Tree Trimming Overview

Computapole's Tree Trimming is a completely automated tree and vegetation production logging system. Our visual interface is intuitive so that your foremen and contractors can focus on what they are entering rather than how to enter it. We start with the latest version of our Tree Trimming mobile program and from there customize the entire application to suit your needs.

Tree Trimming's application interface allows for easy entry of data needed to keep full track of all vegetation maintenance production. Whether you perform your trimming in-house or contract the work out, keeping track of the production work completed is simple and complete. Our easy to follow interface is laid out in an intuitive and natural way allowing your contractors and foremen to keep their focus on production details while being fast and efficient. Production entry mistakes will become a rarity because our applications check all fields for valid data before saving the inspection. After displaying the validation error message, the program will even take the user to the field that was entered incorrectly so there is never confusion as to where the error lies. Corrections can be made immediately without having to scroll through several program screens to correct the data entry error.

Using GPS, Tree Trimming tracks the location of each production site to ensure that the area worked on can be properly reported on and vegetation information for that area is instantly updated. Our GPS map shows your position relative to the production locations so you can quickly review all work locations nearby.

Computapole software provides disaster recovery from most any situation. Programs and data are stored on non-volatile memory with automatic daily backups and automated recovery procedures should system batteries go dead or be accidentally removed. Our mobile applications can be re-installed right from the memory card if required, eliminated any down time in the field. If a certain device inspector needs to continue inspecting on a different device they need only to take their memory card with them, no need to transfer files through a network or ship the device in and wait for a replacement.

PC-Side Application

Our Tree Trimming application can be used as a stand-alone application or along with our PC-side Tree Trimming application. The PC program will handle all the data transmission, program updates to the device, and report generation. Our PC-side program can even handle inserting the data into a database thousands of miles away if needed. If needed our PC-side program can support generating new production entries directly.

Our Tree Trimming PC application is loaded with features that make your job easier. Take our Edit feature, using this you can connect to your central database and create new vegetation entries or edit existing ones. The layout is simple so it's easy to use and little perks like Windows Hot Keys and logical tabbing make entering data very fast. Need to enter the week ending date? Don't bother looking up a day on your desk calendar, instead choose the day from our mini-calendar that pops up in the program when needed. The edit feature takes record editing a step farther by including a full search criteria selection. Enter more fields to narrow down the search, or enter only a couple of fields for a broad search. Our search and data load algorithms have been optimized to give you data as fast as your database server can send it back. It is easy to make the changes to a record because our data grid has been extended to allow editing of the record directly on the grid. Predefined field values even have a pull down list right in the grid itself.

We will custom design your tree trimming production reports. We can make them look like existing reports you already use, or provide a new look and feel. With the PC Tree Trimming program all of your reports are just a few clicks today. No need to write your own queries to get data from your database, the PC Tree Trimming program lets you select reporting criteria from our simple graphical interface. Using the Tree Trimming program you simply select search criteria from our simple interface and with a click you will have all of your reports onscreen from which you can generate PDF or Excel documents, or simply press print for a hardcopy.

Installing and upgrading your PC-side application is as simple as clicking the installation file on your desktop. Using our PC-side software along with the mobile application makes updating Tree Trimming with new preload, program version, and database lookup tables as simple as connecting the device to your PC and clicking a button.
