The world today is getting digitized real fast with people getting used to finding all that they need on their mobile phones. Organizations are still handling a lot of process through paper. The shift to mobile has been necessitated as paper processes make organizations vulnerable to data loss, create storage and retrieval problems, limit collaboration possibilities and in general, lead to higher costs. However, organizations are skeptical about changing their paper processes as they would have to go through a lot of hassle to convert paper forms into mobile.
Difficulties in Aviation Sector posed by Paper Processes
One of the industries that is highly reliant on paper is the airline industry. From pilots to ground service personnel to manufacturers to crew and airline inspectors, many safety issues, regulatory sheets and operational tasks are being handled using paper. Most of these paper reports must be re-written into a backend system manually and a lot of time is lost in this manual data entry process along with errors that creep in due to illegible handwriting. Many hours are spent by a variety of departments across the business inputting the data from about 550 flights per day. The effort is being duplicated by re-writing these paper forms into software systems. The aviation industry stands to benefit if they can convert their paper forms into digital using the Mobile Forms tool.
Here’s a look at five major benefits that Mobile Forms can bring to the Aviation Sector
1) Eliminate Paper
Capture, verify, and integrate collected data to your business systems and eliminate paperwork. Filling up paper forms takes a lot of time and this process can be reduced through pre-populated fields and data validations. Manual data entry can be avoided, thus removing errors and reducing time wastage.
2) Improve Data Accuracy
While collecting data, Mobile Forms can be configured to take specific data sets only from an existing database. With drop down menus and auto-complete test boxes, user errors can be reduced significantly.
For instance, just on entering flight numbers, route information, crew details, actual and scheduled arrival times and departure times can be pre-populated. This reduces the time required in entering all details manually and reduces errors.
3) Automate Workflows
Workflow automation in mobile forms coordinates activities of individuals within an organization, ensuring that the right people get the information they need at the right time. Pilots can now fill in all details for a process and this information would directly reach the relevant teams on the click of a button. Information flow and seeking approvals is now very easy with this workflow support being provided by Mobile Forms.
4) Go Green
Going mobile eliminates paper and reduces the organization’s carbon footprint. According to the Natural Marketing Institute, 58% of consumers are likely to purchase from organizations that actively reduce their impact on the environment.
5) Increasing Data Security
Mobile Forms have very high level of security ensuring that users without correct credentials won’t have access to enterprise forms. Forms and form fields can be implemented to be shown only basis defined user roles. This ensures that crucial information will not fall into wrong hands.
