MobileHWY and Inventu Solution Boosts Productivity of Building Inspection and Code Enforcement with SUNGARD'S HTE IBM® AS400 Platform

Share Article

Currently, many building and code enforcement workers create reports of the day's workload, perform their field inspections, make hand-written notes on the reports, then manually enter the notes into back-office systems upon their return to the office at the end of the day. This process is both inefficient and wrought with the potential for errors. With the combined MobileHWY and Inventu mobile/host-integrated solution, these workforces perform most or all of their work in the field, reducing errors, travel, and costs, and getting more done for the businesses and citizens within their municipalities.

MobileHWY and Inventu Corporation have entered into a co-marketing agreement designed to make it easier for municipalities to make productivity breakthroughs by using MobilHWY's Mobile INSPECTOR™ and CONTRACTOR™, two key mobile solutions that ease the heavy burden on the building inspection and code enforcement functions of jurisdictions nationwide. The two companies offer a solution that integrates with SunGard's HTE IBM® AS400-based application, leveraging MobileHWY's solutions and Inventu's AS400/iSeries/System I, mainframe and Unix back-end integration product offerings, and addressing a substantial installed base. Examples of successful collaborations between MobileHWY and Inventu have included Gaston County, North Carolina and the Town of Jupiter, Florida.

The solution provides substantially increased productivity and accuracy for in-field inspections and record keeping. Currently, many building and code enforcement workers create reports of the day's workload, perform their field inspections, make hand-written notes on the reports, then manually enter the notes into back-office systems upon their return to the office at the end of the day. This process is both inefficient and wrought with the potential for errors. With the combined MobileHWY and Inventu mobile/host-integrated solution, these workforces perform most or all of their work in the field, reducing errors, travel, and costs, and getting more done for the businesses and citizens within their municipalities. This allows cash strapped and heavily burdened local and county governments to achieve huge ROI by streamlining how their mobile workforces serve the community.

"Jurisdictions that have host systems and a mobile field workforce that needs to access host-based information can make real breakthroughs in cost and efficiency with the joint Inventu and MobileHWY offering. MobileHWY's mobile solutions and Inventu's host integration offerings are a winning combination, providing proven value and ROI," stated Bill Thorne, President and CTO, Inventu Corporation.

"We immediately saw the value in pursuing the SunGard HTE IBM® AS400 market with Inventu's host integration offerings and our mobile solutions," stated Rob Cummings, President of MobileHWY, "With many successful implementations of our mobile solutions behind us, we look forward to working with other jurisdictions who are constrained by these host systems. Inventu's offerings will allow us to work with these host-based systems more effectively, benefiting us and our customers."
