Concerto mobile software updates offer exciting new functionality for FM teams and Project Managers
With Spring in sight, there has definitely been a spring in our step and it’s hard to believe the first quarter of 2015 is almost over.
Concerto are pleased to announce that our team of developers has been working hard on several new software updates – most noteworthy are the additions to the Concerto Mobile technology which will be of particular interest to Helpdesk operatives, facilities teams and also to project managers.
New ‘telemetry’ options allow the Concerto software to ‘pulse’ information from your mobile device to the Helpdesk desk. Helpdesk staff can now see the last time an operative synced their app and what time their app last checked for data. Each operative location can be displayed on a map along with their status; any operatives not checking in within an hour are highlighted in real time in red.
“This latest update takes our mobile capabilities to a new level for our users. The device goes online every minute and checks for new jobs and at the same time it stores its location allowing operatives to plot a mobile worker’s last location on a map. This along with the QR code scanning capabilities and all the other expected features makes for a comprehensive offering and great value for money.”
Steve De Rycke, Technical Director, Concerto
On the helpdesk app, new options allow users to
- Record time and material costs per job
- Record on site equipment
- Complete a pre and post work risk assessment
- Warnings, such as asbestos within the area appear.
With this update to the Concerto mobile software also comes a new project snagging app, which allows project managers to record construction project snags offline before uploading them to the main Concerto Project Management system. Projects managers can:
- Record location, type and priority of snag
- Take a picture
- Preload previous snagging sheets for an update visit.
“Thanks to better web technology and the advent of improved, higher power, low cost hardware, Concerto has a built in technological solution that offers a great mobile experience, and proven efficiency savings, for the end user. The whole Concerto enterprise software framework incorporates all of your mobile working licenses at no additional cost. This, alongside our optional provision of highly cost effective hardware, renders it cheaper than expected to implement across an organisation, with long-term gains such as single point of data entry, easy access to real life information on the move and the removal of admin functions to duplicate data that is captured on site compared to internally”.
Greg Davies, Operations Director, Concerto
The Concerto Mobile application is included in the software framework licenses at no additional cost. This, alongside the optional provision of highly cost effective hardware, renders it cheaper than expected to implement across an organisation, with long-term gains such as single point of data entry, easy access to real life information on the move and the removal of admin functions to duplicate data that is captured on site. The uses for this software are endless.
The Concerto Mobile application allows users of your buildings to capture FM help desk jobs on the move whilst operatives and contractors can interact with the mobile application to review new jobs and update the status of jobs they are working on.
