When performing field inspections, the ability to gather, analyze, and interpret data plays a crucial role in ensuring compliance, identifying trends, and mitigating risks. As a SaaS solution that digitizes inspections, we empower companies to harness the potential of data analytics for superior inspection results.

How an inspection model enables relevant data analytics

When you design a streamlined inspection process following a structured and standardized approach to data capture, you can establish a robust framework that enables inspectors in the field to capture relevant data points consistently. 

This standardized data collection methodology we have sharpened since 2011, forms the foundation for effective data analytics while always ensuring accuracy and facilitating meaningful analysis.

The data model we established provides you with comprehensive data sets that encompass various inspection parameters, such as performance metrics, quality indicators, asset history, and compliance data. Armed with this rich and diverse data, you can embark on your analytics journey, unearthing valuable insights and making informed decisions. 

Together with our customers, we identify the specific data they require for analysis so we can design the inspection model tailored to their needs. In many cases, this includes historical inspection records, assets’ trend data, and key performance indicators. 

By aligning the inspection goals with the data model we build together, our customers gain a holistic understanding of their operations, create safety models, and have real-time visibility in areas that require improvements.

Revolutionizing caravan inspections in the Netherlands

Smartflow, together with Aboma, is revolutionizing caravan inspections in the Netherlands. According to BOVAG, one in three caravans turns out to be unsafe during an inspection.

With all inspection data in one place, BOVAG expects to have real-time data access to the technical condition of over 50.000 caravans and counting.

This is a breakthrough for the caravans sector as never before have there been inspection data for so many caravans.

Safety on the road has been the catalyst of this successful collaboration between Smartflow, Aboma, and BOVAG. Together we have potentially changed the way the EU votes for the mandatory inspection of caravans in the future.
