The mobile app for B2W Inform allows contractors to use the electronic forms and reporting solution in offline and online modes, and is available in both the Google and Apple app stores for both Android and Apple devices.
B2W designed the new mobile app to address the fact that Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity is not always available at job sites or may not be the most cost-effective approach for some contractors. Electronic forms for safety, inspections, training, and a range of additional operational processes can be downloaded to a mobile device in advance, along with operational data such as employee, job, and equipment lists. Forms can then be completed anytime, anywhere in the offline mode and synched back to B2W Inform for routing, submission, and reporting when a connection is established.
Offline mobile software capabilities are valuable at mining, marine, underground, and remote job sites where Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity is frequently not available. Many contractors also prefer to use mobile devices offline in urban areas, where networks can be overloaded and slow, and to minimize the cost of cellular data utilization or maintaining Wi-Fi hotspots.
