What Makes Alpha TransForm Unique

  • Massively Boosts developer productivity for building data capture & dispatch apps
  • Its no-code design lets line of business workers build these apps themselves in 15-30 minutes (vs weeks with low-code) while IT controls the integration to existing systems through TransForm's powerful API

75% of enterprise mobile apps involve secure data capture or dispatch apps that must work offline

TransForm builds these apps   in minutes versus weeks.


  • Secure and optimized to work on any size SmartPhone with special data entry controls
  • Integrates with any back-end database or application through an extensive REST API
  • Apps work offline - no coding needed
  • Supports stopwatches, annotation and zoom on images, GPS capture, large audio  file capture,  bar code reading  multi-table data structures of any complexity, HTML
  • Dramatically speeds data-capture and increases data accuracy in the field using phone-optimized controls

An Example of a Mobile Data Capture App Built in Minutes

Visiting Nurse: The data collected would be the standard alpha numeric Info - but now imagine the data collected would be able to include: bar-codes for any equipment left with the patient, multiple audios of a cough, sound or voice,  a list of all the drugs the patient is taking, with no pre-determination/limitation re the number of the drugs, an unlimited capacity to record side effects for each drug with text, pictures (including zoom and annotation,) or audio,  GPS location and time stamp to confirm the nurse was there and when, accurate elapsed time measurements such as the length of the visit, heart rate or the time taken by the patient to perform certain tasks 

What are the benefits?

  1. The Doctor would have a more complete report re patient's medical condition and would also be able to easily compare changes over time
  2. Accounting would know where their equipment was and could bill more accurately plus confirm the hours worked for payroll
  3. The data would be more timely and accurate and actions that needed to occur after the visit could take place faster

    The overall impact would be better patient outcomes which obviously is good for the patient but also benefits the hospital in higher
    reimbursements / revenue
