quikformz; Mobility Solutions for Capturing Field Information for Enterprises
Computing is going mobile and in the consumer market, its adoption has been nothing short of a phenomenon. As of today, people have a greater affinity to consume information on mobile devices. This is because, the decision of adoption in the consumer space lies with the individual and hence it is easy to
influence the migration to a newer technology.The enterprise market is very different. IT admins are used to working with older devices and most of their operations are fixed. Adoption of a disruptive technology would mean large scale change at the organization, which isn’t always desirable. The avenue for large scale adoption for enterprise mobility lies in newer use cases which require mobility, and quikformz is one such mobile solution.

The SaaS Angle
Initially quikformz was offered as EMIP - Enterprise Mobile Integrated Platform, which was a blanket solution offered by Orbis Media Technologies. Krishna says that the vastness of the solution made it difficult to explain the underlying technology and its business usage to the customers. This resulted
in the decision to evolve quikformz as a solution with specific feature set that are based on the customer requirements.“We started offering of quikformz on SAAS to provide customized solutions to our clients. With every implementation and different client requirements we made quikformz a complete customization solution to suit requirements of customers from different industry verticals,” shares Krishna.
