Organic Certification Application Forms
Personalized forms assist over 700 applicants per year.
“Our forms are pushing the limits for the volume of information users are submitting,” Lash shared.
VOF’s main use case is the application for organic certification. This application is used for over 700 clients per year, and it can be tailored to suit the needs of each applicant. VOF certifies everything from fresh produce, to livestock products, to shelf-stable goods, and they rely on customizable forms to gather the appropriate information from each producer.
The simplicity and design of each form is a huge help to both the staff and clients at VOF. Although not everyone who submits an application is technologically-savvy, prefilled and repeatable sections allow for a simple way to collect information from any client looking to obtain organic certification, instead of what used to be a cumbersome paper process.
Inspection Report Forms
Web forms help inspectors eliminate paper packets and ensure data accuracy
VOF also utilizes FormAssembly to streamline their site inspection process. Once an initial application form is received by VOF staff, it’s reviewed and turned over to the team’s inspectors who have a community login and can complete the inspection report section of the form. Previously, office staff would have to create elaborate paper packets to give to inspectors before they went to a client’s site to conduct the inspection.
FormAssembly’s repeatable sections cut down on the time it takes for inspectors to submit pertinent information, and the prefilled fields help ensure data accuracy. In the future, VOF’s goal is to equip their inspectors with tablets, so that they can easily complete inspection report forms while out in the field.
