Extreme Makeover – TrackAbout Edition

By now you may have heard TrackAbout is getting ready to go through a major facelift. For the past two months, TrackAbout has been working hard on refreshing our web application user interface.

If you are a TrackAbout administrator and did not receive the TrackAbout Facelift email, please contact the Support Team and ask for the mailer.

The way the website works will stay the same. The navigation is the same and the functions of most pages will stay the same. The changes are mostly stylistic to give the site a fresher, more up to date look and feel.

If you have questions about how you can start using any of these new features please reach out to our Support team at support@trackabout.com.

Collision Resolution – More information about merged assets

When a new asset is created that TrackAbout thinks may already exist in the system, we create what’s called a Collision.  When resolving collisions, the user has the opportunity to merge the new “colliding” asset with the existing one.  Once complete, the result is one merged asset.

We now provide better information on the website, displayed on the Asset History page, to make the merged information very clear to viewers.

Actions that have been merged into an asset’s history will appear in italics and display a (1) superscript.

MergedAssets

This enhancement is available to all TrackAbout Core Tracking subscribers.

NOTE: We are changing the naming convention for Release Notes, therefore, you will not see a “February 2016 Release Notes” blog post.  Release Notes will now be named for the month in which the features are available to customers rather than for the development period.

iOS and Android – GPS Capture!

TrackAbout is excited to announce the support for GPS capture on iOS and Android and the display of assets and transactions on a map in the TrackAbout website.

For each asset scanned, the app will attempt to capture the geolocation. The accuracy of the geographic coordinates will vary based on several factors, such as device capabilities and what networks are available (GPS, cellular, and WiFi).

If a geolocation was captured for a given record, the user will have an option to view a map when reviewing the record of the action (such as a Delivery) or in an individual asset’s details.

Features and Updates

Beeps and Vibrations – Device feedback  

Operators are sometimes scanning larges numbers of assets in the course of their day and need to get through their processes as quickly as possible.  For some handheld devices, TrackAbout provides audible and haptic (vibration) feedback when scanning so that operators can receive messages without having to take time to look at the screen after each scan.

For instance, if an asset if scanned and the system successfully recognizes the barcodes, a beep will sound.  If the asset barcode is not recognized or there is an error during scanning, the handheld will emit a different kind of sound, vibrate and flash red (if applicable, by device).

TrackAbout’s beeps and vibrations are available to all scanning clients, but are only fully supported on some handheld devices.  Please contact our Support team if you are interested in this feature.

Features and Updates

Maintenance Tracking – Increased Support for Dynamic Forms

TrackAbout’s mobile apps allow clients to capture information about maintenance performed on their assets.  Painting, inspections, cleaning, re-valving… you name it and our clients are capturing it.  Maintenance tracking has become so popular our clients need the application to take operators through more forms and faster.

This month we’ve increased support for larger numbers of maintenance dynamic forms to load more quickly on handheld devices.  Get your assets through service quicker to get them back out into active inventory.

Read our Trackabout Wiki about Maintenance and Dynamic Forms for more information.

This enhancement is automatically available to clients using Core Tracking with Maintenance Dynamic Forms on our TAM6 application.  If you are not yet using TAM6, (or are not sure!), feel free to contact our TrackAbout Support team to get you set up.
