Electricians are raising productivity by switching to electronic mobile forms
The intricate field of electrical work, whether it’s for residential, commercial or institutional, demands strict procedures and accurate information. It’s certainly not an exaggeration to say that a particular job can be a matter of life or death. That’s why more and more electrical firms are switching to mobile forms to improve business processes.
Regardless of electrician organisation size, mobile forms represent a more precise and rapid way of collecting, submitting and analysing key job site data. Gone are the days of an electrician gripping a clipboard full of paper, with a pencil behind his ear. Today, tablets and smartphones can handle and process field data input.
Take the case of Chicago’s Rex Electric, a large electrical firm that realised paper forms were no longer acceptable in today’s fast-paced world of business. Check out their video story below.
As you can see, switching to mobile forms can significantly raise productivity and cut costs. By eliminating unnecessary trips to the office to pick up or hand in forms from the field (mobile forms can be dispatched to users devices in the field, filled out and instantly submitted back to the office), a whole range business costs are now avoided (ex. fuel costs, paper and ink charges, etc).
In addition, with mobile forms, electricians are also able to raise their ability to document on-site information. Key mobile form features such as photo capture and sketch pad (the ability to denote on an image and have it automatically integrated into the form) are giving office managers invaluable field intel that previously would have required their own trips to the job site.
So whether it’s an electrical work order, an electrical hazard form or a simple inspection checklist, they’re all optimally filled out using a mobile form solution.
