How Trailhead Helped
WEB + MOBILE APPLICATION
Trailhead and Weather Shield participated in a Design Workshop to gather requirements and rapidly prototype a mobile application concept.
It was important to Weather Shield that the new app not be a silo. The Weather Shield mobile app
integrates with Microsoft Dynamics for it’s master account data, stores collected photos in SharePoint, and allows single sign-on through Office 365.
The choice of a tablet based layout allows estimators to easily transition from their current paper based approach, and gives a sufficiently large drawing surface to be able to annotate photos directly on site in the app. Finished estimates can be immediately transmitted back to a cloud based back end for use by office personnel preparing quotes while the estimator moves on to the next job.
