Wickford Pty Ltd Leverages iFormBuilder and iPad for Quality Assurance

in Business (E)

[prMac.com] Herndon, Virginia - When Wickford PTY LTD in Queensland, Australia was contracted to conduct over 2000 Technical Quality assurance inspections, they needed a mobile data collection software that was easy, quick to the field, reliable, and was able to record and store data even when network service was unavailable. They also needed their inspection forms to be uniform, precise and allow special data inputs including photo and signature capture. And they needed it up and running in less than 30 days. They turned to iFormBuilder.

"The emphasis of the quality assurance program was rapid communication of adverse findings, data and workflow transparency, and high data quality," said Ben Doss, who consulted on Wickford PYT LTD's data collection. "A big part of it as well was the relative inexperience of the workers."

On average, field staff only received two hours training to allow them to effectively use the iPad and iFormbuilder software. "I was initially impressed with how easy it was to create and deploy a form to my ipad," said Doss. "Simple data collection was incredibly easy to set up. What impressed me the most was how easy if was to develop advanced forms."

The software also needed to be compatible with Wickford's ISO9001 Quality Management System-not an easy task for a mobile platform. "We tried a variety of ad-hoc solutions, first with email forms, then with online form building from the iPad. But neither could meet our security and offline collection needs," said Doss. "So, we when we found iFormBuilder, we were delighted at its ease of use and security features that matched the strict needs of the project."

With iFormBuilder, Wickford was able to achieve a better than 90% quality assurance pass rate and with iForm's easy skip-logic, they were able to increase their data collection efficiency. Because field supervisors were able to see data real-time, when problems arose with safety concerns, action was taken immediately, instead of days later with paper forms. Wickford's safety record on the project and quick implementation is why we say killing clipboards can save time, money and, for Wickford PTY LTD, lives.
