DataGatherer Description

Made by: Maxiel

Data Gatherer is completely user configurable data collection software (no software developer experience required), allowing a mobile workforce to collect data using their Windows Mobile 5.0 or later devices and to return that data to a central location. Data Gatherer is made up of two components, the desktop application and the mobile application.

The desktop application is used to generate template forms and to manage the data. From these templates jobs can be created and completed in the desktop environment. Alternatively the jobs can be uploaded (via ActiveSync) to the Windows Mobile device, where the Windows Mobile operator can complete the data entry for the job, once complete the data can be uploaded back to the desktop environment via ActiveSync. If a template is uploaded to the Windows Mobile device then the Windows Mobile user will be able to generate their own jobs from those templates.

The desktop can store the data in any of Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access or Microsoft SQL Compact databases.

Type of questions supported by the software are: GPS data collection, Signature Collection, Pictures, Drop Down Lists, Free Text, Checkboxes, Dependencies (questions only appearing when specified Drop Down Lists have certain values).
