Mobile technologies connect the office and construction site

Our mobile applications thinkproject PHOTO and thinkproject QUALITY for iOS and Android allow you to connect to the tpCDE on-site. Capture information and pictures or use for other functions such as checking the status of a defect directly on-site. The apps can be used offline and the information is synchronised as soon as you are back online.

Our Mobile Version Check allows you to find out if printed documents are still up to date with QR-Codes printed directly onto the document which are scanned with your mobile device to display the result of the status check.
