acQuire is rolling out the highly anticipated acQuire Arena mobile app for field data capture. As technology leaders in geoscience data management, acQuire has continued to re-define, adapt and adopt trends in the digital world. With GIM Suite 4.1 soon to be released, the acQuire Arena mobile app will be available from your favourite app stores (Android and Apple). That’s right, it’s mobile data capture in the truest sense of the term – using smartphones!
If you are a database manager keen to enable your field workers and geologists to capture surface samples and field observations on their mobile devices, even when they are offline, this is great news for you. You most likely want to upgrade to GIM Suite 4.1 at the earliest opportunity. But upgrading goes hand-in-hand with upskilling. *“Don’t be part of the 24 per cent who upskill only once a year, the 20 per cent who do so even less often or, worse yet, the four per cent who never upskill. A recent survey of 951 employers found 77 per cent are more likely to shortlist a qualified candidate who upskills regularly.”
If you are new to the acQuire Arena component of GIM Suite, you still need to start with the basics. The Arena Basics unit gives insight into the fundamental administrative skills needed to set up and manage the Arena component. In just half a day (face-to-face learning or virtual classroom), you will gain the confidence you need to manage Arena for your site.
After this, polish your task design skills with the Task Design unit, which helps you build interactive dashboards and reports for your end users. You will learn how to present data in the best possible visual medium, be it data grids, maps, charts or logs.
Next stop would be the new online learning unit Data Capture for Surface Sampling. In this unit, an experienced GIM Suite technology product owner and specialist show you the ropes. It is a short and simple unit, and completely online. So you can upskill from the comfort of your own office or home! Comprising a demonstration video covering every aspect of surface sampling data capture – from setting up the task for mobile users to downloading the app and using it in field, this unit will have you using the new capabilities like a pro!
We can’t resist using the cliché – it’s as easy as 1-2-3. Because, it is! Depending on where you are with your GIM Suite Learning journey, sign up for a unit that is right for you.
