Field Data Collection Your Way, Custom Forms with ikeConfig Center
We've had ike's out in the field for several years now, and our customers are using them in a wide variety of applications, everything from utility pole audits, to vegetation management, asset management and security assessments. We often hear back from customers about how ikeGPS is saving them time and money, since data collection has been made far more efficient cost effective. In many cases, our customers want to go further, to add even more productivity with custom workflows that fit their field collection and reporting needs. We have listened. Until now this has required custom programming. Now we have ikeConfig Center™. With ikeConfig Center you can build your own custom workflows and install them on your ikeGPS without any programming skills.
Building Custom Workflows
ikeConfig Center is a free application that loads on any desktop PC and is designed specifically to integrate with your ikeGPS, connected to your PC with a USB cable. The software presents drag-and-drop menus allowing you to:
- From the left-hand menu, select any of the ikeTools available in your ikeGPS and drag it into the form building area on the right
- Create custom form fields, for example workflow titles, text descriptions, pull-down lists and radio buttons that help your crews easily enter relevant field data for each data collection record
- Create unqiue operation sequences with multiple ikeTools, custom form fields and outputs
- Specify data outputs, including spreadsheets, XML, and KML files for direct integration with Google Earth and other data visualization and analysis applications
- Save your custom workflow and upload it to your ikeGPS - ready to go to the field and begin collecting data
For the first time in the mobile GIS data collection industry, you can now take advantage of a single device for remote location and measurement with the flexibility to design your own workflows that make data collection easier and more productive than ever. This will save your field crews time and allow them to capture and analyze data faster and more accurately than ever before.
We like to listen to our customers because they help us to improve ikeGPS and make it fit their needs. We look forward to hearing from you as well.
