Canvas is a far-reaching tool for managing forms and data entry over multiple devices. I had been searching for a tool to do waivers for my mobile entertainment business (laser tag). I didn't want to bring paper forms for people to sign and for me to lose. Canvas is feature rich and allowed me to build a multi-person form that I could use to have many of my customers fill out wherever I am. When I'm back in range, I load up the waivers to my computer via wifi. Complicated problem solved easily.

But, as I dug a little deeper, I realized there are many, many forms and written notes than can be converted to this tool...surveys, checklists, packing sheets, broken equipment reports. So many businesses are form centric and this is the most evolved tool I've found for forms on a tablet or smartphone.

The only downfalls are the price and the price and a quirk of the Kindle Fire. Canvas charges a $20 monthly fee or so per device. That's not a huge price, but many smartphone/tablet folks are used to really inexpensive software in the $9.99 for life range. To me it's fair because of all the paper I'm not printing (often on my expensive ink-jet printer), but it may not be practical for small users.

The other problem is apparently the custom keypad built into the Kindle Fire. For numeric entry, the Kindle (or at least my version of it), doesn't show a zero as an option. That's really a big problem. According to tech support at Canvas (and I've confirmed this as a problem with Kindle), this is because the basic keypad that Canvas calls up just doesn't have the zero. Great. My only option is to crack the Fire to install a third party keyboard because Amazon, in their infinite wisdom, doesn't allow third-party keyboard in their app store. Great.

Still, that's not Canvas's fault. Their tool is great.

Canvas has been incredible to work with. Our business is in Electrical Contracting, and Canvas designed a form on their app so that our employees don't need to fill out paper work tickets anymore. They also installed a barcode scanning system, so that our employees can scan items that they take from our warehouse to use at the jobsite. Canvas also give the ability to export those work tickets into a CSV or XML file, which means we can actually import those scans from their work tickets into our job costing software. It does so much more than we ever expected it to, which has made our switch to Canvas a seamless transition, and our employees who use it love it!
But the best part about Canvas is their Customer Service. I've had issues mapping some updates I made to the app, and was in a hurry to get it taken care of (before our employees were going to scan), and they got my message and called me immediately. Their response time is great, and they make sure they actually help solve the problem if there is one.
I can't say too many good things about their company, and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to consolidate their paper forms into a paperless app.

I'm not a programmer, but in 5 minutes I hade a basic form created to gather information. After a few hours I had uploaded our client list, and created an app that when you picked a client name from the list, Canvas pre-populated address, phone, contact, email, etc...that could be dispatched to someone in the field. That person could add notes or even complete a whole maintenatce report with estimate to repair that the client could sign on the screen to approve. The tech can submit the form and send via email to anyone. The missing star only comes from not figuring out yet how to recall that work order estimate (or just the data), and easily convert to an invoice, or send to QB or other accounting to convert to invoice. As I say, I'm not a programmer. Finally, Canvas is a very affordable utilitarian app that you can build unlimited apps to gather information, submit, email, download, analyze...with unlimited submissions and users..for $20 a month. It's a tool, not a beauty contest, so don't expect to put a soft edged out of focus kitten image with chirping birds sound effects in the background. Great tool.

Great app for our business. Been using it for a couple of years now and love it. No more carrying folders of service reports. The accounting dept gets the forms quickly so billing can get done faster.
