Inspekt – Inspections Management Solution
What is Inspekt?
Inspekt is our SaaS solution to manage the entire value chain pertaining to Inspections Services. The solution is aimed primarily at small to medium sized Service Providers as well as Buying houses or Importers based in the sourcing regions that have their own in-house Inspections teams.
We have made a quick presentation to outline what Inspekt is and how it could be of benefit to you.
MASTER DATA MANAGEMENT
The system offers rich master data management capabilities with an easy to use interface. This includes the ability to capture full Workforce information, Company (including Buyers, Factories, etc.), Client Programs and Contacts. On the fly MDM creation supported.
Establish your own Checklist items, On-site tests, Defects and pull them all together into comprehensive Section based Protocols and Checklists. You can create an unlimited number of protocols – both generic (product centric) or Client specific.
Our order management module also allows you to rapidly capture order information. Previous orders can also be cloned (copied) to create new orders saving significant time in the order capture process.
Orders can be visually scheduled with a clear view of inspector availability (green=available, red=booked) as well as one click view of the inspectors’ calendars.

Order execution dynamically renders the assigned protocol and allows for rapid data capture. Item results are automatically rolled up to the section and overall inspection level. Image attachments and captioning is easy & quick. Offline capability is also available!
Report generation is fully automated (with Word & PDF outputs in both long & abbreviated formats) saving hours of report typing. Report review workflows are integrated.

Our Pricing Rationale:
We are of the opinion that our growth should be tied to the growth of our customers. If our customers grow and are successful, then we grow as well. If they don’t then we don’t. It is a simple premise – but one that we take very seriously. Our pricing structure is fundamentally built around this premise. Most organizations in the TIC industry spend between 4% to 6% of their revenues to implement a robust IT systems and infrastructure setup. Using our solution should cost you substantially less than this amount – and should deliver benefits that far exceed the cost outlay (or the alternative of maintaining status quo).
