GoCanvas Hits the High Seas – Shipbuilder Uses iPads for Inspections

By scott shea on July 25, 2012

One of the world leaders in commercial and defense shipbuilding has decided to make the switch to GoCanvas mobile apps on iOS devices.   Building these high-quality vessels is no small feat, so in order to ensure quality and safety, inspections are a necessary and integral part of the shipbuilding process.

Prior to using GoCanvas, these inspections were done on antiquated pen and paper forms.   After making the move to GoCanvas, they can complete a multitude of safety assurance tests without having to sift through the various forms.  All the Apps are readily accessible right on an inspector’s iPad.  GoCanvas allows subscribers to create as many separate Apps as necessary to replace all of their paper forms.

These shipbuilders have been able to streamline many aspects of their business with GoCanvas.  Material requests, purchase orders, various inspection forms, and basic time cards are all electronically compiled and stored on Canvas's secure servers.  Once any form is complete, regardless of where it is being filled out, the data is available in real time back at the office.  The days of carrying stacks of paper forms for a single inspection are a thing of the past!  And if they need to reference one of these documents, they can log onto their account on the GoCanvas website and quickly search for it.  There is advanced search functionality that allows GoCanvas subscribers to search by any field in their App, a date range, by user, and much more.
