Using Dashboards to Make Smarter Business Decisions

The best business decisions come from having all the information you need at your fingertips. If you’re missing even one data point, you can make million-dollar mistakes or put your employees in harm’s way. That’s where dashboards come in. Organizations have been using dashboards in one form or another to bring buried business insights to light and provide an overview of key data since the era of Pong and Apple: the 1970’s. But it took several decades for technology to catch up to business leaders’ appetite for real-time analytics and the type of data processing that could truly transform their business. It wasn’t until advances like data warehousing and online analytical processing of the 1990’s that businesses were finally able to use current data to make timely decisions. This breakthrough coincided with the advent of key performance indicators (KPIs) in business strategy, and before long, dashboards evolved into an all-in-one view of a company’s most important KPIs. Today, business leaders across all industries use real-time digital dashboards to monitor which of their processes are working, which need to be ramped up, and which need to be eliminated or dialed back. A manufacturer or construction company might use a project management dashboard to show cost variances, planned vs actual schedules, or earned value. Or a utility might create an efficiency dashboard that shows insights based on energy production and outages. No matter the vertical, dashboards are a vital piece of the decision-making puzzle. The key is knowing how to create them without breaking the bank.  No-code: An inexpensive way to create customized dashboards It can take a lot of time and effort to create a dashboard that pulls in all the data your teams need. In today’s climate, that’s not an easy sell. And buying off-the-shelf software and applications isn’t a quick fix. They demand a tradeoff: you can quickly launch the software but you can’t necessarily customize it to your specific KPIs. That’s where no-code platforms can help.  No-code development platforms like AppSheet make it easy for anyone in your organization (including those who don’t have technical chops) to build a custom application. The result? You can use existing data that might otherwise collect dust and use it to derive business insights and share them in a customizable, interactive dashboard view that pulls in key metrics from across your app for at-a-glance access. And you don’t need developers or data scientists; products like AppSheet’s  dashboard view lets you easily control the data presented and how it’s displayed. You can include decks, tables, charts, galleries, maps, details, forms, and more in a single snapshot that’s also interactive. Share dashboards across teams No-code apps like this built with AppSheet also make it easy to capture and digitize real-world processes and share that information in real time through a dashboard view. Let’s say you have a construction team building a new shopping mall. Your site manager is in charge of hundreds of workers’ progress but won’t be able check in with each one to ensure they’re on task.  Your app can gather and share locations and project updates and notify the site manager when certain events happen, like a worker entering a fall zone or the crew missing a project milestone. The manager can see all of these details in real time on the app’s dashboard and stay up to date quickly.  Or perhaps you work for an auto manufacturer. You need to make sure that every part is installed correctly and that each step of the vehicle-production process is signed off on by an authorized technician. With a dashboard view on your no-code app, your managers can quickly see who inspected which parts and approved systems, and when they did it. Executives can keep tabs on the high-level business productivity, timing, and budget insights to make decisions about headcount, equipment, and more. Gain online visibility into offline processes Sending important information from the field to the office (and other locations) can be tricky without digitizing the information. If a utility company is using an array of offline tools and methods to track usage, outages, KWh production, and other plant and field data, they can’t easily share need-to-know information with the right teams in real time. But with no-code development, anyone on your team can build an app with a dashboard that executives can use to understand expenditures, track customers with outages, and even identify regulators who need to monitor energy production and pricing. While dashboards come in many forms, it’s important that they deliver simple, high-level insights about the KPIs that matter most. AppSheet’s no-code applications with interactive dashboard views make it easy for anyone to build an affordable, customizable, business insights snapshot, and share it with decision-makers so they can stay informed, up to date, and in the know about important projects.

