Overview

Product Overview

The BlueFletch Support Application provides organized device information giving companies the ability to make informed, data-driven decisions using mobile business intelligence.

Support Agent is comprised of two main components:

  • Support Agent Dashboard
  • Support Agent Application

The Support Application runs as a service in the background of an Android device, collecting and sending device usage data to Google Cloud Platform.

This data is stored and accessible through the Support Analytics tab on the EMS web portal.

Features

Major features are tracking Network usage, Application Usage, and Battery Usage, as well as sending Heartbeat events.

Network Usage: When changing between BSSID's, network connection summary information is calculated.

Application Usage: The amount of time applications are used.

Battery Usage: Track battery usage during the day per device.

Application Install / Removal: Events indicating when applications are installed and removed.

Help Desk: Display Help Desk information on the Device.

Find Me Event Processing: When an event is received, an audible alarm is sounded, making it easier to locate a device.

For more information see the Events Page.
