Market Leading Mobile Surveying Software & Android App

This is a brief history of PocketSurvey, and how we became the market leading mobile surveying software & inspection app over 3 decades!

Try the longest established mobile surveying app yourself


The 1990 Decade

Or technical director Martyn, wrote the very first mobile app for Psion handheld devices

Even back in the old days, we sold a very powerful survey designer with which you could create your own mobile surveys

Most surveying practices would export their data to a database & produce their own reports

However, the Psion handhelds were just black & white, and had no touch screen!


The 2000 Decade

We developed the very first mobile app for Microsoft Windows PDAs

Great. Now with PDAs, we had touch screens, albeit with a stylus, but it was a step forward

We found that surveyors & surveying organisations wanted more than just mobile data collection

So we produced a database & reporting system that was flexible enough to work with any data collection survey

And even before the advent of the Cloud, we were the only company offering data transfer via the Internet


The 2010 Decade

We were the very first company to produce a mobile surveying app for Android

We built on our previous successes & vast experience in the built environment

Based on customer feedback, we produced a wide range of ready-to-go survey templates

We introduced market leading features such as lifecycle plans, statistical data validation, & scenario planning


Powerful Surveying Methodology

Throughout these years we have developed very powerful methods for implementing residential & commercial building surveys

Our unique approach allows us to create custom surveys for you, super fast

But also, you can customise our off-the-shelf surveys yourself, with our easy-to-use survey template editor
