Brookhaven National Labs Mobile Apps with Canvas

Brookhaven National Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy facility, has started using GoCanvas on Android and iOS to improve the flow of information critical to operational integrity.  By moving from paper forms to GoCanvas apps, this Brookhaven generates reports on any operational emergencies and communicates them near instantaneously.

Brookhaven uses an app that was custom built using our App Builder to record all vital information about any emergencies, as they occur, and then relays this information back to emergency response teams as well as all facility controllers.  By utilizing GoCanvas to gather and distribute this critical information, they have been able to increase speed and help ensure data accuracy by utilizing dynamic features such as our GPS capture.  As the timeliness and accuracy of this information is critical to the operational safety of the facility, the move from paper forms and verbal radio reports to fast mobile forms was essential.

Once the emergency has been dealt with and things put back to a normal state, the laboratory can then pair additional investigative findings with their initial event reports, stored on Canvas’s secure server.

From managing operational emergencies, to increasing speed of your employee’s workflows, Canvas’s Application Store has something for everyone.  Once downloaded to your account all apps are totally customizable to fit your specific needs!  Can’t find an app that fits you right?  Send Us Your Form as a part of your free trial and have it built by Canvas’s design team!
