In March 2020, as the news of the dangers of COVID-19 were spreading, our People Support team needed to ensure the safety of our people while still working together. 

Luckily, at Chess, we were geared up for working from anywhere as our six sites already collaborated on Teams. The challenge was how to centralise the reporting and tracking of team statuses across the organisation. 

Combining the capabilities of Power Apps, Power Automate, Power BI and Teams, our Development team created the Location app which is now used by the whole company. The People Support team now have full visibility of which of our people work from the office every day, track the morale scores and the hours, enabling them to coordinate our resources as required.
