CTX Platform

AI generated minibus in the countryside and a network in the sky

The CTX platform has been developed over the last few years to include not only the desktop application CTX but also Apps for smartphones (IOS and Android) and the web. This broad platform allows projects to access their applications from anywhere and confident that their data is safe and secure. The functionality of the mobile and web applications is being added to constantly and are fast becoming a vital part of projects day to day workflow.

All the applications and websites are accessible through the project users ‘ctxLive account’ with the permissions and access managed by the project, as are the various settings and rules to ensure the applications behave as the project expect.

The platform has allowed us to add interfaces that allow projects to integrate with external applications through our ‘custom API’. Not just internal applications such as Microsoft 365 but projects websites and more. There are no extra charges for these services they are just part of your CTX Subscription.

Below we have added a brief description of some of the key applications, however there isn’t space available here to cover all the features of the platform or the applications it’s best to contact us and request a demonstration, we typically do this over Microsoft Teams, Zoom or whatever you use, once we have run through the basics you can install a demonstration copy of CTX and explore at your convenience. To arrange this you can call on (+44) 1768 779988 or Email info@shaunsoft.com.

ctxGoDrive is a mobile app that your drivers can install, on their own phones or phones that you manage, through either the ‘Apple App Store’ or ‘Google Play Store’, free of charge. Once you enable the drivers account through the main CTX application then can then use the app to view their drives and schedules. The App can be configured to require the driver performs a vehicle check, designed by your organisation, submit faults and damage.

The app communicates over the CTX Platform in real time, so you can allocate and cancel work as the day goes on. You can see the status of the jobs directly in the CTX schedules and even text chat with the driver. ctxGoDrive is the most secure way of getting a drivers work to them, no more send lists by email or on paper.
