Fulcrum today announced the integration of its no-code mobile application platform with Esri, the industry-leading provider of location intelligence software. As a result, Fulcrum’s rich location-based data can then be used in products such as Esri ArcGIS™ to increase productivity for safety inspectors, quality assurance teams, asset management inspectors, and more; to improve data integration and location intelligence within cross-functional teams; and to manage field teams more effectively.
Additionally, joint Fulcrum and Esri customers will soon be able to push sophisticated maps from Esri products into Fulcrum, which will ensure that mobile workforces get complete, detailed location information as they collect data in the field. Fulcrum users will be able to use the latest maps for any type of scenario—such as fiber cable layout plans, electrical grid layouts, physical assets under management, and the like—on their mobile devices, even in locations without an Internet connection, and without writing code.
According to Daniel Morgan, GIS Manager from Tilson, a leading network design, build, and operating firm specializing in very large information infrastructure projects, “Fulcrum’s new Feature Services capability makes it easy for us to use Esri products to visualize location-based data from Fulcrum without writing any code. That really streamlines the process of creating integrated maps, dashboards and reports we need to deliver insights for large-scale projects across multiple teams.”
Fulcrum’s new Esri integration dramatically simplifies the creation and maintenance of data collection and analysis processes that wring as much value as possible from location information. Using Feature Services, an Esri standard for information exchange, Fulcrum enables one-click publishing of data to ArcGIS Online as well as easy integration with other Esri products.
Jim Grady, CEO of Fulcrum, says, “Many of our customers want to gain richer insights from the data they collect, and geographically dispersed teams in particular are underserved by typical mobile application platforms. Our new integration with Esri empowers field workforces by harnessing location-based insights in an incredibly easy way, which enables digital transformation and increases the value of existing Esri investments.”
