Top 3 Reasons to Utilize Mobile Forms and the Best Ways to Go Mobile

Top 3 Reasons to Utilize Mobile Forms and the Best Ways to Go MobileHave you ever thought about how much is paper actually costing you? Industry research firm Gartner, Inc., estimates that as much as 3% of a company’s revenue is spent on paper, printing, filing, and the costs to store and maintain files of information. Until recently alternatives to paper forms were either unavailable or too expensive. However, now everything has changed dramatically and a company of any size and revenue can turn to a paperless workflow with smart, agile, and powerful digital solutions.

Here are the top 3 reasons to replace paper forms with digital forms.

Time saving and increase in productivity

Paperwork results in a loss of productivity. For companies with employees who work in the field, this means they have to constantly get back to the office for data processing and reporting. Also, paper forms take a long time to complete. These are a waste of time. The pre-made mobile forms require a few minutes to be filled in anywhere and at any time. Mobile apps with mobile forms instantly put data into your office employees’ and managers’ hands. This significantly saves time, increases efficiency and productivity.

Data reliability and elimination of errors

Paper forms are filled in by hand, increasing the chance of human error. They contain illegible handwriting, missed fields, and inaccuracies. Moreover, paper forms are unreliable and can be easily damaged, and lost. Mobile forms with pre-made fields can be filled in in a few clicks which virtually eliminates errors. Completed forms can be safely stored in the app, in the cloud, etc.

Decline of COVID-19 infection risks

We continue to live in the COVID-19 pandemic. The infection is primarily spread from person to person by small droplets, but also by contacting contaminated surfaces. This way, work with paper documents causes significant risk. People constantly transfer paper files that may contain the virus as well as they have to visit offices and contact face to face. Using mobile apps and mobile forms reduces these risks. It helps maintain the safety and health of employees, customers, and keep businesses open.

The best ways to go mobile from Snappii

If you are still drowning in paper, Snappii is your saving chance. We offer the fastest and easiest way to go digital without a huge investment of money. The Snappii Mobile Forms app already contains 100+ pre-made mobile form templates for plenty of activities.

How to Keep Distancing While Working on Your Workplace

How to Keep Distancing While Working on Your WorkplaceWherein is the greatest risk?

COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact for some period. This way, limiting face-to-face contacts and meetings is the best way to reduce the spread of Coronavirus disease. However, not all companies can move to remote work and people are forced to visit workplaces and interact with each other somehow. In this difficult situation, mobile apps come to the rescue.

The benefits of mobile apps and mobile forms

Thanks to mobile apps, many operations with data can be made remotely without any face-to-face contacts. For example, creation estimates, work orders, invoices, reports, various inspection forms, and more. Mobile forms allow users to collect all necessary information, instantly process it on a mobile device, and send it via email and other ways. The completed mobile forms are convenient to store. Also, all employees have constant access to any data.

Even more than safety

Do you know that work with paper-based documentation provides risks of COVID-19 infection since the infection is also spread by contacting contaminated surfaces and paper is one of such surfaces? Learn more about it here. In addition to safety, mobile apps have a positive impact on the workflow.
