We get a lot of questions regarding how the data is stored in Inspections for Dynamics 365. This blog post will answer all those questions – and more!
Let’s start with the basics
Generally, Resco Inspections is represented by 4 entities: Questionnaire, Question Group, Question, and as of recently, Questionnaire Folder. All Resco Inspections data is stored in these four entities. There is no additional system, database, or middleware involved.
The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the biggest challenges we have faced in the modern era. Governments are now starting to carefully consider lifting some of the restrictions and lockdowns, but the coronavirus is probably going to stay around for some time. As scientists and health experts point out – until the vaccine comes, we will likely have to adapt to new conditions. This “new standard” will also impact the enterprise, and it won’t be just a short term change. So, how can mobility and, more specifically, Resco technology help you to overcome these unparalleled times?
The Spring Update 2020 of Resco Inspections comes with a lot of usability improvements and simplified solutions that are real time-savers. Let’s take a look at some of the key highlights of this update:
No technical skills needed to create questionnaire templates
You need to create questionnaire templates, but feel like it requires way more technical knowledge and skills than you possess? With the improvedQuestionnaire Designerthis isn’t a problem anymore.We made the Designer moresuitable for business users, so they can use it justas smoothly as those with a technical background.
One of the biggest Resco releases to date is coming with a ton of valuable features. Improvements in the Inspections and Resco Platform solutions bring new opportunities to drive your business growth. And it doesn’t stop there. The Spring Update also brings enhancements to innovative fields of augmented reality and wearables utilization.
With newly supported AR features on iPhones and iPads, you can now easily improve reporting, team collaboration, or customer service by visualizing important data in the work field. Besides that, the new release further extends the flexibility of your team by improving questionnaires on smartwatches.
Let’s dive deeper into the benefits that you can harness with these innovations coming in Resco Spring Update.
Apple unveiled a new iPad Pro just a few days ago and it may have a lot to do with the future of augmented reality in enterprise. We say that because the hallmark of the device is the new LiDAR Scanner. Located within the backside camera bump, it precisely measures the distance of viewed objects and provides unique AR functionality to the new iPad. What this technology means for enterprises and how Resco thinks about the newest Apple innovation?
Voice technology is growing exponentially. Voice assistants, like Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri are so widely used now that they became basic components of many households and businesses. This technology is changing customer behavior as people use it to perform all kinds of daily tasks – from turning on the air conditioning, searching for a song or TV show, creating shopping lists and beyond. Already in 2018, the sales of voice-enabled devices reached 1 billion.
But consumers are not the only ones who can benefit from voice control technology, as it offers countless benefits in business use as well.
Questionnaire Designer is a web application that runs in a web browser. It is one of the main components of Resco Inspections that allows users to build questionnaires in a data-driven user interface. In today’s blog post we are going to introduce two of its novel features, Versioning and Folders.
Work processes in specific industries can be a very demanding task in terms of accuracy and precision. One of the tools that can optimize the process of achieving these high standards is augmented reality and smart glasses integration. It merges digital features into the physical world, providing new possibilities for the workers.
At Resco, we continue to build on this idea with Resco Inspections. Since last year, this solution is also available on the AR smartglasses from Microsoft. HoloLens is one of the most advanced devices in the field of augmented reality and now, you can harness its power with Resco Inspections.
The combination of innovative hardware with flexible software can be a cure for many pain points in challenging industry processes. Therefore, let’s take a look at several augmented reality enterprise use cases and explore their possibilities further:
Residential, commercial, and business properties are significantly expanding due to rapid population, business, and economic growth. Such tremendous growth, however, also comes with higher requirements and standards for all kinds of property management processes – from site surveys to inventory management and everything in-between.
What is a site survey?
One of the very first steps of any work project should be to survey the site on which it is about to be performed. This can prevent potential hazards and troubles, as well as provide useful information for the project managers. Usually, a site survey consists of several visits to the site, where various objects and aspects of the place are examined in detail.
The term asset management may refer to different things based on the industry in which it is performed.
However, in general, it represents processes with which a company (or a designated advisor) supervises and coordinates its material assets and processes. The goal is to grow the asset portfolio, as well as to increase its value through further investments. Asset management also ensures that both tangible and intangible assets of a company are maintained and put to their best possible use.
In this blog post, we are going to discuss asset management in the energy industry.
