Easy to configure, create forms, create users, create roles, give access, feeding data, API

Signing up the member without using paper form. That avoid the data re-entry.

A critical business tool!

ProntoForms revolutionized the day to day operations of the business as my vision was and is to go paperless in operating the business. We created about 10 forms that take the place of paper logbooks in the restaurants. Leadership could access a form and input data which integrated with a Google Sheet, creating a digital and searchable logbook!

There isn't many positives I can convey. I have developed safety audits for several companies, using both Predictive Solutions and iAuditor, both of which I prefer. Pronto Forms was a program that our parent company went to and wanted to be consistent and pushed it out to all of it's subsidiary companies; so I had no choice. Creating the form was no problem, however we aren't a company that is at a site for multiple months at a time, we may only be at a project for 2-3 days, and we are constantly moving employees around, which means every time you do this, you have to update your form, then ensure all the users sync the data for it to show up before they use it again. When trying to use the data, it's pointless. You enter data on the Pronto Forms site, then you have to go to a different website to get your data. Predictive Solutions is obviously the Cadillac of Safety auditing software, the one fault with them I have is that if you have to make changes, it isn't as easy as making the changes yourself, you send them into your contact for them to make the changes. Pronto Forms gives you that freedom, I will give them that, but still, as the administrator of these forms as well as having my main job function, unless you are a company that hires someone specifically to manage the Pronto Forms entry and collection, I would steer clear. As soon as our contract is up, we will be going back to iAuditor, which is far less expensive, allows up to three user devices per user (being an admin, I have to change devices regularly, and each time, it locks me out of the other device I am using). I hate giving a company a bad review, but what we were sold on and what the final product was, is light years away from each other.

Signing up the member without using paper form. That avoid the data re-entry.

Pros

I have been supporting the ProntoForms Application from 4 years. All features are very easy to use and manage. All features are very effective. Users iPad might have different forms. Even a forms that has 7 pages, no issue at all. I worked on API to push data for the forms into iPad. Users submit the records and will back to the server to automatic feed into database. Customize whole cycle was great and success. Creating Users, Creating roles, security access, creating form space and forms are very easy. All features to create form are there. Customize forms can be create easily.

Cons

As a software engineer, I don't see any cons on this application. But I see that a user can use either iPad or iPhone. One user cannot use both. If user want to use both there will be two license and two user. If a user can use at least two devices from same license and same user name that will great.

Pros

I love how simple it was to quickly create a form. Even a person that has not had time to learn Pronto forms can complete a new functional form in minutes. The user interface is outstanding.

Cons

I think it is slightly overpriced compared to comparable Form apps. Better pricing structure for the smaller business <10 users would be nice.

Pros

It's really rather simple to create a file; If you only want to create a form and just plug and play without the need for continuous updates (of say foreman, employees, etc.) then it's a pretty decent program to use.

Cons

If you have to change data in files frequently, its a pain; the analytic statistics aren't even in the same program; If you have specific customization data needed, based on site, if you have more than five sites, it's horrible to find any use of this data.

Pros

That we can customize it to our needs. The flexibility and the technical advances of the way we can do things. Being able to incorporate signatures, pictures, calculations, geostamps and much, much more.

Cons

I can't think of anything that we don't like considering they take into consideration what we don't like and try to make it better for us.

Pros

We have enjoyed the dashboard interface and the app is user friendly. Their customer service is very helpful. Once the forms are created they are easy to launch. The App allows you to take photos and place them into any form. I would recommend this program.

Cons

The custom forms take a while to create, but once they are created they are easy to edit and make changes.

ProntoForms is a web-based platform that mobilizes business processes. The solution replaces paper forms with native apps running on smartphones and tablets, cutting down on the amount of paper logs and notebooks that field service workers use each day and paving the way for businesses to improve productivity and increase operational efficiencies.

