Comments: Formation has brought a huge convenience and efficiency to CNS operations. We have been able to reduce our management overheads by employing a digital solutions rather than a paper based solution. In addition, Formation Software brings all our customer data back into a central repository.

Comments: DIS chose to implement the Professional version of Formation Software. Initially, it was used by Technical Consultants to improve the processing of Technical Site Surveys. Subsequently, Formation has been rolled out to the other areas of the business. Utilising the power and flexibility of Formation Software, DIS achieved a return on their investment within a matter of months. The levels of savings generated for DIS has been demonstrated as Formation has been deployed into other areas of the business.

Following the success of our initial pilot, Formation Software is now also being used by DIS¿ engineers. Lead Engineers can now access site plans and photos on a tablet, which puts the information they need for each job at their fingertips. It allows them to take photographs on device as proof that procedures have been followed correctly. The e-signature tool is a fantastic benefit to enable customer consent to be gathered on device. Completed jobs are passed instantly to the back office system so that DIS¿ accounts team can process the data much more quickly.

Reduction in admin days has led to a more streamline approach.

Comments: Formation has reduced the amount of admin time required by approx 3 hours per survey submitted. On this basis the pay back period is anticipated to be around 6 weeks! A very good investment.

We are now rolling it out to other departments to simplify the expenses and mileages claims of our remote workers.

Very impressed - I became a Formation reseller too!

Comments: I originally signed up as a Formation client to implement digital data collection in my own organisation. It soon became clear to me that Formation Software would be a great asset to some of my other clients. I decided to become a reseller and am now successfully selling Formation Software into the IT sector.
