2020 -2024 – Chamber of Commerce Hamburg announces the new members of Eastern Europe working group


Tim Mackeldey, Managing Director Europe from CheckMobile has been chosen as a member of the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce (Handelskammer Hamburg) working group, dedicated to East Europe of for the upcoming 4 years.

In in his interview, exclusively for our readers, he shares what are the main priorities of Hamburg Chamber of Commerce and how his experience will contribute to the business relationships development of East Europe.

What is Hamburg Chamber of Commerce’s mission?

The working circle for Eastern Europe is just one of thirty groups within the chamber to contribute to improve the economic exchange between Eastern Europe and Hamburg.  Hanseatic city as ours, has always had a  large trade relations with the East and this particular working circle will consult the president and plenums of the chamber how to further develop the eastern relationships.

What are the biggest challenges that the chamber faces?

The image of Eastern Europe in Germany, especially Russia, needs still a lot of improvement to come closer to the reality. I don’t know if all trade restrictions towards the East are really needed. This will be one of the challanges the group will face.

Which sectors are prioritized and in which projects companies can find collaboration opportunities?

This is a very illustrious and heterogenous working group, covering several industries as well as large players from Hamburg. I think we can improve the situation for any business sector.

How your previous expertise will help you in this this challenge?

I was living and working for the last 15 years in Eastern Europe. In these years I built a huge network in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and the Baltics. The members of the working group cover many industries, and I my role is bring in some missing knowledge of the IT sector.

The usage of AI damage detection can fine-tune the rent and return process

Lectura DigiMessenger explored the potential of digital tools designed for the rent and return process with Tim Mackeldey, Managing Director CheckMobile GmbH, who presented advanced services and solutions such as face recognition or AI damage detection designed not only for the heavy equipment rental industry.

Can you introduce your company to our readers? What services and solutions do you offer?

Checkmobile is a dinosaur in the area of digitalization. The name origins from bringing paper-based checklists onto mobile devices. For more than 15 years we serve large companies with building workflow apps and improve within that processes, make them more transparent, cost cutting and moreefficient. Our clients mainly come from rental, heavy equipment, automotive, producing industry who need a low coding platform to quickly implement a better IT landscape.

As we are a market leader for example in the car rental IT business, we have seen some struggling there. Otherwise with our contactless solutions we have an answer to current and newly appeared problems.

Do you offer any solutions for heavy equipment rental companies?

This is the key industry we are working in and have in Europe as well as in the US the largest players under contract. Starting from rent and return process, over damage detection even with the help of AI, up to analytics and inspection tools, we were able to deliver RoI of factor 15+ to our clients.


What are the main features of CheckMobile Guided Damage System and how does it work?

We have noticed that many companies underestimate the losses produced by damages
on their equipment and created tools, which guide the field
force to accurately analyse all damages, document them, trigger spare parts management and

the logistics plus, what is most important, charge the customers. This is all possible in very intuitive apps we provide with a very quick implementation.

What would you like to achieve in the near future? Do you plan any new digital tools?

Our R&D team consists of several highly qualified developers, who are constantly searching for
the newest technologies, which should help our existing and new customers to stay on the top

of technology and give them a competitive advantage.

In detail, we are developing AI damage detection tools for the automotive sector, we implemented several projects concerning face recognition and look for more solutions in AI automatization.

What you should know about heavy equipment inspection?

Heavy equipment inspection is a regular, routine process that makes sure your fleet is compliant. If executed properly, it can save you from a lot of headaches down the road in both monetary and process execution aspect.

Why regular asset inspections are critical to your heavy equipment lifespan?

The list of benefits of proper and regular inspection is long, but if we have to set the spotlight to the most important one, this will definitely be the safety of your workers. Some other benefits include:

  • Save money (downtime due to breakdowns cost around $1,400 a day, according to Farm Industry News)
  • Lower risk of workplace injuries = save time and re-staffing costs (it costs around $4,129 to hire new employee, according to CAT)
  • Increase productivity – eliminate downtime
  • Lower repair cots – regular small maintenance work can save you from replacement (a bulldozer price can range from $30,000 to >$200,000)
  • Improve equipment availability

There is no doubt that the value of expert advice is priceless –  it is more likely to notice when parts or systems are damaged beyond what an untrained eye can spot.

