During audits, it needs to be easy for the auditor needs to take notes. These notes are essential to drafting reports, aren’t they? Then each auditor has their own preferences, especially in situations where a computer is not available. Some auditors carry a clipboard and take notes on paper. Others prefer a tablet, entering everything they can into a blank document. In both of these cases, the auditor needs to put everything into the computer again. In addition to rework, there is a risk that data will be lost and that it will be hard to find evidence and understand notes.
When you need to perform an audit inside of a factory, or somewhere far away, like a power transmission line or an oil platform, where internet access is spotty or even sometimes non-existent, things become even harder, right?
Well now, with the new version 2.2 of the SoftExpert Suite, what was already good is now better than ever! You can run your audits offline using the new SoftExpert Audit app for cell phones.
Anytime and anywhere!
Expanding the possibilities for performing audits from mobile devices, an exclusive app was developed for the SoftExpert Audit component. The app’s main goal is to allow auditors to register their findings and comments, even when there isn’t an internet connection. The tool lets comments be entered that provide backing on deciding whether or not compliance has been met for a requirement, while also attaching images, videos, or audio as objective audit evidence throughout performance of the audit.
The app then automatically syncs audit information, which will be available online and can be consulted in the traditional way by using the web platform.
That’s right! Complete your entire checklist, as defined beforehand using the web tool, anytime and anywhere.
Download the app from your device’s app store and see how it works in practice.
