Government offices use various types of forms for data collection. Nearly every process from the municipal to state to federal level are managed using paper-based forms. These forms are used for both internal and external processes, from simple employee expense reports to complicated forms for census surveys. In the developed economies, a lot of the processes have been digitized but in the developing nations, paper-based forms and processes still exist. Paper forms are difficult to store, slow to move from location to location, tedious to process and increase chances of errors. Watch the key issues with paper based forms here
Nowadays everyone owns a smartphone or a tablet. People are spending more and more time on digital mediums and are extremely comfortable in using these devices – be it for catching up with friends, ordering things or doing office work. Citizens are used to self-service options for banking and shopping and are seeking a similar experience as far as government tasks are concerned. Citizens are ready for digital but governments across the world are finding it difficult to integrate this digital movement into their everyday work.
With mobile forms, the benefits easily outweigh the investment in setting up these forms. Employee productivity and customer service can both be enhanced at the same time. All those man hours of paperwork and then entering all the data into your backend systems can be spent on more productive purposes. Staff can now complete inspections and surveys faster and avoid slow manual processes like taking the filled forms back to office. Moreover, constituents will be able to submit forms faster, reduce the turnaround time and get solutions to their problems faster. Saving time and cost is not just the only advantage – an important aspect of paperless work is also reducing errors and going eco-friendly!!
