Choose a mobile inspections app that supports offline access

mobile inspections app

What happens when your inspectors in the field lose their Wi-Fi or cellular connection while using a mobile inspections app?

Without Wi-Fi or cell access, inspectors often must switch to paper inspection forms. Information recorded on paper must be entered into the system manually, reducing efficiency and increasing the risk of data entry errors.

Inspectors also can lose important inspection data when they lose Wi-Fi or cell connectivity. The resulting need to reinspect costs time and adds frustration.

Help your inspectors by choosing a mobile inspections app that supports offline access.

Save data on the app when offline

Use a mobile inspections app that allows inspectors to save inspection information to the app when offline. When inspectors using GL Solutions’ software are in the field, they use a mobile device, like a tablet, preloaded with inspection information.  Because the app saves inspection data locally, inspectors aren’t affected by the loss of cell of Wi-Fi connectivity. The app simply syncs with the backend GL Suite application when a connection is re-established.

State agencies use inspections app

GL Solutions clients using mobile inspection functionality include the Alabama Board of Cosmetology and Barbering, Wyoming Board of Cosmetology and North Carolina Board of Barber Examiners.
