Field Operations & Data Collection App October 17, 2022
Field Operations & Data Collection App
The power of location improves coordination and efficiency in field operations. Use field apps to reduce or even replace reliance on paper. Improve the data accuracy of field assets through purpose-built data collection apps. Ensure that field and office staff use the same authoritative data to reduce errors, boost productivity, and save money.
Purpose-built apps working together
Organizations of all types find numerous advantages from a suite of mobile apps that support their field activities in connected or disconnected environments. These easy-to-use apps can be deployed as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution or behind your firewall.
Get the office and the field working in unison. Leverage the power of location to understand where work needs to be done and effectively coordinate and dispatch resources. Your existing authoritative data is the backbone on which field activity planning is done
Your data, your roads—even while offline. Consistently meet deadlines by using the most efficient routes so you can arrive on time and get the job done. Drivers keep their eyes on the road by using voice-guided routing that even considers the type of vehicle being driven and road restrictions along the route.
Take your organization’s digital maps with you, anywhere and anytime. Use a current map to find assets and areas of interest or to see what is in the surrounding area. Promote your spatial awareness and understanding when performing inspections, responding to natural disasters, or engaging in other activities that benefit from spatial context.
Replace outdated paper-based workflows. Enable workers to easily perform accurate data collection and asset inspections in any environment with data collection apps for mobile workers of all technical levels. Field-captured data immediately feeds into your system of record, streamlining life cycle management and supporting better decision-making.
Make decisions at a glance. Easy-to-understand dashboards and maps support informed decision-making. Communicate the status of field operations to managers by monitoring, tracking, and reporting real-time data feeds, location tracks, and activities that focus on what matters most. Present maps and dashboards to apprise constituents of activities and events that impact them.
Know what happens in the field. Enable those in the field to share their location tracks so you can know where everyone is and where they have been. Location sharing is a capability of ArcGIS that is available in multiple solutions. For field personnel, track sharing can be accomplished through a field app that is controlled entirely by the user. Authorized managers and supervisors can use a web app to visualize and analyze track data to better allocate field personnel to areas of need, supporting more effective management of field activities.
