More and more online forms are being introduced in various sectors. The advantage of online forms is always a better and faster supply of information within the business processes. Smart online forms are used in, for example, the construction, (manufacturing) industry, service companies, and administration offices for, among other things, checks, inspections, and service requests.
Sometimes these forms are very specific or even unique to an organization, but there are also a large number of generic forms in use.
Why are there different online forms?
Online forms can help in the execution of various business processes. With the digitization of forms, you can automate tasks and actions, and data is collected and stored in a uniform way.
The content of online forms can depend on the sector in which it is used. A construction company naturally has different business processes than a manufacturing company. That is why it is important to be able to create a form in such a way that it fits in with the desired process. However, there are also many examples of online forms that are interchangeable between sectors. Think for example of a timesheet or an incident form.
Why various sectors are switching to digital forms
The reason for switching to digital forms is the same for various sectors. People want to get away from paper flow to optimize the quality and efficiency of business processes. No more mistakes due to illegible handwriting or half-filled forms. Or easy searching in the archive where no duplicate copies can be found. Digitizing business processes saves an enormous amount of time but also speeds up the turnaround times of business processes. Moreover, by deploying smart online forms, you can help employees fill out the form and even have the workflow taken care of automatically.

Online forms in the service industry
A familiar example of online forms in the service industry is a report form. This could be about broken equipment or a complaint about a service. By building smart features, such a form can go directly to the right employee for processing, but the findings can also be communicated back via an e-mail, including a prepared PDF report.
