HighStone provides an application module that runs on touch-screen and GPS enabled hand-held mobile devices. This allows users to download asset data for on-site surveys, easily record instances of damage and deterioration, and undertake inventory asset stock takes. Survey data is uploaded to the main HighStone contract database on conclusion of the site survey.
The inventory asset records in HighStone are entirely generic in definition and allow asset component types to be allocated to required classifications. Each asset type may be created with its own set of asset component attributes that define the basic characteristics of each asset type.
HighStone provides a three-level hierarchical definition for allocating the asset items to their physical location in the field. This generic structure can be applied as required, for example using building, floor and room in applications based around room inventories or county, road number and section in applications based on Highways maintenance. Asset records support GPS location information.
