GoCanvas is ideal for any company that dispatches individuals to sites or locations and then those individuals have to do some sort of report or form to turn in and then send to their clients. The dispatch function adds a lot of power to the platform to allow one traceable documentation from scheduling to the finalization of the report. The best part is that it can be customized to any trade or function out there. It also is handy for mechanics or any other trade that needs to log info at their destinations and submit those to an office or client

Google Surveys is perfect when trying to collaborate with co-workers and find a date & time that works best for them to get together, whether it's for a regular meeting, team photo session, celebratory dinner, or Christmas celebration. It's also great for getting feedback on proposed changes that would affect the team.

Pros
Canvas
  • GoCanvas can adapt to you and the structure of your company. Our documents were sometimes a work in progress, and it was easy to change them when needed.
  • GoCanvas made my Sales Team more efficient and structured. We had set documents they needed to fill out and within those documents, certain areas needed to be completed before they could move forward, which enabled my team to be more accurate and fully detailed.

  • Measure the pulse of how our members are feeling (yes/no questions, multiple-choice questions).
  • Learn how students are doing with specific projects (textual-based questions, essay-type answers).
  • Run an election for board members (use of the "other" notation so that people can write in their own choices).

  • While it is very intuitive, there are many ways you can fine-tune your survey (such as word limits, counts, etc) and these are not always obvious where those settings are.
  • I would like to see some ways of changing the formatting (and maybe I just haven't explored that yet), ie: colors, set up on the screen.

Relatively simple so that those who are less than familiar with computers can figure it out. User friendly and already embedded with other Google products. Receives an 8 because many features available with Google Surveys are also available with similar, free products on the internet today. Good, but not stellar.

This is by far the only area where I think that there is room for improvement because Google does not respond as fast as I would like them to. We live in a fast-paced world and this is probably the only area where Google can improve on and as a teacher, I find it challenging to wait for a day or two for a response when everything that I am doing in the Google Classroom is running instantly and with no breaks in between.

I selected Google Surveys to create them because it was free and helped to improve our overall information and data. It was easy to build it into our systems and get the data. Other survey providers have offered a larger variety of options, which have helped even more - but the higher costs were not worth the extra money.

Return on Investment
Canvas
  • GoCanvas has streamlined our communication, dispatch and reporting to reduce errors and wasted time. The impact is not exactly measurable, but it has been a substantial impact.
  • It has automated many of the admin functions necessary for processing reports prior to using GoCanvas. We were able to cut one full admin position and reduce another to part time which has saved us money.

  • Team members are more apt to respond quickly to a Google Survey request rather than a normal email - makes my job as an admin easier.
  • Easy to check on who hasn't responded - that way I only have to one-on-one follow up with select individuals instead of everyone.
  • You can customize the survey to your team's specific brand, which is especially handy if sent to those outside of our work sphere.
