With the help of links users can be directed to defined web pages. For example, a user may be redirected to a Google-document or a Facebook site.
Linking mobile codes to Buildlink information resources and services
Buildlink operates on standard mobile codes (QR and NFC). Using these mobile codes any physical locations or specifically targeted areas, facilities, e.g. monitors, devices and meters are flexibly connected to the web services provided by Buildlink.
Mobile codes can be attached and linked to
- Buildlings (fixed locations and physical structures)
- Facilities in the buildings (devices, machines, movables)
- Tasks and operations
Linking mobile codes (QR codes) is done using the “Tag” button in the (mobile) device used. Tags can be attached (tämä on myös fyysistä liittämistä) and linked to information resources on various levels. It is possible to link many tags to the same target location, place or document. In buildings a user can place tags for example near entrance doors, onto storey hall walls or into apartments. Industrial clients of Buildlink may place many tags onto the same machines or devices.
Ready made and delivered codes can be attached to chosen locations and are immediately available for use. The user can add extra information to codes, using e.g. text, symbols, logos and brands. Mobile codes are available in various sizes, forms and materials - e.g. as paper or cardboard sheets, sticker rolls, and other print materials (incl. NFC codes).
A user may define which batch or set of codes the tags he or she orders are produced of.

It is further possible to allow users (e.g. those carrying out a service procedure at a distance) to enclose material to documents such as pics taken at locations or of e.g. targeted appliances or spots of interest, this increasing information passed onto other users via Buildlink. Users can define the stage or phase of processes, e.g. of a maintenance operation, and it is possible to control and limit durations of tasks. Users are able to monitor any procedures managed using Buildlink in real time.
The users at the end of the service chain (e.g. service, repair and maintenance workers) can access information either by navigating via the service or by scanning mobile codes in the locations where tasks are performed.
Buildlink allows users to create several functions as an aggregate (e.g. listed or presented in maintenance logs or manuals) for the same building or location, and tasks can be allocated to specified end users. Creating aggregates of functions or task combinations is done in one go, and users can later add innumerable operations to these task combinations.
