SDL Mobile – New Version Coming

We have a new version of SDL Mobile coming out soon, check out some of the new features below. We’re excited to see how they help out inspectors in the field and add to the more then 1000+ inspections per day currently being processed.

Filter and Sort all inspections

View and Filter All Inspections

Sort and Filter all inspections for a module (defaults to the past 7 days). Quickly reassign or reschedule inspections (shown on iOS)

One of the top requests was the ability to view other inspector’s daily stops and then have the ability to reassign them if needed. In the next version, SDL Mobile will download all inspections for the current module (previous 7 days by default) allowing you to sort and filter the list based on inspector, timeframe and subcode (for Construction). By default, you will only see your list of inspections but at any time you can see all others as well (just like in SDL Desktop).

When needed, an inspector can reassign an inspection (or in Public Works, a service request) to others or to themselves with a quick tap of a button. Inspectors must have the SDL Desktop permission to schedule inspections and in the case of Construction, they must also have the permission to edit that subcode (e.g. only Electrical inspectors can edit Electrical inspections etc)

 

Find Best Route, Find Nearest Inspection and Google Maps Navigation Integration

Best Route with traffic and Google Maps Navigation integration (shown on Android)

Google Maps is now at the core of SDL Mobile. We use their native SDKs for map display in iOS and Android, their Directions service for routing and their Distance Matrix service to find the nearest inspection or service request to pick up (based on your location and traffic). We also integrate into the Google Maps consumer app for quick navigation to an inspection.

One common question we hear from our clients, especially where construction projects or code violations are high, is how can we use technology to complete more inspections per day. Mobile access is key but so is reacting to the workload as the day progresses. Inspections can run short, long or be canceled altogether, leaving gaps in an inspector’s schedule. Optimally, you would look for inspections close by that still needed to be completed. “Find Closest” does just that, for example find me the closest, incomplete Plumbing inspection (based on traffic). You then assign it to yourself and it is immediately taken off the other inspector’s daily stops list.

 

Custom Maps

SDL Portal was recently to rebuilt to use CartoDB for all built-in property maps. We also use CartoDB for many custom maps that a each of our client towns might need (Zoning Maps, Water Utility Maps, Storm Sewer Maps etc). All of these maps are now available in SDL Mobile with just a quick tap of a button. SDL Portal also integrates with ArcGIS Server maps so these maps are available as well.

Health Module – Preview

Health Inspectors can perform Food Establishment Risk Based Reports and generate state reports in PDF format while offline in the field (shown on Android)

SDL Mobile currently supports Construction, Code Enforcement and Public Works. Health and Fire Prevention are in development with Health very near public beta stage. Health supports the inspection process for Food License, Bathing License, Sewage Permit and Well Permits. Like our other modules, Health works offline when filling out inspection details, checklists and custom reports like the Risk Based Report above.
