Typical field inspection workflow includes visiting a site, collecting data, submitting data to backend core system, and creating inspection reports. Most field inspection jobs are still done using paper forms. However, paper forms have disadvantages as below:

  • Paper forms require buying, printing, storing, distributing costs
  • Paper forms could be lost or damaged
  • Input data could be invalid or ambiguous by human mistakes
  • Input data should be checked and typed into backend core system again
  • Paper forms cannot capture other types of information such as photo, voice, and barcode and needed separate equipment such as camera, recorder, and barcode scanner

Recently, not only to overcome the inefficiencies but also survive in the market, more and more companies are now undertaking mobile inspection with e-forms to achieve higher efficiency, productivity, faster decision making and better customer satisfaction.

Customers can get following benefits from mobile inspection:

  • Provides real-time analysis of mobile work status
