TORONTO, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GroveWare Technologies Ltd. (OTCQB:GROV) has recently concluded a series of contracts to install and implement GroveWare's MobiTask™ inspection software at several residential and commercial building inspection companies in the northeastern U.S. MobiTask is designed to streamline each customer's inspection process, enhance quality assurance, and improve the timeliness, while reducing the costs, associated with their inspection, reporting, compliance and certification activities. Each of the five companies learned about the solution from its representative from Verizon Wireless, GroveWare's largest channel partner.
"We are very pleased to be able to support these companies in their commitment to better serve their customers through the adoption of an automated inspection and compliance reporting capability using MobiTask and today's wireless technologies," remarked Harry Achkarian, GroveWare's CEO. "We believe that MobiTask is readily adaptable to wide variety of inspection, certification and licensing applications by both business and government and the companies that are now using MobiTask to facilitate building inspections are a great example of how our solution can be quickly and inexpensively deployed to benefit of all types of inspection companies and agencies. There are almost 8,000 independent and government entities that complete millions of building code compliance inspections and certifications each year. With the constant pressure on these companies and agencies to streamline their processes, reduce overheads and better serve their constituents, we are excited about GroveWare's potential to grow its revenues in this sector."
GroveWare's MobiTask will help to resolve several of the fundamental challenges that most inspection companies have been facing. Almost all of these businesses have been using paper-based process. Inspectors typically complete paper forms that must be mailed and then compiled and processed by a roster of clerical staff. As more and more local, county and state governments contract-out their on-site inspections (to insure contractor compliance with local and state electrical, plumbing and other building codes and ordinances), new business opportunities are growing faster than the ability of many independent inspection companies to manage the increased paper burden. As well, the use of paper forms and the subsequent manual processing, causes delay and adds cost. Inspection companies and their customers are looking for greater efficiency and cost-competitiveness. By using wireless devices to transfer compliance, certification (or infraction) data and thereby replacing paper forms, they can greatly enhance their ability to better service their existing customers and position themselves to be able to acquire and manage new business. In summary, these inspection companies gain efficiencies, reduce cost, raise the bar on customer service, open new growth opportunities and improve earnings.
A MobiTask installation is comparatively inexpensive to set-up, typically costing customers only a few thousand dollars for initial design, configuration and integration and each user is then charged a monthly fee by GroveWare for use of the software (depending on the number of users and features selected). By comparison, custom-built solutions can often cost tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. The monthly subscription fees paid to GroveWare are almost always offset by many multiples of operating cost savings which makes the value proposition very attractive to prospective clients.

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