Using Internal Apps to Prevent Customer Churn

Low customer churn is critical to business success, and is especially urgent during a recession when new customers might be harder to come by. Research indicates that 63% of consumers will abandon a product or service after just one poor experience, underlining that strong customer retention relies on strong customer satisfaction, regardless of the state of the economy. Equipping employees with the tools to build their own custom internal apps is one way businesses are lowering their customer churn by maintaining high customer satisfaction, while also streamlining internal operations to better serve customers throughout the sales and support cycle.  For example, sales and marketing teams are often closest to the customer experience, yet are also often the least well-equipped to improve their own processes with custom app solutions. With the help of no-code development platforms, all process owners (including non-technical employees) can create internal apps that are custom-built to company-specific, team-specific, and even project-specific requirements. Businesses find that internal processes can be improved by the process owners themselves; in addition, data collection and sharing can be digitized for greater accuracy, so the customer ultimately benefits from a smooth experience. Let’s take a closer look at three ways companies are using internal apps to improve customer retention over time: Stay informed Keeping all team members on the same page is critical to reducing customer churn — and to earning the trust of new customers. Internal apps can help teams work together and to present one external voice to the customer by streamlining communications through commenting and workflow reporting. For example, multiple teams working with the same customer or client can add notes to an internal app to ensure that anyone who touches the account fully understands its history and can quickly get up-to-speed without disruption to the consumer.  To maintain a pulse on customer satisfaction, many businesses extend their custom internal apps to identify warning signals for customer dissatisfaction by allowing the app to correlate consumer behavior with information around churn. With no-code development, process owners in sales and marketing can create internal apps that alert them to changes, as triggers can be built in to notify team members when key performance indicators dip into the churn danger zone. Know your customers Customer health scores are critical to maintaining internal tools that predict churn. However, because companies rely on a litany of metrics to create these unique scores, finding an off-the-shelf solution for data collection and analysis can be quite difficult.  No-code platforms are stepping in to allow people and teams to build reliable models that keep data clean in a way that’s customized specifically for them, which results in more accurate trend data over time. Outdated data input systems like pen and paper or digital spreadsheets that introduce human error can be replaced with customized apps that allow for the automatic flow of data from apps like Salesforce or Marketo. The equation behind a customer’s ever-changing health score is honed over weeks, months, and even years, and custom apps are able to flex with these changes while keeping data secure and streamlined. Deliver on time Point-of-sale is only the beginning of the customer journey. Whether it’s goods, services, or a brand promise, businesses must follow through on prompt delivery to maintain customer trust. This is particularly relevant in industries like retail and manufacturing, where inventory management can be a complex task and customers need the ability to track their purchases even before they leave the warehouse. To help simplify and streamline delivery, businesses are turning to customized inventory control apps to track assets, capital, and output.  For example, with no-code development, floor managers can create inventory tracking apps that integrate with barcode and optical character recognition (OCR) scanners, cloud databases, and data visualization to track products in real time. With continual tracking in place, both the company and the consumer can access the exact location of inventory to better ensure an on-time delivery.  Inventory apps can also help reduce manufacturing carrying costs, eliminate waste and delays, and increase worker productivity by providing valuable information on the efficacy of processes and managers. Apps compatible with barcode scanners can record work-in-progress inventory over time, and the accumulated data can be used for anything from cost-benefit analysis to workforce optimization to reducing a product’s time-to-consumer. Preventing customer churn starts with accurate data, and relies on well-informed employees, streamlined processes, and long-term analysis to improve retention. By adopting no-code platforms, companies can greatly increase their ability to prevent customer churn by providing employees with the tools to discover, build, and maintain customer relationships that last far beyond the first sale.

