Be in complete control of every step in the process
Gain control by ensuring that the distance between the different steps is as small as possible. Defects can quickly number in the hundreds or thousands, and are assigned to numerous contractors. Having a management system in place for a complete overview is essential – Inspectly is designed exactly for this.
Identify snags, compile them into lists, and assign the tasks to contractors.
Project managers can follow the defect rectification live in the system, as well as resolve the snag through approval.
Contractors rectify defects and documentation is uploaded to the system.
At any step in the process, quickly export corrections and compile them into building files with one simple click.
The benefit of using Inspectly’s punch list module
Through every step in your project, Inspectly helps you plan your processes, manage your QA, and monitor your progress
Complete overview of your defect management
Inspectly gives you an overview of your snags and their status, i.e. initiated, underway, awaiting approval, or declined. You can also follow the documentation live, as well as receive notifications upon status changes.
Inspectly also includes a search filter so you can narrow down snags, with filter options including by contractor or by status.
Mark tasks for easy workflows
In Inspectly, you can see registrations on lists or directly on floorplans. With a visual overview of the location of defects on the floorplan, contractors can approach the tasks more efficiently. This is especially true in larger projects, where following a generic list might result in more time spent travelling between snags than on rectifying them.
Communicate directly in the app
From both the platform and the app, it is possible to add comments to your defect tasks. This is a simple yet efficient way to convey useful information about the context. An example could be if a contractor is awaiting materials necessary for rectifying the defect, or specific information about a snag status change.
Instead of typing, Inspectly also has the option of dictating notes for improved accessibility, ease, and efficiency.
Share progress with clients in ProjectWeb
With the Inspectly platform for project managers and the app for contractors, ProjectWeb is the access point to the system for third parties. Access is granted by the project manager, enabling the sharing of punch lists and documentation for reviews, rectification, and external approval.
Third parties are granted free access to ProjectWeb
Why is defect management important?
Snags and defects are serious issues that often cause significant delay and cost overrun in construction projects. In some cases, final payment for contractors can even be withheld until the punch list has been rectified.
Correcting defects is expensive for every party involved, causing both delays in the project as well as cost overruns.
Archiving snags in the system ensures transparency and that tasks will not disappear. Having the defects be traceable aso gives an overview of contractors involved in the processes.
Collect and share knowledge
By approaching snagging systematically and ensuring that documentation of every task is registered and recorded properly, you enable yourself to gain insight and learn from previous defects to prevent making the same mistakes again. This value comes in the long term, helping you lower the frequency and severity of defects and ultimately saving you time and money.
