The information lag
A huge pet peeve for Mark Hickey, the Environmental Health and Safety Engineer for Schneider Electric in Costa Mesa, California, was taking paper checklists back to the office to compile a report. His team used to perform an audit, take photos on their phones, get the paper form back to the office, enter the data manually into an Excel spreadsheet, and then send it off to the involved parties.
“It took 15-30 minutes for the audit itself, then we had the lag in reporting getting information back to the office,” he remembers. Once the team implemented iAuditor, their auditing time reduced to just 3-4 minutes and reports are ready instantly.
