Also, you can combine all the information collected through mobile apps with the business system.

All these information can then be integrated hence minimize the cost of data entry. Also, after the information is incorporated, it is easier to share it with the business team members.
Collection of better information
With paper forms, there are some restrictions, for example, media data cannot be captured. There are also errors that are likely to occur like due to the employees’ poor handwriting which can lead to the collection of wrong information. The mobile app ensures that all the information is collect. Also, you can take the photos and capture clients’ signature which raises the bar for field work.
Better workers management and work visibility
If your business has a mobile workforce, there can be struggles trying to supervise what the workers are doing at their different workstations and if they are employing their full potential. Paper forms make this problem harder since it could take some days before a mobile worker gets back to the office. Thus it takes long to file the paperwork and enter the project’s information in the system. With the mobile app, you increase visibility in the workforce productivity since if you rely on mobile workers; you only need to use tracking cards when they are in the field. Using traditional cards can be challenging, but if you already have a time card mobile app, you can have an automatic time entry to enhance accuracy. Accuracy means few problems and also, little time is required to track the workers.
If your business involves field workers, it is not easy to track how many jobs they do in a day because paperwork can be time consuming and expensive. Moreover, some of the papers get damaged before they are brought to the office for entry, and at times information is filled incorrectly. Mobile forms eliminate the problem since everything enters the system automatically.
