Data Gathering SolutionTechnologies
About The ClientOur client is an award-winning mobile data capture service provider that enables remote employees to capture essential business data on easy to create business forms. Compatible with both Android and iOS, the app offers a more accurate, compliant and efficient alternative to paper forms with information captured and shared in real-time. With the form securely stored on a cloud, information can be accessed by and shared with the relevant authorised personnel who have access to the cloud.
The ChallengeThe challenge of editing existing records on the web interface and app posed a problem for users. Once a form was submitted by an employee, there was no functionality to ’rewind’ and edit the form, it was an all or nothing action. The process to change a submitted form was to delete it and start again. 2 options were considered to overcome the challenge:
- Add an update function on the web interface using .Net dependent code and add an update function in the Android/iOS app using the native app code.
- Use Angular functionality which will target multiple platforms simultaneously.
