Inspections and Operators Logs Tracking App for Saskatchewan Water Security Agency

Inspections and Operators Logs Tracking App for Saskatchewan Water Security Agency


Portfolio Description

Background and History

The Water Security Agency manages the province’s water supply, protects water quality, ensures safe drinking water and treatment of wastewater, owns and manages 72 dams and related water supply channels, reduces flood and drought damage, protects aquatic habitats, and provides information about water.

The Problem

The Saskatchewan Water Security Agency (WSA) required a standard process for capturing and storing inspections and operator logs information among various groups associated with Saskatchewan’s water infrastructure, including the 72 dams it owns and operates. 

Their challenges were:

  • Time-intensive paper process
  • Inconsistent process to complete inspections and operator logs information
  • Staff required off-line access while out in the field

Our Solution

Spot Solutions used Microsoft Dynamics technology to build the mobile application that allows field personnel to access and capture pertinent information from a tablet or smart device and store the data in a centralized location and a Management/System Administration Dashboard web application that allows the information to be analyzed and managed from a database. The application provides powerful mapping functionality that allows captured information to be displayed on a map and can be directly integrated with ESRI ArcMap and ArcGIS to provide an additional GIS layer.

The Impact 

WSA now has an easy-to-use mobile application to consistently capture and store inspections and operators’ log information.

Now they can:

  • Access and capture pertinent information from a tablet or smart device while off-line and out in the field
  • Complete inspections more quickly and consistently
  • Analyze and use their data to make informed decisions
