Going Paperless Can Help You Effectively Manage Your Mobile Workforce
Gone are the days when everything had to be written on paper. Today, the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend has introduced smart phones and tablets into the workflow. Your mobile workforce can now bring their iPhones or iPads, any Android or Windows Phone 8 device into their field work and use their gadgets to document everything from start to finish. All you have to do is send them their job orders in smart forms and watch as they populate your database with information from customers in the field. Now you will know what everyone is doing, when and where they are working and the results of their efforts.
Field Work Monitoring Simplified
Using Formitize, you can access paperless forms used by your mobile workforce in the field to monitor their daily activities. Checking up on your employees is now quick and easy; all it takes is a few clicks of a button. The time and date stamp makes it easy to track their activities in the field. Every time they complete a job, you get notified and can open and access the job in the app’s management portal. Instant form validation provides instant feedback from your mobile workforce so you’re always in the loop no matter where you are. This also gives you information from the field so you can provide advice, help or backup to your staff in the field.
Documentation is now super easy when you go paperless. Send work orders and jobs to any of your mobile workforce in the field and wait for them to complete the jobs and then generate and send the finished paperless reports to you in real time. That’s fast and accurate reporting right at your fingertips. It’s now so much easier for your field agents to submit their reports. They no longer have to wait til the end of the day or week to send their reports. As long as they have their smartphone or tablet with them, they can access the app and create new reports using the information they had recently collected.
The best thing about going paperless is the speed and accuracy of collecting data. No more delays or mistakes, everything is done in real time and errors can be changed instantly. No more waiting around for your mobile workforce to submit their reports. Using smartphones and tablets, they can send in their paperless reports immediately after their job is done. This makes monitoring their work so much easier because all the required information is written in digital forms that you can open and update anytime, anywhere.
