"Offering flexibility to fit any need"

What do you like best?

We use Canvas to record field service cases. The ability to build a different app, or form, for the various contracts we hold saves quite a bit of money. In the past we've always run into apps that can provide some of the support we need, but lack a key piece. That left us to invent a work around, which often increases data variance, or purchase a secondary program. The support we've received from Canvas has also been top notch. No waiting around for days to receive a call back on a issue. They often give us calls just to check on how things are going and to tell us about new features. The latest being a calendar that was added to the dispatch screen. This lets us schedule and easily see how our field services are working the day. The price is extremely competitive for this sort of software as well. Its hard to list one feature as what we like best. All around the software has been great asset to our company. It also integrates with Zapier, which is just a bonus. There is a api that canvas freely offers if you want to do it the old fashioned way.

What do you dislike?

One of our main clients has a tendency to omit key items when discussing our contracts, then after we start they have new requirements for data capturing. The only issue we've run into has to do with these ocurrances. Apps cannot be changed without a version update, but once the version is updated data cannot be pulled from multiple versions at once. They may have new headers or be in a different order, which is why it is difficult to fix. However, when you're dealing with thousands of entries it is not always possible to do one of these updates. Also the regular search feature only searches the last 500 entries to a particular app. You can search everything when using the advanced search.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recording thousands of field service trips in a short amount of time. This includes upwards of 40 unique photos and dozens of serial numbers. It also lets us get a signature from clients and digitally record it; should the work come in question.

"Canvas has changes how we do business"

What do you like best?

The freedom to create products that are specific to my needs. The tools are easy to use and give me the ability to create almost anything. I cant say enough wonderful things about support. They generally respond within the hour and never stop until I have an answer or resolution. The platform is continually expanding, offering better options for the tasks I am trying to complete.

What do you dislike?

I cant say there is anything that I dislike about Canvas.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Plan, experiment and have fun!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before Canvas, I had inconsistent data being submitted by my field technicians. All of my field personnel (myself included) had no access to real data concerning the customers we are servicing. The only way for us to get the data was to call into the office and take up the office staffs time trying to answer questions.

Since we have started with Canvas, the data submitted by the technicians in the field has become consistent, reducing the number of questions raised in the office trying to support them. The data that is available to the technicians is almost limitless. They can check inventory, customer history, asset history and contact information. I have also created apps to manage the on-call service rotation, time cards, after hours dispatch and even accident reporting.

To sum it up, Canvas has enabled this company to save time and money by making valuable information ready instantly and consistently.

"Streamlining all of our operations"

What do you like best?

The ease of creating and updating forms. I love the designer PDFs. They look great. I also love the Zapier integration. I integrate so many of our form submissions with Google Sheets. Very helpful.

What do you dislike?

Not knowing if a photo field is going to create a second page on the designer PDF report. I have to test it several times before getting it right.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely, consider this product if you are looking to setup electronic / mobile forms for your company. You will not be disappointed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are getting needed forms and billing faster than ever before. We're creating less paper nightmares and get things from other states in hours rather than days. We find new forms, reports, etc. to add to our Canvas forms at least weekly. We are capturing daily reporting from our drivers that we weren't necessarily able to before and it helps us on many levels.

"A robust and easy to learn tool for any business."

What do you like best?

Having access to forms and applications on mobile devices is a must in today's digital world. Canvas works flawlessly in this aspect. Elements on the screen are scaled beautifully, and the interface is easy to understand.

What do you dislike?

The Canvas platform can handle a multitude of business processes; however, there lacks a connection of the information between apps. For instance if a purchase order is created, it would be nice to pull values from that form into a material receipt form. I think this kind of built-in feature would bring the Canvas experience to a whole new level.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking to eliminate paper clutter and reduce the time spent filing and entering data from hard copy documents, look no further that Canvas.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've integrated Canvas into our client's workflow to minimize their paper footprint, and streamline their business process from on the job site to in the office.

"Canvas helped us solve our reporting needs"

What do you like best?

The mobile client and desktop client make it very easy on our staff to input information consistently and correctly. Also, being able to customize the app for our specific needs is a big plus. And once the information is entered, having the consistent output report format keeps everyone on the same page with expectations.

What do you dislike?

While we are able to customize the PDF reports, they do have their limitations and are sometimes difficult to get the information organized in the desired format.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great product. Make sure you understand the pricing and level structure.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The mobile platform makes it very easy for our staff to enter data so we are seeing a much greater participation than before, which provides us useful information for future planning. We have also been able to use fewer staff in the administration role for distributing and organizing the information.

