The Kapsch App

A new service that Kapsch put at your fingertips. It’s the mobile tachometer. This app is useful to keep your travel expenses controlled. The app shows you how many kilometers have you used the express way and indicates the cost of each travel. In this way you know the cost of your travel online, and you can review your month bills and compare them with your own information. And the best of all: It is free! Yes! You just have to see some ads from time to time. Of course you can avoid the ads paying a very low fee once a year.
The cost to develop this project could be very cheap, because it could be made by trainee students on summer. It’s a very innovative way to approach to the regular public so they can know who is Kapsch. Typically Kapsch works just with very large companies that owns the express ways, but with this app we have a path to let us know in a different way. That’s the reason to do it.

A Day at Work

My day start early with a shower. After that I have a very fast breakfast. After that, my wife and I leave my son at school. Then I take a Transantiago to my workplace. At work the first thing I do is to say hi to all my team and have a little chat with each one to know if everything is in calm. Then I review my inbox. With this information I plan my day. Then I asked for the status of projects and prepare a summary to my boss. The list is ordered by level of urgency and importance. Normally if something is pending from the day after take more urgency. If there is everything controlled, I review some personal projects and make annotations to generate useful information for the future. Unfortunately in practice my day is gone just with urgent things, the important ones remains pending until they became urgent. L
