Inspections with RFID Systems

Inspections with RFID SystemsDigitalquill’s NFC Grabber app is an affordable RFID solution to help you integrate RFID systems into your inspection processes. If you have a hotel, food outlet or you need to complete regular inspections of items or locations, then HF RFID systems can make your life easier.

NFC Grabber uses the NFC reader built into an inexpensive Android device to read the unique HF RFID transponder codes from embedded tags. It allows them to be accessed from another app, placed into the cursor’s location (for example to add them to a spreadsheet or other document) or sent to a configurable server via the internet.

By using a number of NFC transponders at specified locations, it is possible to require them to be scanned to prove that a location has been visited. RFID scans cannot be done remotely, and the transponder IDs cannot be duplicated. You can then use the scans to prove that Inspections took place for legislative requirements. This is ideal for fire safety or food hygiene inspections.

Monitoring Inspections with RFID systems

Digitalquill’s Inspection Monitor system uses RFID technology to track assets or locations you need regularly inspect – and it informs you immediately when a check has been missed or failed. This frees up time for managers and provides irrefutable evidence that checks have been done.

RFID transponders cannot be scanned remotely, cloned or copied. Your staff member has to have physically visited the location or asset the transponder is affixed to. You can relax in the knowledge that the work has been done. You will only need to review reports or system messages if something goes wrong.

If an exception does come up during a check, Inspection Monitor can automate the generation of tickets for repair teams: broken windows, missing bulbs and damaged doors can be corrected immediately. Because it is totally silent when all is going well, Inspection Monitor vastly reduces the amount of paperwork your managers need to sign off each day. You have complete flexibility to create checkpoints and group them into any number of inspections.

You can require checks to be completed in a specified sequence – for example for security patrols – or allow the flexibility for staff to manage their own workflows. So long as every HF RFID transponder scanned in the relevant timescale, you can give them the freedom to work as they wish. Every scan is safely recorded in a secure cloud server. You can show inspectors an audit trail and generate reports at the click of a mouse.

Inspection monitor replaces your pen and paper with RFID systems.

RFID Inspection Checks

Inspection Monitor RFID systemsInspection Monitor is a powerful and flexible way to add RFID enabled compliance checks to any business. This cost-effective system will run on your existing Android/iOS portable devices or on dedicated mobile terminals.

Inspection Monitor uses RFID systems to track assets or locations you need to have regularly inspected. It will inform you immediately if a check is missed or failed. This lets you free up management time and provides you with irrefutable evidence that checks have been done. This proof is essential where policy or legislation must be complied with.

Safe, Secure and Trustworthy Evidence of Checks

RFID transponders cannot be scanned remotely, copied or cloned. Your staff member must have physically visited the location or asset to which the transponder is fixed in order to scan it. You can, therefore, relax in the knowledge that the work has been done. You only need to review reports or system messages if something goes wrong.

When something does come up during a check, Inspection Monitor can even automate the generation of tickets for your repair teams. Broken windows, missing bulbs and damaged doors can be corrected right away. Because it is completely silent when all is going well, Inspection Monitor can vastly reduce the amount of paperwork your managers must sign off each day.

Flexible and adaptable system

You have complete flexibility to create checkpoints and group them together into any number of inspections. You can require checks to be completed in a specified sequence – e.g. to manage security patrols – or allow staff the flexibility to manage their own workflows so long as every location or asset is scanned in the relevant timescale. Don’t worry about record keeping because every scan and every inspection is safely recorded in our secure cloud server. You can provide inspectors with an audit trail and generate reports for proof of inspections at the click of a mouse.

NFC is a high-frequency RFID technology. Each NFC transponder is embedded with a unique code that can be used in inspection monitoring, asset management, access control, staff time clocking and many other applications.

The NFC Grabber app uses your Android devices’ built-in NFC scanners to capture the unique identification numbers from your HF RFID transponders and then use them in a variety of ways:

  • Create a global variable – a global variable with the value of the read is stored in the device, and can be read from another app
  • Send to server – the read is uploaded to a specified server address
  • Send to keyboard – the read can be used in a text input field within any other app, through a keyboard interface

RFID Food Hygiene Inspections System helps you get 5 star rating

RFID Food Hygiene Inspections System helps you get 5 star ratingTwo popular East Yorkshire pub-restaurants hit the news recently when they failed their food hygiene inspections. The Red Hawk in Brough and the Sandpiper in Melton were both told to make improvements to their hygiene regimes after environmental health officers found significant issues and awarded them just one of a possible five stars.

