Software Application Development
In addition to providing quality geospatial services, SAM’s experienced technology professionals are constantly working to develop state-of-the-art software applications that offer innovative and efficient solutions for the geospatial industry.
The development team at SAM operates under industry standard best practices and methodologies. All software is created using a standard software development life cycle (SDLC), utilizing agile principles and methodologies. This approach allows the team to deliver working software to clients in an iterative fashion, instead of delivering the complete package at the end of the project, which offers the client more visibility and input into the final product. It also mitigates risk by ensuring the software works as intended.
The SAM development infrastructure operates as a multi-tiered environment, with segregated components for development, test and production. Developing software in this manner ensures that by the time the application reaches production, it has been fully vetted and tested for performance and stability. SAM also employs server and application monitoring so any complications are detected and resolved in a quick, efficient manner.
SAM developers recently built and released a framework to increase efficiency within project processes and the management of project data. This allows applications to take advantage of a custom API built to provide unified location information. Applications utilize REST service endpoints to integrate the many lines of business data into a unified standard format and have the same access to live, real-time data for decision making.
Mobile Device Apps
SAM has developed its own proprietary mobile apps to support various client project information management needs. These apps are available for iOS and Android devices through their respective app stores. They enable SAM clients using mobile devices to access mobile forms and submit data pertinent to their projects. Built using an industry leading proprietary platform, they offer a cloud-based, paperless approach to field data collection, allowing our clients to utilize a workflow that maximizes speed, efficiency, accessibility of their project forms. SAM can customize mobile forms to meet our clients' unique project needs and all submitted data is stored in our own cloud with secure client access. With SAM mobile apps your project field data can easily be submitted and accessed using mobile devices you're already familiar with.
SAM’s commitment to innovation and quality continues to enhance our internal business practices and bring added value to our clients, as we remain at the forefront of technological advancement within the geospatial industry.
