Reducing costs, demonstrating compliance or ensuring the integrity of your assets - whatever your business objectives, regular inspection is key to maximising your operational performance. The quality of an inspection in terms of reliability and effectiveness directly translates into potential cost saving and efficiency benefits, and is therefore a crucial factor to consider.
The SMS Inspection Manager is an intuitive, fully digital application system to support inspectors and administrators in completing their inspection tasks – enhancing inspection efficiency, accuracy, traceability, visibility and security versus traditional paper based systems.
Inspector's View Administrator's View
Using a tablet application for inspectors and a desktop application for administrators, Inspection Manager provides near real-time inspection results through a syncing mechanism between the apps. This provides:
The use of tablet devices for inspectors means they can input straight into a live data feed, with multiple tasks being conducted using the same device. This significantly reduces input time, whilst improving inspector mobility and productivity, who no longer have to work through multiple sheets of paper. The formatting of the app also enforces compliance with the user-built check sheet, with all mandatory fields needing to be completed before moving on to the next inspection task.
Inspection Manager also helps to reduce costly administration. Through the mobile app, the data is input and synced straight to the administrator’s desktop application, from where it can be exported into a desired report format without the need to manually re-input into a system.
Whilst connected, inspectors can upload new checks and/or deposit information centrally for storage and analysis, including punch point tags where further action is required. At its optimum, this provides access to real-time inspection information for the administrators, enabling a prompt reaction to any faults, helping to prevent potentially costly downtime and ensuring asset integrity.
As a minimum, the tablet devices can be synced when inspectors working in remote locations return back to a connected site at the end of the day. With daily syncing, Inspection Manager provides progress reports to the administrator so they can monitor the effectiveness of the inspection schedule, and are able to better plan any outstanding work. The latter is especially crucial to minimise disruptions if inspections are conducted in hazardous areas that require temporary system shut-down or enhanced safety supervision.
With regular syncing, there is complete traceability of all inspections conducted, rendering the process fully auditable to prove compliance. And with end-to-end data encryption between the devices whilst syncing, it provides full protection of potentially confidential information.
Inspection Manager retains all the benefits provided by a traditional paper based inspection, and augments them to take your inspection to the next level.
