Why did Formstack’s Portals add-on initially pique your interest?
When we have new franchise owners come onboard with us, they have to follow an initial business-opening process. Prior to having access to Formstack's Portals feature, we were using a checklist that was built by hand. Having the Portals add-on creates a seamless process for our new franchise owners to follow.
How has your company put Portals to use?
We have put Portals to use in several different ways. Of course the biggest use of Portals for 360clean is for the new franchise opening process. We also utilize Portals in training videos and tests for our new franchise owners. Portals is also used for various training initiatives within 360clean.
What benefits have you seen since implementing Portals?

Do you have plans for other ways you’d like to use Portals in the future?
Always. We are always looking for new/easier ways to create a more seamless process within our corporate office. I anticipate all our current processes being transferred to the Portals add-on within Formstack.
