Wikipedia describes a data collection system (DCS) as a computer application that facilitates the process of data collection, allowing specific, structured information to be gathered in a systematic fashion, subsequently enabling data analysis to be performed on the information.
Building surveying has unique requirements that go far beyond simple mobile data collection forms.
No longer are simple browser-based or iPad-based data collection tools good enough for surveying practices.
There is now much better mobile data collection software explicitly designed for surveying using modern Android devices.
At last there is flexible mobile surveying software for ALL built environment sectors. Suitable for housing & asset management organisations, such as surveying practices, housing associations, councils, building surveyors.
Surveyors and surveying practices need a wide range of survey templates covering different data collection situations. Furthermore, they need turnkey systems that can also be customised to suit their clients' requirements.
Surveyors need a software application for mobile devices that collects asset condition and facilities data out in the field.
PocketSurvey meets the complex and varied requirements of all surveying sectors, such as those listed below.
Our intuitive application can streamline your data collection process by using customisable survey forms and templates.
However, it goes far beyond simple forms. It can use external lookup data to drive all your menu options. You can easily build your own data collection app using your own schedules of rates.
It's so quick to learn and get familiar with, and all online training is free of charge.
Social housing associations need to undertake regular stock condition surveys to manage their cyclical capital investment plans.
Traditionally asset managers commission a data collection exercise every five years using surveying practices that collect data using paper and dictaphones!
Then the paper documents or handwritten notes would sit in a remote corner of an office and never be analysed - and never be proactively used to make sound future investment decisions.
Although housing associations use expensive housing management systems, those systems simply do not have good mobile data gathering software.
These inefficient working methods have been drastically improved by using the PocketSurvey mobile app, and the associated desktop data management and reporting software.
At last, you can collect data quickly and easily on-site, produce capital investment reports in seconds, and export well-structured data to your in-house housing management systems.
Turnkey mobile solutions enable building surveyors to carry out element-based repairs & maintenance surveys using electronic schedules of rate such as BCIS, SFG20, NSR, etc.
Photographic reports, pivot tables, and lifecycle charts provide the information you need to help make capital investment budgetary decisions.
You can choose from our comprehensive range of survey report types for commercial surveying, such as those shown below.
