Potential Use-Cases

In today's fast-changing world, current and accurate information is more important than ever. Organizations now require reliable field data collection with context-sensitive information for various reasons.

Unfortunately, most of the field personnel today use paper forms or camera devices to collect relevant information. The data then has to be sent off to get tagged, catalogued and compiled before it can be useful. This process is usually very time consuming, but the real issue is linking the complied data to the correct meta-data. Since the data often has to move through several people, human error is a real possibility. Even one error means committing valuable time and resources for correction rather than having those resources focused on higher priority issues.

Organizations ranging from commercial to government sectors perform mobile field data collection which could involve situations such as assessing the health of bridges, finding fallen power lines, recording fire arson cases, locating potholes on streets, performing environmental data assessment, inspecting food storage areas, reading electrical meters, finding graffiti on buildings, knowing road accident conditions, inspecting animal live stocks, surveying pharmacies or recording media-news, etc.

The PublicBuddy™ solution improves enterprise mobile field data collection and its information management, encompassing analytics and spatial presentation. Key stakeholders can make informed decisions based on real-time assessments with ease of use and 24/7 usability.
