What if you could empower your engineers, surveyors, and construction teams with a single tool that allows them to simplify Quality Assurance (QA) processes and dramatically reduce the amount of effort required to satisfy QA measures? Discover the potential of an AI-enabled Power App, built on Microsoft’s Power Platform, that can help your AEC firm achieve new levels of efficiency without spending huge amounts of time and financial resources.

Streamlining QA process

Let’s say your firm wants to prioritize quality assurance standards in land surveys. Your teams may start by building a detailed checklist of standards to be met before, during, and after each land surveying project.

The data you collect will serve many critical purposes, from targeting internal quality improvements to achieving ISO Certification and fulfilling state DOT requirements. You may also plan to use this information to create reports for clients to position your firm as a leader in quality.

But manually collecting data in the field is inefficient, and it leaves room for error or omissions. It also requires extensive office time to upload, input, and sort the data collected at multiple stages of a project.

Instead, your surveyors can use a Power App on their mobile device while they are on-site to complete the process in a few simple steps:

  • Surveyors begin at the app’s user-friendly central hub where they can quickly navigate to the survey they need to complete.
  • They answer required questions, add comments, and even upload photos or videos without leaving the app.
  • The data is submitted and filed in your system in real time.
  • The entire QA checklist, notes, images, and videos documenting every step of the process are completed in minutes. The data and client reports are accessible instantly.
