STONEHOUSE, England - July 30, 2014 - PRLog -- Toplevel (http://toplev.com/index.html) has launched the Mobile Data Collection module for the Outreach case management engine, a mobile document solution for use in the field. The new module enables structured, guided data collection over any mobile device, ensuring sensitive data can be entered at any location. In environments where connectivity is poor or non-existent, Mobile Data Collection offers an ‘always-on’ functionality, sending data securely upon reconnection to a 3G, 4G or WiFi network. Outreach Mobile Data Collection can be used to complete a variety of formal documents such as application forms, reports, audits and assessments, and is being piloted by the Legal Aid Agency, an executive agency of the Ministry of Justice, who are collecting criminal legal aid applications from solicitors.   Data is collected at court, then sent to the Outreach platform for processing. Solicitors are then able to monitor and track the progress of the application via the Legal Aid portal.

Mobile Data Collection is designed for any lengthy data entry, making it suitable for form-filling tasks across various sectors. In addition to applications, the solution also lends itself to the collection of evidence making it the ideal way to record the results of on-site inspections, such as those undertaken for health and safety compliance purposes, or to obtain witness statements at the scene of a crime. Mobile Data Collection guides the user so it can also be used for self-certification processes such as annual returns, or to carry out assessments or record audits.

Outreach Mobile Data Collection can be taken standalone, enabling public sector organisations to benefit from a purely mobilised data entry solution, or in concert with the complete Outreach suite, to enhance existing processing functionality by extending the reach of the organisation to any location. Benefits of the Mobile Data Collection module include:

·      Platform agnostic: Supports any mobile O/S enabling data to be collected, recorded and transmitted over smartphones, tablets and laptops

·      Always-on connectivity:Over WiFi, 3G, and 4G networks. When working offline, users can synchronise data on reconnection

·      Secure access and transmission: Data in transit is protected using up to 256-bit AES encryption. Data synchronisation is managed by the Outreach Identity Manager which can be configured to securely authenticate users

·      Built-for-purpose: Robust software design eradicates the problems associated with mobile app management such as repurposing content over multiple mobile user interfaces, execution of multiple updates etc

·      Futureproof technology: cross-platform capability ensures compatibility with future mobile devices and makes the solution BYOD-friendly, conferring additional cost savings

“Demand for mobilised data capture has increased but the solutions needed to meet demand have not kept pace. Solutions are piecemeal and have been predominantly mobile applications, offering limited data entry, scalability and high associated management costs. In contrast, Outreach Mobile Data Collection is a versatile documentation solution based upon a tried and tested processing platform. Capable of transmitting information at the earliest opportunity and presenting it in open standard document / file formats, the solution eliminates recording errors and speeds up the decision-making process. Mobile Data Collection has the power to free-up the public sector, enabling data to be captured immediately, at source, and to be processed expeditiously.”

Mobile Data Collection is the latest addition to the Outreach case management engine which also offers Responsive Design; a function which enables web views and forms to be dynamically resized and subtly altered to suit the small screen. Both services are testament to Toplevel’s commitment to provide mobile agnostic support to public sector organisations striving to meet the inclusivity needs of Government.
