Asurio, Inc. Announces New Version of BirdDog Cloud-based Mobile Inspection Software

February 25, 2019

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Feb. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asurio, Inc. (www.asurio.com), a Colorado company offering cloud-based mobile inspection & data collection software, today announced a powerful, new version of its BirdDog software for mobile inspections. BirdDog 6.0 offers a simplified, integrated user interface, and powerful new features to speed & streamline the process of mobile inspections.

This new version of BirdDog Mobile Inspection Software is available immediately to new customers. Existing customers already using BirdDog will be gradually transitioned onto the new, integrated technology platform in 2019. In addition, Asurio, Inc. is a Microsoft partner, and will be hosting BirdDog on the Microsoft Azure cloud computing solution, resulting in world-class 24/7 reliability and security.

What Does BirdDog Mobile Inspection Software Do?

BirdDog mobile inspection software allows users to:

-- Perform field inspections & data collection -- Store the data on a tablet or mobile device -- Upload the data from the tablet to the BirdDog system -- Manage & share the inspection or audit data -- Develop a wide variety of reports based on a single inspection

New Version of BirdDog Software Brings Next-generation Technology to Mobile Inspections

Here are highlights of enhancements & additions to BirdDog Mobile Inspection Software:

-- New, Integrated Platform: Asurio engineers have integrated the field inspection software and administration software into one combined platform. -- Support for Microsoft, Android & Apple: This new version of BirdDog Mobile Inspection Software operates on the top 3 standard technology platforms: Apple, Android & Microsoft. As a result, field techs can use Apple, Android, or Microsoft tablets to record inspection results. BirdDog also can work in “off-line” mode on all 3 mobile platforms. This means that field inspectors working deep in the heart of a building where they can’t access a wireless internet connection can conduct their inspection, save the data, and upload the inspection results once they can access a viable internet connection. -- Enhanced, Digital Inspection Forms with Additional Information Fields: Asurio engineers also have added helpful, new information fields, including: Individual locations of multiple deficiencies such as painted sprinkler heads, category of deficiencies, and more. -- New Fire Extinguisher Inspection Module: BirdDog’s new fire extinguisher module has asset tracking capabilities allowing inspectors to take full advantage of fire extinguisher serial and manufacturer bar codes for improved productivity using “auto answer” feature where fire extinguisher information auto-populates for selection by the inspector; -- New Field User Interface: The field inspector interface has been re-designed so it’s simpler and easier to use, with more information that auto-populates. The new field interface also is easier to read in bright light and low-light environments. -- New BirdDog Application Program Interface (API): Asurio also offers an application program interface (API) based on the BirdDog Inspection Software engine. This new API makes it easier for developers to incorporate inspection functions into software solutions they are developing. In addition, the BirdDog API meets a critical need: allowing inspection results to easily be formatted & uploaded to agencies providing inspections oversight such as fire departments, inspections departments, and third-party administrators contracted to alert building owners of required actions following inspections.
