Formstack’ Latest Add-On and Mobile App Provides Access to Offline Form Submissions, Kiosk Mode
Formstack, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) company with a mission to empower its users through simple and elegant tools that remove the complexity from everyday business processes, announced an offline form data capture add-on powered by Formstack Go, a new mobile app for iOS and Android.
Formstack is a versatile online form solution that streamlines processes for capturing and managing information.
Formstack’s Offline Forms add-on allows users to capture form data without a live internet connection, storing the data locally on the device and uploading it to the cloud once a connection is available. This capability gives customers in highly mobile fields—such as sales, construction, and manufacturing—a way to capture information digitally, reducing reliance on paper forms and manual data entry.
“Mobile devices bridge the gap between the portability of pen and paper and the capability of enterprise-grade desktop computers, so it’s no surprise customers have appreciated accessibility to this highly requested feature,” said Chris Byers, CEO of Formstack.
Chris added, “Our Offline Forms add-on allows users to harness the power and flexibility of modern mobile devices to do real work in remote locations where internet connectivity may still be difficult.”
Data submitted via Formstack Go syncs between apps locally and automatically route to the necessary location once an internet connection is established. Offline Forms also retain third-party web app integrations such as Salesforce, Quickbooks and Zendesk, as well as workflow automation processes.
In addition to accessing forms offline, Formstack Go allows users to lock a device into a limited kiosk mode. Available in both vertical and horizontal orientations, the new setting allows users to continually submit a form without someone having to navigate back to the beginning of the form or exiting the app, making it ideal for lead capture and surveys at exhibit booths and trade shows.
With Formstack, businesses and teams of all types and sizes can easily create and use online forms to automate repetitive business processes and gain rich insights. People can embed forms directly onto their websites and social media profiles to capture leads, as well as use online forms to collect payments, gather feedback, and streamline internal workflows. This flexibility enables organizations to simplify their data collection while expanding their resources.
