How Mobile Forms Are Tied To Our Business Process?
QR Mobile Data is more than a collection of the mobile forms and checklists. It is a complete solution that links together business objects, processes, workflow and forms for mobile data collection.
Everything that you are working with: assets, equipment, properties, product batches, employees, clients, etc. are business objects. When an employee fills out a mobile form or checklist, he scans a QR code,
barcode or NFC tag on the business object to identify it. All data collected via mobile forms are tied to the scanned objects.
You can always access a complete records history for each business object, on the computer or on the smartphone by scanning QR code.
You can also (optionally) link mobile forms to the workflow steps. If you do, your employees will be prompted to fill out the right mobile form(s) on each process step.
You get a complete workflow history report with dates, employees and collected data.
What Happens With The Data Collected Via Mobile Forms?
Data collected via the mobile forms are sent to the centralized cloud location in real time. All authorized users have an immediatele access to the collected data, on the mobile
devices in the field and computers in the office, and can act on this information without delay.
Your employees can collect data offline in the areas with no connection, and submit
all records to the cloud at once as soon as connection becomes available.
