I'm sharing some software that may be useful to fellow asset managers for data collection and other purposes.
My colleague, Purna Bhandari and I, needed to capture and verify existing Parks asset data. There were limitations with using existing mobile laptop devices (cost, lack of integrated GPS, usability of software eg typing in excel in the field).
We stumbled across an add-on to google sheets called AppSheet. This add-on allows for creation of highly customisable forms which can be viewed on iOS and Android devices. The data is saved to google sheets and google drive. Dropbox and other providers are possible, however we didn't test this and Alphabet/Google bought the company recently so could be removed in the future.
Try our sample app - may be limited to 10 users.
Sample app from the AppSheet website
I haven't gone in to making it work as it's difficult to explain and a lot of it is on their website and is intuitive.
If there are any questions let me know. There is a lot to it but there are a lot applications of this program.
