IronPlanet inspection app
06 August 2013
Online equipment auctioneer Iron Planet has launched an iPad app for detailed equipment inspection reports.
The app, which is part of IronPlanet’s IronClad Assurance, will allow field inspectors to complete more detailed reports on auction lots out in the field. The app will provide step-by-step instructions for gathering key data, based on the type of equipment being inspected, a company spokesperson said.
“Since our online buyers don’t have physical contact with the equipment they’re bidding on, they rely on the data and images in our guaranteed inspection reports,” said Randy Berry, senior vice president of operations and services, IronPlanet. “Our IronClad Assurance guarantees the accuracy of these reports, and we want buyers to have access to the most detailed reports possible. This app improves the quality of our inspection reports while also reducing complexity for our field workers.”
IronPlanet’s app was featured at a series of technology seminars organised by Apple Canada in Montreal, Toronto and Calgary. The seminars highlighted the importance of mobile strategy, and showcased exemplary business apps, a company spokesperson added.
