How GoCanvas Helps Organizations Switch to Mobile Apps for Business

By matthew bubna-litic on February 17, 2014

When the first generation iphone was released in 2007, many of us doubted that mobile apps would ever play a large part in our lives.  Now it’s hard to imagine how we ever got by without them. Whether it’s organizing our day, keeping track of social events, simply or checking the weather forecast; I think most of us agree that mobile apps are useful.

However, while many of us use apps in our personal lives apps in our professional lives require more time and care. You may be willing to spend the time and money on photography apps for pleasure. Yet an app requiring an intensive investment in both time and money in work takes away from the work you already do.

GoCanvas not only saves you both time and money, but also creates an easy user experience. Companies spanning manufacturing to childcare have easily adapted to our mobile app for business.   

1. Custom Mobile Business App, No Coding Required

Rather than reinvent the wheel, GoCanvas helps organizations create more efficient data collection processes. In plain English, we replace your paper process with a mobile app. Do you have employees out in the field completing inspections, work orders, invoices or service tickets on paper? You can recreate the experience on your mobile device. With GoCanvas, you are able to build your own forms to look identical to your previous paper forms.

We make building apps easy as well. Our application store has over 12,000 apps pre-built and ready to use today or to be edited as much or as little as you like.  You don’t need to understand code to have a mobile business app tailored to your business. You don’t have to train your employees in any new software. All they have to do is download the app and start filling to forms that you assign to them.

2. Easy to Use for Instant Value

Our mobile business app is both faster and easier to use than traditional pen and paper. This is possible with a variety of features such as drop down lists, remember and recall, and calculations so the forms basically fill themselves in.  You can also harness your own data such as price or equipment lists to prepopulate your forms with information for your users. Not only does this create a faster process, but also provides you more accurate data.

As in any business, your users are comfortable on different platforms. Android, iOS, Blackberry are all platforms we support. Whether you use a ruggedized Motorola solution or the latest iPad Airs, your workers can fully utilize GoCanvas. This allows for a faster pick up time by your users, and lower hardware costs for you too.

More than just collecting the data, integrating it into your systems is easy with GoCanvas too. All files are available in the cloud, but you can download them in a csv or xml file. If you want seamless integration, we also provide API webservices as well. Most companies spend hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars a year on redundant data entry. With GoCanvas, this waste becomes a thing of the past.