Developed for virtually every industry—including home services, field services, construction, manufacturing, retail, legal, oil & gas, utilities, and healthcare, to name just a few—ProntoForms impacts businesses by collecting rich data, like customer information, signatures, and photographs, more quickly and more accurately. This information is submitted to front office staff in real time, which gives managers more data to use when making business decisions that impact the bottom line.

What is ProntoForms?

A mobile workflow solution for field service businesses, ProntoForms increases productivity, enhances service quality, optimizes performance, and manages compliance. Rather than storing information in paper logs and notebooks, operators that use ProntoForms can quickly generate and send PDF files to their teams from the jobsite, before they’ve even arrived back at the office.

When ProntoForms is deployed throughout several departments within an organization, the platform becomes a central business hub, with forms for mobilizing field equipment service reports, work orders, estimates, inspections, and injury reports. Vital work data is submitted through error-free forms, providing more insights to executives and ultimately improving the way companies operate.

Connecting data to cloud services can take this workflow up even one more notch, providing complete visibility into field performance with advanced analytics dashboards for management.

View and Send PDFs of Forms

ProntoForms Main Features

Signature, Picture & Barcode Capture

Using ProntoForms, field service workers can collect customer authorization signatures right on their mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets. Customers are able to sign forms on the device to signal that they’ve received and approved the appropriate goods or services.

In addition to collecting signatures through ProntoForms, you can also add images to your forms for quality assurance purposes. Attach an image of the item that was repaired to the invoice, for example, for verification and auditing. You can also scan QR codes and barcodes with your mobile device and include those elements in your forms, as well.

Capture Digital Signatures

Offline Form Functionality

Wi-Fi connections and mobile networks aren’t always available at remote locations, but the ProntoForms mobile app allows field teams to fill out forms offline with full functionality intact. This compares favorably to non-native, web-based forms that require continuous web access to function properly.

When you use ProntoForms to generate work orders, estimates, service reports, incident reports, and inspection forms, you can do so with or without an internet connection. Create and fill out your form using ProntoForm’s mobile app, select the recipient, and press “send”. ProntoForms will automatically send the form whenever your network is restored, which means you don’t have to go wandering around the job site looking for an internet connection in order send the forms you’ve filled out.

Access Business Forms Anytime

Dispatching

Driving back-and-forth between the office and the jobsite drains financial resources and wastes time for field service professionals. ProntoForms has a solution to this problem, providing an automated way for field users to dispatch forms as they’re signed, using an advanced web portal.

Dispatch forms, like work orders and invoices, from your office to the field with the ProntoForms Web Portal. Your field service workers will be able to fill in forms on the job site, and they can dispatch those forms back to your office instead of taking an extra trip back to the office between each appointment. Partially filled-in forms can be sent to individuals or groups. This saves valuable time in the field as the remote workers don’t have to fill out commonly used information over and over — like addresses, phone numbers etc.

Capture Critical Field Data

External Data Sources

Businesses that use ProntoForm’s data connections option are able to embed their business data into their mobile forms. The ProntoForms REST API provides users with fully-customizable integration capabilities.

ProntoForms is able to provide your field team with access to data from your office in real-time. This data—which might include things like customer information (from a connected CRM), pricing, or parts numbers (SKUs)—can be imported directly into ProntoForm’s mobile forms.

Connect to Cloud Services

ProntoForms Integrations

ProntoForms connects all office data and field data using a REST API. A few of the many applications that ProntoForms integrates with include Box, Citrix ShareFile, DropBox, Evernote, Facebook, Google Cloud Print, Google Drive, Google Sheets, MS Office 365, MS OneDrive, SafesForce, Sharepoint, Twitter, and ZenDesk.

ProntoForms Pricing

ProntoForms works on a monthly subscription basis, billed based on the number of users within an organization. Pricing starts at $30 per user, per month. Add-on services include deployment packages and analytics packages.

ProntoForms can be purchased either directly or through a mobile carrier at a discounted price.

  • Increases field service productivity
