Washington, D.C., July 23, 2014—IDC predicts that by 2015, 37% of the workforce — approximately 1.3 billion workers — will be considered mobile. To help organizations truly harness the mobile workforce, unprecedented availability of geographic data, rise of cloud-based services and explosive growth of location-enabled devices, TerraGo, a pioneer of geospatial collaboration software, introduces TerraGo Edge, an open collaboration solution for mobile workflows that immediately syncs field data with headquarters and other mobile workers.
TerraGo Edge enables mobile workers and field crews to easily take notes, photos, assign tasks and share data in real-time. The easy-to-use app enables the enterprise to embrace the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) promise of improved productivity, ease of use and seamless networking.
With TerraGo Edge, organizations create intelligent, portable notebooks customized for their unique areas of interest and specialized workflows. Available with a tap from any user’s smartphone and tablet, TerraGo Edge notebooks contain all the forms, documents, maps and imagery needed by remote workers, securely delivering real-time data to and from users at the “edge of the enterprise.”
“TerraGo Edge makes it possible for mobile workers in any location to share geotagged observations on the devices they use every day,” said Ron Crean, Senior Director, Strategy & Business Development at IHS, a member of the TerraGo Edge beta program. “This improves the quality and velocity of data, helping our shared customers make better decisions faster.”
“Businesses want secure collaboration solutions that help them make better decisions faster, while employees want business apps that are as intuitive as the apps they use every day,” said Chris Broderick, CEO, TerraGo. “TerraGo Edge delivers on both fronts with a user experience that helps mobile workers instantly share information and collaborate – turning employees into sensors, observations into actions and field data into location intelligence.”
Organizations can start deploying custom mobile workforce apps today with a free trial of TerraGo Edge.
