MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA — Xora, a ClickSoftware Company, today announced a new release of Xora StreetSmart™, its flagship mobile workforce management solution, featuring industry-leading enhancements to the Mobile Forms and Mileage Manager apps, designed to drive greater efficiency and potential cost savings.
This upgrade provides powerful new capabilities for Xora Mobile Forms. First, managers can access all submitted form data from a single page, with filters for quickly narrowing in on the desired data, plus the ability to edit or complete partial form submissions. Second, new form sharing options provide the ability to automatically share form data upon submission or on-demand from the mobile app. These new capabilities streamline the access to and use of form data, making it rapidly accessible to both managers and customers for providing immediate proof of service. These advancements, added to the industry’s easiest interface for form creation and deployment, including the ability to integrate mobile forms with timesheet and job workflows, makes Xora StreetSmart Mobile Forms the most powerful forms offering for mobile businesses.
The only Mobile Workforce Management solution to offer a full mileage management app, Xora StreetSmart Mileage Manager now includes enhancements that enable managers to export a PDF of the User Route Map, which displays the actual route of a trip taken compared with the Google Maps suggested route. Managers can now easily share this visual route information with customers or review it with employees as well as archive it for future reference.
“The improvements we have made to the Mobile Forms and Mileage Manager provide functionality that isn’t available in mobile workforce management offerings from any other vendor,” said Tom Miltonberger, vice president of Products and Engineering for Xora. “These enhancements continue our track record of giving our users industry-leading capabilities that help them to work more effectively and efficiently.”
“We use the enhanced Xora StreetSmart Mobile Forms to easily access the form data that our crews submit for each job they complete. The new management interface has made reviewing those completed forms even easier,” said Robert Ewald, owner and president of landscaping company Ewald Services Inc. “We like the convenience of having one place to view and monitor all submitted forms, which enables us to speed and simplify our invoicing and better manage our cash flow.”
“By emailing mobile forms directly from their handsets, our supervisors can have improved visibility into what’s happening at each job site. We are also emailing the completed forms to clients so they get the same info in real-time,” said Michael C. Wyatt, the CEO of Geese Police Indiana, which uses border collies to clear Canada geese from client properties.
