How to Create a Mobile Work Order During Your Lunch Break

The reason that close to 3/4s of GoCanvas users are able to build their first mobile form in less than a day is because of our code-free form builder and template library. 

Paper form converting into mobile form

We give organizations looking to quickly convert their paper work orders to mobile versions a variety of options including our Send Us Your Form program. Through this program, you can simply upload or email us a copy of your existing work order and we will convert it into a mobile form ABSOLUTELY FREE! The upload process takes just seconds, and our team will custom build the mobile form within a couple business days. 

This "Send it and Forget it" option is great if you're short on time and don't want to take a couple of minutes to learn all the great features that you can build into your mobile forms including photo capture, barcode scanning, material/project lists, and much more.

The second option is choosing one of the pre-made mobile work order forms that reside in our Application Store of over 20,000 industry and use-case specific templates. This allows you to take your time as you find the right work order that matches your industry and use case. The best part is that you can download as many templates as you wish, test them out, and even customize them using the GoCanvas App Builder to make sure they are perfect. This option is perfect for people who don't want start from scratch but also want to be hands-on as they build out the mobile platform for their business.

The last option (but best in my opinion) is to create a custom work order using the drag-and-drop, no-code builder.

This option gives you the ability to customize everything from the features, user experience, and the reports of your work order. You are able to make the work order as simple as a two screen mobile form with simple data entry fields to as complex as a 15 screen mobile form with automated calculations and conditional fields. This option allows you create a data collection experience that matches the specific job or project that your employees are undertaking.

The best part about all of these options is that there is NOT a huge time or cost investment. Your business is able to design, create, and deploy a mobile platform under a week without the need for involving IT or outside consulting services. This is ideal for any company who is looking for a boost in productivity but is afraid of investing large amounts of time and money in technology.
