Field Data Collection App for when You Don’t Have Internet Access

With improvements in technologies carrying out field data processing, there has been an increasing adoption of technology-driven data collection using apps over paper forms. Modern software solutions have been able to replace paper-based forms with digital forms which are accessible via smartphone app in any working conditions.

Industries like Healthcare, construction, maintenance have already observed a drastic increase in use, efficiency, response rates, feedback, and accuracy of data collection through data capture apps. These data collection apps enable the respective field operators to collect the data faster as well as make constant improvements if need be.

However, majority of these apps need a constant internet connection to carry out work, they fail to perform in remote areas and areas with less connectivity. This impacts the efficacy of your business operations resulting in loss of valuable man-hours and failure to collect critical work-related data.

According to The World in 2011 ICT Facts and Figures, “90% of the world’s population lived in areas with 2G coverage, while 45% lived in areas with 2G and 3G coverage.” And since 2017, more than 90% of the world’s population has access to at least 2G internet connectivity. But still, none of these figures tell you about the real-life struggles related to field work such as data inconsistency and incompleteness, scalability, timeliness, and security–especially in remote areas.

To counter this glitch, myGeoTracking has developed a solution that enables the field data collection to take place even in the absence of internet. myGeoTracking is a cloud-based mobile data collection app helps you capture, store and view your captured data without requiring access to internet.

Collect data without internet (Remote Areas / Poor Network)

myGeoTracking app enables you to collect field data in the form of QR, forms, notes, pictures and signatures, safe & smooth even in the absence of network. This feature not only helps you gather data in low-connectivity remote areas but also keeps it safely stored.

Offline Data Collection- Save now, Sync later

Attachments you collect on the field through the app will be saved and then sent to the system when an internet connection is established. The app can run offline and will keep storing the data collected in local memory and push it to servers when connectivity is restored.

Share data with others in real time

Once the connectivity is restored and the data is pushed to servers, it can be accessed by other members of your team to take further action as necessary. This helps save a lot of time and makes workflow seamless between different teams of the same organization.

No coding or servers needed

Build, customize and deploy your mobile forms within minutes without the need of a server or coding proficiency.
