Fixxbook.com Launches Mobile App Store for Contractors -- Empowering Mobile Workforces to Join in the Mobile App Revolution(August 09, 2011)
Reston, VA and New York, NY (PRWEB) August 09, 2011
Fixxbook.com announced today the launch of their mobile application store designed to provide mobile apps that will enable contractors and facility managers to drop their clipboards and pick up their Smartphones and Tablets to replace paper-based processes. Powered by Canvas at http://www.gocanvas.com/fixxbook, Fixxbook apps are fully customizable by users and support the broadest set of mobile devices including Android, Android Tablets, BlackBerry, iPhone, iPad, Windows Mobile Devices and Windows XP+ devices.
Built on the Canvas platform, fixxbook now offers contractors and facility managers a way to find Form apps such as work orders, proposals, maintenance forms, inspection forms, time sheets and much more quickly and easily. Users can modify these apps to fit their specific business needs and even take their current paper-based forms and rapidly turn them into mobile apps. Users can incorporate features that take a company well beyond paper forms, such as GPS/location, image capture, electronic signatures and accessibility to parts/pricing catalogs and labor schedules. Once a contractor or facility manager uses their app, a PDF is automatically generated and can be emailed and/or accessed through a secure, online account. Data can also be downloaded into an Excel spreadsheet or directly into popular back-end systems such as QuickBooks, QuickBase and others through simple integration, effectively eliminating the need for manually intensive paper-based forms.
Our principal objective at fixxbook.com is to introduce technology solutions that support and streamline the relationship between facilities managers and contractors. Our partnership with Canvas will provide effective mobile solutions that will ultimately reduce operating costs for both the contractor and facilities professionals. Eric Schechter, President of fixxbook.com
