Eforms, electronic forms or digital forms, whatever you call them, they can really benefit your business. In today’s professional environment, efficiency is key. Businesses are looking to eliminate unnecessary overheads and streamline their processes. Going digital is no longer a luxury, but a necessity.


What are Digital Forms?

They are simply a digital version of the standard paper-based forms you and your teams have been using for years. There are multiple types of forms your business might use including, Risk Assessments, Method Statements, Vehicle Checks etc. For businesses managing a mobile workforce, using digital versions of your standard forms helps to consolidate your job information in one place and provide your clients with an instant record of any work you complete. For compliance purposes alone, it’s a no-brainer.


What Are The Benefits of Using Digital Forms?


1. Centralised Data

Forms are completed by your mobile workforce, signed off by your client and automatically stored within the WorkPal system. This makes accessing the information much easier and faster than operating with paper forms.

2. Compliance

Auditing is always a stressful time for businesses. Locating the correct information and making sure it is all in order can be almost impossible when your staff have to pick through filing cabinets. With WorkPal there is a full, easy accessible paper trail. WorkPal’s digital forms ensure all required information is completed by engineers through mandatory fields.

3. Ease of Use

Whether your business has tech-savvy engineers or not, our forms are designed to be easy to use for all levels.

4. Clear Information

How often have your office staff received paper forms back with illegible handwriting? Too often we would guess. By going digital, this issue is erased and fewer mistakes are made through miscommunication and your reporting is more accurate.
