The Smartphone as a Tool
RADICAL CHANGE IN THE SURVEYING PROCEDURE: FOR TWO YEARS NOW, BEW HAS BEEN CAPTURING HOUSE CONNECTIONS WITH THE NAVA APP – TO THE DELIGHT OF EVERYONE INVOLVED.
“YOU MAKE A LOT OF DECISIONS IN YOUR WORKING LIFE.
WITH NAVA WE WERE SPOT ON!”
USER OF THE FIRST HOUR
At the kick-off event, all the key divisions of the company were represented, from the network documentation to the work preparation, foremen, construction accounting and management. Initial doubts as to whether a smartphone could replace the professional surveying equipment were quickly dispelled – both among the responsible and the field engineers on site.
HIGH ACCEPTANCE BY THE FIELD ENGINEERS
ACCURACY OF THE MEASUREMENTS
THE QUANTITY MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
“THE APP HAS WORKED WELL FROM THE START AND HAS BEEN CONTINUOUSLY DEVELOPED!”
Digital all the way to the GIS
In the GIS, BEW uses a tool for house connection construction with which all captured components are captured in the shortest possible time. It is also helpful that the field service already has the possibility of visual control. The field engineers directly see on site in the detail map whether the house connection object in the sketch is correctly connected to the supply line. As a result, the quality of the delivered sketches is significantly higher than before.
Conclusion and outlook
“The app has worked well from the start and has been continuously developed. In the future, we also want to make greater use of NAVA‘s form function to capture additional information about the house connection, such as pressure tests.“ says Volker Schmitz, and he sums it up: „You make a lot of decisions in your working life. With NAVA we were spot on and the app has already solved a lot of our problems.“
