 The ImageMap concept originated when I walked into a large office and was confronted with row upon row of desks, as is the case with many offices around the world. I thought wouldn't it be great if one had a map within ones phone that would allow one to itemise all the desks and the peaple that sat at that desk. This is how the concept of ImageMap began.

 

After working on this idea the concept morphed into a more generalized concept of intergrating two dimensional images with text and icons. This included the idea of offices and desks, the floor plan being the image and the individuals being detailed with text.

 

Assistence in creating your own office version is provided within the user documentation together with setting up the example graphics display and data load file.

CandJ is a concept app. It was developed to explore the concept of drawing wires on top of a graphics canvas. It came about after working at an aircraft company where electrical cabinets were produced. It demonstrates how the current method of connecting the wires could be improved upon by having an Android tablet and displaying the wiring using the tablet. It would replace the current process of having pages of reports allowing the skilled production workers to access the required information in less time. The result would be a process that would be more efficient and less prone to error.

 

CandJ comes pre-loaded with example data so that you can immediate see the graphical interface.

AssetCheck is also an Android App. Like InventoryCount it is designed for use in medium to large organisations. It is aimed at organisations where physical checks of assets to maintain their quality and reliability is a requirement. It allows the import of assets through flat csv files allowing a user to utilise an android based smart phone or tablet. After physical inspection has been carried out it allows the export of the updated data through a flat csv file and hence back to the asset database.

 

AssetCheck can be found on the Google Play web site but can also be downloaded here.
