shurjoMukhi has recently won two competitive grants from the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology to build App-based workflow solutions for Utility vendors in the Power Sector of the country. Production Monitoring App for the Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB) is one of them. PGCB Production Monitoring Android Application is developed for the use by all the Mangers, Engineers and stakeholders of PGCB and related organizations so that officials will be able to select the type and frequency of SMSs to be sent to their mobile numbers every day. The same App will also show a few other information considered vital or essential for the stakeholders to be abreast of. PGCB sends thousands of SMS to dozens of officials of various Government and Autonomous Organizations everyday informing them of various power production related statistics. These organizations consist of Government and autonomous entities like the PDB, DPDC, DESCO, WZPDC, REB, Power Cell and the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources. These MIS SMSs inform the Mangers and Engineers and other stakeholders of these entities about: 1. Daily Power Production 2. Hourly Power Production 3. Area Based Generation Information
Benefits of PGCB Production Monitoring App: • Mangers, Engineers and stakeholders of PGCB and related organizations will be able to select the type and frequency of SMSs that gets sent to their mobile numbers every day. • Money being spent on SMSs sent by default currently will be minimized as customization will lead to reduced yet better use of the facility.
The success of the development can very well become a trail blazer inspiring others in the Government sector to replicate its success creating a positive innovative trend of better monitoring and service delivery this way.
