Reston, VA & New York, NY: Fixxbook.com announced today the launch of their mobile application store designed to provide mobile apps that will enable contractors and facility managers to drop their clipboards and pick up their Smartphones and Tablets to replace paper-based processes. Powered by Canvas at www.gocanvas.com/fixxbook, Fixxbook apps are fully customizable by users and support the broadest set of mobile devices including Android, Android Tablets, BlackBerry, iPhone, iPad, Windows Mobile Devices and Windows XP+ devices.
Built on the GoCanvas platform, fixxbook now offers contractors and facility managers a way to find Form apps such as work orders, proposals, maintenance forms, inspection forms, time sheets and much more quickly and easily. Users can modify these apps to fit their specific business needs and even take their current paper-based forms and rapidly turn them into mobile apps. Users can incorporate features that take a company well beyond paper forms, such as GPS/location, image capture, electronic signatures and accessibility to parts/pricing catalogs and labor schedules. Once a contractor or facility manager uses their app, a PDF is automatically generated and can be emailed and/or accessed through a secure, online account. Data can also be downloaded into an Excel spreadsheet or directly into popular back-end systems such as QuickBooks, QuickBase and others through simple integration, effectively eliminating the need for manually intensive paper-based forms.
“Our principal objective at fixxbook.com is to introduce technology solutions that support and streamline the relationship between facilities managers and contractors. Our partnership with GoCanvas will provide effective mobile solutions that will ultimately reduce operating costs for both the contractor and facilities professionals.” Eric Schechter, President of fixxbook.com
“Canvas is proud to partner with fixxbook.com as they look to introduce to the thousands of contractors and facility managers they serve an offering that will not only speed up the flow of information but also provide a powerful solution that takes a company well beyond paper” added James Quigley, CEO of GoCanvas.
Fixxbook.com is the Web's most searchable contractor directory. Its purpose is to connect contractors and facilities managers quickly and easily. We've spent a long time trying to better understand the problems facing facilities clients – there are thousands and thousands of service contractors out there and no efficient way for clients to quickly and easily sort through them to find the right contractor they need at the time they need them. Fixxbook.com is the first independent searchable contractor directory. It’s available to every contractor and every client looking to hire a contractor.
GoCanvas makes it easy to publish data collection apps on smartphones and tablets as well as other devices such as laptops, netbooks and bar code scanning devices. GoCanvas reduces paper consumption, redundant data entry, and excess processes for businesses and mobile professionals. The GoCanvas software service enables mobile professionals to collect information using their mobile devices, analyze that data on the GoCanvas website and share information across their business community. GoCanvas also offers the first mobile business application store of its kind allowing business users to find mobile applications that work on a wide variety of mobile devices, with every application being customizable by GoCanvas users. To date GoCanvas has automated over 100,000 manual processes/paper forms making it one of the fastest growing mobile app services for businesses. To learn more visit www.GoCanvas.com.