"Canvas has been great for our company"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to write apps and our techs have done away with all of their 3-part forms, which has saved us a lot of money.

What do you dislike?

Can't think of anything that I don't like

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Their support team has always been great to work with

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had a number of forms for our technicians, depending on what type of service call they were making. Now they don't have to worry because all their forms are available on their phone or tablet. I also want to note that their tech support team is the best around. They are always friendly and helpful!

"Use it for national installations proof of completion"

What do you like best?

Reliable and lots of convenient features. Easy to read reports, fairly easy to design apps. The new interface is beter than before. You can now copy questions. Much faster to create custom apps

What do you dislike?

Not much these days. Since the improvements made in the update, it has become much more user friendly. The new app builder is just as easy to use as the old one with some more features. Some people say they do not like the new App builder, but it is A-OK

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get it. Makes life way easier if you have the proper data plans already. Also gets people into the habit of communicating via mobile phone which is very important if managing from a remote office. It could not be a better tool and it is very valuable because it changes along with your needs as a business or from project to project.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Proof of completion, information needed from sites to get work done quickly and in one visit. We also can capture a ton of detail with the app and because we can customize it on the fly it is very easy to add or remove questions

"Well thought out platform that puts easy form creation in the users hands!"

What do you like best?

That I could design all the forms we need with very little coaching from tech support. The staff is friendly and helpful and the ability to design your own stuff is awesome. Their platform is pretty easy to use.

What do you dislike?

There are limitations that require their programmers to do. I wish there were more options for tables and built in math. And the PDF designer does have limitations that can be frustrating. But overall the system is still pretty well thought out and cutting edge.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely do a trial version and make sure it fits your needs. Tech support and sales staff are very knowledgeable helping you navigate whether it's a good fit. Use them in the consideration process.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dispatching inspectors and providing a much quicker vehicle to submit field reports has been huge for us. This has saved lost time by hours a day and helped our guys be more efficient in the field.

"Reduce and Find Errors Easily"

What do you like best?

Pictures, GPS and ability to have conditional fields. Apps work great on portable devices like smart phones. Data can be collected and monitored near real time. Ability to group and dispatch jobs too certain employees or employee. Files are time stamped. Monitoring of job completion. Ability to upload and update reference data easily. Editing app as required after publishing very easily.

What do you dislike?

No if or statements. Reference file upload limitation, there is options though.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Customizable apps and forms with automatic reports.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Field Deployment of Watt Hour Meters. Pictures for verification and error correction. GPS for equipment locating. Keeps the technicians focused on duties with required and conditional fields.

"Convenient, easy to use"

What do you like best?

Ability to see the results of our work from the field, ask questions, and gather signatures to provide accountability for our work to our customers.

What do you dislike?

Unable to have reporters edit previous versions of Apps once changes have been made. Crashing and compatibility issues with some phones.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Eliminating the need for paper sign-offs and surveys as well as reducing the number of revisits to locations as we are receiving information directly from the site and can address issues before our installers leave. Benefits include receiving the information and photos in an easy to read and modify PDF with reasonable file sizes instead of individual pictures and forms.

"Smart, Saavy, Scalable"

What do you like best?

I love the flexibility of Canvas. The dependencies that it allows you to build into your forms/apps is perfect for our business. It allows us to create content-rich forms that are focused on ease of use. Scalability is another amazing facet of Canvas. We started with a handful of users and are now close to 100 - adding new users and assigning them apps/forms is simple and intuitive.

What do you dislike?

There is no such thing as a silver bullet. But even with that, we've been very pleased with Canvas and don't have anything that stands out here.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Start with apps from their app exchange to understand how others use Canvas and then modify them to meet your specific business needs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Exchanging documentation. Integration between different applications - Excel, Canvas, Salesforce.com. Improving customer service - faster turnaround on activities. Improving data accuracy and ease of retrieval.

"VERY Customizable - completely changed how we do things"

What do you like best?

This is one of the most customizable platforms we work with, making it a huge asset. As we use it, we keep improving it. Whatever you need, you can make it happen with some imagination.

What do you dislike?

Designing and creating the apps wasn't the easiest thing, but they also have an option where someone can do it for you.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The support couldn't be better, and the product itself is as great as you're willing to make it. We couldn't be happier.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We went paperless with our service work orders. They are now more professional, more organized, and we're able to mandate some of the info our techs send in by not letting them skip certain entries.

