New eBook: 7 Reasons Why Smart Mobile Forms Are Better Than Fillable PDFs.

Forrester Research recently forecasted that by 2018, there will be 156 million tablets being used by businesses. Companies are working to effectively support their mobile workforce, driving a movement to replace the many paper forms they use with electronic versions.

Of the 50 billion PDFs that were opened in the past year, many were fillable PDFs that businesses used to capture form data. However, replacing paper forms with fillable PDFs is limited and error prone, and results in electronic documents that are simply static, isolated records of information. They lack ‘smarts.’

At GoFormz, we are pioneering the new breed of Smart Mobile Forms that are simple to use, yet are also intelligent, interactive and collaborative documents that can be filled out on any device. They are tightly coupled with data management, analytics tools and cloud-based storage.

We created this eBook to educate the business reader on the differences between Smart Mobile Forms and Fillable PDFs.

To create this eBook we identified some of the biggest disparities between Smart Mobile Forms and Fillable PDFs, and their implications on businesses.

Sneak Peak of what you will learn:                                    

Reason #1: Smart Mobile Forms are Dynamic and ‘Intelligent’

Fillable PDFs allow basic annotation of a form, while smart mobile forms can automate calculations, integrate data sources to pre-fill fields accurately, and enable dynamic features like conditional IF/THEN logic for specific fields.

Where fillable PDFs are nice annotation tools, smart mobile forms are data capture workhorses.

Reason #7: New Types of Data are Captured Through Your Mobile Device, such as GPS, Data & Time, Images, Etc.

Data entered into fillable PDFs is just static text entered from the keyboard – it is almost always alphanumeric. With smart mobile forms you can leverage the power of your device’s native resources like camera, GPS location, and clock date-time. This lets you include many new useful types of data in your forms, including images, GPS coordinates, date & time.
