Time is money, so the more you save, the more you make. The two best ways of saving time for a business are:
- Automating as many tasks as possible so man hours can be used more profitably
- Ruthless organisation in record-keeping and workflow that eliminates wasted time
Fortunately, the technology exists to make both these methods fairly easy to implement. You simply need the proper software — specifically, a powerful manufacturing inspection app.
One of the biggest advantages of implementing a digital process is that it ensures no critical information falls through the cracks. When you can just glance at a dashboard to get real-time information about what is going on in production and get immediate alerts when any anomalies or safety hazards occur, the result is significantly less downtime.
Best of all, when you get a standalone out-of-the-box app, you don’t need to be a tech expert to install or use it — there is no coding involved or any need to integrate it with third-party products. Scheduling tasks is a simple matter of drag and drop. It’s so much easier to keep your teams on track and maintain peak efficiency when your workflow processes are automated.
There is no denying that paperwork is a major pain. Unfortunately, a lot of time gets wasted when workers can’t find the information they need when they need it. And the problem is compounded when you are dealing with mobile teams and multiple locations. A digital process is much less painful and more efficient. Plus, it can represent significant cost savings.
Good inspection software should be easy to customise, integrate and deploy. It allows you to accomplish a lot more with fewer errors. Data collection is a breeze and reports can be generated within seconds. A mobile app that can be used by all teams on any device is invaluable when trying to streamline operations to create an efficient work order process. The core foundation of any effective work process app is its inspection form designer, because forms need to be specific to the businesses using them. They need to be customisable, but starting from scratch would be a daunting task for any company. That’s why there should be a massive library of templates to cover everything from quality assurance to facility checklists and everything in between for a variety of industries.
