Industrial and manufacturing companies rely on high-quality inspections to ensure their tools and equipment meet industry standards. These inspections help ensure quality, minimize risk, and guarantee safety.
However, as important as quality inspections are, they are often very inefficient. Remote video inspections solve this issue by providing a streamlined inspection process for industrial and manufacturing companies.
The Drawbacks of In-Person Inspections
Traditional in-person inspections are notoriously inefficient — mostly due to excessive travel times. On particularly bad days, inspectors may spend just as much time on the road as they do performing actual inspections.
For inspectors and inspections companies, these long travel times make it difficult to perform as many inspections as they would like. Moreover, the environmental impact of this frequent travel can be quite significant.
Not only does this inefficiency impact inspectors, but it also hurts the industrial and manufacturing companies that rely on timely inspections to ensure their equipment, tools, and procedures meet industry standards.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, in-person inspections present safety risks for inspectors and clients in light of the current worldwide pandemic.
During these unprecedented times, it’s important to find ways to complete inspections without risking the health and wellbeing of anyone involved.
For this reason, many inspection companies are adopting remote alternatives that allow inspectors to safely carry out their duties without sacrificing the quality of their work.
How Remote Video Inspections Work
Remote video inspections offer an effective, full-featured solution for inspection companies searching for a safe and more efficient alternative to in-person inspections.
There are several different types of inspections that manufacturing and industrial companies rely on, including:
- Source Inspections
- Final Inspections
- First Article Inspection
- Stocked Re-Inspections
- Receiving Inspections
- Shop Floor Inspections
- Returned Material Inspections
- Field Inspections
Blitzz remote video inspections provide inspectors with all of the tools they need to complete these inspections successfully so that companies can feel confident that their facilities and equipment are up to their standards.
To start, inspectors simply send clients an SMS message containing a link to initiate a video call. Clients don’t need to download any apps or software to participate — all they need is access to an internet browser.
Once the call is started, the inspector can walk the client through the inspection process. Inspectors can utilize a variety of tools and features to help complete the inspection, including:
- Markup Tools
- HD Image & Video Capture
- Mobile & Web Screen Sharing
- HD Video Call
- Reporting and Analytics Tools
- And More
With these tools, inspectors can successfully perform their job duties without sacrificing the integrity of the inspection process, the health and safety of all parties involved, and can avoid excessively long travel times.
