Andplus developed a cross-platform (mobile/desktop) application for Lockout/Tagout procedures. We also built a web application to manage job competencies and training requirements, a web survey app, updates to their legacy system and capped it off with great UX design.

  • 5 Steps to Building a Web DashboardREAD NOW

"While each team member was very impressive individually, what made them unique was how well they worked together. I enjoyed seeing them bounce ideas around until they came up with a solution everyone was satisfied with. They were not territorial and were able to coordinate the various elements of the project seamlessly."

The Apps:




SmartSOP was our first application created in partnership with DKF. Designed to act as a safe repository for the Lockout/Tagout Procedures and Standard Operating Procedures for government agencies and corporations. Since these procedures are critical to the safety of workers in hazardous situations, the application had to be easy to use for both technical and nontechnical users. To ensure that applications could be easily accessed regardless of the worksite, AndPlus created a cross-platform application using the Cordova framework for mobile devices and the Electron framework for desktop apps. The apps all share a common codebase utilizing web-based technologies. All of the applications are able to sync data offline for use in places with no connectivity, and display the steps for each procedure in an easy-to-read UI designed by AndPlus. The application is now in use with government agencies across the country, as well as with several large and mid-sized corporations.


SmartSurvey and Job Competencies Builder:

SmartSurvey is one of AndPlus' most recent collaborations with DKF. The web application is designed to help public agencies understand what kind of training their employees need to go through to ensure that they are safely and legally performing their duties. Many agencies are not aware of the regulatory requirements around safety training, and in many cases employees can be in situations they are not trained for, putting themselves and others in danger.

How we architect solutions for complex web dashboards

It all starts with the AndPlus Technical Architects. A team of Senior Engineers that map out every possible tech stack for your mobile app or web dashboard prior to kickoff. The right tech, every time.



The Solution:

In order to better ensure that agencies are keeping up with training standards, DKF and AndPlus partnered to create a survey application for these agencies. AndPlus designed an attractive and attention-grabbing UX that allows agencies to easily understand their current training levels. Bright colors and an intelligently-designed UI make the data resonate with users and ensure that agencies are conscious of which areas require more attention. 


SmartSurvey works hand-in-hand with another AndPlus/DKF product, the Job Competencies Builder, in which parent agencies can create standard job profiles and list any required training needed for various positions across the organization. Together, agencies can use these products to mitigate risk and ensure that all of their employees are properly, and safely, trained.



AndPlus understands the communication between building level devices and mobile devices and this experience allowed them to concentrate more on the UI functions of the project. They have built a custom BACnet MS/TP communication stack for our products and are looking at branching to other communication protocols to meet our market needs. AndPlus continues to drive our product management to excellence, often suggesting more meaningful approaches to complete a task, and offering feedback on UI and Human Interface based on their knowledge from past projects.
