Collecting data for any asset management system is probably the most difficult part, but Capture-fm® mobile enables you to quickly and efficiently collect asset information and send it back to base without needing a PC or additional software - helping to reduce overall cost and potential support implications.
Capture-fm® mobile is our portable surveying software and can be used to collect your asset, location and user information along with PAT testing records, Delivery information and Scheduled movement records. The mobile PDA's don't even need to be connected to your PC to send data and can be used completely off-line for those environments where a wireless signal is not available or not allowed.
Capture-fm® mobile is the perfect tool for use in conjunction with Capture-fm® and allows you to quickly and accurately record your assets through a mobile PDA device.
The PDA is used to scan your barcodes prior to them being compiled into a finished file for sending back to the main software.
The handhelds do not need to be connected to your PC to send data as they come equipped with WiFi and GSM Data capabilities. They can also be used completely offline for those environments where a wireless signal is not available or allowed.
Based around Microsoft's .NET compact framework and Microsoft SQL Express, our software will work on a massive range of PDA devices based on the Windows Mobile operating systems. These can range from inexpensive standard PDA's to ruggedised industrial hand-held devices – effectively removing hardware lock-in issues and allowing you to choose the best solution for your needs.
The actual survey process on the handheld is fully customisable, allowing for the various survey questions to be switched on or off to make sure you only record the necessary information. Within each survey question a list of pre-defined answers can be populated and if you require, the option for manual input by the surveyor can be activated or deactivated.
In addition to this, Capture-fm® mobile can also collect Portable Appliance Test information via our unique QuickPAT mode, saving not only time, but by taking the human element out of the equation, it helps to reduce the possibility of mistakes.
