Try to capture census data and GIS coordinates from remote places more accurately and efficiently.
Statistics SA fieldworkers using DP&P technology are able to capture census data and GIS coordinates from remote places more accurately and efficiently. The technology is suitable for such remote data capture because applications are limitless and you can use the pen anywhere where there is GPRS enabled cellular network coverage.
The technology has the potential to significantly contribute to the lowering of costs as compared with traditional data capturing methods. As opposed to supplying workers with computers or mobile devices, by implementing this technology into the workplace, government and corporates can significantly reduce costs. With rudimentary training and a relatively small investment, companies can yield greater efficiencies and up their bottom line. Furthermore, its simplicity allows it to be easily integrated into existing workflows without disrupting existing paper-based procedures.
