Fulcrum is a field inspection management platform built to streamline safety and quality processes, field operations, and asset inspections, especially for mobile teams.
In the 21st century, more companies are finding ways to automate manual workflows that eat up valuable time and resources.
It’s a smart move. According to McKinsey research, about half of current work activities can be automated using technology that already exists.
What is a workflow?
A workflow is a predictable, predefined set of tasks that run in a specific sequence. In other words, it’s how things get done.
Studies show that data collection and processing workflows take up, on average, a third of companies’ time.
At Fulcrum, we understand that’s time your employees could be spending on other high value, revenue-generating or cost-saving tasks. That’s why our mission is to simplify the collection, sharing, and analysis of data for our users.
With Fulcrum, companies are able to eliminate pen-and-paper processes and streamline their workflows by collecting data on mobile devices (even without internet connection). That data then syncs to the cloud, where it’s instantly available to anyone in their organization with access.
This helps reduce errors, delays, and site revisits due to illegible handwriting, lost forms, or data-entry mistakes and results in accurate, standardized data.
What’s more, our developers built several features into our platform that enable users to quickly share and analyze collected data with their existing systems and even external stakeholders.
We’ve identified 5 of those features that our customers most commonly use to automate their workflows and get more done, faster.
