Trustees CR Monitoring App

land trust

property monitor

For the monitoring of conservation restrictions/easements by land trust staff and volunteers. Designed to meet Land Trust Alliance guidelines.

This app makes it easy to enter the details of a property visit, from who was contacted prior to the visit, to photographing and geotagging any issues regarding reserved rights or prohibited uses, to collecting the signature of the property monitor. It utilizes repeatable fields so that there is no limit on the entries a monitor can create per property, and classification sets so that the monitor can select quickly from lists of common issues. Quality control and speed of entry were large factors in the design process, so text entry is largely avoided and replaced with multiple/single choice fields whenever possible. Trustees staff are also able to import geo-referenced property data at the beginning of the monitoring season to further facilitate quick field entry. Selecting the property the monitor is visiting automatically loads the location, address, and property owner information into the form, so all the monitor needs to do is fill out what they found on their visit. [The Trustees of Reservations](http://www.thetrustees.org/), a [Land Trust Alliance](http://www.landtrustalliance.org/) nationally accredited land trust, is the largest private holder of conservation restrictions in the state of Massachusetts, and one of the oldest land conservation organizations in the country. With 400+ conservation restrictions (easements) to monitor annually, they needed a way of streamlining the property monitoring process. This app is the result of their work.

Traditionally, if a field engineer is allotted 8 hours to do a survey, they get 16 hours to write the report. Now report writing is almost taken from two-thirds to zero.

One of the big things you can’t really measure is buy-in from employees in the field. People that didn’t want to go away from pen and paper and the old way of doing things now come to us and have ideas for apps.

Easy to custom make data collection forms specific to my needs. Very flexible and I can add or adjust data collection information when I need it. Plus including meta data saves a lot of time.

I have used many programs for field asset inspection. Fulcrum has been the easiest to set up, use in the field, and update. The service provided by the Fulcrum team has been top-rate.

It is so easy to use. You don't have to be a GIS specialist or coder to set up the app. Just a regular person is able to set up their own app and use it.

Fulcrum is, without a doubt, the best thing I've done for my business in regards to cost saving and time efficiency. Support is very good and help, on the rare occasions it's required, is never far away.

Our field technicians are spending less and less time in the office. They spend it more on field tasks, rather than office tasks.
