Most data collection apps are electronic versions of forms that just minic paper-based forms. That's hardly innovative is it?
Whilst the form-type apps may be OK for market research questionnaires, commercial data collection projects need a more sophisticated method of data collection.
Often you will want to collect data about assets of a building. The building will have multiple locations (floors & rooms), multiple building items (elements), and multiple attributes (costs, quantities, etc.) for each item.
Furthermore, the building items will need to be classified into groups for proper analysis, and quantitative cost data will need to be collected.
Traditional asset management systems, although very powerful, lack good mobile data collection tools.
However, data collected in a more structured way can be imported very easily into desktop asset management systems such as Concept Evolution, IBM Maximo, Tribal, Planon, etc.
This is why you need a data collection app dedicated to commercial asset data collection. Try it out yourself below.
