Like many organisations, great ideas are vital in ensuring that we remain relevant in a world that is rapidly challenged by digitalisation. And sometimes the best ideas are developed when we collaborate and work as a team.
In this new digital age, hackathons have become fun ways to push boundaries, and for inspiring new and unique ideas. They are exciting to work in because they demand collaboration and encourage participants to develop innovation with meaning and purpose. Despite its fast and short-lived nature, the hackathon forces participants to focus on an issue and think of a diverse set of inputs to solve real-world problems.
At Certis, innovation underscores the good work that we do. We are driven by purpose to make the world safer, smarter and better. Certis recently organised our first virtual hackathon to inspire employees to crystallise that thinking. During the gruelling two-day virtual hackathon, teams came together to be inspired to solve a problem in a collaborative online space.
Using the Certis Service Delivery System methodology, the winning team eliminated inefficiencies by automating the coin deposit process. In two days, the team developed four platforms which was no mean feat. Apart from guidance through a crash course on Power Platforms by Microsoft, the team members were also resourceful in their research to put together the winning solution.
“The hackathon presented me with a great opportunity to put my digital skill-sets to the test. As a team, we stepped out of our comfort zone to really push boundaries and think of innovative solutions to solve problems. Through the hackathon, we kept up our positive spirit and overcame the challenges with our superb teamwork,” said Jenrich Chua, Senior Manager, Quality Excellence, Certis.
