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.

Faster Asset Lookups during Sort Trip Load and Wireless Lookup

Your operators need to get through their handheld actions as fast as possible and with accurate data.  We have made some changes to our TAM6 application to make sure it takes less time when looking up assets during

  • Sort Trip Load – known as “Picking” and used in preparation for Delivery.  This action is available to clients using our Proof of Delivery module.
  • Wireless Lookup – used to pull current info about an asset).  This action is available to any Core Tracking client.

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

 

iOS and Android Features –  Delivery Support for Not-Scanned Assets

TrackAbout is continuing to port features to our TA Mobile applications for iOS and Android products.  For this release, we now support Not-Scanned Assets for inclusion during the complete delivery process.  This means in addition to capturing information about tagged assets out to customers, you can also track non-tagged assets by product and quantity.

Users are led through screens to enter the Product and quantity of Not Scanned assets to be loaded or delivered.
