Why use QMForms instead of paper, or a laptop?
Compared to paper forms, QMForms mean faster, better data collection, and time is money. There’s no need to compile the data from paper forms and no paper to manage or lose. And because QMForms can capture pictures, audio, video and location, you may be able to use less-expensive personnel to gather the needed data. Even use the folks who did the original work, which has other benefits as well.
QMForms are instantly available on smartphones and tablets. No time is wasted waiting for a laptop to boot up. And the data is collected much faster than with paper forms. As soon as a wireless connection is available, the data can be sent
where it needs to go.
And, because a picture is worth a thousand words – there’s even time saved in filling out the form. Instead of spending time writing a detailed description, just take the picture, make a few comments, and you’re done.
Why rely just on words or human measurements, when you can get a more direct measurement? QMForms can capture information the way a trained, neutral observer would. Pictures, video and audio are obvious. But there’s
more. QMForms can capture information such as: the noise level of a room, whether framing is straight and level, the order of food storage in a refrigerator, and much, much more. Need more sophisticated measurements? With a USB connector and a small amount of development, QMForms can measure blood pressure, a patient’s temperature, the vibration level of machinery, and the light level of a room.
If you use your quality data for coaching, training, problem solving and documentation, QMForms increases the value of your data collection by many times.
The answer is clear. By capturing the information as it appears or sounds, etc. the information becomes more than just words or numbers. It becomes real.
