Meadowlark: Sheffield based computer consultancy

Software for builders

We have spent seven years researching and developing software for the construction industry. Our first application was called JobTrac and was highly successful and enthusiastically rated by users.

Convinced we could improve on this success, we re-wrote the software from scratch, using more powerful technology, and released this as JobVision ®.

We are now developing supporting computer software that runs on most devices via the Adobe Air software deployment system

Adobe Air applications take many forms but all run - like Java - on the broadest range of operating systems. The implications for this are enormous

It will no longer be necessary to buy seperate software for the PC, the Mac, iOS devices, Android devices, and mobile Windows devices, one software installation will run the same on all of them.

What you can expect from computer hardware in the future?

Smaller faster, cheaper, lighter computers for the desktop. They will be no larger than a DVD drive. They will be silent, and run free software, and much of this will be web based. They will use solid state disks, and large quantities of cheap memory.

More powerful mobile phones will largely replace traditional PCs. The screens of mobiles will occupy as much of the phone as physicallly possible. Soft buttons will have largely replaced mechanical buttons in top of the range phones.

Sophisticated screen display technology will be available that will allow us to use bigger computer monitors in smaller less likely workplaces.

Micro-factories: places of work no bigger than a loft extension, where budding entrepreneurs labour in their free time "printing" products with 3D printers and selling their wares by the internet.