No-Code Development Saves Time and Money by Bridging the IT-Business Gap

Virtually every business is now digital in some form or other, with organizations heavily relying on digital systems and tools to engage internally and externally. As a result, IT teams play a key role in most large- and many medium-sized companies. But businesses that weren’t born digital — including those in traditional industries such as manufacturing, utilities, and construction — often struggle to bridge the gap between business and IT teams.  No-code platforms can help those on the business side easily build and maintain key apps, reducing development and communications churn, saving money, and creating more relevant user experiences. At the same time, often-overburdened IT department are freed up to focus on mission-critical network and infrastructure initiatives.  Save time and communications churn with no-code App development can be a time-consuming, inbox-filling experience; and many companies spin their wheels as IT and business teams try to align on development. Like the analogy of too many cooks in the kitchen, app development initiatives often have too many voices at the table, working at cross purposes as they try to define requirements, design the user experience, and develop a solution that meets everyone’s goals and needs.  Since no-code platforms do not require coding skills, business teams can autonomously build and deploy a wide array of data-based apps to support everything from inventory and asset management to hiring streams and business process workflows — without relying on IT to get the job done. With the right no-code platform, apps can be built in as little as a day (vs. the months-long process typical in cross-functional app development efforts).  Off-the-shelf is often off-the-mark IT teams often rely on off-the-shelf software or pre-written codebases to build apps that serve the widest possible audience. But those apps often don’t support the specific needs of the teams that license them.  With no-code development, people in any area of the company — from HR and finance to marketing and sales — can easily build apps that are customized for their team, processes, data, and goals. Instead of purchasing a one-size-fits-all solution that doesn’t quite solve downstream needs, teams can now build, launch, and update their apps as needs evolve. Doing more with less (IT support) Often, apps are costly to build due to the sheer amount of IT development time involved. And in a landscape where demand for skilled developers outstrips the available supply of talent, IT teams are often understaffed and paying a premium for their hires. Likewise, the expense of per-user seat licenses for third-party software can be prohibitive (especially if most of the users are only using a fraction of the available features and functionality). No-code development allows companies to build the specific apps they need without absorbing costly developer hours or investing in large-scale SaaS tools. For instance, companies with a vast array of equipment and other hard assets may spend upwards of $11,000 per user for broad-spectrum, off-the-shelf enterprise asset management (EAM) software. Yet, with no-code, those same activities can be supported at very low cost by building apps for user-, location-, asset-, and function-specific needs. And then these apps can be integrated with a centralized reporting app. Stakeholders and users get exactly the functionality they need, while saving not only money but also valuable IT resources that might normally have gone into rolling out a large-scale solution. An added bonus: Instead of the months often needed to train an entire company (including new hires) on a one-size-fits-all solution, you can now quickly train individual teams to work in just the apps they need for their respective jobs. As digital transformation takes hold around the world, no-code platforms are empowering business teams to independently build the apps they need most, while freeing up limited IT resources for more strategic initiatives. No-code is helping companies save significant time and money, while also allowing teams to create the data-based apps they need to support their users more effectively and efficiently. The time is ripe for no-code to shift the way everyone works, from IT to business. Ready to learn more? We are here to help you get started with no-code development!

How to Foster a Citizen Developer Culture at Your Organization

Previously, workplace software and applications were exclusively built by expert coders on tools that took years to master. No-code development challenges this paradigm by lowering the barriers of entry to application development and laying the groundwork for the inevitable surge in citizen development. What is citizen development? Gartner defines citizen developers as employees who create “new business applications for consumption by others using development and runtime environments sanctioned by corporate IT.” Look closely at the tail end of this definition. Citizen developers are not renegade rule breakers. In ideal scenarios, their work is controlled through official channels, namely information technology departments. IT holds the keys to standardize their organization’s no-code development practices. In turn, implementing uniform no-code development practices within a workplace fosters a culture of innovation, human-centered design, and productivity. AppSheet helps IT departments achieve these complementary ends of order and flexibility. By enabling everyone to develop their own digital solutions, AppSheet allows processes to be digitized rapidly at an organization-wide level, and customized to the needs of end users. Meanwhile, the platform gives IT the ability to quickly deliver high-quality solutions, gain increased insights into the processes used throughout the organization, and implement the governance policies that ensure compliance. More specifically, our platform empowers IT departments through these three standardization pillars: Organization-wide visibility AppSheet turns the concept of shadow IT on its head. Instead of having unregulated and unmonitored novice technologists running amuck, the implementation of an official, organization-wide no-code platform provides IT clear visibility into their organizations’ challenges and solutions. Control Simply put, IT should control an organization’s technology. This no-brainer principle stays solid even after granting app making capabilities to end users. AppSheet’s no-code platform places security, privacy, and governance capabilities squarely in the hands of the information technology department.  IT sets the policies and guardrails for app creators and users. Here are a few examples of restrictions IT departments set for AppSheet app creators: Ensure that every app enforces access control with domain groups Require offline mode or any functionality across all apps Restrict who can deploy applications Require app documentation Reliability and speed AppSheet eliminates the risk of rogue code which can create huge technical debt in organizations. Similarly, our platform eliminates the slog of traditional application development cycle. Instead of wasting technical time and talent on building workplace apps from scratch, no-code speeds up the process by ten times. Additionally, you can expect a flywheel effect in productivity once your workforce gains confidence as citizen developers.

