Mobile form processes in the SmartFactory: HybridForms at SPC IPC Drives 2016

Industry 4.0 and digital transformation are front and center at SPS IPC Drives 2016 in Nuremberg. icomedias is using Europe’s leading trade fair for industrial automation to present its HybridForms mobile form solution for the smart factory of tomorrow. »Paper on Glass« – instead of paper forms – makes processes more transparent, efficient and immediately analyzable.

Digital transformation and »Paper on Glass« with HybridForms

In many production companies, checklists and forms are still printed and distributed on paper, then manually filled out, signed, gathered up again and then scanned and typed in, in order to make the collected data digitally available. The HybridForms mobile form solution makes a digital transformation possible within a few short weeks. The main advantage: the entire process is digital, form fields can be automatically pre-filled from third-party systems, and photos with sketches, drawings and voice memos can be added to forms. The full support and seamless switching between online and offline mode permits work to continue uninterrupted at all locations – even without a network. With a tablet pen, genuine handwritten signatures can be taken directly on the tablet, with the biometric features of the signature stored by the system. The result is policy-compliant processes, faster workflows, better data quality and reports and analysis which are immediately available.

HybridForms as a replacement for Microsoft InfoPath

HybridForms is a comprehensive solution for form workflow and automation projects with SharePoint and seamlessly functions in tandem with workflow systems such as Nintex, K2 or FireStart. With its powerful modules, it covers the entire process:

  • HybridForms Designer for creating custom form templates
  • HybridForms App for mobile work with checklists and forms on tablets and smartphones with Windows 10. Also offline without internet connection
  • HybridForms Webfiller for platform-independent work on devices with Windows 7, XP, Android as well as MacOS and iOS. The HTML5-based HybridForms Webfiller is thus ideal for working in the back office
  • HybridForms PDF Export ensures compliance requirements are met for forms as documents. The mobile form creates a printable PDF document that can be stored in any DMS
  • HybridForms SQL Connect for data exchange with third-party systems such as SAP and other ERP solutions

This makes HybridForms a professional alternative for complex form workflow for all companies which previously created their forms with Microsoft InfoPath (development status “discontinued”).
