Never underestimate the power of a slick, well-designed form. When your job is designing custom legal solutions, tailor-fit to each specific client, data harvesting becomes extremely important. Collecting bulk data - accurately - allows you to design a better solution en masse.
Our platform of choice depends entirely on the data to be gathered, and how it is to be displayed. Our go-to's consist of Adobe Acrobat Professional, Formidable Forms Business Grade & Google Forms.
Gathering data, or rather "collecting" data (perhaps stated more accurately and appropriately when using embedded web forms), is not good enough - one must determine the best way to organize and store back-end submissions, conduct calculations, and display results through readily accessible means available to your entire team.
We like to keep our key business forms, such as LEAD TRACKER, EXPENSE TRACKER, and INCOME TRACKER available to logged in editors, right through our website. The team can quickly enter data anywhere in the world, so long as they have an internet connection.
From there, form entries are typically exported to spreadsheet, where they're passed through different formulas, then the results interpreted. Multiple forms collect data within consolidated workbooks, and the key elements, sums, and results are displayed through charts, graphs, and tables on one, single, sheet.
The final step involves embedding these spreadsheets, or at least key columns and totals, back up on to our site. This step allows Admins and management the ability to quickly view a piece of information wherever they find themselves, assuming they have an internet connection.
If you're new to forms; if something here has peaked your interest, and your curiosity about how your opportunity may be advanced harnessing the power of form data collection and display, run a few web searches about the power of Acrobat Pro. Then shoot me a text. I wish you nothing but success and the best of luck.
