DocuWrx Designs Custom FileMaker Solution Using 360Works MirrorSync

Discussion created by User29811 on Apr 5, 2017

DocuWrx has extensive experience developing custom software solutions for clients. Some of the custom development DocuWrx is particularly excited about is work with Grindley Williams Engineering (GWE). Grindley Williams is an engineering and geologic firm based in Lakeland, Florida. GWE specializes in geotechnical evaluations, foundation design, geophysical surveys, and forensic structural engineering. On a daily basis GWE inspectors are sent to homes throughout the state of Florida that have sustained damage. Each inspector tracks their entire inspection using an iPad equipped with a custom DocuWrx solution.

Due to the nomadic nature of their work, inspectors cannot fully rely on a high quality internet connection during inspections, so DocuWrx created a solution for the iPad designed to work completely offline. With this solution, inspectors can sync their offline inspection data to a server; it also allows inspectors to include hundreds of pictures, interviews, and notes in each sync.

DocuWrx implemented MirrorSync by 360Works to support Grindley Williams’ FileMaker system because of their past experience with 360works plugins. MirrorSync is a server-side web application that performs differential syncs. This synchronization detects any changes on any offline device and pushes the required data to the server. It dramatically increased sync speed and was able to validate sync success even in situations where a sync is cancelled, no data will be lost because MirrorSync can simply run again to complete the sync. 

Installing MirrorSync addressed all of the concerns clients have with offline syncing, and is significantly less expensive than re-building a new custom sync implementation.
