HHCApp Mobile

The mobile data entry web application is continuing to prove popular. HHCApp Mobile enables you to conduct audits by using mobile devices that can browse the web such as smart phones, iPod touch, iPad & computer tablets. In your mobile device go to the following web address HHCApp Mobile & type in your auditor username & password. Full instructions are available on our website.

Updates - HHCApp Mobile

Also as a reminder you must click the “Done” button at the completion of a session.  If you don’t the session information becomes incomplete and that session will not sync requiring you to resort to manually entering the moments. Windows Phone 7 users should have recently received an update to the new Mango operating system for their phone.  This means that you can now use your Windows phone to collect your moments using the updated internet browser.  If you would like more information or advice please contact Kel Heard by email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Online Learning Package(OLP)
