Focusing on their clients’ needs first and foremost

Collateral Status, also known as CSTAT™, has partnered with XForms to provide modern mobile data solutions to its new and future clients.  CSTAT is the maker of the CSTAT Mobile Data Collection system, which focuses on the environmental and real estate markets, providing expertise with data collection systems in due diligence, underground storage tank, property inspections, and Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) areas.  While their existing data collection system works great for their existing clients and certain workflows, future-proofing their system amid a continually-changing and complex technological landscape can be challenging, time-consuming, and costly.

By partnering with XForms, CSTAT can now access an additional platform that can be used to create solutions for its clients that address more complex workflows and use cases that their current system was not designed to manage.  By leveraging the numerous benefits of XForms enterprise software including advanced APIs, editable tables, and the ability to create powerful dashboards with the customizable form building of CSTAT, CSTAT XF is uniquely qualified to create powerful solutions for a company’s mobile data collection requirements.

You never know where a road might lead when you first meet someone

I first met Kurt Winters (pictured above, right, with John Gobins) in the Spring of 2016 at the first ever EnviroTech Summit, where Kurt presented their initial software product, an iPad app primarily focused on Phase I ESAs and due diligence inspections.  At the time, XForms didn’t even exist as a concept.

Over the past 3 years, Kurt and I have stayed in touch, usually comparing notes about our common interests in the environmental industry, and our shared experiences and frustrations addressing problems in that industry using software. Never did I have a hidden agenda, nor expect to partner with Kurt and CSTAT at some point in the future.  But here we are, working together—in the same direction—attempting to utilize technology to improve field data collection efforts.

Funny how the smallest threads lead you to places.  A conference about modern technology in the environmental industry (or the lack thereof) led me to meet Kurt, whose company is now a partner to a business that didn’t even exist at that time.

CSTAT’s main industry focus with XForms will continue to be the ones they know the best:

  • Environmental
  • Due Diligence
  • Real Estate
  • Property Inspections
