Step up your inspection game
written by Daniel Dolhy on September 16, 2015
A very common usage scenario for mobile CRM is mobile field inspections.
No wonder. Most inspectors spent the majority of their time out in the field, doing what they are paid to do: inspect things. So a mobile application is an ideal solution for them—it gets rid of papers once and for all.
Simple scenario: Insurance claim agent
Let’s say you are a car insurance agent–here’s how your typical inspection would go with a mobile CRM application:
|You get a list of inspections for the day assigned via Mobile CRM app – no need to call the office or go there personally to pick up the schedule|
|You take a look at the map that shows you the appointments for the day & plan your day|
|You call up people to schedule times and off you go|
|You come to the first site and start the inspection questionnaire|
|You inspect the vehicle— it appears to have damaged headlights caused by a crash, so you answer ‘yes’ to the question “Is the car damaged?” Immediately after, a new window appears, asking you to snap a picture of the damage|
|You finish the questionnaire and try to send the claim to the back-office for processing, the app reminds you to ask the car owner for a signature that verifies the results of the inspection. Done.|
|The report is saved and automatically stored in CRM – now others can follow up on it, whether it’s your superior who needs to approve it or the finance department that’s going to reimburse the customer.|
Everything is streamlined and easy to follow.
There are almost limitless possibilities of using mobile CRM applications for inspection purposes. One of our customers uses it for building huge cargo ships—the users go in with a tablet and check every nut and bolt on the ship, verifying each checkup with a signature.
