Tracer Mobile Workforce has further enhanced its e-forms module to now include the easy upload of documents and photos.

Available on all mobile phones, you can now complete your e-form and upload supporting information, in the form of a photo or document, and update your systems to a central database in real time.

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. Now, you're not only able to automate the completion and submission of forms process, but you can also add information to further support your data. This new feature is already being used by a prominent retail merchandising company and within the electronic device inspection environments with impressive results.

"Traditional forms are going digital, and we're committed to turning all our customers' paper-based forms into a digital format at no additional cost," comments Cobus van Graan, TracerMW CEO. This applies to field data reports, job cards, service reports, inspection reports, sales information and technical reports; TracerMW's system is able to replicate and automate any form that a company uses.

"Never again wait for a job card to return to the office or for the analytics reports because the forms have to be faxed, data recaptured and then formatted. Today's companies need to place greater emphasis on real-time data to enable better and more proactive decision-making and optimised workflows that eliminate unnecessary costs," concludes Van Graan.

Why TracerMW?

This truly mobile solution is built in Africa and for Africa. It doesn't require a smartphone, and it can function even in the most remote areas where GPRS technology is the only form of connection. It provides fully functional document management and storage, as well as 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.
