In any public facility there are often inspections that need to monitor the quality or cleanliness.
These public facility inspections are driven on a regular basis to effectively keep track of the wear and use, but also make sure that they are in an appropriate condition for the user. This can mean the cleanliness of a bathroom in a library, the safety of seating areas or the quality of transport systems. All are equally important to the end-user and need some form of inspection. It is equally feasible that inspectors or staff need to perform multiple different inspections, meaning that the needs and requirements for each check varies. This highlights the need for an efficient, diverse and easy-to-use solution that can replace a cumbersome pen and paper process for inspection any public facility.
Today the solution for these needs is the mobile inspection solution, provided through the marriage of a mobile device in smartphone or tablet form with an inspection application. Premium solutions provide features such as photo taking through the devices’ camera and then further annotation using the touchscreen or stylus. This allows for highly detailed information to be captured regarding e.g. cleanliness conditions and what needs managing or whether there is excessive wear on a safety restraint. Public facility inspection can also use GPS timestamps to add further ease to historical tracking of assets or locations, which is done on a cradle-to-grave basis. The offline reporting function, often a mainstay on premium inspection solutions means inspectors can reach every small area or angle necessary.
