Challenge
North American Pipeline Inspection needed a solution to alleviate their burdensome administrative demands, as well as expedite data processing and pipeline inspections. Originally relying upon paper forms and books to capture business-critical field data resulted in a difficult workflow for field teams, who operate in remote areas and poor weather conditions. This process was also burdensome for back-office administrative personnel. Paper forms delivered from the field needed to be rekeyed into spreadsheets, wasting significant time and requiring the staffing of administrative teams.

Solution
North American Pipeline Inspection now digitizes and fills out forms using GoFormz, allowing users to leverage automated processing, new data types (like GPS) and real-time reporting. Now, with mobile forms, as soon as a form is completed, collected data is available for review and processing immediately – reducing administrative demands and eliminating the need for strictly ‘admin’ personnel.
