US: CartoPac International has extended the CartoPac Software Suite to support the iOS operating system. Combined with existing Windows and Windows Mobile applications, the addition of iOS enables CartoPac to deliver advanced mobile functionality to a broad range of devices used for geospatial data collection.
“Companies struggle to find single mobile software that supports the diverse requirements and robust functionality needed for both asset inventory and inspection workflows,” said Glenn Vlass, CartoPac Vice President of Marketing and Product Management. “With the recent addition of mobile for iOS, our software gives organizations a single platform to author, publish, deploy and manage mobile solutions for their entire workforce.”
Since its introduction in 2002, the CartoPac Suite has been adopted by energy companies, natural resource agencies, municipalities, gas and electric utilities to improve the management of their assets. These organizations rely on the integrated suite of CartoPac applications to easily configure, deploy and distribute mobile solutions fully integrated within the Esri GIS environment.
The CartoPac Suite is the first mobile technology to bring this level of configuration and advanced functionality for consistent use across a full range of mobile devices. Another key feature is the ability to configure solutions that leverages data coming from both the GIS database and other enterprise databases, such as work order management systems.
CartoPac Software Suite also enables organizations to better manage and add value to the enormous volumes of data flowing into the office from field devices. CartoPac Workflow Manager, a module in the suite, supports configured structured processes for bringing field data back to the enterprise. CartoPac also supports both fully integrated on premise deployments and complete hosted deployments using CartoPac Core.
“Regardless of the field device, the captured or updated data will be complete, consistent and accurate,” said Vlass.
