Sparrow Overview

Have you ever sat on a patio and watched the sparrows? They are hard to tell apart. Some are looking for scraps of food or nesting materials and some are just checking things out. They fly in, land, hop around, pick something up, drop something off, and fly away.

A bit like the employees in your company. With little to no oversight, no one really knows what they are doing and how much time they are spending. Where have they been? Where did they leave that piece of equipment? What have they been doing all day?

Sparrow Oversight was conceived to monitor the activity of employees and direct their activity in real time. For better understanding, better reporting and better business analytics.
Why do you need Sparrow?   Everyday people and things move around. Rarely a paper trail is sufficient to keep track of their activity and even if the paper trail does exist, it's a paper trail that can't easily be searched, sorted, reported, export or audited. Sparrow keeps all those paper records - the clipboards - in a secure online database.

Sparrow answers the question of "Who was where with what when?" and also "Why?"

What does Sparrow do?   Sparrow informs management about what activities are being performed by which billable resources and where equipment or supplies are being used or moved to and from. It keeps track of Time Attendance, Asset Locations, Utilization Rates, Resource Allocation, Activity and location of mobile workers.

It provides the "Viewers" (your employees that are using it) with information about the items that they are handling and what they should be doing and prompts them to provide details about what they have just done or are about to do.

What is Sparrow?   Sparrow is a unique combination of three common technologies - QR Code Markers, a Mobile Application, and a secure online database for reporting. The first time a "Viewer" scans a marker, they register with the system. They see the dynamic content that is behind the marker and a record of their interaction is stored in the secure online database.

Later on, management can log into their unique Sparrow Portal and generate exportable reports relating to which viewers have scanned which markers. Management can create the markers from same secure interface, print them on the office printer and affix them to the assets that need tracked or the locations where workers need to check-in.

The content behind the markers can be simple and static or dynamic. The viewers are informed what they are looking at and can provide additional details through form submissions.