"GOCANVAS review"

What do you like best?

That it can be used on my phone as an app. It allows my company to go almost paperless.

What do you dislike?

It takes longer to input data then it does to write it down on paper. The time value scrolls up and down on apple products instead of being able to just type the time which would be faster.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a great way to go paperless. It also you to customize the forms that your employees will fill out.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Going paperless. Being able to submit documents without turning them in, in person. Being able to review past paperwork without contacting the office.

"Too expensive to add users"

What do you like best?

Helps keep track of job information for construction sites.

What do you dislike?

Cost to add a user to allow access to apps within a paid account is too high. Need to add a user to have access to an app and the cost is very high to do that which lowers the productivity.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helps keep track of each job which is very helpful. However, the cost to add someone onto an account to use (1) app is very expensive. Currently paying a high cost to use the software which is hurting the bottom line. Pros and cons -- Helpful to keep track of jobs and make sure to get paid accordingly -- Cons, very expensive software and not allowed to add a user without adding much more to the cost which makes it less productive. That is unfortunate.

Hi Michelle,

I'm glad our team was able to get in touch with you this afternoon to discuss.

I'm sorry we couldn't find a solution that worked for your team's specific budget needs, but we thank you again for trying Canvas!

If we can be of assistance in the future, please let us know.

----------------------------------------------------------

Hi Michelle,

Thank you for your review.

I am glad to see the Canvas is helping your company more effectively track construction projects, but disappointed to see you left a low rating based on price.

Most of our subscribers have 3+ apps that they use with the Canvas platform, so we would love to explore the other ways that your company could utilize Canvas to increase your ROI. We also have flexible pricing options available for growing teams as well!

Please feel free to reach out to me via email at Keith.bateman@gocanvas.com if you would like to discuss further.

Thank you again for being a Canvas subscriber.

"Great Construction App"

What do you like best?

We have just started working with GoCanvas and have had a pleasant experience so far. The training has been professional and very informative. I love that they have a customer support chat that is available right there when you are stuck. Also, the mobile app is easy to use!

What do you dislike?

The only thing not so user-friendly is the PDF creater. Some functions do not work as well as we would like them to.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Less time for our employees in the field filling out paperwork. Going along with that, some of that information gets lost because it's a paper copy, so there is no way with this app for someone to forget to submit information.

"Game Changer"

What do you like best?

So easy to use, from start to finish. Programming new apps, setting up all the parameters, end-user experience.

What do you dislike?

It could use a preview, prior to signature. We create a document for a customer, and ask them to sign, but they don't see the result or form before signing.

Also, pretty dang expensive if your user base is large.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is addicting if you enjoy programming. You learn a new trick each time you improve something else.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Clean documentation. Automatically filed/e-mailed/archived. Very professional.

"Canvas review"

What do you like best?

It is very convenient that we can create custom sign offs and then adjust those sign offs in real time if changes are needed once we start to use the sign off in the field. Creating the sign offs is simple, the basics can be taught to someone new in just a couple of minutes.

The finished sign offs are clean and easy to navigate. The file sizes are also very manageable. The administration functions are simple as well and easy to figure out and navigate.

What do you dislike?

Canvas load very slowly on a mobile device. The website is also often slow to load.

We run into a lot of issues with people who have created an account already. We cannot add them to our apps/sign offs. This is an ongoing issue. The fix is straight forward (make them a new account with a different email address) but often this secondary email address is not their primary address and that sometime creates future issues.

On several occasions I have emailed questions to Canvas and received no answer or received and answer weeks later, which is pretty useless. I have also left phone messages and never received a call back.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We do installation work in retail stores. Canvas allows us to get a real time overview of the results of each install across Canada. We often receive the the complete sign off (including photos) before the installer leaves the site, so if there are issues we get them resolved before the installer even leaves. This eliminates a lot of revisits at our end.

We are also able to load the files into our database so that our clients have easy access to them. The fact the the file sizes are small and each sign off is customizable is a big win for us and our customers.

"Great app - with a few minor issues"

What do you like best?

This makes it easy for field technicians to get paperwork in immediately without the hassle of keeping up with a bunch of paperwork. This is also great for our customers to immediately get their work orders. Overall, very simple user interface, clean design.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes there are issues with submitting and submissions can be ruined when in a bad service area, creating duplicate work. This creates frustration for our users but issues are usually overcome with syncing or waiting for a better signal area. The load time between our software and Canvas to realize the work orders.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have a need for immediate information flow - this is the way to go. While it can be a little difficult to submit, issues are usually easy to resolve.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting work orders signed and to our customers immediately, easing the upkeep of paperwork for the technicians. Easy to get customer information over to a technician, they can see the address and contact number in the app.

