Introducing AASHTOWare Project Mobile Tester

August 30, 2019

A Mobile, Flexible Field Sampling Application

Ever have issues feeding field sample data into AASHTOWare Project Construction & Materials? With the release of Mobile Tester, AASHTO plans on making it easier for inspectors and field personnel to capture vital sample data at the source. Launching on September 10, 2019, Mobile Tester is built with a number of time-saving features that will allow agencies to immediately start using the tool in their existing workflow.

Create Sample Records in the Field

Air content, slump, temperature, soil density – you name it. Inspectors can run the tests they need and enter results, photos, location data, and more directly into their phone or tablet, where it will sync with AASHTOWare Project Construction & Materials when an internet connection is available.

Configurable Agency Views

Implementing a new tool can often delay existing processes. With configurable simple Agency Views, agencies can ensure Mobile Tester is set up to meet their various field data recording needs. 

Work Offline in a Progressive Web App (PWA)

Mobile Tester is a PWA, which is a website that acts like an app. Unlike traditional apps, Mobile Tester can be accessed from most browsers, without the need to go through an app store. And since it behaves like an app, field staff can use Mobile Tester without an internet connection. Once field staff regains internet connection, they will be able to transmit their data using the AASHTOWare Project SYNC Service.

Upgrade to AASHTOWare Project 4.2 to Ensure Compatibility

Efficiency tools like Mobile Tester enable your inspectors to stay in the field longer. In order for agencies to use Mobile Tester, they will need to be in production with the latest version of AASHTOWare Project Construction and Materials. More information about the latest upgrade can be found at aashtowareproject.org.
