One of the most demanding jobs is the job of inspectors. From food safety inspections to construction inspections inspectors are responsible for important tasks like recording regulatory compliance, code violations and creating detailed reports documented by proofs. All with the common goal of ensuring the safety of community. Last but not least inspection management requires traveling to inspection field that is organized often on 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Transforming outdated inspection systems into new ones is the general way to otpimise inspections. But what comes after that? What are the next best ways to support optimisation in inspection management?
The agility of using inspection management software manifests itself not only as a way to remove paper from the work processes, but also as a way to make inspection scheduling more optimal, filling detailed reports faster and covering more inspection sites for less time possible. In other words a 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. Which means that the benefits go beyond the software application and capture other uses as well – such as the use of mobile devices. Inspectors are often on the go and that’s why the use of mobile devices for inspection purposes is important opportunity for them. With tablets they can easily record inspections, take pictures, make notes, etc. while being on the move. This turns the usability of the inspection software into a very important aspect at the stage of testing the solutions of different vendors.
Paperless workflows go hand-to-hand with mobile devices in inspection management
Certain kind of inspections, especially the ones 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 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 electronic environment with pre-defined inspection checklist that is configured specifically for the type 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 reorganizing 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 the allocation of cases is a very important feature for Canalix. Thanks to a sophisticated AI complexity scoring algorithm, Canalix allocates cases automatically to inspectors with relevant skillset and geo location. The allocation becomes visible real-time in 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 overall the inspection planning and makes it easier for inspectors to cover more inspection sites by using less resources and less manual operations.
