The Power of Flexibility

Feb 2, 2022

It’s really great when you can run a quick online search, find a solution that will meet your team’s needs exactly, and jump right in.


Sure. But, generally that’s not exactly how it happens. In fact… when it does happen, you might be missing the most important thing. Confused yet? That’s okay: let’s dive in.

One-Size-Fits-All Solutions are Great: Until They’re Not

Here’s the thing: one-size-fits-all solutions can be excellent choices for mobile data collection if what you need is simple, straightforward, and the same as everyone else in your industry. In that case, they might meet your needs right where you are.

But often, that’s not the case.

Often, data collection is just the beginning – the start of something more.

What do you hope to do with the data after you collect it? Send it to Excel? Manually sort it and create reports? Scrape it for the information you need?

What systems do you need that data to talk to or feed into? Or – what systems to do you need to pull information from to make your data make sense?

If your answers to any of these questions are less-than-generic, you may need something more. You may require flexibility that few solutions can offer.

What Flexibility Looks Like in Action…

When we – here at Zerion – talk to those interested in learning more about iFormBuilder and our end-to-end solution offerings, sometimes we have a hard time defining what exactly our software does. Yes – it starts with data: the solution allows users to collect data (using fully customized forms), on the mobile devices they already carry, both on and offline.

But that’s where the fun just begins.

From there we help our customers do what makes the most sense for their business needs.

Send the data to Salesforce? Sure.

Create custom reports? Absolutely.

Help line the data up to create inventory reports, sometimes pulling information from or sending to an accounting system? Of course.

You see – there’s power in flexibility.

By being able to talk with multiple systems, after data is collected in custom forms – full of the features that make sense for each individual customer (visit our iFormBuilder page for specifics), you can make sure you’re using your data to its utmost potential, deriving live insights, eliminating duplicate manual efforts, reducing the potential for errors, and increasing efficiency by an average of 66%.
