At Mi-Corporation we often hear about the many headaches organizations face when they’re still using paper forms, or first generation electronic tools, for their mission critical inspection processes. Those headaches include missing forms, incomplete forms, illegible forms, and a whole laundry list of repercussions that inefficient data collection methods bring to the forefront. However, the greatest data collection challenge (and often the expensive one) that organizations encounter is the need to prove compliance in order to avoid fines or litigation.
Anything less than stellar data capture and management leads to a high cost of compliance.
Another challenge with paper forms is the endless hours inspectors must spend compiling all the different data that’s been collected manually enter it into a backend system. This impacts management as well, since they have to wait for inspection data to make its way into backend systems before any billing or reporting can happen.
Finally, we hear a lot about the paper-based inspection taking longer than necessary, resulting in overall inefficiency among the mobile workforce. Organizations that provide these inspections and other services to customers are especially concerned that their competitors who have already embraced mobile data capture are able to provide better, faster, more professional services than they are.
These organizations want to go mobile but may have a few concerns:
- Can I create custom forms that will meet all my needs?
- Will creating these forms be too difficult or take too long?
- Will my workforce use the forms?
