Taking Lifting Equipment Inspection Digital

Many organisations and industries around the world are hence moving their operations to paperless; inspection via a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. Digital solutions can come in many forms such as free apps or tailored business solutions depending on what your needs and requirements are. Whilst free apps are simple to download and try out, they often don’t provide the same versatility for registering different lifting equipment types and regulations against checklists. Aside from the issue of data security, there is also the question whether you want your multi-thousand- or million-dollar equipment or asset arsenal inspected by an AU$0.99 app. The benefits of premium inspection solutions for inspecting lifting equipment are both widespread and easy to realise.

Using this it is possible to take pictures of equipment for the lifting inspection and add them post annotation to the report. The touchscreen gives the possibility to make drawings or highlight certain wear or faults with lifting equipment, whilst GPS timestamps are derived directly from the device itself.

Why Digital Business Isn’t Just a Phase

It has long been said that within business cash is king. In the 21st century, there is a new kid on the block; information. During the early 2000s when the word cloud meant water vapour and smartphones were in their infancy, it would be hard to comprehend the importance of connectivity in today’s world. Today organisations focus on their analytics of Big Data, which has taken an almost fundamental position in business development. Access to such information gives knowledge such as Return on Investment statistics (ROI), consumer insights, market performance, asset performance, organisational historical statistics etc. Today’s business information and analysis ultimately controls the king of the 20th century – cash.

Moving Mining Operations from Paper to Digital

The inability to update quickly the regulatory paperwork and procedures, it can take days, weeks and even months to roll out a fresh set of checklists that are in line with the industries best. Such a waiting time further underlines the almost vital benefit that paperless solutions chiefly bring – speed and customisation. Perhaps the premier difference between paper-based inspection solutions to digital applications is speed. This is not only the speed of completing the actual checklist, nor undertaking the set inspection; speed differences can be visible almost everywhere. From collecting information via pictures instead of notes, scanning barcodes/RFID or standardised response forms, the inspectors job becomes much easier.

Ecogeneration Inspection

Paperless environmental and ecogeneration inspection applications also offer the benefits of being digitally hosted. No more prime real estate being taken up by lockers of dusty inspection history or endless amounts of records no one can organise or find a way to navigate, digital means digital.
