Version 4.0 of the scaffolding apps is a major upgrade – adding enhanced functionality that allows users to record diary notes, photos, audio and video against a scaffold during the weekly inspection or as part of the handover to a client.
The apps also now allow users to download a transcript from the recorded audio or the video.
This enables users to record inspection or handover notes audibly into their smart phone or tablet and these notes will be transcribed into a document.
Notes can then be sent back to the desktop management console by the app and logged against the scaffold being inspected or handed over.
The added functionality to the scaffolding apps allows for more accurate inspections and handovers of scaffolding and access jobs.
The paperless set-up is backed up by cloud-based technology for accurate and auditable storage of reports with no need for rekeying.
The new SMART Inspector and Handover app functionality allows users to:
- Record the progress of the scaffold build or dismantle
- Record any problems, such as lack of access or conflict with other works
- Record any variation requests
- Record to show that the site is clear when you have completed the job
All of this is sent back from the app to the management console, so those in the office can track the progress of the work and be aware of issues.
