Data capture and analytics
B2W Inform collects, combines and analyzes data from forms developed by the application. This provides companies with an effective, enterprise-wide system that expands the scope and quality of data mining, eliminates time-consuming manual efforts and opens up opportunities for advanced reporting and alerts.

Offline as well as online functionality
With the mobile app, contractors can use B2W Inform in an offline mode at sites without Internet connectivity or in situations when limiting data utilization can cut costs. Forms are downloaded in advance and then synched easily for distribution and reporting as soon as a connection is established.
Reports and dashboards generated by B2W Inform turn data into actionable business intelligence. This reporting provides insight into trends and processes, enhances analytics and data-driven decision making and expands collaboration. The Report Scheduling feature even allows users to manage one-off or recurring reports and deliver them by e-mail at scheduled times.
Immediate, event-driven alerts
Automated alerts triggered by events or incidents documented in an electronic form can be delivered to selected recipients by E-mail, text or in the Inform application to alert employees immediately. This allows them to correct or adjust operations faster, prevent problems and keep everyone in the know.
Fast, easy drag-and-drop form template creation
B2W Inform makes it easy to break free from the rigidity and manual effort of standard programs and customize templates and forms to meet specific needs. No graphic design or IT skills are required. The extensive palette of drag-and-drop options includes:
- Text Areas
- Pick Lists
- Media Capture
- And More…
Customized forms and a free library to get started
Highly configurable form templates enable contractors to collect the specific data they need, manage fewer forms and meet all health, safety and regulatory requirements. B2W even provides a free library of user-ready form templates for common use cases.
Data binding of form fields to unified B2W operational data
Data binding form fields – such as employee, equipment or job lists – to a unified database speeds up the process and guarantees accuracy and consistency. There is no need to search for correct information or make guesses. Everything is available within the form via data-bound fields. When the central database is updated, so are the options on any linked forms.
Automated routing and approvals
With the Inform Approve/Deny Workflow feature, an employee filling out a form can add one or more reviewers to the form. These levels of approval have built-in routing sequences and notifications to ensure a structured workflow.
B2W Inform administrators set the parameters for who can create form templates, fill out specific forms, approve or deny forms, and access resulting data.
Adaptive user interfaces
This B2W Inform feature automatically conforms the application to the device – desktop, tablet or smartphone.
