Often people use the word "digital transformation" to describe the process of mobilizing your field workers.
We thought it might be useful to give you a practical real world example of a dispatch app built with Alpha TransForm by a line of business person in 30-60 minutes (see slides below and email firstname.lastname@example.org for a recorded webinar on building dispatch apps with Alpha TransForm.)
Unlike, other mobile data capture solutions where the person, who is acting as the dispatch manager, has to manually type in the info needed for the dispatch app.
Alpha TransForm is able to work with back end databases or "systems of record" to dynamically pre-fill in the appropriate fields in the dispatch form/app.
In addition to all the power built into Alpha TransForm that can be leveraged by line of business people with no programming background, because of TransForm's TPL language (aimed at "power users,") and its extensive API, one can build data collection apps that do things (needed to meet real world requirements,) that would be extremely difficult or impossible to accomplish with other mobile form/data capture products.
Here are some examples:
- Scan Bar or QR codes & look-up against remote data sources or on-device databases (for offline use)
- Take advantage of web services (Eg. Check a car VIN # against a stolen car DB)
- Record sound, location, time & capture/mark up photos, sketch diagrams
- Create summary reports or custom layouts
- Tie into existing workflows and build virtually any custom web app
- Initiate SMS’s or emails based on calculations or transformations performed on the data that is collected in the field
- Create dynamic and filtered picklists for much faster and more accurate data input
TransForm builds business apps in minutes.
