Tracer Mobile Workforce launches advanced Image Gallery
Tracer Mobile Workforce (TracerMW), the leading mobile workforce platform in Africa, has launched advanced image management features to enhance its e-forms module. In addition to being able to complete an e-form online and upload and distribute any supporting image and document files, the new photo gallery module allows users to organise, edit and share files with other people in their network in real-time.
"Field inspections are digital and those companies that have thrown out their ineffective paper trails and antiquated methods of capturing data from the field are amazed by the results they're seeing," comments Cobus van Graan, TracerMW CEO, "Merchandisers have radically improved the quality and management of their stock at all locations. The supply chain process is optimised and efficient as a result of the real time reporting, and companies with mobile workforces are better managing productivity and performance levels of their staff and contractors.
"It's one thing having to read through a lengthy report provided by a field technician or agent, it's a completely different experience when you get the see what the agent is seeing. And to do this in an organised and optimised way, it's the new way to ensuring greater productivity. Speed, accuracy and responsiveness are what TracerMW's workplace solutions guarantee."
Although the Image Gallery module has applications for multiple industries, TracerMW's retail clients have already benefited. Addressing a dire need in the retail merchandising environment where large amounts of images are captured at inspection points and uploaded as part of inspection sheets into the TracerMW system. Where previously these images were randomly saved, the new solution will sort, file and check the images seamlessly and in rea-ltime.
This truly mobile solution is built in Africa and for Africa. It works on both feature- and smartphones and functions well even in the most remote areas where GPRS technology is the only form of connection available. It offers fully functional document management and storage and the ability to track every task in the system with detailed reporting as required. And with data housed in the cloud and updated in real-time you are assured of data security and privacy at all times in the event of devices being lost or stolen or if staff leave the company. There is no additional hardware required, it can integrate with your existing systems and is available based on modules of functionality priced for the local market.
"Feature rich mobile devices create efficiencies in business processes that turn mobile workers into productive change agents for any company that's willing to embrace technology. TracerMW enables you to automate the completion and submission of forms and add information to further support your data," concludes Van Graan.
