Freeway is an Android / iOS application by Development-X (the developers of Ostendo) which allows users to record data and interact with Ostendo via a smartphone / tablet.
The main features of Freeway include:
- Job data collection incl. scheduling jobs for technicians / contractors and recording labour times + parts / costs
- Warehouse pick / pack / receipt
- Shopfloor data collection including assembly labour capture and parts issues / receipts
- Sales order entry
- GPS tracking
- Custom inquiries eg. stock levels for a particular customer / supplier
Freeway can be operated entirely without an internet connection as all data is stored locally on the Android / iOS device and synchronised with Ostendo only when an internet connection is available.
Freeway can also be used to record user defined data / measurements as well as to collect signatures and take and store photographs of service work completed etc.
Finally, Freeway licensing is (as the name suggests) free. The only requirement is for a dedicated Ostendo license to run the Ostendo API required for Freeway.
