Paperless inspection solutions allow inspectors to make use of a mobile device and its features to record data in different ways possible to the inspector using pen and paper. Smartphone or tablet functions such as the camera and touchscreen can be used to record visual information rather than relying on written descriptions. This is particularly useful in winter inspections as recordings can be made against previous inspections in a similar time period (also made possible thanks to integrated GPS timestamps) and hence the wear and tear of assets or machinery can be judged. By taking photos, the use of equipment can be demonstrated more clearly, alongside the obvious benefits of tracking degradation or material faults. This can then be tracked on the life-cycle tracking of assets – something available on many premium paperless inspection solutions today. Life-cycle tracking is available for all reports, maintenance and compliance, from cradle to grave.
