How to Collect Data On the Go Using FormAssembly Mobile

Last Updated on May 12, 2023 by Rakesh Gupta

If you’ve ever needed to collect data while in the field, you know how challenging it can be. Either you’re stuck keeping track of endless paper forms or you have to bring a laptop wherever you go. Even if you have a tablet, it’s not always the most convenient. And this doesn’t even address what happens when there’s no Wi-Fi or you need to gather more sensitive information, such as credit card or health data. If you need a better solution, you may benefit from FormAssembly Mobile, the easy-to-use mobile app for Android and iOS that makes data collection on the go easy and secure.

Simplifying On-the-Go Data Collection

FormAssembly Mobile is the powerful companion app to FormAssembly’s secure data collection platform for enterprise organizations. Any web forms and connectors (such as to PayPal or Salesforce) built in the platform can be accessed on FormAssembly’s mobile app for easy data collection on the go. Within the app, users have the ability to access and submit forms as well as view form responses. They can also easily sort and search within the active forms list. With the ease and simplicity of a mobile device, users can quickly complete forms, including uploading attachments such as images and files, while out in the field.

Common FormAssembly Mobile use cases:

  • Trade-shows
  • Campus surveys
  • Email signups
  • Remote check-ins
  • Event registrations

Maintaining Security While Out of Office

Today, most people expect that their data will stay secure once collected, even if that data doesn’t include sensitive information, like a social security number.

FormAssembly Mobile provides both SAML login and biometric login with face ID and fingerprint recognition. Biometric authentication is not required to access the app but provides an additional layer of security and peace of mind when collecting data while users are out of the office.

Collecting Data, Even Without WiFi

If you know that you’ll need to collect data in locations without WiFi capabilities, FormAssembly Mobile is a great alternative to paper forms when there is no internet. Users simply need to download the forms they want to access offline to their mobile device.

Even without internet or cellular data access, these forms can be filled and submitted as usual, with responses cached locally. Once a user is back online, they can sync form responses and never have to worry about lost data due to internet issues.

The Benefits of FormAssembly’s Platform and Mobile App

FormAssembly offers a no-code, form-based data collection solution for gathering data, streamlining workflows, and improving efficiency. The FormAssembly platform offers robust integration to Salesforce and the most advanced security, compliance, and privacy capabilities such as HIPAA, GDPR, GLBA, and more. FormAssembly helps enterprise organizations focused on security and compliance to become better stewards of the data entrusted to them.

By combining FormAssembly’s powerful platform with their secure mobile app, users have a streamlined way to collect data no matter where they are — all with uncompromising security and reliable offline capabilities.
