think project!, the Munich, Germany-based Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration technology provider has announced the release of a new ‘WebApp’ interface, optimised – using HTML5 – for smartphones.
According to the company, the new interface supports fingertip navigation by users on their smartphones. For example, planning, documentation and defect management processes can be initiated, edited and tracked via a smartphone. Additionally, all project status reports and ‘to-dos’ relating to reviews and approvals can now be called up and edited via a smartphone.
Jochen Maurer, head of product management at think project! says:
think project! has operated on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones as an integrated, web-based application. In the past, however, smartphone operations were not optimal when using the older interace intended for desktop usage together with a keyboard and mouse. It is for this reason that we developed a new mobile interface. This interface is optimised for usage with ‘small’ devices such as smartphones. The interface enables remote and on-site users to conveniently access think project! for reading messages and documents, participating in workflows and issuing approvals. From now on, smartphones accessng think project! will be automatically directed to this new interface.
It is a “WebApp” based on HTML5, which will be loaded automatically when you use a smartphone accessing our sites. It is not just a mobile representation.
think project! has previously (August 2013) released Apple iOS and Android apps for site-based inspection and data gathering processes on smartphones.
