The order in which a field worker performs their work should be reflected in the mobile application. For example, if a Job Safety Audit needs to be done before starting any work, then the application should enforce the completion of this form before the worker is allowed to progress further.
Different types of work needs different work flows. Retriever makes it easy for the application to accurately match existing business processes. For example, a maintenance job may require the field worker to select an asset and then complete an asset tasking form related to that asset type. In contrast, an audit or inspection may require an inspection form to be completed, and therefore the asset ‘module’ is not presented for that job type.
With Retriever Formbuilder customized forms can be created that include workflows based on question answers. Different questions can be displayed that are dependent on an answer from a previous question. Or a whole page can be made visible when a particular answer is given. For example, if a question such as “Is additional work required?” is answered with ‘Yes’ then a new page can become visible that records answers related to the additional work.
The flexibility of work related workflows, in conjunction with detailed workflow within the forms, gives the field worker an application that follows their existing business processes and presents the right questions and information at the right time.
