Carmel Software announces that it has released a major update to the HVAC Equipment Locator software application for the Apple iPhone and iPad. This is a unique mobile application that allows users to input information about all of their HVAC equipment, upload it to a safe and secure remote server, and share information about this equipment with other technicians within the company. This app is unique because it identifies equipment by 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 the user to input and retrieve information about it just by standing next to it. The features and benefits of this app are:
  1. New: The HVAC Equipment Locator is now a universal app, meaning that it works on both the iPhone (3.5" and 4" screen) and iPad and adjusts the user interface accordingly
  2. New: Includes additional inputs for refrigerant type, filter and belt sizes, and more...
  3. Input all basic and maintenance-related information about a customers' HVAC equipment so as to keep a centralized record of this data
  4. Take pictures and assign the pictures to the equipment or individual maintenance events
  5. Store the GPS coordinates of the piece of equipment so that when the user returns to it, the information will automatically appear when located next to it
  6. Upload (or sync) the equipment information to a centralized web server so that project managers and other technicians at the company can view and edit this information
  7. Download the equipment information to other technicians' mobile devices so they can view information and also update if necessary
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 and iPad are amazing new platforms 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 Stephen Roth, Principal of Carmel Software.
