Touchscreen software that is especially easy to use in the field would record real-time data from sensors and mathematically process it into concise engineering reports and graphs. The data is later synchronized to the client’s office. The reports, described as the “Rolls Royce of the industry”, would differentiate the client and assist in winning new contracts and increasing word of mouth referrals.

We can handle real-time sensor data capture and reporting.
