ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BuildingReports, an inspection reporting technology company, announced that it now equips building inspectors nationwide with the Apple® iPhone® or iPod touch® and the Linea Pro from leading enterprise mobility device provider Infinite Peripherals, Inc. (IPC). To date, the solution has been deployed to 169 fire and life safety services companies that use BuildingReports compliance reporting solutions, thereby helping the channel improve efficiency, decrease downtime and enhance customer satisfaction.
The Apple handheld units can be used in conjunction with the Linea Pro barcode scanners and BuildingReports’ Scan Series® applications so that inspectors can quickly scan bar-coded fire and life safety devices while in the field. The data can be combined with information from an online database of safety equipment and national and local safety regulations to ensure the devices are in working order and meet code requirements. This innovative mobile system allows inspectors to complete a building system inspection more efficiently and accurately than a paper-based process, and in real-time deliver an online, comprehensive inspection report to building owners and safety officials that can be securely accessed online 24/7.
“Infinite Peripherals is a great partner; its solutions have proven cost-effective and reliable for our service member network, and they allow inspectors to migrate from many of the legacy mobile devices to the newer, more popular iOS versions,” said David Spence, marketing manager at BuildingReports. “Infinite Peripherals sleds not only enable our barcode scanning technology to work on the iPhone and iPod touch devices, but they also ruggedize this expensive equipment for workers constantly climbing up and down ladders and crawling through difficult environments to inspect devices.”
Enterprise mobility devices optimize productivity
The line of Linea Pro enterprise mobility devices adds a 1D or 2D barcode scanner and magnetic stripe reader to the iPhone and iPod touch to facilitate tasks including inspection/work flow, inventory management, asset tracking, ID verification, lead tracking, mobile point-of-sale, dispatch, time/labor and lab and healthcare. Software development resources and tools from IPC allow customers to easily program scanner and reader functions into their own application.
IPC was the first company to mobilize iOS for the enterprise and currently has more than 400,000 iOS mobile devices deployed worldwide.
“BuildingReports consistently reports improved customer satisfaction with the Linea Pro, which is a critical component in streamlining operations and maximizing productivity as we mobilize the enterprise,” said Victor Bobadilla, channel development manager at IPC.
Building safety compliance is critical to service companies, building owners and fire and safety officials who are charged with safeguarding occupants. BuildingReports’ mobile and online inspection reporting tools enable inspectors to quickly gather data on fire and life safety devices to ensure they are working properly and meet code requirements, or identify actions needed to meet compliance through easily verifiable inspection reports. With more than 120 million inspected devices to date, 400,000 buildings represented and over 600 inspection companies in its network, BuildingReports has earned its reputation as the trusted name in compliance reporting.
