BigChange Apps has chosen the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active as the hardware platform of choice for its JobWatch service management app due to of the tablets’ ability to withstand the knocks and drops they are likely to experience in the hands
of field workers.
One business to benefit from this partnership is Impra Gas, the plumbing company set up by The Apprentice winner Joseph Valente. It is using the JobWatch software and app as an efficient alternative to manual planning and paperwork.
JobWatch software manages and schedules bookings, automatically syncing with the associated app on service technicians’ tablets so that they have job instructions and health and safety and compliance instructions at their fingertips. It also improves customer service by providing clients with live updates of an engineer’s estimated time of arrival.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active has an IP67 rating for dust and waterproofing; an in-built stylus, which enables it to be used even when field workers are wearing gloves; and an HD camera that can be used to take photos for site surveys or proof of work.
