Additional benefits and features of iReport360 are described below.

  • Daily field reports from Contractors and test reports from Special Inspectors will be available in real-time to all team members of a construction project. Therefore, the design professional will no longer have to “assume” the work was performed and the testing was completed. Proper documentation that all work was performed per the project specifications and building code is critical to reduce risk and limit liability for the design professional.
  • Notifications of deviations to project plans or specifications will be sent in real-time to members of the construction team. Immediate communication of deviations will allow the design professional to address any design problems in a timely manner which will reduce time wasted and the potential for long-term remediation or repair costs.
  • Architects and Engineers can specify iReport360 communication system to assure construction is performed per the design intent and proper documentation is obtained.  Click here for Project Specifications which require iReport360 for project documentation.
  • Design Professionals will have much more confidence that all documentation is being obtained to meet the requirements of the building code for the work currently being performed prior to beginning the next phase of construction.
  • Paperless reporting system will generate less waste and reduce cost. No longer will the Design Professional have to keep multiple copies of the same reports or not know if they have all of the reports because all of the reports are stored in the on-line database and are available at all times.
  • Professional and consistent reporting procedures will be helpful to design professionals that work with many contractors, architects, engineers, and testing firms.  Detailed report templates will guide field personnel to properly document construction activities.  The entire team will have more confidence that their work is being evaluated and properly documented per the requirements of the project specifications.  Proper documentation will reduce risk and lower liability.
  • When the inspectors use the iBC360 Special Inspection Building Code templates, the design professional will have more confidence that the construction activities are being evaluated and properly documented per the requirements of the building code.
  • Completed reports will always be available for review by each party of the project team in real-time. The time-stamped reports make each team member accountable to the entire team.
  • Professional and consistent reporting procedures will be helpful to design professionals that work with many quality control or special inspection firms.
