Trikker Service is a complete ASP solution for real-time task reporting of mobile work force. The service is made easy to use simply by touching NFC/RFId tags (Near Field Communication, Radio Frequency Identification).
Trikker Service can be used in many business fields including security patrolling, home-care, cleaning, maintenance and repair.
Work force reporting is important for business, but not always desired by the employees. Trikker Service makes the reporting simplier for personnel. Mobile phone as reporting tool is light to carry with, and reporting tags can be distributed to all required locations indoor and outdoor, including cars and other vehicles.
Trikker Service can be integrated into company's existing IT system. Both ways supervisors can follow work force's activities and support needs in real time. Trikker Service brings cost efficiency and added value to the customer through most accurate real time data and improved service.
Reporting data is sent from the field be retrieved by Trikker Service via Internet wireless. Two way data communication between Trikker Server and mobile phone passes the GSM/GPRS network quickly and reliably in text format. No customer site IT installations are required.
Trikker Service allows to add and modify reporting features. Perhaps new certain customer sites or increasing number of users may require new reporting or administration tools. Usually such new features can be implemented without any service breaks.
The service platform is also flexible for new terminals. The use of new compatible NFC phones can be implemented smoothly, where as the old phones are still in simultaneous use until the end of the life cycle. E.g. a Trikker Service solution originally developed for Nokia 5140i NFC, needed only small phone application update to be used with Nokia 6131 NFC or Nokia 6212 Classic.
