It may seem like automated inspections are an unnecessary feature due to the simplistic nature of an inspection. For some companies, it is easy to track and perform inspections completely manually with no issues. Unfortunately, that is not the case for most midsize and large companies.
With so many assets to track (on top of manager’s other responsibilities), it’s difficult to perform effective inspections. That’s why InspectNTrack automates the inspection process. We want our automated reminders and inspection reports to make the process easier for managers everywhere.
There is a difference between automated inspection software and just inspection software. While an inspection software can still track and inspect assets, it does not provide some of the beneficial features that an automated inspection software does.
For example, automated inspection software can remind technicians when it comes time to perform an inspection, and then it navigates the technician where to go to reach the asset that needs inspection. An inspector software that is not automated simply provides a place to collect inspection information. Without reminders, it is easy to forget when specific inspections are due, rendering the inspection software useless.
In addition to inspection reminders, those with just an inspection software may be stuck copying their inspection results to a database where it can be stored, which takes time and resources. Without automated inspection software that stores and sorts reports, users are stuck doing this process themselves. If report storage is not done properly and the NFPA asks for past inspection reports, companies can be left with fines despite completing the inspections.
