iFormBuilder: How mobile is killing the clipboard – with founder Sze Wong

Data collection has never been more in the forefront than now with the incredible adoption of smartphones and other mobile devices. There isn’t a store, kiosk, bank, gym, restaurant or business that doesn’t collect some form of data but we often don’t think twice about how it gets collected, stored and analyzed.

That’s what Sze Wong noticed and figured this market would eventually explode so he created iFormBuilder – a mobile data collection and analysis platform. And explode it did. They are now in over 80 countries.

I knew data collection was important but I didn’t realize the science and effort that needs to go into recreating this industry with a mobile face and this is that story.
