Merit Electric Goes Mobile with GoCanvas on Android

Merit Electric, a Kentucky Based Electric Company, has made the move to paperless forms by utilizing GoCanvas on their Android powered devices.  Mobile workers now capture any and all work related information through a series of custom apps designed for faster flow of information.

Before implementing mobile forms with GoCanvas, Merit employees would repeatedly complete multiple forms on a daily or weekly basis.  These forms would then be turned in to administrators back at the office to be separated, processed, and logged.  Now, mobile workers fill out these forms on their mobile tablets and send them back to the office instantly.  These completed submissions are automatically separated by form and can be further indexed by administrators by any other field, including employee.  The data captured includes Plans of Action, Expense Reports, Fuel Logs, Daily Job Reports, Inventory Reports, Safety Checklists, Requisitions, a Master List of all tools available/used, and even Vacation/Request for Time off. 

Because of Canvas’s sophisticated functions and ease of use, Merit has even replaced their invoicing system with a GoCanvas app.  The ability to track this data more dynamically has provided management with more effective tools to monitor job progress and expense.

By implementing tools to help ensure the accuracy of these metrics as well as the timely reporting of them, Merit Electric has been able to get a more precise picture of the company’s current standings at any given time.

When using GoCanvas to track mobile work processes and expenses, the benefits of using mobile forms extend beyond just saving the cost of paper to actually improving business processes.  For apps to help improve the flow of information in your business, visit Canvas’s Application Store.  Once added to your account, all apps can be totally customized to fit your needs!  If you have more specific needs you can create your own custom app in our App Builder, or Send Us Your Form to have us create it for you!