The Modern Approach to EAM

Utilities, gas, construction, and manufacturing providers are increasingly using custom apps to streamline enterprise asset management (EAM). This makes digital EAM a top technology to watch in 2020 and beyond. Enterprise asset management challenges any large industrial provider. The average company can have hundreds of thousands of assets scattered across multiple locations. These assets include human resources, machines, vehicles, wide area networking components, servers, and more. And each system plays a vital role in the ongoing stability and profitability of the organization. Using software to manage EAM Traditionally, most of these systems and machines operated independently, making it difficult to achieve effective enterprise asset management (EAM) goals. Today, though, more and more industrial providers are moving digital transformation initiatives forward, implementing cutting-edge solutions to oversee the sum of their assets. There are hurdles to the digitization of EAM, however. Off-the-shelf EAM software is very expensive with costs often exceeding $11,000 per user. EAM can be a costly investment for the budget-conscious organization, especially when considering all of the additional technological expenses facing companies today (e.g., data management, the cloud, computers, communications, insurance, and more). It’s possible, however, to build your own EAM apps using a no-code app platform — saving your company thousands of dollars while building a solution that matches your precise needs. The no-code approach to EAM Using a no-code app platform like AppSheet, it’s possible to build individual apps for specific EAM processes. For example, you could build apps to track HR processes, workflows, data management, inventory, and more by merging these functions into a centralized reporting app. Here are some of the benefits that come with using no-code EAM apps. Agile asset tracking One of the problems with out-of-the-box EAM platforms is that they lack the ability to enable you to easily create and track new and custom assets.  By using a no-code EAM platform, however, a company can create specific apps on an as-needed basis. For example, a manufacturing company may decide to start tracking IoT solutions. This could be easily accomplished by taking data from Sheets or Excel and building an app to provide ongoing expense reports.  Fewer errors  Human error remains a major challenge with EAM solutions, which still require physical data entry. It’s very common for data to be entered incorrectly, resulting in inaccurate reporting and untrustworthy results.  No-code EAM eliminates manual data entry by creating a system where information can be entered via digital fields and intuitive drop-down menus. This removes the need to manually transcribe data — increasing data integrity and helping your business make smarter decisions.  If a data value is entered incorrectly on a no-code platform, it’s far easier to detect and correct the mistake. No-code apps offer greater data transparency than traditional paper-based data entry systems. Authorized users can access, review, and update data from any device. Cloud-based management  A study by Software Advice found that 86 percent of EAM buyers prefer a cloud-based EAM solution. This statistic highlights the need for streamlined back-end management and affordable storage. No-code app platforms like AppSheet leverage the cloud to deliver powerful, SaaS-based building functionality. It’s a far more cost-effective approach to running an on-premise EAM solution or hiring developers to build one from scratch for you.  Learn more about AppSheet’s no-code platform.

What is Industry 4.0?

