Leading global provider of mobile field force automation, Retriever Communications
introduces a new mobile field form solution designed to streamline remote data collection processes.
Retriever Sniffing, the new mobile field form solution streamlines the data collection processes for any field activity including quality audits, safety inspections and asset condition inspections.
Featuring new FormBuilder for iPad for easy form creation in the field, Retriever Sniffing is an off-the-shelf solution delivered in the cloud to enable companies to build and deploy forms fast, schedule work to the field, capture data electronically with workflow, integrate to corporate systems and run business intelligence (BI) reports to analyse the results.
FormBuilder is a core component of Retriever Sniffing now available on Apple’s iPad, and lets users design electronic forms and deploy them into the system. Its drag and drop functionality enables businesses to convert existing Word or Excel documents, or design completely new forms to replace paper in the field.
Key functionalities in each form include interactive questions and answers, signature panels and mandatory and conditional fields, all working within existing workflows. The intuitive creator allows companies to develop new forms for field workers instantly.
Mary Brittain-White, CEO of Retriever Communications explains that field workers are usually forced to use paper when recording important data points, leaving a lot of room for human error in the collection process, which can impact the reporting and analysis of that data.
Retriever Communications’ Sniffing product eliminates that obstacle for companies by digitising field forms, assisting businesses with employees in the field to improve the efficiency and accuracy of data collection.
Retriever Sniffing works across iOS, Android and Windows operating systems, ensuring companies can use current products and workflows when completing work away from the office. The Retriever product portfolio includes field service management tools, dispatch and schedule services, mobile time sheets and field asset management products. The company’s RADE3 (Retriever Application Development Environment) allows businesses to create and deploy device-agnostic native applications to iOS, Android and Windows Mobile.
