What are GapCross Apps

GapCross apps are procedural productivity tools. GapCross was designed for creating, performing, and reporting the results of assessments, inspections, and audits. Innovative users began creating procedural apps, training apps, test sample collection apps, logic tree apps for troubleshooting, and other types of apps.

Who Creates GapCross Apps

Anyone can use the No-Code Application Builder. Jet Stream Innovations, the creators of GapCross, and our industry partners can transform your assessment and process requirements into efficient apps. Some ready-to-use industry-standard apps can be acquired from the GapCross Marketplace dashboard.

How are GapCross Apps Created

GapCross apps are easily created using the No-Code Application Builder. Apps are basically procedures. The procedure can have one or more sections and each section has actions. The most common actions are questions and instructions. Different question types have different options for response options, action tips, detail references, logic rules, scoring design, and reporting options. During the creation process, apps can be tested and reports reviewed to perfect the procedure being developed.

What are the Benefits of Transforming a Procedure or Assessment Into an App

The obvious benefit is that the procedure is documented and when a team/staff member performs the procedure they will be following a set of standard steps. But it is far more than that. A procedure could be documented as a PDF, but this presents issues.

Paper procedures and assessment checklists can't

  • Link to volumes of reference material
  • Use queries to locate specific steps or assessment questions
  • Automatically calculate scoring
  • Be used by a team across remote locations
  • Reliably track who did what when
  • Automatically skip sections and questions that are not applicable
  • Instantly create reports
  • Manage corrective actions, procedure improvements, and interactive responses

Two Key Benefits of Apps

  1. By maintaining and following apps with details of your business knowledge new employees learn how to correctly perform tasks quickly and the knowledge does not leave when employees do.
  2. When a procedure or assessment is updated and published it is instantly deployed to all of your staff so only the latest version is used. There are no obsolete files or print copies.
