Offline Mobile Forms for Data Collection using iPad & Android tablets

As it’s known, "data is the new oil" since most of the industries and organizations depend on data that helps them make quick decisions & conclusions based on the information collected. Companies need to understand & map their customers’ needs with more accurate statistics, details and more profound insights, this is why companies tend for surveys to regularly collect real-time and updated data that help them in understanding the target market & complete their daily data collection tasks using smartphones, iPad or Android tablets.

Collecting data could be trickier using the traditional paper-based system as the workers complete tasks and fill out forms, while in the field that consists of a clipboard, pen & paper. In this method, data is collected manually on a form and brought to the office where all the data are fed to the computer in order to provide context and meaning to the collected data. This method of collecting data can lead to problems like data loss, inaccuracy, the time taken to complete the data collection task could hamper the efforts of even the best teams.

With the wide use of smartphones, iPad & Android tablets organizations have found a new and better method for collecting data using mobile forms that can be created using form creator software without any technical knowledge. Mobile forms are applications designed for smartphones and tablets that allow for the creation and submission of forms with multiple types of form data. By moving from paper to mobile, organizations are able to benefit from a robust data collection platform that is faster, affordable, higher quality and easy to retrieve the collected data at any given point of time.

Some organizations stick to the paper-based documents rather than switching to mobile forms is because of this misconception that mobile forms only work when the device has an active internet connection. Which is untrue, no matter how remote the area is, mobile forms are improving business efficiency by collecting data from any location.
