Mobile Data Collection

 

The prevalence of roadside assets within a road network makes the job of tracking and maintaining them a tough task. No asset is dispensable, they all play a key part in traffic and pedestrian safety. Using paper or digital spreadsheets to keep track of the position and condition an agency’s vital assets can be time consuming and inefficient. Roadsoft Mobile provides an efficient and easy to learn solution. 

Developed for Android and iOS mobile devices (primarily tablets with some phone support), the Roadsoft Mobile application works in cooperation with Roadsoft for the desktop to improve the process of work orders, inspections, and maintenance of roadway assets. Roadsoft Mobile currently includes support for sign and culvert asset types with expansion to sidewalks and other asset types in the future. Our customers can now throw out cumbersome paper and excel processes and pickup Roadsoft Mobile, an economical solution to work order management with full mobility right in the palm of your hand.

 

Economical

Entering, printing and passing paper work orders back and forth between supervisors and maintenance workers takes valuable time and resources. Two of the greatest advantages that Roadsoft Mobile offers are its ease of use and the way it simplifies workflow, both significant economic features. Learning to use the application is an easy process for the many customers already familiar with Roadsoft programs, and voice-to-text features supports hands-free data entry. Maintenance personnel can respond quickly to any revisions to work orders or add critically needed work orders right from an asset location, removing any delay in communication.

Mobility

Roadsoft Mobile uses Google mapping and GPS coordinates from customer’s existing data to display the position of roadway assets without the need for an external GPS device. Roadsoft mobile provides maintenance crews added mobility in the field without having to move back and forth between the asset and a vehicle-based laptop or convert written material to a digital format later on, so they can remain focused on the work rather than the data entry.
