For engineering firms and contractors, completing an Inspector's Daily Report (IDR) is a necessary but often manual and time-consuming process.

To demonstrate just one of the ways that  the Microsoft Power Platform and low-code AI tools can help your firm operate more efficiently, our team created an app that helps improve this process through image recognition and handwriting identification.

Activating Machine Learning Capabilities for AEC Firms

This Power App allows the often extensive checklist of items that must be monitored daily on a job site to be completed with enhanced precision and efficiency, and sent to sent back to the office in real-time.

Using pre-built artificial intelligence capabilities, this Power App quickly converts handwritten field notes into text. It also dynamically identifies equipment — and documents its status — by interpreting images. Because the technology incorporates machine learning, accuracy levels increase each time your teams use this tool.

This mobile app also provides a user-friendly approach to monitoring activities and maintaining documentation, and the capability to sync with cloud data means the information is easily accessible anywhere.
