Video: ArcGIS and Zerion Integration

Data Management | Workflow Automation | Use Cases

Zerion and Esri, in our honest opinion, are better together -- and Esri agrees, naming Zerion Software, makers of Zerion, "Best New Partner" in 2014! This video with Zerion Solutions Engineer Ben Ray shows you why Esri and iForm are a match made in heaven, and how integrating ArcGIS is easy with the iForm Mobile Data Collection Platform:

Inspection of Assets in the field is easier than ever with Zerion and Esri Mobile Applications' newest integration. This video shows a common use case of incorporating Mapping functionality into the Zerion Application.

1) A Parent Layer to hold all the Assets and a Sublayer to hold all Inspections about Assets.

2) Open an ArcGIS Mobile Application and view your Assets on the Map. Each asset is labeled by an Asset ID.

3) Tap on the Asset on the Map, and an iForm form will be opened up, with the Asset ID passed into a Form Field.

4) Use Zerion's Advanced Forms Features such as Javascript, Calculations, Skip Logic, and Subform (Related Tables) to capture data on that specific Asset Inspection.

5) Synchronize Data from Zerion and the inspection layer is updated with the new inspection for that Asset.

Location, Location Location! Every record and subform record collected in Zerion contains very valuable metadata including timestamp, latitude, longitude, altitude and speed. By using iForm and ArcGIS together, you can collect sophisticated data with the seamless integration-- taking your inspections, audits, and other data collection tasks to the next level!
