Forms — Make Them Digital


Click to enlarge form

Converting traditional paper forms to digital forms is easy, saves time and provides increased functionality. I’ve created digital forms for 30 day customer meetings, material orders, selection sheets, site safety evaluations and more. I like digital forms because they are always neat and have a professional appearance. And best of all; no one has to figure out my handwriting!


Consider the Final Inspection form: (above)

The table below compares the paper version to an electronic version.
