Why NestForms? A Truly Efficient Mobile Form App

NestForms Mobile Form app is Perfect for Offline Surveys

The NestForms mobile form app is used while working offline in many professions worldwide. In the following case study you can see why our offline survey app is suitable for working in areas with limited or no connectivity:

“The day had finally arrived for my research expedition that would take me deep into the heart of a remote village. 

As a seasoned researcher, I relied heavily on surveys to gather data and insights. However, there was one big catch – this village had limited internet connectivity. How was I going to collect data for my study without a reliable internet connection?

Fortunately, I had recently discovered a game-changing solution: offline survey apps. These innovative mobile form apps allowed researchers like me to collect data even without an internet connection. One such app that had caught my attention was NestForms”.

A Mobile Form app for other businesses and organisations

NestForms is also used in many other professions aside from humanitarian work in the field. Our mobile form app can be used for real estate research or as a land survey app. The platform is perfect for use as a quality control checklist app.

Offline survey apps are a ground breaking solution for researchers, marketers, and many other industries such as agriculture or agronomy. They offer a reliable and efficient way to collect data in areas with poor or no internet connection. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of using offline survey apps and how they can revolutionise the way we collect data.

The NestForms mobile form app

1. Uninterrupted data collection:

One of the biggest advantages of offline survey apps is the ability to collect data even in areas with no internet connectivity. This would make them perfect for many businesses and industries engaged mainly in outdoor activities worldwide. Other organisations working offline include the offshore fishing industry, nature or environmental studies, damage and incident assessment or asset management. As you can see NestForms offline surveys offer up a totally different perspective when collecting data in the field, whether you are working in a remote location or perhaps in a crowded city centre. 

2. Increased accessibility:

Offline survey apps also increase accessibility to surveys, as they can easily be deployed on iOS and Android smart devices. Just for your information, NestForms also has a Public forms feature meaning that surveys can also be carried out through an online browser and not via the app.

3. Real-time data synchronisation:

One of the common concerns with offline data collection is the delay in syncing the collected data. However, offline survey apps like NestForms offer real-time data synchronisation. This means that once an internet connection is available, the collected data is automatically synced and can be accessed immediately. This is perfect for organisations working in the many professions as mentioned earlier.

You could be collecting data on assets in transit in remote locations. It might be the case when working on a construction site, connectivity is patchy at best. A Health and Safety official will carry out surveys in far flung locations and the ability to work offline means that any inspections and audits can be carried out uninterrupted.

4. Data security:

Offline survey apps prioritise data security, ensuring that the collected information is protected securely. They often use encryption protocols to safeguard sensitive data, such as personal information or confidential business data.

Data security is an important aspect when collecting sensitive data for many organisations in today's operational business dealings. With the NestForms mobile form app data security is of the utmost importance and provides a robust privacy policy to allay any concerns you might harbour.

5. Customisable survey forms:

The NestForms offline survey app allows researchers to create customisable survey forms tailored to their requirements. These forms can include various component types, such as Multiple-answer, Single answer and Dropdown menus. A Number component allows responders to include any numerical data and would also allow for the inclusion of rating scales. Additionally, researchers can add multimedia elements like Images and Audio to enhance the survey experience.

Other features allow for the insertion of QR and barcodes and GPS location. Forms can be tailored to include Skip logic, enhancing the flow of the survey. With a Signature component a cleaning company, for example, can provide a proof of work report that has been digitally signed off on location.

There are many Exporting options to allow you to work with your data outside of NestForms.


Offline surveys have revolutionised the way we collect data. Survey apps, such as NestForms, offer a viable solution for researchers and businesses seeking to collect data in areas with limited internet connectivity.

They provide uninterrupted data collection, increased accessibility, real-time data synchronisation, data security, and customisable survey forms. Mobile form apps have become an indispensable tool for many organisations and businesses who are required to carry out offline surveys in various locations.
