GoCanvas is a cloud-based system suitable for field service companies, including electrical, HVAC, pest control and plumbing. The solution is designed to work on any smartphone or tablet and can also be accessed via a PC.
Contact management, billing and invoicing, work order management and scheduling and dispatch are all offered as standalone options, so users can choose just one or combine applications to best fit the company’s needs as the business grows and software needs evolve.
GoCanvas allows for data integration, and the data auto-populates into the customized apps. This data can then be shared, and the system encrypts it to ensure that it is transmitted safely and securely.
Users have the ability to choose from thousands of apps to create a fully customized solution for their business.
Jenny from World Impact Network
I like that it is extremely user friendly and can be figured out quickly. It makes online learning less intimidating.
It is expensive to use as a platform for our start up school.
Try the demo or find a student who uses it to let you explore.
Ben from Larry H. Miller Sports and Entertainment
The ease of use for learners, teachers, and admins is hard to beat. There is so much functionality with very little work in maintenance.
Its hard to find something really bad. The only thing I can think of is if you want customization for an organization, the thresholds for users is maybe a bit high.
If you have any sort of learning institute within your organization, whether corporate or not, this can be a useful tool. If you have classes that involve coursework over time, this is the best way to organize the course, distribute information to the learners, and have learners submit work and interact with each other and the instructor.
Liz from S&D Commercial Services
We began using this product just a short six months ago. It has changed the way our company does business and performs job duties. From the moment I contacted GoCanvas to this very day, they have gone above and beyond to help us with all our needs. GoCanvas is a very innovative company and goes the distance to ensure the satisfaction of us customers.
GoCanvas is consistently working on updates and upgrades to the product to meet customers' needs.
Inform your representative of what you would like to achieve in regards to better efficiency in your company or your work. They know a lot about this product and can help in ways you never thought they could.
Joe from United Hoisting & Scaffolding Corp
I like the ability to take any piece of paper, turn it digitally, and make it seamless for us and our employees. We look more professional on projects, and there is no more losing papers.
I can't say that there's anything that I don't like.
Work with the crew to create your sheets. This is similar to any other program you put in place in that if you don't use it, it cannot help you. Create your sheets, learn it, use it, and worry about other things.

I can modify the app to do just about anything I need it to do for our company. We can verify who made the deliveries, who signs for the deliveries, where the deliveries occurred via gps, what items were delivered, and more. We aren't in the dark ages anymore, we can now lookup these items at any time via the online website vs looking through old folders of information!
Some of the operations can seem clunky and a little less intuitive. Once you learn them, it isn't hard to master, but it may not work the way you would originally think.
Joseph from Citywide cart service
Very easy to use and universal. Also the ability to create many apps and assign them to specific users
Printing submissions. It would be great to be able to print a batch selection and not have to open each submission
Amber from Titletown Oil
Easy to customize to your needs and great accessibility for drivers on the road. Love the scan feature so that we can keep track of inventory at lot easier.
Data is not easily manipulated and there is a lot of clicking back and forth between screens. Wish there were ways to customize the screens of data.
Edin from Southern Power District
Employees number: 51-200 employees
Eliminated paper forms, improved tracking, data storage, and improved accuracy.
It is easy to design an app and it was very intuitive for our crew to figure out how to use it. The ability to take pictures in the form really improved out accuracy and error finding. The fact that everything was stored in the cloud really improved our record keeping ability.
The price isn't really worth it for the functionality that we use. We pay for things that we do not use.
JEAN from MUSTANG PARKS AND RECREATION

Use this before making decisions.
forms available to staff on galaxy pad and can be filled out after an incident quickly. Also no stacks of incident forms on my desk. Awesome. Able to set up test runs while rest of staff learned the system and still be able to group rates if we wish.
A bit expensive for small department with many users. otherwise happy. The system seems to be easy to use, no issue there.
Cody from AIS
The software is easy to configure, and can capture just about any data you are looking for from the field.
The builder could have more features, and the integration features could be developed further. Overall not that many cons.
Paul from The Road Code

GoCanvas was the first and the only solution that we decided upon for our paperless contract documentation. We love the easy to use an app and the ability to scale with future employees. If We had one complaint it would the learning curve it takes to set up a new form. But once you understand how to build it everything is a snap.
It does what it says and paperless documentation has streamlined our process
The learning curves to build new forms.
Experiment with the different features. It'll be worth your time
Jared from Competitive Excavation
Works great, easy to use, but if you don't use the dispatch feature it feels overpriced for what you'll be looking to spend.

