Digital Field Solutions partners with both large and small businesses to help them use mobile technology to increase performance and productivity while collecting data on the go.
Digital Field Solutions’ award-winning Formworks product is a key extension of Thinkproject’s Construction Intelligence platform for digitizing the construction industry.

Mobile Access to Vital Data Even In Offline Mode
Formworks is a workflow and self-service application builder that enables rapid process automation. It’s used to create personalized mobile and web types that can link to various data sources, such as SQL environments, CRM, ERP, and third-party applications. Access to complex logic, calculations, and validation is important in the building and engineering industries. Furthermore, new data must be collected and validated in areas where internet access is often restricted or absent or where security policies make it difficult to use technology to capture and collect the data required. By providing users with a low-code environment in which to create custom applications to capture, verify, and exchange complex field data, Formworks can easily solve data collection challenges.
“We are very proud to be part of Thinkproject’s expansion strategy,” says Tim Howard, co-founder of Digital Field Solutions. “Formworks is an excellent extension of Thinkproject’s construction intelligence solutions to solve data collection and validation challenges for construction teams across the three phases of design, build and operate. Besides, Formworks uses powerful browser-based technology to digitize dynamic forms and workflows through a simple interface. All regularly used business forms can be made available to all stakeholders involved in construction projects across multiple devices and platforms.” In addition, Tim adds; Becoming part of a large, successful software group will enable us to accelerate the development of Formworks to meet the rapidly evolving needs of all our clients and provide us with the platform to extend our reach into new territories and sectors across Europe.”