How can you empower your field workers to see the equipment through the eyes of an expert?

The collected data is instantly added to the machine’s record (including also data from telematics if any), where the condition of the asset is analyzed and further steps can be taken if needed.

IT Project Management with Christin Jessa

IT Project Management – what makes it different?

Reading time: 2 minutes

Christin Jessa is a Project Manager at CheckMobile, responsible for Hertz and DB projects at present. She joined CheckMobile’s team in November, 2019. For such a short period of time, she has already established a structure in her projects and overcomes IT challenges on a daily basis. In this interview, you will get to know Christin, her background and core values of her work.

Tell us about your background as a project manager?

In terms of education, my formal studies were with more technical focus – Digital Media Designer for creating and managing websites. However, even before my graduation, I have always been active and took up several jobs on the way. It turned out that no matter what the work was, I was always responsible for the overall internal processes – it just happened naturally. For me, it was not that big of a deal, as this is part of my character. However, my first employer noticed something exceptional in my working style and gave me the initial idea of becoming a project manager.
So, I listen to his advice and started a job with a formal position as a project manager in an IT software company in the South of Germany. Back then, I was managing 10 customers at a time from the various industries.

Education

Experience

What are the essential skills every project manager should possess?

As you have already noticed, my formal training is not as a project manager, but as a web designer. In my opinion, especially for IT project management is really important to have a technical understanding, good communicational skills (to connect with the customer), and to be able to ask the right questions. But these skills are something that first, you have to possess and second, to develop through real-life experience.

IT Project Manager Skillset

Communication

Are IT project different from the other types of projects?

Yes, absolutely! The challenges and obstacles are way more dynamic and unpredictable compared to any other industry.

What makes IT projects so much more challenging than the other company projects?

You need to be informed

As a project manager you have to monitor the hardware design trends, security requirements and everything that has to do with technologies.

Consult

The customer expects you to be able to give informed advice when needed. You have to solve issues on both the design and software part.

Communicate

Being able to communicate with your technical team possible solutions in a fast and efficient manner is crucial.

The simplest example – think about the hardware aspect of new app development. Smartphones change their hardware so quickly that between the order and the execution of the project, you have at least 2 changes of the mobile design. This is quite a lot. The dynamic of this technological progress makes it so difficult to adjust the interface. Today you have 16:9 screen, tomorrow you see the camera positioned as an interfering element on the top of the screen. This can create a lot of issues, which we have to be aware of and be able to react as possible.

It is different when you are a project manager at the customer side and being a project manager at a software company. In the second case (our case) you should be able to communicate with several customers at once, which could be sometimes tricky. Concentration, attitude and a good working discipline are your essentials.

What’s your personal goal as a project manager at CheckMobile?

To create a structure. This is a key component, especially when you deal with several big players at once – as it is the case for me right now. I believe that delivering a high-quality product to the customer is an important part of establishing trust among business partners. Also, I would like to deepen the agile software development methodology we are currently using. Keeping up with our company’s established working culture, and developing, according to the rising trends, is my mission as a project manager in CheckMobile.

You can’t change what you can’t see

DATA VS INFORMATION

“The first step to implementing a change is to admit that you need it”

Bernd Seitter
VP CheckMobile Russia

And what about step 0?

An unconventional way of counting, but we should know how to prepare for this moment of openness.

To be able to admit you need a change, you should be able to see – as simple as that, but not enough. To be able to make any assumptions, an understanding of what you see is essential.  Or let me use the favorite buzz words of the 21st century – data and information. All companies have data. The bigger the company, the bigger the mess.

Unfortunately, data on its own it’s quite insufficient. The power comes not from the loads of numbers and characters your company have, but from the information that can be extracted. This conversion from data to information is the 0 step.

And here comes the question – is the data I have, the data I need?

You can hire masters in data science to create masterpieces in data analysis, but if the database is not relevant and up to date, it all goes to the trash. How can you ensure that all the numbers you use are representing the present moment?

Well, capturing data in real-time from the field of your company’s operations is the only reasonable solution. Thanks to the advantages that the internet and technologies give us today, this is possible – you just need the right partner for this journey, not only to collect, but to organize and store your numbers, not in data, but information form.

You can apply this solution to every industry and implement it within weeks!
