Android-based phones and tablets are highly popular in the market with approximately 15 million monthly activations at the start of 2012.
Scaffold safety inspection software is one of the few Android applications that are focused on real requirements. Operating on low priced and easily accessible Google Android devices, the inspection software is being increasingly used by scaffold inspectors to perform scaffold safety inspections using their Android phones without large capital expenses.
The Android-based scaffold safety inspection software allows simple and efficient collection of information in the field.
A key requirement for the scaffold safety inspection app is simplicity of use, given that it’s used in the field. Safety inspectors must be able to quickly master the app and learn to navigate to their desired screen/function easily and quickly.
The Android app for scaffold safety inspection must also be operable offline so that safety inspectors can continue to function in the field without internet connectivity. The scaffold safety inspection app replaces paper forms with a significantly better tool but without the need for continuous connectivity and increased costs.
While the safety inspector can send and receive all the required info and photos wirelessly anytime, the information collected in the field is recorded directly on the Android device in an offline mode, eliminating the need for constant online connectivity in remote locations as well as reducing telecommunication expenses since data may also be transmitted utilising Wi-Fi.
Safety inspectors must also have the ability to take pictures, ‘doodle’ on the pictures as required, and integrate the picture to the appropriate item on the inspection information with minimal clicks. Wireless transmission of pictures should be done effectively and safely without subjecting the server to security breaches.
The scaffold safety inspection software app must allow simplified information collection through standardised features and drop-down lists to minimise information entry in the field.
