Garbage in, Data out?
KwikReports employs a data maintenance technique to manage the vast amount of client and site data that comes with almost every industry today. Inevitably, when client or site data is entered, errors or omissions may occur. For instance, an incorrect email submitted by a client could cause a delay in receiving their reports. When a technician notices and makes a correction or an addition, during report processing the server will catch these changes and update them throughout the account. This creates many contributors to database updates, including technicians making changes onsite without a data connection.


Unplugged
Working without a data connection
One tip to selecting a mobile app is assessing the environment you must collect data in. If you know you will have a full constant connection then a web based app is fine, but losing connection even for short periods of time can really throw a wrench in the works. If this is the case, your app must be able to collect all aspects of your report data for multiple reports and prepare them for delivery with no connection. This would include creating last minute orders on the fly and recalling past reports with or without a bar code.

We have updated our Android Fire Sprinkler Inspection Software
There are 2 changes in this update

1. Report Condensing. We have just added functionality which gives your firm the option to remove the page breaks before each system in your reports. This was requested by our users who produce smaller reports. It also requires less printing for those using the mobile printers to leave paper copies on site. This option is located in your "Edit Company Profile" section within your KwikReports Online Account.


2. Updates with orders in the que. The automatic update will now be available with orders downloading simultaneously. Your your orders will continue to download while making the update options dialog box available.




To activate the update dialog box, inspectors simply tap the "Download" blue arrow in the orders section after downloading their orders. After install the version number listed in the help section should be 5.5.14

In the event there is not enough data to print one or the other curve  a notice will be shown in the online reports forms indicting the missing data for each curve.

We have also increased the processing speed for report compiling.

We have just added functionality which now lets you put the mobile device into audit mode. In this mode you may use the app and server to:
  • Have sales use the app to collect data of a system for estimation purposes.
  • Collect data during an inspection that is not part of the inspection but will be in the future.
There is no cost to you to collect and transfer non-report data. Another feature added is the inspector no longer needs to review the inspection notes to identify reports requested in an order. Now all the icons will be grayed out for the exception of the reports ordered which will be in color. The grayed out icons are accessible and if the inspector records information in these sections but does not select the option to include it in that report, the icon will still be grayed out but will now include a green check mark indicating there is data in that system.


After collecting your audit or non report items your android device can now deliver that data to your office. There is no cost to your company for doing this as you are not creating a report.

Another feature we have added is that you can now have multiple buildings at one address. Your orders are now separated with the order number.

By request we have added bar code capability to your mobile solution.
Now aside from the search function in past reports you may now simply scan a bar code to pull up a specific report.


For example. When doing a report either for the first time or a re-inspect, in the "Orders" section you can adhere a bar code sticker in a "Home" location for that inspection. Then scan and apply its numerical code to that inspection.


Once you return to that location go to "Past Reports  and select the scanner icon. Scan the bar code you placed before and KwikReports will pull up that inspection in the the drop down list.


ALSO
KwikReports will now automatically notify inspectors of an available update.  Two options will be given 'Update' or 'Later'. If 'Update' is selected, the KwikReports app will go through the process automatically requiring only 3 'Permission' taps.

We have added a 'Pump Curve Information Audit'. Web interface will now notify account administrator if there is missing data in the Pump Section that will prevent the plotting of the Pump Curve graph. If you get this notification you may add the missing values and update the report or have the inspector add it on the mobile device and resubmit. Once all the information is in place the graph will be automatically produced in the report PDF file above the flowchart readings.
