A digital agency has created an app that allows construction teams to access and amend their project information on the go from their mobile phones and tablet devices.
Newcastle-based Shout Digital developed the 4Mobile system for Sunderland construction software company 4Projects, which specialises in providing cloud-based collaboration services for architects, designers and building professionals.
The system means clients are able to log on to their project details from their mobile devices, to share or alter data in real time, wherever they are.
Shout Digital, which has previously created a digital personal trainer for people preparing for the Great North Run and a celeb spotter app for readers of OK! magazine, was challenged to design an easy-to-use app that neatly fitted into the collaborative system that 4Projects’ clients are already familiar with. Shout’s designers provided the app for iPhone and iPad, and Android phone and tablet devices, and developed both the creative and user experience (UX) design of the app.
Shout Digital managing director Gary Boon said: “The app integrates in real time with the 4Projects system enhancing collaboration for clients using the information sharing space. It’s not just a stand-alone application, there is complex integration with back-end systems that allows users to view3D models within the app. It was a complex project, but we delivered it on time and in budget, and we’re looking forward to continuing the relationship with 4Projects for the next phases of the app development.”
