What is the most valuable part of a mobile solution?
A mobile data collection system allows users to interact directly with the data they're collecting in an intuitive, meaningful way. Say you have a technician performing an inspection in the field. They can enter comprehensive and detailed information into their smartphone or tablet device, and even record the environmental conditions on the site. Based on this input, the mobile form will produce a safety evaluation in real time (find out What Makes a Good Safety Inspection Form).
This opens up huge opportunities for your team to become more aware of what can happen if they neglect safety procedures. It also assists them in mitigating the risks they encounter day to day.
The most valuable part of a mobile solution is the insight you can gain from directly interacting with the data. Doing so reinforces safety training and reminds workers exactly what can go wrong with the safety hazards they face on a regular basis. And that's essential to improving your safety outcomes (learn more about Improving Compliance by Incorporating Conditional Logic and Analytics).
