Cotswold Archaeology, an industry leader in the UK, wanted to modernize the way its field research team members collect data in the field. The organization wanted to introduce genuine innovation into the industry.
Head of fieldwork, Simon Cox, gave the team at Start Software this challenge:
“to build an innovative paperless recording, analysis and archiving system that sets the standard for British archaeological contractors”
Start Software used Alpha Anywhere to create a mobile data collection solution to capture photos, sketches, text data and more. The solution replaces paper data collection forms with a mobile forms app. The solution works on iOS or Android mobile devices, shares information in real-time, and works without an internet connection. The data collection tool speeds data entry by automatically collecting critical information, such as GPS location.