The Industrial Revolution conjures images of smoggy London skies and Dickensian toil. A lot has changed since the 18th century and the initial transition of manufacturing from hand methods to mass production. In fact, there have been two additional industrial revolutions in the meantime. The Second Industrial Revolution occurred around the turn of the 20th century thanks to technological advancements such as the railroad, electrical power, and the widespread use of machinery. Then came the Third Industrial Revolution, or the Digital Revolution, which kicked off in the middle of the 20th century. This stage marked a shift from production via analogue machines to a digital infrastructure including computers, microprocessors, and the Internet. Now that our history lesson’s out of the way, let’s talk about today. We stand at the very beginning of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in which new technologies promise to bridge the physical and the digital. The world is in for rapid, disruptive change thanks to artificial intelligence, the democratization of mobile technology, quantum computing, the Internet of Things, and myriad other advances. These fast-paced changes inspire equal parts excitement and fear. On one hand, new efficiencies in supply chain, transportation, and communications promise to improve the quality of life around the globe. Meanwhile, many people fear that their livelihoods will be replaced by automation. This leads us to the concept of Manufacturing 4.0, a movement which zeros in on how these technologies impact the manufacturing industry.  The principles behind Manufacturing 4.0 We’re optimistic for an increase in safe and rewarding jobs spurred by concrete technological improvements in manufacturing. Done right, Manufacturing 4.0 will be realized through four central methods: Interconnection. People will be able to communicate with machinery and tools via the Internet of Things. Importantly, machines and devices are also able to share data with one another. Information transparency. Expect a huge influx of data enabled by these interconnected technologies and people. Improved information has the potential to touch every point in the manufacturing processes. Operators, managers, and workers will be able to make data-driven decisions when it comes to improving processes, training, factory layouts, and more. Technical assistance. Humans will not have to parse through this information alone. New systems will aid leaders and teams to make informed decisions based on the quick and systematic aggregation of the data collected with the help of information transparency. Computers can detect trends and produce visualizations so that managers and workers can make data-driven choices and plan ahead. Aside from helping people think and reason better, cyber physical systems aka smart machines, will also be there to perform or support physical tasks that are too difficult or unsafe for humans. Decentralized decisions. In some cases, systems will make decisions on their own. This is automation. The promise of automation relies on the imagination of people performing manufacturing processes today. These folks know their work best and can provide the best insights into how technology can amplify and standardize their hard work. People-powered innovation While the principles behind Manufacturing 4.0 are promising, you might be apprehensive about how you can implement these lofty ideas in your industry. After all, manufacturing touches a wide variety of industries from automobiles to clothing, specialty chemicals to aerospace equipment, and everything else produced on planet Earth. How can you make business decisions about technology that will produce specific, yet ongoing, impact? Start small. Ask around. The people who work in your manufacturing plants and facilities are the experts at the work they do every day. Seek the input of manufacturing workers and managers on how their jobs could be made easier. Does paperwork keep foremen working late into the night? Think about ways that smart technology could streamline this work, such as replacing pen and paper with tablets that store data in a centralized, cloud database. Explore optical character recognition (OCR) solutions that detect handwriting to convert scattered, paper-based information into digital files. Voila! The beginnings of interconnection and information transparency at your organization. There are countless examples of how manufacturing processes can be improved today. And given the volume and complexity of work done on any manufacturing site, it’s inevitable that one small improvement will cascade into others until eventually, your organization will become a lean, mean Manufacturing 4.0 machine.  Check out our recent post on inventory control for manufacturing to gain more insight into current applications of industry 4.0 in the industry.

How American Roofing & Metal used SmartSheet data and the AppSheet platform to transform their business

Background There comes a point in any growing company’s life when you look around and realize that your underlying systems and processes are outdated and need a refresh. For American Roofing & Metal, a full-service roofing contractor and metal fabricator launched in 1904, this moment of realization came after a period of rapid growth.   The scope of the company’s operation was increasing by the day and its underlying management strategy—which relied heavily on paper-based tools at the time—was struggling to keep pace. The company needed to change the way it communicated, and quickly.   An American Roofing & Metal project: The Henry B Gonzales Convention Center in San Antonio Maximizing SmartSheet with AppSheet To achieve this goal, the American Roofing & Metal team set out to find a no-code platform that could interface with its Smartsheet data. Waite and his team assessed the market. AppSheet met all of the criteria and, very importantly, also offered a seamless integration with Smartsheet, a software solution for collaboration and management. “Smartsheet allowed us to custom develop processes and automate repetitive tasks. Still, we needed a better and simpler way to interface with our field personnel, project managers, production departments, and salespeople who are out on job sites and on the road.” Over time, American Metal & Roofing leveraged Smartsheet and AppSheet to built and deploy a Job Site Info App, Pick Ticket App, Project Manager Job Site Inspection App, Manager Access Only App, Emergency Contact App, and Human Resources App. Collectively, these apps empower the business's day to day operations and have resulted in reduced paperwork, stress, and greater team collaboration and efficiency.

Solvay and AppSheet: The No-Code Approach to Digital Transformation

Last week AppSheet was at the Forrester Digital Transformation and Innovation Forum in Chicago. It was a great event and all the sessions featured some aspect of digital transformation with guidance on how companies should look at managing the technology side of the transformation equation. It’s a big topic and most companies I spoke with are currently in the trenches, making process and technology decisions to drive their digital transformation initiatives forward. Undertaking these kinds of projects takes grit, ingenuity, and a willingness to embrace the unknown. Certainly, that’s how Solvay approached their digital transformation journey. For those of you unfamiliar with the company, Solvay is an advanced materials and specialty chemicals company. Headquartered in Brussels, with more than 26,000 employees located in 61 countries, it made the ambitious decision to introduce mobility into its shop floors. Why the focus on shop floors? Well, Solvay’s plant-specific processes were paper-driven and the company wanted to replace those paper-based processes with app-driven automation. So, Francis Boulu, Industrial Data Analyst, in collaboration with Solvay’s digital office, selected AppSheet’s no-code platform to build the first set of apps. Of course, this was not Solvay’s first digital transformation project as many teams and industrial plants had been working on digital solutions designed to automate processes. But this transformation project was a bit different as one use case led to another, resulting in AppSheet becoming the no-code platform for more than 400 citizen developers. Today, there are approximately 1,000 deployed apps (and counting) and AppSheet is an integral part of Solvay’s software suite. The digital mobility team continues to find new use cases for apps built on AppSheet’s platform. All in all, Solvay is now more operationally efficient after working with AppSheet. The workforce is better supported with a no-code platform that allows them to build and support their own applications. You might even say that Solvay and AppSheet are the perfect combination for digital transformation initiatives. For the full story, download the Solvay case study.

