Strider Features

Strider for MapItFast is unlike other electronic based forms software.  Besides containing numerous features to handle even the most complex data collection requirements, Strider includes printable reporting at no additional cost.  Strider’s data collection tools simplify data input and work with lookup tables to automate data filling.   The printable reports link data inputs to PDF documents with logos, maps, photos, signatures and more that may be printed or emailed.

Furthermore, because Strider is included free with MapItFast, you can use the convenience of forms to collect information from your maps for point, line, polygon and geophoto map objects.  Sending the data in is automatic and so are updates to forms and lists.
