The mobile app can be used to capture this data while in the field while the web component allows a user to then manage, report on and view inspection results when back at the desk.

The app allows users to capture and attach photos to help illustrate the issues found during inspection. Photo markup further allows the contractor to describe the inspection issue and make it clear what needs to be fixed.

App features:

  • Assign issues to specific organizations or subcontractors
  • Set due dates for when issues need to be fixed
  • Accept or reject issues that are ready to inspect
  • Integrates with Aconex project collaboration platform
  • Work offline; issues automatically synced when a connection is found
