What is an inspection compliance app?

An inspection compliance application is a web or mobile app that stores and manages data related to the inspection of goods. Enforcement agencies use these apps to record, track, and manage inspections and keep records of passing or failing inspection status. Inspection compliance apps typically include interfaces with a backend database, which stores information related to specific inspections. The app may display this information on an interactive map and allow users to create custom filters based on different parameters (such as location, type of violation, etc.). Some applications also enable users to submit new violations electronically from their phone. Users can then view details about those violations (date reported, description of the violation). Some inspection compliance applications also allow users to upload pictures for each violation they report.

Inspection compliance apps are similar to any other mobile inspection or auditing app with the exception of having a specialized purpose. Some popular inspection compliance applications include Bluebeam, TSheets, and G-Cloud.

What is the typical cost to build an inspection compliance app?

An inspection compliance app usually costs $37,500 to build. However, the total cost can be as low as $25,000 or as high as $50,000. An inspection compliance app with a low number of features (also known as a "minimum viable product", or MVP) will be more affordable than an app that includes all intended functionality.

How to successfully grow your inspection compliance application

An inspection compliance app can grow its user base by targeting specific industries, such as manufacturing or restaurants. The inspection process is highly regulated and requires a high degree of traceability, so the on-boarding experience for new users should provide an explanation of how the system works, as well as information about what to expect from the inspection process. Inspection compliance apps also need to provide functionality that allows users to report problems or follow up on inspection results.

Risks and challenges of building a inspection compliance application

An inspection compliance app faces both legal and logistical challenges related to the collection of sensitive personal information and the processing of transaction data. Inspection compliance apps are required to handle personal data in accordance with a series of complex regulations related to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and other federal, state, and local laws. It is recommended that you consult with your legal counsel to determine how your application is subject to regulation. Inspections compliance apps are also required to process user data in a secure manner, including complying with encryption requirements and security audits.
