Combining the power of Motion Tablet PCs with tablet-optimized software solutions is the most effective way to help mobile professionals get the most value out of their mobility investments
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) July 15, 2009
IDEAL, developer of large format document management software, including web-based subscription and enterprise solutions for architects, engineers and construction, and Motion Computing®, a leader in mobile solutions for professionals in industries including healthcare, government, and field force automation, announced today that the companies' combined solutions promote green, paperless workflow within the construction industry.
Motion®'s enhanced line of tablet PCs and IDEAL's patented planroom technology for viewing and distribution of large format documents will help construction companies rely more on digital documents, helping to save substantially on printing costs, conserve natural resources, and speed the communication of job-site revisions.
IDEAL's planroom technology will be available on a subscription basis as IDEALscanroom.com and will be available through Motion Computing's reseller channel. IDEALscanroom incorporates all of the familiar features of IDEAL's planrooms, including bid management, email notifications, redlining, archiving of as-builts, and, new in Scanroom, the ability for contractors to create a revenue center, by offering permission-based chargeable digital downloads.
"Rather than paying for printing, for the first time, contractors are empowered to charge for digital downloads, so they not only save money on printing costs, but can also make money on the downloads," says Jay Magenheim, president of IDEAL. "And, because the construction drawings can be viewed prior to download, there will be less printing over-all, so trees will be saved, and the environment will be protected. This is a win-win for all parties."
"Combining the power of Motion Tablet PCs with tablet-optimized software solutions is the most effective way to help mobile professionals get the most value out of their mobility investments," said Mike Stinson, VP of Marketing, Motion Computing. "We are excited to help make IDEALscanroom available to our construction customers and are confident that they can revolutionize the way they work through the use of advanced mobile technologies."