If you run a commercial kitchen, pub or restaurant in Hull or East Yorkshire then you will understand how important it is to keep a record of food hygiene checks for the FSA (Food Standards Agency).

RFID Enabled Inspection Checks

Inspection monitor can help you improve your Food Standards Agency Rating by enforcing regular inspections of your kitchens and establishment by your staff, thus highlighting where improvements need to be made and creating HACCP documentation.

The cost-effective system will run either on existing Android/iOS portable devices or on dedicated mobile terminals. Inspection Monitor uses RFID technology to track assets and locations you need to prove are regularly inspected – and it will inform you immediately when a check is missed or failed. This frees up management time, and gives you irrefutable evidence that the checks were done.

Safe, Secure and Trustworthy

RFID transponders are unique: they can not be scanned remotely, copied or cloned. Your staff member has to have physically visited the location or asset the transponder is fixed to in order to scan it, so  you can sit back safe in the knowledge that the work has been done.

You will only need to review reports or system messages on the rare occasions when something goes wrong. Because it is completely silent when all is going well, Inspection Monitor can vastly reduce the amount of paperwork your managers must sign off each day.

Flexible and adaptable

You have the flexibility to create checkpoints and group them into any number of inspections. Every scan and inspection is recorded in a secure cloud server so you can provide inspectors with an audit trail and generate reports at the click of a mouse.

RFID Food Hygiene Inspections System helps you get 5 star rating

RFID Food Hygiene Inspections System helps you get 5 star ratingA national study by the Guardian recently found that 1 in 7 takeaways fail hygiene tests and 1 in 13 fail in meeting basic standards. In our local area, Hull restaurants fared even worse than the national average with 1 in 6 failing the inspections – due to poor standards or not following procedures.

If you operate in the food sector then you will understand just how important it is to meet the food hygiene standards. The poor publicity associated with achieving a low mark will drive away customers. The challenge for bosses is not just setting up the regime of inspections and cleaning – but making sure it is complied with, and recording the results of those inspections.

Inspection Monitor

Digitalquill’s Inspection Monitor is the solution you have been looking for. You can ensure that cleaning routines are completed, and recorded. We capture documented unalterable data that proves your inspections took place in accordance with HACCP. The system is silent in normal use, and you will only be bothered by notifications when something is missed, or when something goes wrong. This means you have peace of mind and can focus on running your business instead of micro managing inspection activity.

Key Features of Inspection Monitor:

  • Supports RFID technology
  • Can run on your existing iOS or Android mobile devices
  • Alerts management only when inspections are missed or failed
  • Powerful reporting features
  • Secure off-site data storage – with unalterable data as evidence for inspectors

Food Standards Inspection Software

If you finance or run a takeaway, restaurant or commercial kitchen, insist that Inspection Monitor is used on the premises. The businesses using our product are now achieving ratings of 4 and 5 on the food standards inspection; yet spending less management time enforcing the routines with their staff.

They ask businesses to:

  • Work with them to make sure their premises are safe
  • Update risk assessments and safety procedures
  • Help to reduce the number of false alarms
  • Help to protect themselves from arson
  • Share fire safety information with staff

Your local fire and rescue service can help you protect your business from the risks of fire: find their contact details at www.cfoa.org.uk/frs.

Health and Safety Software Solutions

Digitalquill can help businesses manage their health and safety through innovative software solutions. Our products are designed with the busy manager in mind, and only alert you when an exception occurs. This means that supervisors can spend more time working and less time filling in forms.

Fire Door Monitor

Fire Door monitor is our software solution to the perennial problem of staff leaving fire doors propped open. Misuse of fire doors is not just a serious health and safety risk in the event of fire – it is also putting you in potential breach of the law.

Fire Door Monitor uses a combination of hardware and software to alert a manager when a fire door is open for longer than a defined period. This means that normal use for access does not trigger an alert, and you do not need your health and safety officer to constantly patrol the area. This is particularly useful when your business spreads across multiple sites but there is only one person ultimately accountable for fire safety.

Inspection Monitor

Inspection Monitor is Digitalquill’s solution to automating any kind of inspection regime. It is fully configurable and can use RFID technology to prove that a physical location has been visited.

One of our clients had a problem with youths setting fire to boxes outside his warehouse. Inspection Monitor proved to be the perfect tool a checking process to be implemented, put into practice and reported on. Management were instantly aware if there was a problem, or if a check was missed – and the system is otherwise silent and unobtrusive.
