Health Departments Go Electronic - Inspecting More Restaurants at Lower Cost using Tablets
Orange County, California (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
Inspect2GO now offers tablet based software specifically designed for municipal health inspectors. The centerpiece of its offering is iPad software for retail food establishment inspections (see http://www.inspect2go.com/ehs/). The software is now expanding to Windows 8 and Android tablets. Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) and Department of Health (DOH) inspectors conduct audits electronically, with no clipboard or paperwork.
While conducting an audit, health code violations and corrective actions are filled in on the tablet via checkboxes and notes. Photos and on-screen signatures are stored electronically. Permit and other restaurant data is automatically prefilled-in by pulling the information from a database. The completed inspection report can be sent while onsite as a PDF directly from the tablet. Inspection data can also be stored on Inspect2GO’s cloud server, or health department servers. The applications are native, resident on the tablets. Therefore, a web or cell connection is not necessary while enter information during an audit.
