sending digital vehicle inspectionsPaper inspections are problematic. They might have been the right 10 years ago, but in this day and age, paper inspections are costly and inefficient. The main issue with paper inspections is the inconsistency. No two inspections are going to be created equal, even if they are written up by the same technician. Now, imagine if you have multiple technicians and multiple locations…can you feel a headache starting? Don’t worry, those inconsistencies can be a thing of the past—and with customizable digital inspections, you’ll get far more than consistency.
