With WinWam the inspection forms are turbo charged with intelligence. Observations cited on the form can trigger pop-up regulations. The inspector can append notes, create flowcharts, and attach electronic documents and digital photographs. At the end of the inspection, the inspector can capture the Person in Charge’s signature and print an inspection form in the field or back at the home office. Inspections can also be posted a Citizen Portal so that the community can have access to the results.
