Chart new territory using advanced geospatial tools with Esri integration

Back in November when we announced our definitive Commercial Provider agreement with Esri to build on the Esri technology stack, we asked you to watch this space for updates. So, for those of you who’ve been watching (and even those who’ve maybe stepped away from the Fulcrum Focus to get a cup of coffee or something), we’ve got exciting new features and geospatial tools to share!

Esri-Fulcrum integration on mobile - Chart new territory using advanced geospatial tools with Esri integration

Get smart with improved location intelligence

Field teams no longer must rely on paper maps or a patchwork of digital mapping solutions. Now they can manage their field team processes, geographic context, and data collection using a single app on their handheld devices. You’ll also be able to use Esri-native lines and polygons in Fulcrum. This means that changes made by the manager in the office are shared immediately. They are also shared automatically with the field team. 

Eliminate gridlock

Previously, sending geospatial data to and from mobile devices was a lengthy process. It often caused delays as you waited for the data to upload and become ready for use. However, the integration of Fulcrum and Esri changes this dynamic. It facilitates two-way communication of maps and geodatabase information. This process now requires less effort and considerably less time. As a result, it cuts down on hours or even days in project timelines.

Better data, faster

Real-time, bi-directional data flow between Fulcrum and ArcGIS saves time and eliminates transcription errors. In addition, using Esri’s Feature Services and layers within Fulcrum helps to overcome information silos by communicating more high-quality location intelligence to and from the field.

We’re just getting started with our integration of Esri to make Fulcrum a more powerful, useful, and comprehensive platform than ever. While you’re checking out the exciting new geospatial tools, we’re already hard at work at what comes next. In the meantime, in the coming weeks, we’ll be sending out more information on how the integration features above play out in real-life scenarios.  

So stay tuned. We’ll be back soon with more of what makes the Fulcrum and Esri partnership a match made in GIS heaven. And in the meantime, below are some Fulcrum and Esri resources sharing what we’ve been up to – and what’s to come.

Ready to hear more? Join us on June 8 for a free webinar with the Fulcrum product team to see live demos, new features you can start using today, and an overview of the Esri integration vision. And in the meantime, check out the resources below to get up to speed on what’s new with the Fulcrum – Esri integration… and start to get excited about what’s new and what’s coming!
