Carmel Software is pleased to announce that it has released the HVAC Equipment Locator software application for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch. This is a one-and-only mobile application that allows you to input information about all of your HVAC equipment, upload it to a SAFE and SECURE remote server (here), and share information about this equipment with other technicians within your company. This app is so unique because it identifies your equipment by its GPS coordinates. Think about it: every piece of standing equipment has a unique location or GPS coordinate. This GPS coordinate becomes the equipment's globally unique identifier, allowing you to input and retrieve information about it just by standing next to it. The features and benefits of this app are:
  1. Input all basic and maintenance-related information about your customers' HVAC equipment so as to keep a centralized record of this data
  2. Take pictures and assign the pictures to the equipment or individual maintenance events
  3. Store the GPS coordinates of the piece of equipment so that when you return to it, the information will automatically appear when you are located next to it
  4. Upload (or sync) the equipment information to a centralized web server so that project managers and other technicians at your company can view and edit this information (all secure in terms of transferring data and being able to view it)
  5. Download the equipment information to other technicians' mobile devices so they can view information and also update if necessary
  6. All information is transmitted and stored in a safe and secure manner
  7. and much more .....
This app actually consists of two components:
  1. The HVAC Equipment Locator mobile app, itself. Click here for info.
  2. The Carmel Equipment Server website. Click here for info.
"The iPhone is an amazing new platform for developing simple software tools that users can utilize out in the field. We developed the HVAC Equipment Locator application knowing that it would be a great app to quickly record information about your HVAC equipment and upload it to a remote web server for further analysis," says Carter Coleman, Director of Sales for Carmel Software.
