Torfaen champions mobile technology that enables on-the-move working for building control officers

An intuitive Building Control app that supports officers in undertaking site visits and recording their findings remotely, is delivering significant benefits for Torfaen County Borough Council.

Idox’s OnSite Building Inspector (BI) app has been rolled out to all officers at the Council, equipping them with the information and reporting tools they need to complete work anytime, anywhere, and maximising productivity through more flexible access to data.

As the app seamlessly integrates with Idox’s back end system Enterprise – also used by the Council – officers are able to view, complete and create inspections on site, as well as sync this information to the back office once connected again, saving considerable time and supporting paperless working.

The Council has also been able to take advantage of Idox’s Ideas Hub – a platform that enables customers to submit requests for new functionality directly to developers, helping products evolve in line with specific client need. For Torfaen, the swift responses received by the Idox team have supported product releases and developments that have enhanced the effectiveness of the software for its workforce.
