OpenERP touchscreen module


Dear community,

At my company, SECURITAS, we are currently using OpenERP Project modules for field service management.
Also, we would like to equip our field service personnel with a mobile solution to make it easier for them to manage their assigned tasks and fill out each intervention's work report.

They already carry laptops with 3G communications, but it isn't practical enough.
So we're considering to also equip them with a tablet device, probably 7"-8" Android, and provide a touch screen ready app to let them do this work on OpenERP.

I had a look at the POS, a I believe that a similar App could provide a viable solution for our needs.
The offline ability is an important feature for our use-case, since sometimes work is carried out in places with no GSM or WIFI connection, like underground locations or remote sites.

My current task is to assess the viability of a satisfactory OpenERP-based solution for this, and get an idea of what what kind of costs such a project might involve.
Right now are rather autonomous in 6.0-style module development, but 
this project requires some specific technical knowledge, so we are 
willing to outsource it.

So, I would appreciate experiences, comments and suggestions.

Thanks and regards,
Daniel Reis
