Nice peace of software

2021-03-02

We use forms on fire as work intructions/reports of the technicians on site.

Pros

It allows to create the forms directly from your requirement, don't need third parties.

Cons

But so far I would say the dashboard could improve.

Solid, dependable and powerful

2021-07-14

I have built a fully comprehensive digital paperwork system with Forms on Fire for a client. It has transformed their business, automating many manual tasks and saving dozens of hours every month ongoing. The return on investment is off the charts. I also love the fact that the support is so responsive and helpful, even when it's a complex question I rarely need to explain more than once, and answers are timely and helpful, often going the extra mile.

Pros

I appreciate the fact that it isn't aimed at consumers, as other form builder tools are, so it goes straight to the powerful functions needed in a business environment.

Cons

However these can be bypassed by exporting data to another platform using the integrations or API, and custom dashboards and reporting can be built there.

Excellent all-round data capture tool

2019-06-04

We started out using FOF as a basic inspection tool but we've started to realize how powerful it is for tasks such as inventory management.

Pros

Offline data capture and offline printing are really powerful features.

Cons

It's a bit tough to get your head around some of the data-source read/write functions....but again their customer-service makes up for it whenever you encounter an issue.

Great software and Costumer service

2020-04-18

The mobile experience is great overall.

Pros

Detailed users management.

Cons

The form builder is a bit tricky to learn. If your needs are basics features it’s quite simple, but since you get in more complex forms then you’d probably need their help to get it work properly.

Easiest to Implement!

2019-05-28

The drag and drop interface for forms is outstanding and the help files make it easy to develop any workflow you can imagine, very powerful!

Pros

Our team especially liked the openness of the software programming interface, the associated help files, and the superb customer support whenever we had a question.

Cons

I think the website interface could use a few minor improvements like having data view columns maintain their positions between sessions or refreshes, and perhaps a little more development on the dashboard, although we'll probably develop our own that most of the vendors for this type of software simply don't offer.

Best form app for inspections

2020-04-21

This has allowed us to have multiple users out in the field collecting data and having our reporting automatically generated.

Pros

The level of customization available in the forms and data import/export formats allows for custom forms that can be easily put together and fit into existing data flows.

Cons

Implementing some more advanced functionality can require quite a few steps to accomplish the desired outcome.

Great software to prepare and update your company for the future!

2021-07-14

I only do have good experiences with forms on fire, using it on a daily basis for forms like "Damaged Material Reports" and all othe reports needed within logistics.

Pros

Database to have conformity throughout the organization. Exportable Excel data for further use.

Cons

As being a customer in Germany, german language would be a great thing to have.

Modern Forms Service Shines!

2017-02-10

The Designer is very intuitive, yet has advanced features such as data sources, filtering, formulas, and dynamic answers.

Pros

Intuitive design interface and ability to use data sources across multiple forms.

Cons

Tough question, but perhaps the lack of the ability to connect directly to an SQL database (without the API) or publish fields directly to SharePoint.

A very effective tool to save field time and office time.

2021-07-28

Overall I'm very satisfied with the price we pay, and the ability to complete items in an app with an output report on our template.

Pros

The output template is the most important feature to us.

Cons

Sometimes the customer support doesn't know what I am talking about when building the forms. Building the forms is sometimes very confusing, and very tedious. The amount of time it takes to build a form sometimes is not worth the effort over using excel. Not being able to force sync from the home page of the app is a downfall.

Easy and Friendly

2021-07-14

The app allows me to complete site inspections quickly and accurately identify hazards across the city . Very easy to use and when I get stuck forms on fire support is there to help when needed.

Pros

This software application allowed us to build a easy to use inspection form that captures information and pictures. the system then turns this data into the final report allowing department managers an easy to read report to identify corrections. the forms on fire app does away more than our IT department allows great ways to capture data this is amazing product.

Cons

The only con is that I am not allowed to use all the awesome features available with this product.

Response from Forms On Fire


Thank you for the review. This is an excellent idea! One thing to consider is designing the forms you want to export as a single form, using our data-driven capabilities. The other is to hold a data warehouse where the same table captures data from many or all of your forms. This is entirely possible to do if you utilize the JSON data type. Please set something up with your assigned program manager and they can review the details with you! :)
