The Many Uses of Mi-Forms Mobile Forms

Mi-Corporation's Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Gautham Pandiyan, was recently interviewed about the many uses of digital forms.

You can read the full interview here.

--

Question 1

"One of Mi-Corporation's most popular products is Mi-Forms, an enterprise-class mobile forms software that can be used on any device, anywhere. Could you give us a basic overview of Mi-Forms, as well as some possible applications?"

Gautham:

"Mi-Forms is a best-of-breed mobile data capture software platform that allows an organization to design and deploy electronic form apps to any device, to collect any type of data (such as GPS coordinates, photos, voice, barcodes and more). Our software can be used online and offline, and the data can be exported to any enterprise system by using our 90 APIs and web services."

Example applications include:

  1. Pesticide inspections done by the NC Department of Agriculture to keep the citizens of NC safe by regulating the applicators.
  2. Clinical trial documentation by the NIH & IDCRP to help derive insights to cure various infectious diseases.
  3. Safety inspections by Transport for London to keep the transportation infrastructure safe for the citizens of London.
  4. Sales order entry documentation for Doyle Security Systems to streamline the processes and timeliness of taking customer orders.

Question 2

"One of Mi-Forms' main benefits is the ability to gather 'rich data.' What are some examples of rich data, and how can it be leveraged to help a company stand out from their competition?"

Gautham:

"Some examples of rich data include multimedia data such as voice recordings, barcodes, GPS coordinates, RFID tags, and more, as well as data that can be dynamically displayed based on lookups and back-end databases, line of business systems and more--even while offline. Mi-Forms software has stronger offline capabilities than most other platforms in the market based on its ability to replicate data sets from enterprise systems down to a local SQLite database on different devices. The flexibility of the platform, and the top notch service and support that backs it up from Mi-Corporation, are also key differentiators. Lastly, our 10 issued patents around the technology is unmatched in the industry."

Major European Transportation Operation Expanding Platform for Rapid Development, Deployment of Mobile Forms for Mission-Critical Data Sharing Needs

DURHAM, N.C. & LONDON, ENGLAND -- Mi-Corporation, the award-winning mobile information company, has completed the first stage of a controlled rollout of flexible, scalable, and secure enterprise-class mobile forms solution for Transport for London’s (TfL) mission-critical data sharing needs.

In addition to managing London's buses, the Tube network with its 1.265 billion annual riders, Docklands Light Railway, Overground and Tramlink, TfL also runs Barclays Cycle Hire, London River Services, Victoria Coach Station, the Emirates Air Line and London Transport Museum.

Mi-Corporation was selected by TfL in May 2014, following a competitive worldwide RFP, to provide the local government body with a platform for the rapid development and deployment of mobile forms, workflow capability and system integration. In the summer of 2014, Mi-Corporation was on-site in London for testing, pre-production, and eventual production for one of TfL’s business units, its Fleet Quality Management Services Division.

Mi-Corporation’s team was quickly & effectively able to design a series of 16 e-forms apps – deployed on iPads and fed back into a centralized server – for testing and implementation in the fall and winter of 2014, which TfL used to track the cleanliness & conditions of train cars as well as productivity of the inspectors. As of February 2015, the system had successfully processed 3,000 form submissions.

Before engaging Mi-Corporation, TfL’s various business units were trying to rollout their own individual mobile forms systems. The organization’s Information Management Department realized the potential problems of coordinating and managing such a diverse operation, and wanted a solution to centralize a mobile forms platform for inspections, work order management, materials management and similar asset-management and related disciplines.

TfL’s initial purchase of a Phase 1 license covered up to 5,000 users at the agency. Upon the successful rollout of the Phase 1 project and demand building from other business units, TfL has now purchased an Enterprise-Wide license to cover 27,000 users at the agency for all mobile data capture & reporting needs.

In addition to the forms rollout within the Fleet Quality Management Services Division, similar forms are in development for two other business units, which will be going online soon.

According to Chris DiPierro, CTO of Mi-Corporation, “We are pleased to bring a positive impact to the citizens of London and the TfL employees that serve them, by assisting TfL with the capture & sharing of mission critical data to help improve quality management, the rider experience & much more. We have also awarded TfL the Mi-Corporation User of the Year award for their quick, successful deployment!

 Mi-Corporation Hosts Successful Mobility Summit

Mobile Technology Industry Leaders Examine Trends, Challenges in Reducing Human Error, Compliance, Streamlining Logistics, Increasing Productivity and Efficiency.

 

DURHAM, N.C. -- Mi-Corporation, the award-winning mobile information company, welcomed leaders from the mobile technology industry to Durham April 22-23 for the company’s annual Mobility Summit, an examination of how mobility solutions are transforming the way companies do business.

The well-attended event provided vendor exhibits, informative educational opportunities, and vibrant networking for attendees to share best practices in successfully utilizing mobile software and hardware to reduce human error, comply with government regulations, streamline logistics, and increase productivity and efficiency.

We had incredibly substantive presentations as well as meaningful collaboration between attendees to identify needs and solutions to move the mobile technology industry forward,” Mi-Corporation VP of Sales & Marketing Gautham Pandiyan said. “One our speakers & our CTO even collaborated during the event to instantly prototype a new feature, to enhance our solutions with location-based services, showing that innovative sparks can fly at such gatherings!

Highlights of the event included market updates; technical expert and business process consultations; an interactive mobile app workshop; a mobility expert panel; examinations of successful mobility use cases; a presentation on Microsoft’s roadmap in mobility & with Windows 10; overseas perspectives; and a standing-room-only keynote speech by former Editor-in-Chief of Mobile Enterprise Magazine and current enterprise mobility analyst, Tony Rizzo of Blue Hill Research.

