Success Story Summary:
Veriform, a high-precision sheet metal manufacturing firm, gains a competitive edge and cost savings of over $8,000 a month after implementing Mi-Co’s Mi-Forms mobile e-Forms technology on Tablets.
Since 1997, Veriform has been providing customers across North America with precision sheet metal and plate fabricating services. Operating from 3 plants totaling 26,000 square feet, Veriform manufactures custom parts primarily for the mining, forestry and machine building industries.
“Our paper-forms process included a confusing layout, took too long to fill out, and we were in constant fear of losing copies. With our sustainability initiatives, moving to a paperless process was a no brainer. We originally selected Mi-Forms, because it was able to support iPads, Android Tablets, Windows 8 Tablets & even more!” says Paul Rak, CEO of Veriform. “We wound up really loving Mi-Forms for the flexibility it provided in building our e-Forms. Mi-Co helped us redesign our forms and use real-time data to reduce data entry over 74% and experience ‘massive returns’ on our investment.” The deployment took just 1-2 months and was done using Motion Computing Tablets in this case.
Veriform was able to streamline their field operations process from requiring 19 steps to only 5 steps, by their use of Mi-Forms on Tablet technology. With the new e-Forms they are able to process more jobs in less time and virtually eliminate errors. Veriform is also able to automate invoice creation based on real time e-Form data, speeding time to payment & improving cash-flow.
