Xora Enhances StreetSmart Mobile Forms and Mileage Manager
New Release Delivers Key Capabilities, Increases Competitive
Advantage Over Other Solutions for Both Managers and Mobile Workers
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Xora, a
ClickSoftware Company (NASDAQ: CKSW), today announced a new release
of Xora StreetSmart(TM), its flagship mobile workforce management
solution, featuring industry-leading enhancements to the Mobile Forms
and Mileage Manager apps, designed to drive greater efficiency and
potential cost savings.
This upgrade provides powerful new capabilities for Xora Mobile
Forms. First, managers can access all submitted form data from a
single page, with filters for quickly narrowing in on the desired
data, plus the ability to edit or complete partial form submissions.
Second, new form sharing options provide the ability to automatically
share form data upon submission or on-demand from the mobile app.
These new capabilities streamline the access to and use of form data,
making it rapidly accessible to both managers and customers for
providing immediate proof of service. These advancements, added to
the industry's easiest interface for form creation and deployment,
including the ability to integrate mobile forms with timesheet and
job workflows, makes Xora StreetSmart Mobile Forms the most powerful
forms offering for mobile businesses.
The only Mobile Workforce Management solution to offer a full mileage
management app, Xora StreetSmart Mileage Manager now includes
enhancements that enable managers to export a PDF of the User Route
Map, which displays the actual route of a trip taken compared with
the Google Maps suggested route. Managers can now easily share this
visual route information with customers or review it with employees
as well as archive it for future reference.
"The improvements we have made to the Mobile Forms and Mileage
Manager provide functionality that isn't available in mobile
workforce management offerings from any other vendor," said Tom
Miltonberger, vice president of Products and Engineering for Xora.
"These enhancements continue our track record of giving our users
industry-leading capabilities that help them to work more effectively
"We use the enhanced Xora StreetSmart Mobile Forms to easily access
the form data that our crews submit for each job they complete. The
new management interface has made reviewing those completed forms
even easier," said Robert Ewald, owner and president of landscaping
company Ewald Services Inc. "We like the convenience of having one
place to view and monitor all submitted forms, which enables us to
speed and simplify our invoicing and better manage our cash flow."
"By emailing mobile forms directly from their handsets, our
supervisors can have improved visibility into what's happening at
each job site. We are also emailing the completed forms to clients so
they get the same info in real-time," said Michael C. Wyatt, the CEO
of Geese Police Indiana, which uses border collies to clear Canada
geese from client properties.
