Mobile Inspection Software on Handheld PDAs




Mobile inspection software solutions are the topic of the week. Why? Many of MobileDataforce's largest global customers are in the inspection services business. In addition, rarely are inspections done in an office cubicle. They are most often completed somewhere away from the office and often out-of-doors. My engineering team has been developing and enhancing the PointSync Mobility Platform for many years specifically for companies that have a need to use a wide variety of different inspection applications and other mobile applications in the field.



The image in the upper right corner of this blog - is a screen shot of the PointSync Developer. This is the application companies use to develop each customized inspection. Once the mobile application is designed, developed and deployed the work can begin.

Because the inspection services industry covers such a wide variety of inspections, MobileDataforce created a mobile inspection platform to support the requirements for quickly changing them. Here is a list of a few of the common inspection applications:
  • Building Inspections
  • Power Pole Inspections
  • Substation Inspections
  • Stray Voltage Inspections
  • Power Generation Plant Inspections
  • Pipeline Inspections
  • Health & Safety Inspections
  • Scaffold Inspections
  • Mold Inspections
  • Fire Safety Inspections
  • Conditional Assessment Inspections
  • Auto Inspections
  • End of lease vehicle inspections
  • Quality Assurance Inspections
  • etc...

The list is endless. No one would buy a separate mobile application for each of the thousands of different possible inspections. Companies want an mobile inspection platform that can support all of these possible scenarios. That solution is the PointSync Mobility Platform for Inspections.