Rizzo’s presentation examined where mobility was back in 2010, where it is now after hitting an inflexion point in 2013-2014, and where it is heading in the years ahead. Explaining that mobility is a strategic differentiator and long-term business strategy and not a short-term fix, he noted that there is no enterprise today that doesn’t understand mobility has to be a part of it to succeed, and those who don’t have their mobile house in order are lagging behind, wasting resources trying to catch-up.

Rizzo examined mobility through its relationship to three key business stakeholders -- line of business, IT, and finance -- exploring how all three work together in a collaborative, cohesive way to achieve mobility goals of significantly improving and transforming business processes, driving down the total cost of operations, and increasing competitiveness and maximizing revenue opportunity.

With mobility you have to think about what’s new, exploring available solutions, and taking time to make sure they’re the right solutions to deliver on the flexibility to meet a great number of needs, not just the needs of the moment,” he said, adding, “There is a groundswell of mobility coming, and Mi-Co is well-positioned to address that.” Tony Rizzo has also published an analytical report on Mi-Corporation available for download now as well.

In addition to Rizzo, Mobility Summit 2015 speakers included:

Amanda Butlett, Mobility Services Director, Enterprise Mobile

Doug Edwards, Project Technician, Virginia Dept. of Agriculture and Consumer Services Office of Pesticide Services

Natalie Houlahan, Marketing Manager, DataDevice Pty Ltd

Mike King, Manager, Solution Design, BIS

Bryan Lesko, Windows Device TSP, Microsoft

Reid Lewis, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Twocanoes Software and Labs

Steve Orell, Co-Founder, Proximity Insight

Oie Osterkamp, Executive Director, Ronald McDonald House of Durham

Paul Russo, Director of Global Deployment Support, Motion Computing

Hakki Sahinkaya, Software Developer, Data Magik

 

Mi-Corporation doled out several awards during the Summit, including the User of the Year Award, given to the organization that has rolled out its mobile solutions in the most scalable & successful way. This year the award went to Transport for London (TfL), which manages London's buses and Tube network, has completed a successful phase 1 deployment and is scaling Mi-Corporation’s Mi-Forms mobile forms software to 27,000 users at the agency.

The Virginia Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services received Mi-Corporation’s Process Improvement Organization of the Year award for successfully transforming their paper process to a mobile process for field inspectors’ inspection processes. BIS received the Mi-Corporation partner of the year award, and Concrete Data received the Mi-Corporation Innovator of the year award for their work on the unique Offline Data Replication system from Mi-Corporation.

Mobility Summit 2015 sponsors included Motion Computing, NarraSoft, NewWave Technologies, Success360i, DataCaliper, Concrete Data and Walt Brown Co. Those that missed the summit can catch up with our “Mobility Summit 2015 Recap” blog post.

Mi-Corporation has continually shared its mobile data expertise gained in serving clients over the past 15 years -- as well as its intellectual leadership garnered through the development of 10 issued U.S. patents -- via participation in national industry events; webinars; and the company’s Mobility Summit. Mi-Corporation’s 2016 Mobility Summit will be held April 19-21, 2016.

5. iBeacon Technology + Mi-Forms

iBeaconTechnologyThere are enormous possibilities with iBeacon technology and location-based services. Our iBeacon panelists Steve Orell of Proximity Insight and Reid Lewis of Twocanoes Software, took all of us for a ride into the world of this technology and shared use cases and examples of what they, among others, are accomplishing with iBeacons. We also see the importance of making new connections and having face-to-face conversations with like-minded mobility experts and the kind of innovation that stems from these interactions: During the conference, our technical team worked onsite with Reid on an impulse and managed to produce iBeacon capabilities available within our Mi-Forms mobile forms technology as a prototype! Call that rapid innovation! Interested in learning more? Contact Gautham Pandiyan, VP of Sales & Marketing at Mi-Co.

 

6. Mobility Success Story with Business Imaging Systems (BIS)

BISBlog

This year, Mike King from our partner organization BIS, shared a few mobility success stories that they've been a part of while helping companies implement Mi-Forms technology. He gave a high-level overview of each story, including details about each company--example workflows, number of users, issues they were trying to solve--as well as their mobility journey and the results they've experienced since switching from a paper process to a mobile data solution.

 

7. Mobile App Workshop

MobileAppWorkshopBlog

Our interactive Mobile App workshop and challenge was a fun way to combine everyone’s mobility expertise for an exciting contest to see who could come up with the best enterprise app idea. All the ideas were excellent, which made choosing a winner very challenging. Ultimately, the app idea eTrain for Government HR professionals—an easy-to-use mobile training program, was decided as the winner. “WOOT WOOT!”

 

8. Microsoft Azure Government

MSFTAzureGovBlog

For the Government agencies out there, Microsoft Azure Government opens great opportunities for enterprise mobility within the Government space. Built to meet the many security, compliance and regulatory requirements in place in most government agencies, the Microsoft Azure Government provides a cloud-based hosting solution that these agencies are approved to use that was previously not available to them.

A huge thanks to Doug Edwards and Jeff Rogers of the Virginia Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services for sharing their experience implementing Mi-Forms technology to replace their previously paper-based inspection processes. Doug outlined their mobility journey from how they budgeted for the project to why they chose Mi-Forms (giving us a great visual of how much paper they were previously using, which was ~40,000 pieces of paper annually), as well as their mobile form requirements, the challenges they faced with advice for how they overcame them, and the results they've experienced since switching to a mobile data solution.
