Mobile Technology's Role in Improving Inspections

How mobile technology improves inspections?

The offer in mobile data collection technologies is increasingly diverse to meet growing demand from the inspection industry. More and more companies specializing in field inspections are migrating to digital technology to increase productivity and reduce costs. Mobile apps can improve inspections in several ways.

  • Mobile apps can improve inspections by eliminating redundant tasks like manually creating reports and databases. Using an app allows you to create digital forms and export the completed form in the most convenient format.
  • Mobile technology allows the inspector to access data from previous inspections directly on their mobile devices. Thus, they can see the evolution of the condition of the inspected equipment.
  • Going digital for your fieldwork and data collection eliminates the re-transcription of data from the paper form into a database and manual management of photos taken with a camera in the field. The mobile app automatically replaces these tedious and time-consuming steps.
  • Finally, there are considerable benefits to using a mobile app here, including automated report creation (preventing further administrative lags). The mobile application also helps prevent errors when handling data. It can instantly create a PDF or Excel report seconds after the end of the operation. In addition, the visual interfaces often help both surveyors and clients to make better decisions more quickly.
