Fieldwork is a major component of many industries. Over the past decade, field specialists have made a step towards the technologies in respect of the work with data.

I had a favorite pet store that I frequented to buy my dog food once. The pet store had a punch-card system where if you bought the same food a certain amount of times in a row, you would get a free bag of food after the tenth bag. I’m all for free stuff, so I signed up for it.
The problem was with the way they kept up with it. Whenever I would purchase something at the store, they would pull out a folder overflowing with papers. They would fish around for my name for a few minutes, until they found my specific card, which they then had to sign and stuff it back in the folder.
Not only was it hard for them to maintain, it wasn’t accurate – I never did get to that free eleventh bag.
Back when software was hard to create, this was more acceptable. Phones barely had enough memory to hold a few phone numbers, and developing a software for something like a punch-card system was unheard of.
Times are different. In our modern age, technology is there for us to use – so long as you know how to use it.
Snappii is an app company that has revolutionized the way apps are made in today’s fast paced business world. By developing a platform to create apps, Snappii is able to push out apps much faster, cheaper and efficiently than most other brands out there. With features that include unlimited prototyping, all of the most popular app functions and even HTML5, Snappii might surprise you with what it can do. Contact one of our sales associates today for a quote.
Templates are the bread and butter of Snappii’s DIY platform. And we have some for almost every occasion. If you’re a retail store that is looking to make things a bit more efficient, check out these templates:
Just like the last app, this one also benefits as a sort of medium between you and your potential customers. Product Catalogs, however, tend to be more on the informative side rather than the persuasive one. If your a company that sells heavy machinery, for example, the product catalog can offer a clean and accessible way for your sales associates to pull up pictures and details about your products. Just by having an app at all you increase your chances of eyeballs on your brand, so it could be an extremely profitable decision for some business owners.
This would have been great for that pet food store I was talking about. The Supermarket template allows you to put your catalog up for sale within the app. Aside from acting as another form of marketing through sending customers exclusive coupons, it also gives customers some additional freedoms that wouldn’t be possible without a mobile app. Customers can pay before-hand and then come pick up their goods when they’re available. Customers can also check if you have an item, and if not, when you will have it.
But most importantly, it gives you a way to communicate with your customers. If a customer notices a problem within the store, the app can act as a way for them to contact the store via a forum. Placing questions in a forum allows others to comment on it, which will give you a sense on the areas that could use work throughout your store.
Most of these apps will be pre-customized so that you can start using them right away. That said, we know a lot of businesses can differ even if they’re in the same sector, so we also give the user access to the app editor so they can customize things themselves. For more information on our form editor, sign up with Snappii and check out the “My Account” page.
Snappii is constantly looking to improve it’s…well…everything. If you have any suggestions for improvements you’d like to see in the site, platform, or anywhere else, let us know.
There are very few jobs where paper is absolutely necessary anymore. Think about it – when was the last time you had to use a paper form. If it was for your entry documents at a hospital, this form could have easily been converted into an iPad app to give to clients as they come in. For Construction, daily logs and checklists run rampant through most companies. These forms then have to be carried to main offices and entered in manually. Even inspections could benefit greatly from adopting an app into their ecosystem – apps could make a typical job up to 44% shorter in this industry, and they are still under utilized.
At times, it’s hard for me to believe that there are still employees out there who are completing their daily tasks on the same ole pen and paper that they’ve been using for decades and I can only imagine the younger employees faces as they fill out the same box, the same way, for the thousandth time that week.
Apps are not a revolutionary or new technology – in fact, apps have been used since early 2010 to facilitate all types of jobs in the work place that would normally require a Telxon, or a mini computer, to use. With the advent of smartphones, the computers are now in everyone’s pockets before you even hire them. When we combine that with an infrastructure to create apps – personal ones that are catered specifically to your business, we can cut excess workloads and reallocate resources elsewhere.
Snappii, a mobile app development company, aims to do just that with it’s intuitive platform. By utilizing the platform, app developers can produce apps at lightning fast speeds for significantly less than the cost of building a native app. There’s many reasons for this, but the first one is the basis of the entire operation.
Easy and Versatile
Our Snappii editor has two distinct ways to operate it. Both are useful in their own way, and ultimately are there to cater to varying skill levels. Even if you’ve never programmed anything before, the Snappii editor will ensure your success through a series of tutorials, on top of the visual interface used to actually create the apps.
The two modes in the Snappii editor are the Express and Guru modes. Express is the more simple version of the editor, which enables the user with a fully visual interface. Simply click the “Add Widget” button towards the bottom of the screen, and a widget catalog will populate the screen. The widget catalog is filled with all sorts of combinations of app features, so exploring them might be the best way to learn more about them.
While Guru is similar in the sense that it is also visual, it is slightly harder to use because of the amount of options you have to customize it. These can range from connecting ODBC connectors to simply adding a calculation to a certain part of a form.
That’s great and all, but what about inspections?
Inspections are one of the industries that Snappii works with constantly. Everyday I’m surprised by the amount of people that, in 2017, are still using paper and pen to complete these reports. For starters, paper is easy to destroy. When transporting paper around from city to city, anything can mess up the data on it. There’s also the idea of entering in the data twice. In a traditional paper and pen setting, information has to be written down, processed, and then sent to the main office so that they can finish the entry.
By using an app, though, both of those problems become null instantly. Apps have the digital advantage of being able to sent through email, so the second the information is sent, it is updated against the back-end database. Similarly, the accuracy of information is significantly better. WIth no smudges or tears to ruin your paper, apps can get the job done instantly rather than driving it from place to place.
My company is special, and so are our forms
At Snappii, we understand that different companies have different standards for their inspections – it’s what makes them unique and different. In light of that, recreating your form on the Snappii editor is something that anyone can do, programmer or not.
In cases where individuals want us to create a custom form for them, the Snappii team only needs the PDF that your company already uses. Any high-quality copy will do, and will be used in the app as the template that the information from the mobile form is entered into.
Snappii is a leading competitor in the app-creation sphere. With thousands of apps under our belt, and a deep understanding of both small and big businesses, we’re confident that we can create an app that will make your entire day easier, and hopefully, shorter.