Response from Keith Bateman of GoCanvas

Thanks for leaving a review!

I just wanted to let you know we're releasing a new Canvas feature that will have submissions automatically upload in the background if they fail to upload the first time you sync.

This will hopefully ease any frustration you have when trying to sync your Canvas data in bad coverage areas! Look for release notes on this soon.

If you have any other questions, feel free to email Support@gocanvas.com .

"My experience has been good "

What do you like best?

I like the ability to make the checklist in the app

What do you dislike?

I wish it was easier to make the pdf. If you make a change in the pdf document it doesn't update well. Pretty much you have to get it right the first time as making changes or updates does not seem to work well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

lt makes it nice to have field resources have a signoff sheet for onsite activities

Response from Keith Bateman of GoCanvas

Hi Daniel,

"Helpful but sometimes unreliable "

What do you like best?

From a client perspective this is a great tool. We are able to add questions that they want to have answered and involve the store.

What do you dislike?

It crashes and can be unreliable. It is sometimes too slow and froze twice today when I was using it. From a user perspective it is slow and increases the amount of time spent at each store, which results in lost revenue for my company. This is a good product, but if there were a similar product with better user capabilities, I would consider using that one instead.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be patient, it can be slow. Make sure you save your work and double check that everything has been sent.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a value added that we can supply to our customer. The benefits of the finished product vastly outweigh the negative.

Response from Keith Bateman of GoCanvas

Hello Sarah,

Thank you again for your review!

We're sorry to hear that you've had a couple small issues in the past, but we hope our massive UI/UX improvements across our IOS, Android, and Windows platforms will help to dramatically increase your daily efficiency with Canvas.

If you have any questions or feedback, please don't hesitate to call or email us at Support@gocanvas.com!

"Eliminate paper forms in your organisation"

What do you like best?

I like that the form creation tool is very user friendly. You can easily add elements to the form, customise those elements, and rearrange them. For example, you can add an 'image capture' element, which will allow users to upload images from the gallery or camera. You can customise the size of this image, so that the image doesn't fill the whole page. of the completed form. You can even customise whether the labels advising the user to upload to image appear below or above the image field. You can fine-tune the form just for your company's needs.

Other excellent features include:

-See statistics on the number of submissions for each type of form

-Assign users into groups. Each group can then have access to multiple forms.

-Forms can be completed by users even when they don't have a data connection.

What do you dislike?

The only thing i dislike is that there is now way to theme a form with your company's logo or company colours. I'm nitpicking though.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Canvas for any business wanting to get rid of inefficient and wasteful paper forms.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We mainly use canvas forms for our road services division. They perform assessments of traffic controller's to check if they are complying with the required safety equipment. Having electronic forms means:

-no longer wasting paper

-there's no paperwork to go missing

-forms can be modified when required

-handy features such as fetching location data from GPS - saves time having to fill out the address manually.

We've realised significant cost benefits after moving to this product.

"Simple useful tool"

What do you like best?

easy ability to add mobile functionality to our own main application without having to invest in a full system.

What do you dislike?

The api can be a bit glitchy when integrating information between our database and the canvas app.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

the main benefit is that we are able to bring in mobile devices to our eco system. the department I work in is not directly linked to the IT infrastructure and this app has allowed my team to create significant improvements on our own.

"GOCanvas"

What do you like best?

I like the Skip Logic being able to skip questions and pages based on responses.

What do you dislike?

I want to be able to test the form on my PC upon saving. Inability to test the app on the PC

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data collection and automation

Response from Keith Bateman of GoCanvas

Hi Danielle,

Thank you for the review!

In terms of being able to test and fill out apps from your PC, have you tried our Windows app?

We have totally revamped our Windows app to match the user interface of the Canvas IOS and Android apps so that you won't have to change the way you're collecting data just because you're on a PC.

"Intuitive, easy to use and reliable"

What do you like best?

We have implemented several canvas apps across our department allowing us to accurately capture data and produce reports where previously this information would be lost to all. Canvas's API has allowed us to push notification information to users quickly and reliably.

What do you dislike?

When creating new forms it would be helpful to be able to copy multiple fields in one go rather then copy each field individually.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Improved reporting of incidents across our entire business, better stakeholder engagement
