Zia Mapper Photo Manager mobile app increases workflows and enables more accurate project output

Zia Corporation, a provider of mobile and cloud-based project management solutions, today announced the general availability of Zia Mapper Photo Manager. The Zia Mapper Photo Manager is a free, customized photo management mobile application for industry professionals who use photos in their field-based work – helping to simplify, organize, and revolutionize workflows and project output.

Photos can be used in a variety of field-based scenarios. From land surveyors, civil engineers, and building inspectors who document job site conditions and add visual reference details to design plans; to insurance adjustors taking photos to support reported insurance claims; to realtors needing to build a visual portfolio for their clients. “Photos are the best format to use in many field projects and job sites, but a lack of good organization and management of the photos can become a problem and create additional overhead when finalizing reports and project output,” says Brian Jaquess, Zia Corporation Founder and Chief Developer. "We believe in simplifying, organizing, and revolutionizing the photo management process by creating efficient and cost-saving mobile & web apps and Zia Mapper Photo Manager is designed to do just that."

Zia Mapper Photo Manager simplifies the tasks of organizing, shooting, mapping and annotating photos taken in field-based projects. Leveraging the built-in camera of Android or iOS mobile devices, Zia Mapper Photo Manager allows users to quickly snap photos which are automatically appended with accurate GPS coordinates and displayed on mapping backgrounds, as well as providing options for entering text-based annotations about the photo. The app organizes photos into project folders for quick sorting and future reference. Zia Mapper Photo Manager revolutionizes daily operations because it’s bringing together key technologies into one specialized project management mobile app that saves time, providing a clear return on investment.

Specific to the land surveyor use case, Mike Douglass, Vice President of Surveys for Smith Engineering in Roswell, New Mexico says, “when it comes to project management and the organization of site photos, the right technologies save us valuable time. In a business as fast-paced and detail-oriented as civil engineering & land surveying, that often means the difference between accurate, high-quality work and subpar deliverables. Whether it’s avoiding duplicate field points or photos, catching important details, or delivering thorough surveys to a client, the right technology can make all the difference.”

Brian Jaquess summarized, “While this application was designed to improve workflows with several industry-specific use cases in mind, it offers the same benefits for users across many professions, and we believe that offering Zia Mapper Photo Manager as a free download will inspire users to give it a try and create their own use cases that save them time and money, and result in more accurate work.” For more information on product usage, read the Tech App Review at: https://techappreviews.com/zia-photo-manager/f/app-designer-review.

Zia Mapper Photo Manager completed Beta testing in March 2018 and was just released as a free application for individual users on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ziamapper) and the Apple Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/zia-mapper-photo-manager/id1275628532?mt=8).

Additionally, Zia Corporation is currently working on enhancing features for the mobile app such as reporting in Adobe .pdf format which can be instantly emailed to other project stakeholders for increased team efficiency and direct use in formal presentations and reports. Zia also expects to start developing a cloud-based version to enable large project teams to collaborate in real-time between the field and office workers later in 2018.
