NEW DOTAG MOBILE DOCUMENTATION APP
What does the new Dotag worksite documentation app consist of.
NEW MOBILE DEVICE FEATURES
How does the mobile device (phone and tablet) usability improve.
NEW MANAGER FEATURES
Dotag Manager will consist of a lot of new features.
We have compiled this article to share with you the new features and development schedule of the Dotag work site documentation app.
Dotag application was officially launched on the Finnish market at the beginning of 2019.
As I write this, Dotag has 48 users in over 10 companies.
Dotag will only be available in Finland until the end of 2020.
The next goal is not only the Finnish market but the European market as well. The budget for the next stage of development is set at EUR 98 000.
We interviewed several companies in various industries to gather new development ideas and needs.
We are trying to match these needs as closely as possible, without losing the essence of the application, “no paper and pen for work site visits”.
This core essence means virtually a simple user interface, offline functionality on mobile devices, industry-generic, and fast deployment at no initial cost.
A big thank you belongs to YOU, our customers and partners. Without your feedback and constructive criticism, this would not have not been possible.
I am often asked how the new development will affect pricing, to which I reply the following: Current customers can enjoy a new, more comprehensive documentation app at the same familiar price as now. For new customers, the pricing model will be very different and a little more complex.

It does not matter which industry You work in. Dotag gathers your worksite Markings digitally all the same.
