One of the most demanding jobs is the job of inspectors. From food safety inspections to construction inspections, inspectors are responsible for essential tasks like recording code violations, improving compliance, and creating detailed reports documented by proofs. All of these with the common goal of ensuring the safety of the community. Last but not least, inspection management requires travelling to an inspection field that is organised often on a tight inspection schedule. So a serious thought is needed when it comes to making the work of inspectors more efficient and, at the same time, less stressful.
Transforming legacy inspection systems into digital efficient system is the modern way to optimise inspections. But what comes after that? What kind of optimisation follows after digital transformation of the inspection management system? Let’s see.
The agility of using inspection management software manifests itself not only as a way to remove the paper from the work processes but also to make inspection scheduling more optimal, filling detailed reports faster and covering more inspection sites for less time possible. In other words, good inspection management software will help inspectors to inspect more and work less.
Inspections with mobile devices
Inspectors who travel to make field inspections find benefit not only in the use of inspection management software per se. They find benefit in the agility of the concept of cloud-based platforms for inspection management. This means that the benefits go beyond the software application and capture other uses, such as mobile devices.
Inspectors are often on the go, so the use of mobile devices for inspection purposes is an important opportunity for them. With tablets, they can easily record inspections, take pictures, make notes, etc., while moving. This turns the usability of the inspection software into an essential aspect when testing the solutions of different vendors.

Paperless workflows go hand-to-hand with mobile devices in inspection management.
Certain kinds of inspections, especially those that ensure safety (food safety inspections, fire safety inspections, road safety inspections, playground safety inspections, etc.), involve a lot of paperwork. The complexity of such inspection processes is being optimized to a great extent thanks to inspection management software solutions like Canalix.
Depending on the type of inspection, inspectors can eliminate the paper filling part by switching to an electronic environment with a pre-defined inspection checklist that is explicitly configured for the kind of inspection that is being made. The collected data can be shared instantly with relevant collaborators. And the best part is that no printing or reorganising of paper documents is needed for that.
Real-time Inspection Scheduling In Inspector’s Pocket
Printing inspection schedules can lead to mistakes. Inspectors should always be well informed about their schedules. That’s why allocating jobs is an essential feature for Canalix. Canalix assigns cases to inspectors with a relevant skill set and geolocation thanks to a sophisticated AI complexity scoring algorithm. The allocation becomes visible in real-time in the inspector’s electronic calendar that can be accessed via tablet or smartphone. This intelligent way for inspection scheduling reduces the risk of making mistakes. Last but not least, it improves inspection planning and makes it easier for inspectors to cover more inspection ground by using fewer resources.
