Two new question types have been added to the goRoam.Inspections module – GPS coordinates and Camera Capture (pictures). We’re pretty excited about this as we see a large need for field based inspections where the GPS coordinates are captured along with a set of pictures.
Examples of customers that need this include utility companies that have to do asset and pole inspections. While a number of cameras support GPS tagging, they don’t support or integrate the field inspections. Inspectors need to barcode scan the asset, confirm a checklist of items, record the GPS lat/long and attach pictures. With utility poles, if there is joint use of the pole, then the inspector needs to document and prove who else is using the pole in order to bill for the use.
The following screenshots give a quick sense of the ease of implementing this.
