Jobsites are the places, where a project’s most important data is generated and the main activity takes place. The field provides the most critical assets a company can have. For a long time there was a gap in the flow of communication between the field and the office due to the office-focused technology solutions. Fortunately, nowadays field-oriented mobile apps actively appear. However, it is extremely important to choose the right mobile solution for the field workflow. Here are some tips for it.
Simple and to the point
The traditional paperwork has long been proven to be inefficient in the field, but mobile apps can waste just as much time if they are not built in a proper way and with the end user in mind. If the app is not intuitive for the field, or overloaded, no one out there on the jobsite will have any opportunity or interest in using it, so the investment will turn out to be a waste. It is quite important to find the balance between the power and simplicity of the app. The functionality should be developed due to the actual requirements of the field specialists and clear to use. Clear and helpful app is a right way to a rise of productivity.
Keeping all parts of the workflow on the “same page”
Synchronization is critical to choose a field solution. The app should tie together data from all field professionals of all jobsites. When every worker uses a different system for work with data and reporting, it is difficult for managers to keep track of data and the whole workflow. The best field apps offer a synced system, so that all information is submitted in one place, and data is accessible at any time.
Mobile apps for a field workflow should contain specific features. For example, frequently, field workers don’t have opportunity to type. This way, voice-to-text feature becomes an inalienable component of the field app. Find more other required features for field work here.
