Recently, a Texas-based SCS Company has begun using GoCanvas to automate their data collection on iPads and iPhones. This company specializes in facilities management, design, and maintenance. Their expertise ranges from electrical systems to mechanical systems, all of which are designed to operate and maximize efficiency.
Before adopting a mobile solution, this company would fill out countless paper forms in order to collect relevant data. Due to the volume of raw data needed, employees would hastily write down key metrics and notes and then go back and fill out complete forms after their site visits. Many of these values would be rewritten several times throughout their visit as they progressed through the facility.
Being a company whose services was based upon the ability to provide operational efficiency, this Texas SCS company knew they had to make a change. By implementing GoCanvas apps on iPhones and iPads, they were able to enact the changes they needed. Employees can now capture key data points in a fraction of the time and select values from repeating list screens, rather than rewriting the data several times. Not only was this company able to eliminate redundancy while going paperless, but also automate the document delivery and storage methods. This Texas SCS company is currently working to implement webservices with GoCanvas, allowing the data to flow seamlessly into their own backend systems.
