Improved mental health of road and shed workers with modern apps
“We were working on such a short timeline, but VMware Tanzu Labs was great at delivering what we needed. There are so many things we can do with this app, and we’ve had the chance to experiment and test bits and pieces before deciding what to add. There is a massive need for these resources, so our challenge was prioritizing what we should include first.”
Naomi Frauenfelder, CEO, Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds
Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds (HHTS) engaged with VMware Tanzu Act, a program offered by VMware Tanzu Labs, to design a mobile application with tailored content for truck drivers, shed, and logistics workers. The app includes, with more features to come, handbooks for frontline staff; well-being check-in features; stretching exercises and breathing techniques; and support services from Australian mental health service providers. Through their engagement, the Tanzu product team conducted user interviews to gather information to understand how to best design an app for this unique demographic. What the team has developed is a modern app that is based on exactly what the users need, delivering the most successful technology solution.
