Chooses SYWARE's Visual CE® Software and Handheld Computers
for New Factory Floor Data Collection System
DigiForm replaces paper filing systems with electronic forms
based on Visual CE database and forms builder software
MA (May 20, 2002)-For manufacturers, gathering data about the quality
and quantity of products being produced is of utmost importance,
both to the timely completion of orders and to the bottom-line profitability
of the company. But costly printed forms and data entry errors have
plagued the production line, resulting in higher costs and inaccurate
data. That's why DataMyte (http://www.datamyte.com)
has spent the last 37 years developing portable data collection
devices that accurately collect production data anywhere, any time.
newest device, the DataMyte DigiForm, takes industrial data collection
to a new level by combining a ruggedized pen tablet computer with
Visual CE database
and forms builder software. Now, plant floor personnel can collect
data from anywhere on the plant floor directly into electronic forms.
customers need to collect and send data without leaving their work
area," said Mike McCalley, Marketing Services Manager at DataMyte.
"The handheld computer gives us a way to get wireless communication
onto the plant floor. Visual
CE lets operators create a wide variety of custom forms in just
minutes and synchronize the data that's collected directly to a
database to eliminate entry errors. It's a great, go-anywhere combination."
Database & Forms Builder Software
DataMyte now includes SYWARE's Visual
CE software with each DataMyte DigiForm data collection device.
Visual CE is a full
color, relational database and forms builder program. It provides
an intuitive, drag-and-drop interface that allows operators to quickly
create forms and databases without coding. Forms can be designed
and maintained either on the DataMyte DigiForm device or on a desktop
computer. In addition, both forms and databases can be run on the
handheld device or the desktop. Once the application is developed,
records can be easily beamed from one handheld device to another.
Other features include pop-up word lists, the ability to create
pre-defined data filters, robust font selection, multi-select dropdowns,
and calculations on string data. A macro programming capability
allows for the easy creation of multi-step sequences.
