When it comes to specific tasks construction businesses are using mobile apps not only for general construction, but also for heavy & civil engineering, bridge and road construction, specialty trades, residential and commercial construction, equipment inspection and more.
For the managers of site-inspections, paper forms introduce several vulnerabilities and inefficiencies. For example, workers can report the inspection of a site they never visited or repeat the filled information from time to time. Moreover, paper forms can be damaged or lost or even fired. With paper, it can be hard to verify that a safety inspection occurred at the appropriate time and place. And if there is a safety issue, it could take hours or days to get the information to the right person.
Date and time stamps are also taking place in construction mobile forms. You can simply capture GPS locations, photos and images, digital signatures, bar and qr codes scanners with the help of one button click.
