Inspection App Update (V9.0)
An update to our Inspection App (Version 9.0) was released on Friday, July 5th. If you haven't downloaded the latest version to your mobile device yet, please do.
Version 9.0 includes mostly performance upgrades and improved graphics. But, we also added some new features, such as the option to select "high urgency" when submitting reports.
Our Toolbox Talk App will soon include an option to add test questions to your safety talks.
When this feature is used, your employees will receive an email with the safety talk attached. They simply read the safety topic and then answer true-false and/or multiple choice questions before submitting the completed training.
Our new Safety Docs App is here! And the good news is it's "FREE" if you're a current subscriber to our Enterprise System.
The Safety Docs app lets you create a repository for your important safety documents on your Admin Account.
And your employees will always have the most current documents easily available to them via our apps! View screen shots
Did you know you can now create "Groups" of inspectors from your admin account under "User Maintenance"?
This is significant when running analytical reports. Previously, the only option was to run reports by all inspectors or single inspectors.
Contact us if you need assistance adding User Groups to your account.
Using "Job Bank" in your admin account, you now have the option to add multiple emails to a single "Responsible Party".
Contractors in particular will like this feature. For example, when adding a sub-contractor as a "responsible party", you can now add multiple emails (i.e. one for each Superintendent) to a single sub-contractor.
Contact us to learn more about this new feature.
