  • By having access to a centralised geographic information system (GIS), valuable context can be added to an organisation’s existing data assets which can be accessed by any mobile worker, including the field force.
  • Nearly all workers now have mobile devices now – even where mobile workers not kitted out with special, ruggedised field systems, they will have a business or personal smartphone, a tablet or a laptop – and so much value can be added to how these employees work.
  • Mobile users can use the cameras on their devices to add information – for example, insurance investigators can take photos of flood damage, with all the data being logged with the exact location in three dimensions.
