Zurich-Based Start-up Timly: A SAAS Platform for Managing Key Company Resources

Manage inventory in the cloud: When it comes to digitalisation, not all companies are at the same stage. While projects are already being implemented in the financial and ICT sectors, other sectors tend to lag behind. In the Swiss IT Study 2020 – recently published by Computerworld – around 60 per cent of all IT decision-makers surveyed from the health and social care sector stated that their company is either still inactive in this regard, is only evaluating possibilities or is currently planning pilot projects.

With a smart solution, the Zurich-based start-up Timly wants to help companies that still have potential in the digital transformation. As the two founders Philipp Baumann and Fitim Mehmeti explain, they noticed in discussions with a partner from the construction industry that he lacked an overview of deadlines, safety training or the regular maintenance of equipment and vehicles. Yet it is also possible to manage straight vehicles and other inventory in the cloud, with clever inventory software.

For example, there are many companies that own a large number of vehicles, devices, machines or systems – but still keep information about them in drawers and folders spread throughout the entire company,” Baumann explains.

The operating instructions are often not located where the equipment is. Inspection and maintenance documents are also stored in different folders. “Sometimes there is even no overview of the inventory and the exact location of equipment,” the Timly co-founder continues and reports about a clinic where they even had to search for expensive medical equipment at different locations as part of a project.
