For many professional trades people, the Smartphone has become an integral part of their day-to-day work. Bosch has recognised this trend. Since February 2012, the tried-and-tested Bosch Toolbox App with functions such as a unit converter, flashlight and mobile catalogue of Bosch professional power tools has been available for Smartphones. Now another practical application is being added to the digital toolbox, namely the measurement camera. It helps to quickly and easily document jobsite data. You can take a photo, enter the dimensions directly into the photo with arrows and angles, make notes, save it and send it by e-mail â€’ all with this free app.
Provide valuable time-saving when preparing quotations
The measurement camera is intended to replace pencil and paper, which often get lost in the chaos on jobsites, and makes work easier for trades people by providing digital assistance. For example, the measurement camera saves valuable time when preparing quotations. All necessary information, such as details about the position of mains connections and piping or wiring, can be noted directly in the photo for use at a later time. This minimises the risk of forgetting important details. It also puts an end to the time-consuming task of matching up and comparing freehand sketches and digital photos that have been created on the jobsite. Moreover, professional trades people can also record videos and voice memos with this app and store all the data from their different building projects in an organized directory of self-created folders. This enables the user to keep track of everything, even if he has a large number of jobs to manage.
At the end of 2012 another digital tool called 'Building documentation' will be added to the app. This will enable users to document building projects even more comprehensively with Smartphones with a 'Team mode' which will enable multiple workers to access the same project and work on it at the same time.
The measurement camera app is available to download free as part of the Bosch Toolbox app from October 2012 in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store for Smartphones with Android and IOS operating systems.
