E2 M2M® Features

The E2 M2M® platform has been developed as a set of modules that can interconnect with each other to offer a tailored solution for different needs.

Each module can be further customized and adapted to your workflow, data collections needs, and outputs. Our clients have also used E2 M2M® to develop new modules and workflows to adapt new or existing programs within their organizations.

Whether you are looking for a solution for field data collection and inspection that can incorporate coating, welding, and materials or a high-level program management and scheduling tool, E2 M2M® has a variety of existing modules that can be crafted and tailored to your needs. Or you can bring your ideas to the table, and we can help you build a solution that will fit your needs.

SECURE, TRACEABLE AND VERIFIABLE

The E2 M2M® platform has incorporated quality verification and quality assurance processes and functionality to ensure your data is stored safely and is secure from unauthorized access or modifications by establishing different levels of verifications and accountability with the use of audit trails, on-screen automated validations, and a backups redundancy.

Secure data enables users and management to have confidence in the decisions they make.

Traceable data allows for accountability and transparency of information to be readily available through the lifecycle of the data.

Verifiable data means the lifecycle established incorporates automated checks and validations or facilitates human verification procedures through an automated chain-of-command or quality assurance process.

SEAMLESS GIS INTEGRATION
The E2 M2M® team has deployed multiple GIS integrations both to pull data from GIS systems and to push data generated in E2 M2M® back. Data integration with GIS (ArcGIS or other platforms) can be done in a variety of different ways: data exports, APIs, scripts, and by making E2 M2M® a data source. The preferred method of integration for E2 M2M® is to create a PostgreSQL compliant data source which will host the E2 M2M® data and support geospatial fields. This can act as a data repository or data source for ArcGIS and host the same data both for E2 M2M® and your existing GIS platform.
OTHER INTEGRATION OPTIONS

E2 M2M® can work with your existing developers or system administrators to create data exchanges between ERP systems like SAP, Oracle databases, or scheduling systems like Primavera P6. The integration options for these systems depend on the level of access needed to the systems, the frequency of the data exchanges, and other security constraints or requirements that the system owner might establish. Some options for data integrations are:

Over-the-Fence Approach

E2 M2M® can automate data exports on a recurring basis in a variety of file formats or to external databases (xlsx, json, xml, sql, etc). These data exports can be used as data sources for import processes or scripts in SAP or P6. These ERP platforms offer a variety of ways to safely import or script data imports from static data sources. This type of integration is helpful is the data doesn’t need to be updated too frequently or if the target systems are behind a firewall.

ODBC Integration

ERP systems like SAP and Oracle offer the option to act as ODBC or JDBC data sources to third party-systems. The E2 M2M® platform can connect directly to these types of data sources to extract data or to update information in the source system. The E2 M2M® platform can also act as an ODBC-compliant data source compatible with MySQL and PostgreSQL, so third party systems can access data used in E2 M2M®.

API Integrations

The E2 M2M® can easily integrate with external APIs for web-services. E2 M2M® also offers a limited Rest API to access or update data in E2 M2M®. Most modern systems and web developers favor Rest APIs over other integration methods due to the standardization and structured methodology to interact with data over the web.

CUSTOMIZABLE PDF FORM OUTPUTS
Each module in the E2 M2M® platform features customizable PDF outputs to automate the generation of existing forms. Utilize the benefits of collecting data with E2 M2M® and retain the ability to output the information using any existing published forms or compliance documents.
DOCUMENT AND MEDIA STORAGE SOLUTIONS

The E2 M2M® platform allows users both on the field and in the office to exchange data and documents both ways. Field data users can take photos or videos of day-to-day work and immediately upload them to the cloud where office personnel can review in real-time the information and media submitted by field personnel. At the same time, office personnel can upload documents or files that field personnel might need in the field such as permits, operating procedures, as-builts, or maps.
