Today many organisations who are managing their own property checks for commercial reasons or simply for regulatory purposes are using digital inspection applications. Industrial standards such as those published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), can be easily built into checklists so that the audit trail becomes much simpler. In such checklists, there can be specific sub-parts that directly conform the inspection to the standard’s inclusive points. Measurements and information can be recorded in standardised response boxes, via speech-to-text services or image attachments. As paperless applications use mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets, the camera is as simple as the smartphone that employees use at home. Images can likewise be annotated to show certain features like mould growth directions or the wear or damage to a fire escape route.
