Why scan text in inspections?

We understand that data entry can be a big part of inspections, from entering serial numbers to recording system readings. We also understand that manual data entry can be time-consuming and is prone to human error. With iAuditor, you can capture lines of text as responses simply by scanning them with your device's camera.

  • You can only use the text scanner with questions using the following¬†response types:

    • Person (title page)

    • Document number (title page)

    • Text answer
