Asset and Mapping Enhancements

The integrated Asset Tracker and Mapping modules provide a powerful tool for geolocating your city’s stationary assets. Not only can you see asset icons on a map, but you can now edit asset attributes and add new assets right from the map view.

Improved Push Notifications for Work Orders

Push notifications have been a welcome addition to the Work Orders module. Now they are more reliable than ever. Work orders are automatically pushed to your iPhone, Android phone, or Internet-connected tablet as soon as they are assigned to you.

Full Editing of Inspection Records

When the Approval feature is enabled in the Parks, Sportfields, Facilities, or Fire modules, you have the ability to edit all questions in your inspection records. There are no restrictions, so you can update text and change the answers as needed. Once you approve the inspection, it can no longer be edited, giving you rock-solid documentation.
