In the competitive world of construction, presenting prospective clients with professional, compelling proposals is of the utmost importance. Unfortunately, when relying on paper forms to communicate a project’s scope and figures, critical details are often miscommunicated due to human error, missing data and slow processing times. These obstacles are unprofessional and costly, hindering a business’ ability to secure and retain business.
By digitizing your forms collection, a vast majority of the obstacles presented by manual data collection can be easily remedied. For example, digital build proposals can be completed without fear of illegible handwriting, coffee spills or weather damage. Implementing mobile forms and digital data collection within your bidding process grants your team endless advantages. Here are five ways mobile forms will level-up your contraction build bidding:

This means that repeat customers remain familiar with your forms, while benefiting from digital features. Using mobile forms also allows your team to more easily standardize form Templates, simplifying work with large businesses and government agencies.
Provide highly accurate figures

Automate sharing to provide unmatched transparency and communication, from day one
