PlansAnywhere Improves How You Access Your City’s Built Environment Information
When city officials, department employees, and other stakeholders need access to built information, more often than not, they need it right away. But, in a world of paper documents and complicated filing systems, accessing that built information is rarely that simple or immediate. At Avolve, we believe you should be able to access what you need, when you need it, as you need it. For this reason, we created PlansAnywhere which enables field access to view all key site information, drawings, documents and genealogy related to a building or structure by a geo-location. With the ability to access information in an efficient way, your inspectors will be able to do much more in a day which improves overall community safety.
PlansAnywhere is the epitome of efficiency, convenience and accuracy – providing departments and individuals with permission and appropriate credentials with access to information about the community built environment through a mobile solution that uses a location-based data model or “site” to organize information efficiently, process documentation and make informed decisions. How you access built information has been slow and inefficient in the past, relying on archaic forms of data storage and dissemination, but with PlansAnywhere, accessing built information is dramatically improved. Building and structure site information is accessible by desktop or iPad devices. Inspectors are able to capture photos using an iPad for site review and code enforcement. One might wonder what would happen should internet access not be possible but PlansAnywhere provides offline usability as well with the ability to select multiple files for offline access on a mobile device. All work is synced once internet connection is reestablished. While in the field, or anywhere, inspectors can find and add site information that is customized for their work process which improves efficiency.
PlansAnywhere improves access to built environment information by leveraging the power of the Salesforce 1 Platform, secure cloud storage, open data models and delivery technologies to enable field-to-office communication and collaboration to all built environment stakeholders. Rather than more traditional and complicated ways of storing and accessing plans and documents, PlansAnywhere provides simple access to plans and documents, as well as data and media on mobile devices (iOS and browsers). And, with the ability to work both online and offline (with sync upon re-connect) it is working for you at all times, whenever you need it. Further, PlansAnywhere keeps a detailed site timelinee that keeps track of site data and activity history/genealogy so that inspectors and other personnel get the most accurate information possible which helps improve community safety. Finally, PlansAnywhere integrates with multiple data systems including GIS (Google Maps). Construction Management, Security, Data Sensor, Permitting, Inspections and First Response. For communities looking for the most detailed and accurate information, right at their fingertips at the moment they need it, as well as the ability to make updates and changes in the field, PlansAnywhere is the ideal solution.
