How to automate your inspection process through Pervidi paperless solution
Does your business use paper checks, forms and audits? You will need to conduct an internal review/audit to see where paper forms are still being used in your business and consider its role within a business. Often sorting and handling paper is the time consuming for business. Introducing electronic forms instead of paper forms might require a change in management for the staff involved. Make sure that during this phase you involve all stakeholders in the organisation (Human Resources, IT, and the employees themselves).
Once unnecessary paper forms have been identified, management must consider whether it can be replaced electronically and measure the cost benefit of introducing paperless application and workflow (total cost of solution Vs. total saving – both tangible and intangible benefits). To conclude whether the paper system is necessary or not management must also consider the effect it has on the business operations and how by improving the paper flow checks will save time and improve the data collection process. This stage may be done by staff making a logical decision and informing stakeholders of it’s existence. This stage is completed by staff referring to similar scenarios in previously collected data and management estimating the cost benefit by switching to paperless systems.
Choosing the mobile device to be used
Consider Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or dedicated devices, what are the device requirements- barcode reader, rugged, intrinsically large screen, operating system (OS- Android or iOS), Mobile device management tools to manage the “fleet” of devices. : Management can then configure Pervidi inspection solution and create the electronic forms, the drop downs and pick list selection, the corrective action reports, and the reporting and notifications for example. The corrective actions can be automatically trigger an action i.e. email the appropriate user with all the information required to rectify or correct the deficiency. Do not forget to run use cases to test the forms and the devices.
To ensure the paper systems has been successfully automated and implemented to an electronic system, management must test the system to ensure not only does the automation work desirably but all parties involved in the action are informed. Staff can create routine checks on all existing automation in place to ensure the triggered procedure is effectively addressing the issue.
