Marine surveying, a critical aspect of maritime operations, demands meticulous attention to detail and seamless communication among surveyors, clients, and support teams. Traditionally, paper-based methods posed challenges in terms of data accuracy, real-time collaboration, and overall efficiency. Recognizing these challenges, the Marine Surveying company sought to revolutionize its operations through a digital solution that would not only streamline its workflows but also enhance the quality of its services.



The client was stuck in a time-consuming and complicated way of the work process. They used Excel sheets to handle tasks like managing jobs, keeping track of staff hours, and making audit reports while out in the field which was inefficient, error-prone, and time-consuming.  Also, this way of working meant they couldn't get things done as quickly as they wanted. To fix these issues, they needed a modern solution that would make things easier and smoother.


Inefficient and Error-Prone Process

The company's reliance on Excel sheets and paper documents resulted in inefficiencies across the board. Surveyors encountered challenges in capturing accurate data promptly, which often led to inaccuracies. Additionally, the process of manually compiling audit reports on-site hindered productivity and detracted from the focus on delivering quality surveying services.


Time-Consuming Nature

The manual nature of the process consumed valuable time that could have been better utilized for more productive tasks. Surveyors were burdened with the additional responsibility of data entry and report compilation, which not only held back their efficiency but also led to delayed client deliverables.

Project Scopes and Objectives

The collaborative partnership between MoldoWEB and the Marine Surveying company aimed to develop a robust Mobile Workforce Application that would serve as a comprehensive tool for surveyors and managers operating both in the field and within the organization. The primary objectives included:


  • Real-time Data Capture: The application needed to facilitate the seamless and accurate capture of survey data in real-time. This feature would not only minimize errors associated with manual data entry but also expedite the overall surveying process.
  • Enhanced Communication: To bridge the gap between field surveyors, clients, and support teams, the application was designed to facilitate instant communication through a secure and user-friendly interface.
  • Efficient Report Generation: The application aimed to automate the process of generating detailed survey reports, complete with visual aids and comprehensive analysis, thereby reducing turnaround time for clients.
  • Scalability and Adaptability: The application was designed to be scalable, enabling future enhancements and adaptations to meet evolving industry demands.


Solution and Impact

With the implementation of the Mobile Workforce Application, the client experienced a remarkable transformation:
  • Efficient Job Management: The centralized job tracking and assignment streamlined job allocation and minimized errors, resulting in improved task management and productivity.
  • Enhanced Communication: The comprehensive job details and messaging feature fostered better communication, enabling swift and clear information exchange among teams.
  • Timely Audit Reports: The report feature reduced turnaround times for audit reports, improving the overall quality of client deliverables.
  • Accurate Data Capture: The application's features ensured precise data entry, boosting data integrity and reliability.
  • Increased Field Productivity: Surveyors experienced enhanced productivity due to user-friendly data entry and streamlined processes, reducing paperwork-related hold-ups.
  • Transparency in Expenses: The expense tracking feature facilitated transparent and organized management of surveyor expenses.
  • Seamless Collaboration: Real-time synchronization and geolocation integration facilitated seamless collaboration and enhanced decision-making across distributed teams.


In conclusion, the Mobile Workforce Application revolutionized the client's operational landscape, replacing outdated manual practices with a dynamic, technology-driven solution. 

The partnership between the Marine Surveying company and MoldoWEB highlights the power of technology in transforming maritime practices.
