mobile devices. These can be supervisor tablets, or individual worker mobile phones. If you’re not ready for full automation, or if mobile devices are prohibited onsite, then permits can be printed and used conventionally.

ePermit integrates seamlessly with Cobra and mySkills. That means risk documents travel with the permits they relate to, and workers can’t be added to permits, or sign on to work with the system, if they lack the necessary qualifications.
ePermit is easy  to own, easy to use, and easy to get started.

Using our permits, you can be up and running in hours.

ePermit is the next-generation electronic permit-to-work system.
