ProntoForms Empowers Gateway Mechanical to Transform Its Field Service Operation with Android solution

Reduced data entry time by 400 percent and improved cash flow by more than $1 million

OTTAWA, Ont. - February 7, 2017 - ProntoForms Corporation (TSXV: PFM), the global leader in automating mobile workflows, has released a new customer case study highlighting how ProntoForms helped Gateway Mechanical Systems, a major mechanical contractor, deploy an Android-based mobile workflow solution for its field service team, including a mobile dispatching system and integration with its ERP system."

The ProntoForms solution replaces the paper-based process the company's technicians used for site inspections, hazard assessments, maintenance, and more.

"The previous process was expensive, inefficient, and time-consuming," says Dave Herbert, IT Manager for Gateway. "In addition to costing us time and money, it led to billing problems because of invoicing errors and a long delay between finishing a job and sending an invoice."

The mobile solution helped Gateway reduce data entry time by 400 percent and improved cash flow by more than $1 million due to faster billing and reduced data entry errors.

"ProntoForms was extremely easy to deploy, and worked right away with our Android devices. It was also simple to tie to our backend systems," says Dave Herbert.

"By building solutions with Android, ProntoForms is able to accelerate market adoption in a large number of industries and businesses," said Alvaro Pombo, ProntoForms Founder and CEO. "We are thrilled with the results Gateway Mechanical has realized through the use of our services, and see this as further illustrating that our solution can benefit organization that relies on paper forms."

The case study is available here:
