As a modern software as a service (SaaS) company, we are always improving. Recent evidence of that is the release of Version 2.0 of its Inspections Manager! This is the second major enhancement to our Inspection tool that provides the most feature-rich mobile inspections solution on the market. – This update helps turns inspections data into actionable intelligence by empowering facility teams to take immediate action through results-driven escalations as well as fully connecting Inspections to our Work Order and Preventive Maintenance Manager modules Building Engines users could already leverage powerful mobile technology to complete inspections from any mobile device- even in basements and other areas of low/no connectivity. The new functionality is designed to make inspections data actionable in-the-moment, when it matters most, and improve the insight and efficiency of management personnel.
Maintenance teams now have the ability to complete inspections from any mobile device, to schedule or create ad-hoc inspections in-the-field, as well as initiate work orders immediately upon failed inspection points. Management personnel are delivered inspections data that helps them to ensure that follow-up work is completed, or informs of missed performance targets. This data is delivered through automated escalations and notifications and rich visual summary reporting in the Inspections Analytics Dashboard.
Other unique-to-market inspections features include the ability to capture photos from a mobile device to augment documentation or historical reference, export branded inspection reports, and score inspections to evaluate performance against benchmarks. The flexible Inspections Editor uses a familiar drag-and-drop tool to build inspections and is the first of its kind to directly integrate with work order, equipment and preventive maintenance management.
“Mobile Inspections are a critical part of due diligence in modern property management, yet have been historically under-supported by available technology solutions,” said Jim Gray, VP of Product at Building Engines. “Teams have been forced to rely on manual methods, or build work-around options in PM systems, resulting in scattered processes, incomplete audits, lost data, and lingering service issues. Building Engines Mobile Inspections V 2.0 changes all of that with a mature and complete mobile solution.”
