Can quality inspection software improve my business?
That’s a question we get a lot here at Form.com, and one that we enjoy answering because the answer is always a resounding, “Yes!”.
In the world of quality inspections, business improvement is realized when decision-makers get their hands on better, more useful data about how their organization and its products are doing from basic level. And while this information is incredibly valuable, what about the employees who work with those products every day? Can quality inspections monitor track and monitor their actions? What if they aren’t getting better, or if they aren’t doing their best work every time they’re on the job? In cases like these, the possibility for something to go wrong increases. In fact, when gone unchecked for too long, even the smallest errors can turn into major problems down the line.
Human error doesn’t have to be inevitable, impossible to stop, or something that takes constant scrutiny to prevent. In fact, you can dramatically decrease your number of human-driven problems when you make it easier for employees to learn and improve on the job.

Now more than ever, companies are enabling their employees to improve on the job by switching to mobile quality inspection software and apps. In addition to managing inspection data and reports, quality inspection software can also contain educational information about products and procedures. So if someone has a question, or isn’t sure about something, they’ll be instantly provided with the information and answers they need to learn every time they’re on the job.
Unlike old fashioned data collection methods (like spreadsheets and paper forms), mobile quality inspection software is easy to use, and can manage an abundance of forms on a single device that can go just about anywhere. Also, with mobile forms, feedback happens instantly, so employees no longer have to wait weeks to learn if they passed or failed an inspection. Instead, the mobile app can provide results and solutions to problems in real-time. This enables inspectors to correct behaviors right away so employees won’t keep making the same mistakes.
Mobile software can give you the constant teaching and development your organization needs to see true success. Not only will your employees get better at performing quality control inspections, but the inspections themselves will trend more positively as employees gain a deep understanding of proper procedures. When your whole team is constantly improving, you can be sure your products will do the same.
