Fulcrum

Custom form creation and mobile data collection software

4.8/5 (41 reviews)

Fulcrum overview

Fulcrum is a cloud-based custom form creation and mobile data collection solution designed to enhance workflows at all stages of the data cycle. The platform allows users to build and deploy custom mobile forms, with support for signature collection, barcode scanning, rich media, GPS location recording, and more.

Fulcrum’s drag-and-drop form builder provides users with customizable building blocks to create their custom mobile forms. Multiple data types, conditional skip logic, video and audio recording, image annotation, and geotagging are all supported. Forms can be deployed to the field in real time, with any changes made updated automatically, and users can assign tasks to field workers for completion. Configurable security roles and permissions allow users to control what each employee can access.

Fulcrum offers native mobile data collection apps for iOS and Android which allow users to scan barcodes, collect signatures, record GPS locations, use basemaps, and capture rich media. The apps enable offline data collection and automatically sync records with the cloud once connection is restored. Fulcrum generates reports for export in a range of standard formats, including PDF, CSV, and Excel, and displays all data on a map for analysis and quality checking. The system can also be extended using the API to integrate with other services and build custom tools.

Fulcrum Mobile Data Collection

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

Fulcrum is a viable alternative to the cost of using other "shop"-based software that require subscription to standard engineering tools. Fulcrum is useful for people in professions other than engineering and large-scale design work. At the end of a project, I can have a thorough data set for a project that can be shared (either through the software or through data exports) with others for a variety of purposes.

Fulcrum in Ecology

Fulcrum is, or should be, the industry standard for Ecology data collection. The ability to generate literally any style of form from plain text boxes to hundreds of option drop-downs, means that you can keep up with the demands of surveying nature. This software has saved time, money and a lot of peoples hairlines within my own company, and I am sure within numerous other consultancies.

Field Review of the Fulcrum System

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-04-02
Review Source: Capterra

Using Fulcrum, mainly the mobile application, has been a god sent. I do not like keeping up with paper reports and then transferring them to digital content and having to attach media to the now digital report. Having this platform and being able to attach my media (i.e. photos, videos, etc.) to my report all from one device and not having to transfer files back and forth from phone to computer any more if GREAT. In one action, I can complete multiple tasks at once.

We collect thousands of data points annually using Fulcrum - it's greatly streamlined our field data collection processes for many different aspect of water quality research and stormwater management feature design, from soil test pits to infrastructure inspection. Without this software, we'd be struggling to scale our business.

Capture Field Sample Descriptions without Internet or Cell Service

Used occasionally for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-03-29
Review Source: Capterra

We use Fulcrum in the mineral exploration industry where our sampling crews capture their field sample descriptions on their Android phones. Android phones are simpler to use as we can load background maps as maptiles into the app (a bit tricky to load onto iPhones). Crews record sample descriptions, take sample photos, and capture GPS coordinates all with their phone. Cell phone service or Internet is not required while in the field. The sampling crew refresh their phone app when they get back to camp in the evening where satellite Internet is available. So by the end of the day everyone's field data has been uploaded to the cloud. Head office can view progress within a few hours either with the map viewer on the Fulcrum website or by loading into the company's GIS database.
