I am new to this forum and already have some questions for all of you.
My name is Till and I work for a small company that is creating a product to improve inspections on ships (hull, safety, engine) and eliminate some of that administrative burden that comes with all the reports that always need to be sent.
Our tool will be a mobile app that lets you conduct inspections in a structured way and report deficiencies quickly. After an inspection is done, data is uploaded directly from the phone and will be accessible to the TSI/HSEQ on shore in a dashboard. No more typing in Word and Excel sheets.
Now to my questions:
What is the most annoying thing for you regarding frequent inspections (of any kind)? Is it conducting the inspection itself, planning it, creating the report or something else?
Do you sometimes forget to inspect something and realize it later, but you do not want to go back? Would a clear structure with a list that contains all items which are to be inspected help you?
What would be the biggest benefit of using this tool in your eyes (for you and the team on shore)?
Is there a reason why you would NOT use a tool like this?
I’m glad to listen to any feedback you have and if you are interested in knowing more about the tool, I will be happy to give more information. Thanks in advance!
