Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
Once a customer signs up, we configure the system to their requirements, and import any data they wish to import, in the form of CSV files. We create user logins for the customer, and then complete the process by providing them with remote training via screen sharing, or on-site training, as required.
Service documentation
Yes
Documentation formats
  • HTML
  • PDF
End-of-contract data extraction
When a customer wishes to leave at the end of their contract, all the data is extracted in a spreadsheet format, and provided in a zip file by the WorkPal support team, along with any photos or forms added to the system during the course of the contract.
End-of-contract process
We ensure a smooth handover of all customer information and data at the end of service. We provide this in a format that is suitable for each customer and is not charged to the customer.

Differences between the mobile and desktop service
The mobile app is for field workers/engineers, and is tailored to their needs, providing job information and a means to capture their time, tasks, photos, forms and signatures, etc. on the jobs assigned to them.

The desktop app provides the means to administrate and schedule this work, manage customers, track users, generate reports, quote and invoice work. The Desktop app is available on mobile devices too.
Service interface

API
Yes
What users can and can't do using the API
As part of the discovery phase in implementation we would agree what the customer requirements were for an API and ensure this meets their needs. We use RESTful API as this is compatible with most customer systems. Any changes are completed through our team.
API documentation
Yes
API documentation formats
PDF
API sandbox or test environment
Yes
Customisation available
Yes
Description of customisation
Both the desktop and mobile app can be configured, turning off or on the features required, as it suits the particular work of the company. For example, asset management can be turned on for companies who require it, or hidden for companies who do not need this feature.

This configuration is done by the WorkPal implementation team at the beginning of the contract, and can be revised throughout by request.

Bespoke forms for each company are also constructed at the beginning of the contract. These are reproduced digitally, in exactly the same forms as the companies existing paper forms.

Scaling

Independence of resources
Whilst we don't provide load-balancing as part of our service, our hosting is provisioned with much higher capacity than is currently required, so there is significant overhead for times of extra demand.

All our systems usage levels are constantly monitored, and capacity will be increased when we feel it is needed, to ensure no performance impact for our users.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
As a department, changes will be reviewed and approval given based upon the potential risks and a urgency of the change.
The change will be scheduled, and if necessary communications to anyone potentially impacted will also occur.
Once the change is carried out, appropriate testing will be conducted to ensure stability has not been impacted, and if roll-back options are needed they will be carried out.
In the event a change is deemed urgent or critical to maintain service or prevent a security breach, IT Office may deem this process as being too time consuming, and skip straight to implementation.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
We work with our hosting provider to maintain our services, with regard to third-party software, such as operating systems and other software on our hosting platform. The provider will patch any known vulnerabilities as they become apparently. We aim to keep our software patched to the latest versions, paying attention to notices from the suppliers of this software.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Most of the systems deployed and used by WorkPal have some basic form of event logging enabled by default. These logs are regularly reviewed for event ID’s which may indicate unexpected or unauthorised actions on these systems.

During any potential compromise, we would investigate, then notify the affected parties, if applicable.

The incident would be given immediate priority and all resources would be put on to it until it was resolved.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Where an Information Security Incident has occurred (or is suspected) the following process MUST be followed.
Reported to a member of the IT Team as quickly as possible, and providing as much information as is available to the member of staff who first identified the problem.
The member of Staff who received the Incident Report should record the Information in the ticketing system
Once investigations have been concluded, a report should be prepared detailing everything that happened, steps that were taken to mitigate the Incident, and record any possible corrective actions will be recommended to prevent a re-occurrence
