[Video] iFormBuilder Integration with ArcGIS Collector

Workflow Automation | Project Monitoring

Discover how the Zerion and Esri relationship is a solution for your most detailed mapping projects!

iFormBuilder devices Zerion integrates with over 40 software solutions. If you are looking to enhance the mapping aspect of a mobile data collection project or if a project requires a visual mapping component, the Zerion and Esri integration is a must! You can build a custom solution using the Esri ArcGIS Collector App,the Zerion Esri Connector and the Esri widget in Form Builder. Visualizing the mapping information is just the first step.

Just like adding layers to a map can tell you so much more than just viewing one layer, having advanced data collection allows for capturing more data to complete a story.

With the Esri and Zerion integration, your field teams are able to locate their next assignment, view it on a map, and then use one of the many Zerion widgets like the barcode scanner to look up data, scan barcodes that are attached to specific pieces of equipment, manage inventory, or scan badges. Field users can take pictures to identify what has been fixed, complete multipage subforms (related tables), log the number of hours it took to complete the assignments, calculate totals, add their signature, assign the form to other users or managers and so much more.

In the video above, Ben Ray shows the power of using Zerion and ArcGIS Collector as a solution for your field projects!  The video walks through an example of a custom workflow for work orders. This workflow starts in the iForm App using the Esri Widget to drop a point/location on a map. From there, see how seamless the data flows between the Esri and Zerion Platforms!
