Leading the way in GIS field data collection software

GIS software serves as a powerful tool, capturing, storing, and interpreting geographic data. GIS technology bridges the gap between locations, boundaries, and intricate details within a geospatial framework. Yet, the question arises – what’s the next step? Enter Fulcrum, industry-leading field data collection software that gives context to the geospatial content, expanding the use case of GIS data.

Four approaches to creating location-aware apps

To do their jobs effectively, today’s field workforces need location-aware apps: apps that connect what’s happening — inspection data that’s being collected, or steps in a checklist that someone is checking off — with where it’s happening, or that provide users with maps to understand the location context of what they’re doing.

Notes from the field: Location-aware inspections made easy

Two experienced geospatial pros discuss the challenges and lessons learned over their GIS careers.

Since field inspections require sharp eyes, high-quality data collection, and location information, they’ve always required a complex stew of technologies to support them.

CEO and Co-Founder
It’s hard to overstate the significance of this increased efficiency. We’re seeing time savings of between two and five hours per day, per employee. The cost reduction associated with that time reduction is enormous.

Juston Iborg - A crew of two people can do it all at once using Fulcrum

Juston Iborg

Director of Business Development
Great Lakes Wellhead, Inc.
Rather than sending 100 people a year to do different inspections and tasks at the same site, a crew of two people can do it all at once using Fulcrum.

Before Fulcrum, two full-time employees plus a contractor were needed to perform 45 inspections a day. With Fulcrum, that rate increased to 60 inspections a day with only the two employees, eliminating the need (and expense) of an outside contractor.

Matt Marsh - 3 inspections, now 20 field ops

Matt Marsh

GIS Analyst
Santa Barbara County Fire Department
Before we were able to do three inspections a day and now we can do 20 inspections a day. A lot of that just comes from the simplification of the inspection form and the default auto-population. I think it really saved a lot of time for the inspectors out in the field.
