Jacksonville, Florida February 2, 2007- Cingular business customers can build and deploy their own data collection forms using Cingular’s Windows® Mobile 5.0 devices. The Cingular-certified software, created by GeoAge Inc., eliminates the need for paper forms and dramatically improves the quality and accuracy of data collected in the field.
The Field Adapted Survey Toolkit (FAST) software allows users to customize data collection forms to their specific needs. Employing "drag and drop" tools, customers build their own forms, which can be used to collect data with a minimum of typing. Information can then be shared among mobile devices in a way that ensures consistent and legible data entry and eliminates errors associated with re-keying.
"The ability to collect and transmit data using digital forms eliminates errors and inefficiency associated with traditional paperwork," said Jeff Arnold, President of GeoAge, Inc. "The GeoAge software is a terrific productivity enhancing tool for Cingular enterprise customers."
GeoAge maintains an extensive library of mobile data collection templates for various industries, including those used for opinion surveys, sales tracking, emergency management, facility management, and more.
FAST also integrates Global Positioning System (GPS) information and digital photographs within a form. This allows data to be instantly mapped on a desktop or over the Web.
Michael Gabelman, Regional Manager for the Southeast says "GeoAge’s FAST software is a tremendous ROI tool that increases the productivity of your employees in the field, lowers labor costs for re-keying data and improves the quality and accuracy of your data collection.” Gabelman also said "It enables organizations to know what is happening and where it is happening and then to react quickly and effectively in the field."
GeoAge’s Field Adapted Survey Toolkit (FAST) software allows rapid deployment of mobile forms for data collection and reporting. Forms can be deployed on Window’s PDAs or mobile computers. FAST provides a number of industry ready forms for emergency management, environmental and engineering, field inspection, public health and safety, field force automation and asset tracking. The form creation capability is excellent for university research and opinion marketing studies. GeoAge is a Microsoft Certified Partner with a specialization in Mobility Solutions.
