Fillable PDFs or Mobile Forms?

Jul 30, 2020


Let’s be honest, paper doesn’t cut it anymore. The industry realizes this more as the world shifts to data-driven solutions and the increased demand to solve complex problems. Companies have grown from paper to fillable PDFs but are realizing they need more.

FormsPro is a mobile application created to improve the safety and work lives of field service personnel.

Fillable PDFs or FormsPro?

Fillable PDFs can seem like a good option for companies (it’s hard to say no to the cost), but your team is missing out on beneficial features that can increase job safety, productivity, and revenue. When you add a mobile forms application to your business solution or use it as a stand-alone solution, you are adding to the safety of your field service personnel.

With FormsPro, your team can work online or offline, submit completed forms to your office, and send forms to your customers.


It’s true, both PDFs and FormsPro have a simple signature solution, but that is all you can accomplish on a PDF. With FormsPro, you can utilize pre-filled fields, time and date stamps, schedule and dispatch, and enhance productivity by submitting the data you need.


By adding images in FormsPro to your specific form, you can streamline and document necessary changes, issues addressed, and if the project has been completed.


With FormsPro, you can collect data through your forms to create reports and dashboards, which increases safety for your technicians.
