Government Housing Agency Taps SYWARE, Inc.'s Programming-Free, Visual CE 9 Software for Windows Mobile and Pocket PC Devices for Housing Inspections
SYWARE Simplifies Operations and Improves Productivity - Wherever Inspectors Need to Work
CAMBRIDGE, MA, U.S.A. - February 14, 2005 - SYWARE, Inc., announced a major county government housing agency in Maryland has successfully implemented and used the company's Visual CE software to rapidly create, deploy and easy-to-use feature-rich database applications without programming on any Windows Mobile Pocket PC or Windows CE device - wherever they need to work. Before, inspectors navigated through sheets of paper for each unit inspection. Today, government housing inspectors simply click on electronic tables to complete reports in seconds to simplify their workloads. Municipalities use the Visual CE product line to easily transmit and track information regarding the status of operations in the field while reducing the amount of paperwork that is typically involved in the process. Housing office inspectors also use SYWARE on their Pocket PCs to simplify the data collection process and document information in the field. Information can be collected on the handheld and uploaded to the inspector's PC or downloaded from the PC to the inspector's handheld.
"Housing inspectors traditionally fill out pages of paperwork for each unit inspection, since this is a requirement of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development," said William Bogen, an IT Manager at a government housing agency in Maryland. "By combining the Pocket PC in conjunction with the power of SYWARE's Visual CE software, we can dramatically simplify operations and improve productivity by reducing the drudgery of paperwork people have to cope with on a daily basis. We have found that even our non-technical users could use SYWARE's product with ease," said Bogen. "These devices, coupled with SYWARE's software, definitely make life easier for housing inspectors, and this has enabled our department to ensure our legacy system is updated regularly. This is important, especially when the government comes in for an audit," Bogen added.
As a result, developers and non-technical users, in a wide variety of markets can use Visual CE 9 to mobilize information between the enterprise and the field to rapidly convert PC or paper-based processes into fully mobile applications 10x faster than other market alternatives. User-specific data can be downloaded, collected, displayed, modified and automatically synchronized.
"The Visual CE product meets the specialized needs of municipalities, including a wide variety of other market verticals, to provide seamless access to essential information on or offline, at any time or place," said Sy Danberg, President, SYWARE, Inc.
