Asta Development has also come up with Site Progress Mobile, a mobile app and cloud storage solution for Asta Power project users which delivers easy, flexible progress reporting on site and on the move. Currently available in Android and iOS, a windows compatible version is soon to follow. It requires downloading and registration and a meager monthly fee is implemented based on the number of users and project files.

The user controls the updates on the app but when the signal is weak Site Progress Mobile goes offline and automatically saves progress updates, images and notes on the mobile device until the connection is restored. The data is then automatically synchronized back into the project plan. Site Progress Mobile also allows photographs to be taken and associate them with particular tasks or build stages of photographs to show real on site progress.
