Inspections can be done for several reasons; quality control, compliance, safety, OSHA or other reasons, but for whatever the reason, technology can improve your performance. In web-based technology an inspection can be taken faster, inefficiencies can be eliminated and you can better manage issues.
Electronic inspections are done by using IPAD’s, IPhones, Androids Smart phones, Android Pad’s, Window Laptops, Windows Tablets or Windows Pocket PC’s and speed up the process. When a failing item doesn’t pass in your stores, an automatic e-mail notification (Action Item or Work Order) can be sent to the responsible party, immediately. Analytic reports can run immediately, because the data is already in the tables, to measure how wide spread the store issue is. Now if you are manually doing inspections or using slow data input systems, compare how long it takes you to get results to how quickly an electronic process takes to generate results. The electronic process is considerably faster.
Efficiencies are created electronically by sending information directly to tables where it needs to go, then producing an analytical report in an instant. If you are manually taking inspections, manually collecting the data, putting information manually in the computer, making calls and gather the data to produce a report, how much time are you wasting?
Organization is another advantage of electronic systems. When an inspection is taken electronically and stored in proper files, when an action item is automatically stored where it is needs to be, then accessing needed information, is quick and easy. Sending this information to who it needs to go, when it needs to go and how it needs to go, can be done in minutes. Your service towards your customers becomes efficient and you can better manage small and large customer issues.
By using electronic systems for taking inspections, you service your customer faster and better, you save cost of inefficiencies, you can better manage issues that arise and you serve your customers better.
