What is an embedded Mobile SDK?

The GoCanvas embedded mobile SDK allows you to quickly and easily integrate custom forms into your existing mobile applications. With a few lines of code, you can embed the full user experience of the GoCanvas mobile application within your app and have control of the user experience.

What features are available in the embedded solution? 

All functionality of GoCanvas is available to you when you are embedding. You have full control over how much functionality you expose to your customers:

  • White label web: A fully white-labeled solution can be deployed to allow users access to all GoCanvas functionality on the web through your own URL and brand logo.
  • White label mobile: When you deploy a white label mobile app, you get your own iOS/Android app to deploy in your app store. Deep linking allows you to interact with the app from your existing mobile app as desired.
  • API: You can use the API to build out integrations that send data to users or act on the receipt of data from your users.
  • Embedded mobile SDK: This SDK is coming soon and will allow you to embed only specific forms to your customers from within your existing mobile app.

How is the embedded experience different? 

When you deploy GoCanvas embedded, you control your brand, URL, app store presence, and forms you provide. This becomes an extension of your solution, but all of the great capabilities of GoCanvas are available to you.

What types of forms can I provide my customers?

GoCanvas forms can be customized to fit your needs. To help you get started quickly, we offer a robust library of prebuilt, industry-standard digital forms that can be used as-is or as a base for additional customizations.

Do you offer a service to create forms? 

Yes, absolutely! We have a professional services team that can help you build out the forms, build out your reports, set up integrations, and help you with using our SDK or accessing our API.

How hard is this to set up and deploy?

We offer varying levels of customization depending on the complexity you need to support. As a guideline, getting white label web set up can typically be done in a few days and only requires some coordination from your team on the URL subdomain, certificates, and email DKIM configuration. We can typically get you the packages for white label on mobile within a few weeks, and then getting it deployed in your app store will be similar to your other apps. If you do not have an app currently deployed, it may take a few more weeks to get set up with Apple/Google. API integrations depend on what you want to implement and whether you have us do the work for you or if you do it yourself. We are happy to discuss all options with you.

Should I build vs. buy an embedded form solution?

Opting to purchase a ready-made solution provides clear benefits over the common challenges of in-house solution development:

  • Unexpected complexity: Building your own solution is typically more complicated than initially planned.
  • Complete functionality: In-house development means you are responsible for every aspect of functionality.
  • Scalability challenges: Managing scalability is entirely on your shoulders when you build it.

However, when you select to buy:

  • Simplified process: Buying is straightforward, and we ensure deployment is a breeze.
  • Tailored integration: Whether through SDK, resell, or white-label options, our solution fits neatly into your business strategy.
  • Cost-effective: Avoid the steep internal costs of engineering while gaining high ROI.
  • Higher ROI:
    • Scaled pricing: Introduce higher-value features to support price increases for your entire customer base.
    • Upsell advantage: Enhance revenues by offering premium features or moving customers to higher service tiers.
  • Flexible and economic: Adapt to new features or scale with ease without overextending your budget. You invest more only when you choose to enhance or upgrade your service tiers.
  • Partnership for success: We are committed to your success; we only succeed when you do.
