Managing field operations can be a pretty daunting task. Not only do you have to manage workers in the field, coordinate schedules, keep track of equipment, and respond to unplanned events, you also need to maintain level of service commitments and do so in compliance with health and safety regulations.
Organizations are moving away from traditional paper and pen approaches and embracing apps deployed to their smartphones and tablets. Esri provides a suite of apps designed for field operations:
- Collector and Survey123 to complete data capture and asset inspection workflows.
- Workforce to plan and coordinate work activities.
- Navigator to get to job sites in the most efficient way.
- Tracker to record and share worker locations to improve operational awareness
