Customer Story: NTL Pipelines

Even if we’re saving just an hour of productive time per day, per person… that’s a potential $20,000 a day in savings.

NTL Pipelines uses mobile forms to complete a pipeline project, laying blue pipe in an open field

Challenge
NTL Pipelines needed a more efficient means of collecting data on job sites and delivering it to the office for processing and review. With teams working in remote areas, NTL Pipelines needed a digital solution that would be both fully functional offline, and easy for their teams to learn to use.

Solution
NTL Pipelines used GoFormz to digitize their forms, routing, and record-keeping. Leveraging Automated Workflows and the Box integration, NTL’s completed forms can now be instantly routed to supervisors for review and authorization, and centrally stored within Box folders. Mobile forms can be completed offline, with data uploaded and immediately accessible once a signal becomes available – expediting data processing and simplifying data collection for mobile teams and drivers.
