Super Sonic Inspections

Presented by: Titan Cloud Software

Organizations are continually working to collect site level data through inspections either required due to regulatory requirements or to help drive specific business processes. Historically the process has been very manual with hard copy forms and a significant gap in analytics visibility. As technology improved organizations shifted to electronic forms and file cabinets, but still lacked visibility to analytics and automated workflows. Today’s technology allows for a fully automated process where information can be shared from the site to the home offices at supersonic speeds. Information from these inspections can be utilized to provide critical analytics that can help lower operating costs and address critical issues at a significantly higher pace than ever before.
