Mobile fieldwork

Enable local government to spend more time in the field, and less time in the office.

Gather real-time data from across the whole community.

Save time and resources, improve productivity and increase revenue with mobile fieldwork, which integrates with back-end council systems. With an office in the pocket, field workers can spend more time in the field, and less time in the office typing and quality proofing data.

Mobile fieldwork is an end-to-end digital solution for councils carrying out field work, such as inspections, assessments and audits. Built to be easy-to-use on any mobile device, using Android, iOS or Windows, mobile fieldwork enables complex data to be viewed and recorded from anywhere, including disconnected areas.

Councils can use mobile fieldwork to record photos, video audio, GPS locations, signatures, and drawings. Map-based annotations can be viewed and captured while in the field, and synched with a Geographic Information System (GIS). Bluetooth printing is also available to issue forms, notices and warnings to customers. All data recorded in mobile fieldwork is synced to a secure cloud solution, where workflow processes, emails and PDFs can be generated to further reduce manual effort.
