Globe Telecom and GoCanvas

Businesses’ desire to shift from inefficient paper forms and manual processes to mobile apps fuels demand by global telecommunications providers for Canvas’s cloud-based software

Reston, VA – July 08, 2014 – GoCanvas today announced that Globe Telecom, a leading mobile telecommunications company in the Philippines through its IT Enabled Services Group (IG), has selected GoCanvas for an enhanced mobile business offering that enables Globe customers to transition from paper processes to dynamic, feature-rich mobile apps.  

GoCanvas, the global leader in mobile apps for businesses, is a cloud-based software service that empowers business users to collect information using mobile devices, share that information, and integrate with existing backend business systems. As a result of the new partnership with GoCanvas, enterprise and small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers of Globe can unlock the potential of their smartphones and tablets by shifting key business processes from paper forms to dynamic mobile apps with functionality that includes:

  • Customizable mobile form building and editing
  • Electronic signature capture
  • Location collection via GPS
  • Job dispatching
  • Image capture
  • Barcode scanning
  • Access to a company’s own business data
  • API Integration

Businesses of all sizes and across all industries are shifting core business processes to mobile devices; they are drawn to the ability of mobile apps to solve challenges associated with inefficient paper-based processes. In a 2014 GoCanvas survey of business and IT decision makers, 63 percent of respondents indicated that they see value integrating core business applications – such as Dropbox, Square, Salesforce, Evernote and Quickbooks – with mobile devices and tools.

Globe will leverage GoCanvas’s cloud-based service and mobile business app store – which currently has more than 22,000 business apps ranging from inspection forms and work orders to surveys and checklists – to differentiate its communications offering in a highly competitive market. With GoCanvas, businesses can truly “go paperless” and reap the significant cost, productivity, and efficiency gains that come along with shifting from paper to digital. On average, they can save up to 75% on paper costs and achieve annual productivity savings of $3,800 per user.

“Forward-thinking telecommunications service providers seeking to acquire and retain business customers recognize they must deliver services that not only improve communications and collaboration, but that also empower their customers to be more productive by unlocking the full potential of mobile workers,” said James Quigley, chief executive officer, GoCanvas. “We are thrilled to partner with Globe Telecom on this mobile business offering, and believe that this solution will resonate with customers of all sizes, ranging from multinational corporations to small businesses.” 

Globe Chief Operating Officer for Business and International Markets and Chief Strategy Officer Gil B. Genio adds that, "with its mandate to help Philippine customers grow their businesses, Globe through its IT-Enabled Services Group is pleased to provide them anew with best-in-class IT solutions beyond telco core services through GoCanvas. With the collaboration between two industry leaders, our enhanced mobile business offerings will ultimately enhance productivity, heighten collaboration, and generate quick returns on investment. We believe that these will empower Philippine organizations to streamline their business operations, with GoCanvas as an innovative cloud-based platform and Globe IG as their ICT partner.”
