Now more than ever, businesses and consumers rely on mobile platforms and experiences to conduct business. Consider these three telling facts from TechCrunch:
- The app industry experienced a record 218 billion downloads and $143 billion in global consumer spending in 2020.
- Consumers spent 3.5 trillion minutes using apps on Android devices in 2020.
- In 2019, mobile-first companies had a combined $544 billion valuation, 6.5 times higher than those without a mobile focus.
Apps create opportunities to give employees and customers tailored experiences wherever they are. Creating an app used to require hiring a developer and navigating the complexities of Apple’s App Store and Google Play, which meant waiting months for a launch.
But not anymore with Jotform Apps, a no-code, no-fuss app builder. Today we’re sharing three practical ways Jotform Enterprise clients can incorporate Jotform Apps into their business, nonprofit, or institution.
Jotform Enterprise offers a custom-branded app to seamlessly collect, manage, and collaborate on data.
3 ways Jotform Apps can power your enterprise business
1. Create portals for every department
As highlighted above, mobile apps are attracting a lot of time and money from businesses and consumers. Given the average 4.2 hours per day consumers spend on apps, it’s worth considering which aspects of your business might benefit from an app.
If you’ve been considering an app but haven’t had the time or the resources to build one, consider these examples for using Jotform Apps to increase efficiency and meet your employees and customers where they are.
Use Jotform Apps to keep your employees safe as they return to work. Customize and host COVID-19 response forms to monitor office visits and screen employees and visitors for COVID-19 symptoms. With the Jotform Apps simple drag-and-drop builder, it’s easy to record and store all your screening data to trace potential exposures and manage capacity limits.
Do you manage a finance department? Consider a Jotform no-code app to facilitate expense reporting. Help ensure that reports are complete and processed efficiently by posting FAQs, how-to guides, and links to video tutorials to guide employees through the steps.
Create workflows to notify employees when requests are received, in review, or approved. Use the existing image upload, PDF, and digital signature tools to streamline your process further.
Time to celebrate a job well done, host a team building event, or organize a community service day? Create an app to facilitate your event. From soliciting ideas to collecting and managing RSVPs to sharing post-event pictures — the possibilities are endless with Jotform Apps. Let’s get this party started!
2. Streamline administrative tasks
Raise your hand if you like administrative tasks. OK, maybe you do, and that’s great. However, if you’d prefer to automate these tasks to maximize time and resources, Jotform Apps is a great way to do so.

Is your industry heavily regulated? Track, automate, and manage required training courses and certifications with a Jotform app. Host training documents and videos, design a workflow to remind supervisors and staff of important deadlines, collect electronic signatures and award certifications, and maintain a history of completed state and federally mandated training. Red tape? Not so much.
Do you work in logistics or shipping? Create an app to make it easier for drivers to report on inventory, deliveries, delays, hours worked, needed vehicle maintenance, and more from the road. Having an app makes it easy for employees in the field to complete these tasks wherever their work takes them, keeping you better informed in real time.

3. Build a knowledge base
A common pain point in large organizations is the siloing of information. Knowing where to find and having access to the resources you need to do your job can lead to faster, more informed decisions and greater job satisfaction. Empower people with the data they need through a Jotform no-code app.
Human resources (HR) teams spend a lot of time sharing information with employees and recruiters alike. Use Jotform Apps to streamline communication across the HR spectrum.
Create a self-service model for remote and in-house recruiting teams by hosting job descriptions, recruiting guidelines, and job board logins in one convenient location. Goodbye, emails and attachments. Hello, direct updates to an app.
And, because you’re an Enterprise customer, you can customize your app’s domain to reinforce your branding and reassure your visitors that they are in the right place.
Help new hires get oriented with apps dedicated to onboarding, training, and review cycles. Use pages within your apps to organize onboarding documents, time-off and vacation policies, and benefit offerings.
Manage employee growth and satisfaction by hosting professional development courses and videos, conducting engagement surveys, and gathering 360 feedback across departments. Jotform’s integrations and security standards make it easy to collect and store information, ensuring a smooth, seamless experience.
If you manage customer service or IT support teams, consider building an app to provide easy access to the critical information they need every day. From scripts, user guides, and FAQs, to links to details on infrastructure updates, you can build a robust database to respond to a variety of questions. Consider creating pages within your app to organize by topic, platform, service plans, etc.
You can also use pages to feature checklists for routine quality assurance tests when new products or services launch. Add a photo upload option so testers can submit screenshots directly through the app. With real-time updates and easy accessibility, apps are a great way to keep your teams informed and responsive to evolving business and customer needs.