The Ultimate Enterprise Mobile App Checklist for CIOs [2019]

Are you planning your 2019 enterprise mobile application strategy? No-code platforms like AppSheet and Zudy and low-code platforms like PowerApps, OutSystems, and Mendix provide users with greater capacity to build, iterate, and deploy mobile applications at scale. Yet amidst the positive potential of digital transformation, IT leaders tasked with overseeing security and governance need to remain thoughtful throughout the planning, deployment, and management process as ill-conceived uses of any tool, no matter how powerful, can result in data breaches and organizational dysfunction. Rather than trying to control the entire purview of an organization's IT activities, forward-thinking IT leaders of today need to embrace the opportunity to leverage citizen developer tools while instituting practical policies and guardrails. The end result is an agile organization capable of responding to line-of-business' changing needs with both decentralized IT operations and appropriate degrees of centralized IT oversight. In this checklist, we'll cover six key phases of the IT-aligned mobile application creation process with a few sample questions in each section. Or, you can jump ahead to secure the entire 70+ question checklist in printable PDF form.  Understanding Constraints Identifying Feature Needs Defining IT Governance Needs Selecting Your Platform Building and Testing Your App(s) Deploying Your App(s)   Understand Constraints In the world of enterprise mobile application needs, no two problems are alike, and no two solutions are alike. Having a clear understanding of your specific objectives and constraints is foundational for any successful mobile app deployment project.  What are your primary business goals relevant to this project? What is the status quo system that you are seeking to replace or augment through a mobile app? Will this app be utilized internally, externally, or both? What is your IT budget, digital transformation budget, and/or mobile app strategy budget? What’s your expected development time frame? Identifying Feature Needs A strong understanding of business objectives and practical constraints will lend itself to a proposed feature list. IT leaders can limit dangerous feature creep by stackranking feature needs to determine the essentials and the bonuses.  Have you spoken with all stakeholders to get their input? What kind of data capture needs do you have (e.g. text, image, signatures, etc.)? What kinds of devices and screen resolutions do you need to support? What features are mission-critical? What features are nice-to-have features? Defining IT Governance Needs Security and governance are important considerations that should be addressed up-front rather than after-the-fact. Taking time to lay out your needs and define policy and procedure up front can help ensure organizational alignment throughout the forthcoming process of operational change. What kinds of authorization tools are needed? Does your app need to comply with existing industry security standards? What kinds of governance tools do you need (analytics, policy compliance, central licensing, etc.)? Selecting Your Platform(s) Most leading platforms contain a wide breadth of features and enterprise solutions. Finding a platform that aligns with your goals can save time and money while creating pathways for future success. Are you making the app in-house or seeking a partner to build it? Are the vendors you’re considering reputable and likely to be in business 5 years from now? What kind of support do the app platforms offer? Building and Testing Your App(s) If you've followed through on carefully defining your goals, constraints, features, IT governance needs, and selected an appropriate platform, then building and testing your apps should be a relatively straightforward process.  Have you tested your app with non-technical users? Does the app still function in unique situations such as low battery, less network coverage, airplane mode, or less storage? What other edge cases might stretch the limits of your app? Deploying Your App(s) Deploying your app is no longer a one-off process but rather an iterative process that will likely contain cycles of feedback and revision from end users. Expect to handle change requests and bug fixes in the first few weeks of operations. What kind of training, if any, will you provide to end-users? Who will be managing your app going forward? Do you have a way to collect feedback from end-users and iterate quickly? Interested in downloading the entire checklist?
