In today's digital age, most businesses are shifting towards mobile-based solutions to streamline their operations and increase efficiency. One such solution is to use a mobile form app, these apps are becoming increasingly popular among businesses of all sizes. By replacing traditional paper-based forms with digital mobile forms, businesses can save time, reduce costs, and improve data accuracy.

A mobile form could be used by a Site Survey Inspector. These are usually completed by a site manager who works on the move and using a mobile form app can be of great use as opposed to using paper based methods. Larger devices are also harder to carry around. For an example of an onsite form check out our Construction Site Survey form template.

Let's explore the benefits of offline surveys or mobile forms and how NestForms can help businesses improve their data collection processes. So, whether you're a small company or a large enterprise, read on to discover the benefits of a good mobile form app and how it can transform your business operations.

Advantages of using mobile forms

Mobile forms offer several advantages over traditional paper-based forms. First and foremost, mobile forms are more convenient. When using a mobile form app, you can collect data from anywhere, at any time, and on any iOS and Android smart devices. We also provide support for Amazon devices and a webfill version is available. 

Another advantage of mobile forms is that they are more accurate. With paper forms, there is always room for error, whether it's incomplete or illegible handwriting or the loss or damage of forms. With mobile forms, you can ensure that all the data is precise and consistent, and you can easily access and assess the data.

Mobile forms are also more cost-effective. With paper-based forms, you have to spend money on printing, storage, and transportation. With mobile forms, you can save money on printing and storage costs, and you can also reduce the time and cost of transportation, as you can collect data from anywhere in the world.


How to use NestForms for data collection

When it comes to choosing a mobile form app, there are several features that you should look for. First and foremost, the form builder should be easy to use and navigate. It should have a simple and intuitive interface that allows you a responder to, edit, and answer forms quickly and easily. The NestForms offline mobile survey app has a convenient component drag and drop functionality allowing an administrator to complete and share forms quickly to responders in the field. Once shared, a responder on the ground can start collecting data immediately without having to worry about losing a connection.

The app should also offer a range of customisation options so you can create forms that fit your specific requirements. This includes the ability to add Images, Text, Numerical data, GPS coordinates, Barcodes and many other helpful features as well as the ability to customise the layout and design of your forms and reports. The Custom PDF feature within our mobile form app can assist with well organised and Branded reports.

Another important feature of a good mobile form app is the ability to collect data offline. This means that you can collect data even when you are not connected to the internet and the data will be automatically synced to the cloud when you reconnect. Working offline is perfect for industries, businesses and companies who might be carrying out surveys and inspections outdoors and in remote locations. As an example check out our Fisheries Survey template, or Tree Surgeon checklist.

NestForms also has a feature to allow you to share your form with another responder or colleague giving them extra administrative rights. You can share form edit and approval response permissions  for specific forms. Administrator Form Share also allows you to share these rights within a group.
