CONTEXT: We are looking to develop an app that will allow site representatives to report back to our office staff about conditions, progress, issues, etc. on construction project sites. It would consist of a form that would be completed and then automatically uploaded in PDF and / or Excel format to our internal server.
FORM: The form would include a variety of input field types, including text fields, drop-down lists, and tables. Please see the attached file for a sample of the document that we are currently using. Some of our specific needs are:
• Customizability. The workers should be able to customize templated versions of the form for their projects. For example, the list of firms in the “Construction Activity” section (if you look at the attached sample documents) will not change throughout the duration of a given project. We would like our workers to be able to pre-load the document with these consistent fields.
• Internal filing to group together all reports completed in a given month
• Integration with the tablet’s camera, so that pictures can be taken and immediately included in the day’s report. They should be able to categorize these pictures by trade (electrical, HVAC, etc.) and the pictures should automatically have a time and date stamp. The workers should also be able to add comments to each picture.
• Automatic weather conditions reporting, which would populate the highs, lows, and general conditions for each day.
SUBMISSION: The tablets will be connected to our company’s internal server via a VPN. If possible, we would like the completed forms to be automatically uploaded and filed on the server as both PDF and Excel documents. If this is not possible, we would like to hear proposals for alternate submission methods.
DEVICES: Our staff use either Microsoft Surface tablets or iPads. The app will therefore need to work on both Windows 10 and iOS.
