Our clients required an electronic system designed to allow on site surveys to be completed by Project Managers. The brief was that the information gathered, including photographic evidence, needed to be immediately available for viewing and editing via on online portal.
After looking on the market for an off-the-shelf IT system, nothing was available that would satisfy the exacting requirements, therefore a bespoke system with built-in flexibilty was required.
A tablet would be the mobile device of choice as this offered portability and a touch screen interface but with the size and power required for a pleasant and productive experience.
A rugged PDA or mobile phone solution was deemed not suitable as it was important that a good size and good quality screen was available to view multiple questions/answers.
