Jonas Construction Software Announces Development of Mobile Applications

Jonas Construction Software, a division of Constellation Software Inc. (CSI), announces two new mobile applications currently in development: Jonas eReporting and Jonas Scanner. Initially, the Scanner app will be available on Android devices in the Google Play Store and eventually in the Apple App Store as well. The Jonas eReporting app will be available in both app stores as well as being able to run in Microsoft Windows.

The goal in releasing these mobile applications is to leverage technology and provide a simple, easy to use interface that can be used in the field, or in the office, that integrates directly with the Jonas system. Building on a tried, tested, and true ERP system such as Jonas Enterprise, these mobile apps will revolutionize the way business is done in the construction industry, through utilizing new technological advancements. While these mobile apps represent a different way of conducting business outside of the conventional norms, all of the information entered will still be automatically integrated into the Jonas system.

The eReporting mobile application provides the ability to generate reports directly from the field, leveraging the information found in Jonas’ full ERP database including documents stored in the Digio document management system. The app has an easy to use design, allowing reports to be created with ease, drill down capabilities to specific documents and/or other key information, and the ability to display information in numerous graphical formats. According to Orton Baker, Vice President of Development at Jonas, “This application provides the information needed to make key decisions in the office or in the field, in real-time.”

Mobile Scanner
The mobile scanner application is designed for end-users to be able to use modern scanning techniques to scan inventory items in the warehouse or in the field. The application will be used in conjunction with the Jonas ERP system to build lists of items for charging to jobs and work orders, receiving and transferring inventory, as well as inventory count purposes. Orton Baker states, “Its sleek and simple design is intuitive and will help gain efficiencies in these workflows.”

Discussing these applications and more at the Construction Americas 2015 Exposition on March 27th, 2015 is Jonas’ Vice President of Development, Orton Baker. Orton Baker has 25 years of software research and development experience, with 20 of those years specifically in the construction software space. When considering new products and features for development, Orton believes in pragmatic forward thinking development – creating products that will receive wide user adoption, while leveraging technology that is future-proof and will stand the test of time.
