New Mobile App Platform To Provide Paperless Workflows

Built Specifically With Ease-of-Use & Maximum Workforce User Adoption In Mind

Durham, N.C. – Mi-Corporation today announced the worldwide release of Mi-Apps, a robust, flexible business app built for enterprise organizations that digitizes and streamlines mission critical business processes.

Mi-Apps enables organizations to eliminate paper and provide employees with more efficient mobile app-based processes, empowering them to accomplish more with less, achieve quicker, cleaner data reporting and invoicing, and provide better customer service.

“The benefits that organizations have gained from mobile business technologies speak for themselves,” said Greg Clary, CEO & Co-Founder, Mi-Corporation.

“We’ve worked with businesses to eliminate paper and mobilize processes for more than 15 years and have heard the same complaint over and over again, from all kinds of businesses: paper is inefficient, redundant and error prone, but due to lack of budget, stakeholder buy-in and a struggle with user adoption—no realistic solution has been implemented. With these savvy, forward thinking business leaders in mind, we created Mi-Apps to be scalable, flexible and easy-to-use, to enable organizations to overcome these kinds of hurdles,” said Clary.

Mi-Apps is extremely flexible and can be used for any data collection process, with the most common use cases comprising inspections, sales order entry, and time reporting for workforce accountability.

The types of benefits that Mi-Corporation customers have experienced from mobilizing their data collection processes include:

  • Substantial cost and time savings ($675,000/year in one example)
  • Quicker business cycles (80% fewer steps in one example)
  • New revenue streams (11% higher profit margins in one example)
  • Increased accuracy and accountability (100x more accurate data in one example)
  • Workforce and asset management with real-time insight into business data (same day reporting versus a four-week lag in one example)
  • Happier employees and customers, among other benefits

Mi-Apps gives in-the-field, offline access to enterprise database information, collects rich data (barcodes, photos, voice, GPS coordinates, signatures and more) and handles 100% of enterprise organizations’ complex mobile form & workflow needs, including business rules, routing and approval steps, user management, integration, and data security. Additionally, Mi-Apps can be hosted on-premise or in the secure Microsoft Azure Government or Azure Commercial Cloud, which takes the burden off of IT departments and allows for faster app deployments.

With a passion for making a positive impact on the world with technology, Mi-Corporation leverages strategic partnerships with leading organizations including but not limited to Esri, Intel, Panasonic, Samsung, Xplore Technologies, Anoto, and Microsoft—and was named Microsoft’s 2015 Government: Public Sector Partner of the Year.

Colorado Dept. of Water Resources Selects Mi-Forms to Automate Field Inspections

Colorado Department of Water Resources Selects Mi-Forms

Colorado Department of Water Resources Selects Mi-Forms

Paper and electronic forms to be optimized for use on mobile devices for use in the dam inspections.

DURHAM, NC, and Denver, CO– Mi-Corporation, the Mobile Information Corporation, today announced that it was selected by Colorado Department of Water Resources (Denver, CO) to provide an enterprise inspection software platform with its Mi-Forms mobile forms software. The project entails evaluating the platforms ability to digitize paper and electronic forms used in the dam inspection.

 Each day inspectors from the Colorado Department of Water Resources evaluate the structural stability of the dams throughout the state, of which there are over 1,900. During each visit, inspectors record information such as which elements of the dam are not up to code and what needs to be done to fix these issues.

Under the current system, inspectors either take notes in a field book or bring paper forms to the inspection site. Many times, these paper forms get lost, wet, dirty, or ripped. Upon completing the paper form by hand, the inspector will enter the data into a database once back in the office and transmit it to the branch chief via email. This process was susceptible to data inaccuracies, and delays in data recording. With the “inspection forms automation” provided by Mi-Forms mobile data capture software, this process may change.

Functionality Requirements

The forms platform was required to support mobile data collection and deliver the ability to convert the existing paper forms into mobile forms that could be filled out on a tablet device and handle data entry via handwriting recognition and, optionally, speech to text recognition. The software will also provide workflow management by routing forms to a supervisor who will review the forms for accuracy and then either approve or deny the form.

 Colorado Department of Water Resources selected Mi-Forms mobile forms software due to its ability to meet the project’s core requirements – automating processes, providing handwriting functionality, and integrating forms rules. Just as important was the ease with which remote workers or field inspectors could access the daily status report form to capture, store, and manage inspection and comment history, in a way that allows them to select specific projects and date ranges from which to view comments.

Accurate reporting of details is essential to project planning. The new system works whether the inspector is on or offline and will store the daily status report data in a relational database allowing the department to export the data to a “project tracking” system on a daily basis. The new solution will export the data from the daily status report and save the file on a network file share when the inspection supervisor approves the report. At the completion of a project, the system will generate a PDF report containing the inspection history from the daily reports.

Additional requirements for the forms automation solution included:

  • Offline use of forms where an Internet connection is required only for data transfer to the database for handoff to “project tracking”
  • Ability to capture and store job site pictures and signatures
  • Ability to retrieve “header” information such as site address, contractor name, project number, inspector assigned, etc.
  • An easy-to-use interface that includes a “home page” that gives the inspector the ability to select specific forms to complete
  • Configuration of forms to include drop-down boxes, mandatory fields and date pickers

 According to Mi-Corporation’s VP of Sales & Marketing, Gautham Pandiyan, “The ability to meet the requirements of the Colorado Department of Water Resources demonstrates our ability to deliver the most flexible, robust technology that meets the unique needs of our customers who rely on the accurate collection, management, and filling of mobile forms & apps on Tablets even in remote disconnected areas.”

Transport for London Purchases Enterprise-Wide Mobile Forms License Following Successful Phase 1 Project

Transport for London Bus

Transport for London Bus

>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!
