Flowfinity Wireless Inc., a provider of enterprise mobile apps, today announced that its enterprise mobility application enhances field operations for engineering companies.
The Vancouver-based company’s platform helps engineering firms improve the efficiency of field data collection activities, including inspections and site assessments, with the help of smartphones and tablets, the company said.
A recent study by Forrester found that “businesses that are most mature in mobile also have the fastest revenue growth rates emphasizing the continuing desire and need for rapid mobile app development (RMAD) and mobility in the workplace. Responding efficiently to ever-changing customer, project and compliance requirements is vital to business success in this industry.”
Already in use for optimizing field work management and operational processes by top engineering firms globally, Flowfinity enables mobile apps, forms and workflows to be created using a point-and-click editor. Inspection reports and engineering change orders can be customized to include dynamic fields such as checklists, site photos, GPS locations and digital signatures, enabling companies to follow engineering principles with proper control and documentation.
With two-way information from a centralized database, Flowfinity allows staff in the field to access instruction manuals and handbooks on their mobile devices, with or without network coverage.
