Flowfinity Customers Integrate GIS Mapping Software with Mobile Data Collection Apps
Engineering and field service organizations are integrating Flowfinity data capture and workflow apps with geographic information systems to increase operations efficiency
VANCOUVER, BC, Sept 17, 2014 - Flowfinity Wireless Inc., a proven provider of enterprise mobile apps, today announced that an increasing number of its customers in engineering and technical field services are successfully integrating Flowfinity with geographic information systems (GIS).
The systems complement each other for organizations that have both mapping and mobile workflow or data collection requirements. While GIS software provides a spatial reference for specific area grids or assets locations, Flowfinity enables the user to collect or look-up data about that area or asset, access help or documentation, and follow customizable workflows on mobile devices.
One customer, the City of Cincinnati's Wastewater Collection Division, uses Flowfinity to guide field service technicians through complex jobs, and enables them to connect to maps of assets in their GIS system from Flowfinity apps on their mobile devices.
"We set up workflows in Flowfinity that integrate with ERSI's ArcGIS software, so that we can display specific items on maps that are only relevant to that point in the workflow," said Mike Pittinger, Superintendent, Wastewater Collection Division in Cincinnati. "What set Flowfinity apart was that it gives the business user the power to quickly create apps with deep functionality such as custom workflows and flexible data capture features without any programming."
"We have a number of clients that use GIS software, and have requirements for mobile workflows and data collection in the field," said Larry Wilson, VP of Sales and Marketing, Flowfinity. "Users can take advantage of our intuitive and customizable front end user interface, and because Flowfinity mobile apps are database-driven, remain flexible with back end integration options."
