Field Inspection Challenges
Are your operator rounds delivering real value to your business?
Field operators’ tasks are critical. They provide the insights your managers need to optimize operations, ensure worker safety, extend asset lifecycles, and improve plant performance.
Unfortunately, the true value of operator rounds eludes many industrial businesses. Why? Because most field activities are paper-based.
Technicians manually record their observations on a piece of paper or printout. Later, they transfer the data to a computer after returning to the office. It’s an inefficient workflow at best. And it leads to missed equipment checks and errors – and a host of other challenges.
Why Inspection Rounds?
Digitization of data
Field inspectors no longer have to enter and maintain tedious paperwork. Information is now collected and stored digitally.
Speed to competency
Brings speed and efficiency to cumbersome workflows and complex checklists, reducing human error and increasing competency.
Several industries are now setting very high regulatory standards. Inspection Rounds ensures proper documentation, tracking, and standardized data collection across the workforce.
Streamlines planning and scheduling of repairs, and identifies communication gaps and other challenges to help you mitigate risks and put safety first.
New Feautures Available now!
Now customer can choose between handheld devices or wearables. IR has been optimized for the small screen of the wearable; and voice commands have been added to allow navigation and data entry using voice only.
Now anyone can translate all parts of the application: mobile app, EasyConfig, Planning Board and reporting. The English language file can be downloaded as Excel file. Then translate the labels in to any language and upload the file again.
The system now can be configured to send the round results and the round deviations to DynAMo Logbook. The system can be configured to send the round results and the round deviations to a historian system via OPC.
Now customers can manage their devices and users for Inspection Rounds from within EasyConfig (graphical interface in cloud portal). Till now this was only working via Excel upload.
Now during round execution operators can look the last readings per task using their mobile device. All readings from all devices & users are available in the history screen.
No lost data – runs on the device and in the Cloud
Inspection Rounds runs directly on your mobile devices so field technicians can capture data, whether they’re connected to the Honeywell Cloud or not. With wireless internet connectivity, you get real-time transmission of inspection data through the Cloud. And there’s no loss of data if the connection is lost. Inspection Rounds works offline and will automatically synchronize your data in the Cloud when connectivity is available.

With Inspection Rounds, you’ll deploy nimble, dynamic strategies in the field. Benefit from higher uptime. And make better data-driven decisions based on superior analytics. With every workflow, Inspection Rounds works as hard as you do to get the job done quickly, correctly, and safely.
Many field operator professionals use an ad-hoc approach to inspection compliance. It’s a mix of paper-based systems, clipboards, databases, and mammoth spreadsheets – all of which can put the visibility, accuracy, and reliability of safety data at risk. These ad-hoc compliance systems also hamper productivity. Safety managers may spend more than 50 percent of their time – in some cases, all of their time – collecting, analyzing, and reporting compliance information.