GoCanvas has absolutely changed how JOTS Computer Services, Inc. delivers services to its customers. Truly as simple as Click-Submit-Done, Yes, that easy. From sales, tech support to the development team, GoCanvas delivers the Wow factor in all that they do. Thanks GoCanvas!
The continuous and creative development of the GoCanvas App. Never gets stale, always looking to improve the user experience, ease of use and value of the App.
I have honestly experience no cons with GoCanvas.
If you are stuck on the outdate pencil and paper, you need to take a look at how GoCanvas can change your life. And you can even test GoCanvas for a FREE trial.
Melissa from Rocky Mountain Redline LLC
One of the customer rep .went above and beyond solving an invoicing issue I had. The fault was all mine, but he still went above and beyond to be sure I remained a satisfied customer.
sharon from Mi Skn Clinic
I love GoCanvas App. I love the fact that I have gone virtually paperless. I have over 35 consent forms for clients to complete for my clinic, some of which can be up to 10 pages long. GoCanvas offers me(1) environmental friendly service (2) extra space- as I don't need filing cabinets (3) I never have to worry about a client consent form going missing, as I have an email back up as well as online filing system- this is reassuring from a litigation perspective. (4) GoCanvas offers me a comprehensive client record system i.e. I can take pre & post op photos prior to my clinic treatments- a requisite for some procedures from an insurance perspective.(5) support is prompt & friendly (6) its cost effective for y business, as I dont need to invest in software .. I would highly recommend it for any forward thinking business.
Trent from CCDs metro
Great product and support team.
Karen from FTS
Customer support is awesome! Really helps you find the best solution to your issue.
Bill from City of Newnan
Finally, a cost-effective, customizable solution to complete our building inspection process of going digital. The GoCanvas apps eliminates our paper forms and constant scanning of documents. The email fields allows for the final documents to be instantly emailed to others as they are completed. This saves time once spent scanning, sifting and distributing scanned documents. The reduction of errors is difficult to calculate monetarily, but easy to realize once you start using the apps. Embedding photos and drawings inside the apps is a huge plus and the final documents have a professional appearance. Of course this is not possible without the exceptional customer service GoCanvas provides. Highly recommend this product and company.
GoCanvas has been incredible to work with. Our business is in Electrical Contracting, and GoCanvas designed a form on their app so that our employees don't need to fill out paper work tickets anymore. They also installed a barcode scanning system, so that our employees can scan items that they take from our warehouse to use at the jobsite. GoCanvas also give the ability to export those work tickets into a CSV or XML file, which means we can actually import those scans from their work tickets into our job costing software. It does so much more than we ever expected it to, which has made our switch to GoCanvas a seamless transition, and our employees who use it love it!
But the best part about GoCanvas is their Customer Service. I've had issues mapping some updates I made to the app, and was in a hurry to get it taken care of (before our employees were going to scan), and they got my message and called me immediately. Their response time is great, and they make sure they actually help solve the problem if there is one.
I can't say too many good things about their company, and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to consolidate their paper forms into a paperless app.
Ease of Use
Laura from Plus Value Marketing Services
We use this app for our visual merchandising campaigns, and its awesome.. lets us have on time reports, with easy to fill check list for our team and no effort or any other process needed.
Helps us work better and give better results to our clients, really easy to use and with a great customer service support.
Robert from Grand Set Autoglass
I wanted this software when my previous million dollar employer didn't care to be open to innovation. They didn't care to hear about an environmentally friendly supply usage app that would've reduced spending costs, and greatly reduced a large paper footprint in our world.
Recently, I've started my own company and my business now thrives from it. I'm not a software engineer and this program is user friendly so that I don't have to be an engineer. It's always evolving. I was just recently stuck on updating my company format... Ellen Weintraub, a customer service rep, chimed in and asked to help. She was able to solve my problem very efficiently.
I received a very positive response from this software. I was even able to cancel 2 very expensive subscriptions that this software has now replaced. All of my work is digital, and most of my customers prefer to be emailed.
I'd also like to extend my gratitude to Jason Good. He was the original customer service rep that reached out to me a few years ago, when I was trying to promote a better way for my previous employer to do business.
My advise to anyone reading this. If you work for a million dollar company that won't take a few minutes out of their day to at least listen to an idea that could possible save them money...it's time for a new company...with this software, and pricing, why not start your own company !!
Thank you very, very, much ! Go Canvas !
Tim from City of Shoreview
GoCanvas provides an easy and quick method for converting paper forms to electronic forms. We've had a couple of forms that we struggled trying to convert to electronic forms because of the information/process that was required for these forms. GoCanvas provided a solution that was easy and quick to learn, which in the long run, saves us time, materials and labor. The only downside I found is the inability to search historical records obtained by the submitted electronic forms.
Mike from Truss Plate Institute
We have been using the GoCanvas application since 2011 primarily for our inspection forms used by our inspection agents. The GoCanvas application has simplified our process both for ourselves and our customers. When and agent completes his report it gets sent electronically to the customer and to the home office where it is further reviewed and filed. All of this used to be done manually with hard copies. GoCanvas has made the process much more efficient and cost effective. The templates they provide and the associated tools to customize your forms to fit your needs are great. If you every have questions or issues the support staff at GoCanvas has also been outstanding. I highly recommend using GoCanvas.
Kedrick from CSI
GoCanvas does a great job of eliminating paper documents and streamlining data collection from my crews in the field.
The forms I have created using GoCanvas make it so no information is ever left out of missing because someone forgot a step.
