Next Gen is built to make team inspections and using multiple devices smooth and simple! A team inspection is any inspection where you have two or more inspectors working on the inspection, often at the same time.
​
For example, one inspector can be using a phone while inspecting the roof or the crawlspace and the other might be using a tablet while inspecting the house. Teamwork! 😎

Data Merging/Syncing

Each inspector assigned to an order will see the inspection in their mobile dashboard and have access to the report. When each inspector/device saves, the data will merge together. Here are a few rules to ensure seamless data merging:

  • Data added while working online automatically sends to the web 3 seconds after inputting data

  • When working offline, data is stored locally in a folder called "sync status". It sends as soon as the device is connected to the web as long as the app is open.

  • Inspectors will be notified if they have unsaved data in the app when it is not open. As soon as they open the app on a connected device it will begin to save.

Conclusion

Team inspections are a great way to improve efficiency and train specialization for multi-inspector companies, and Next Gen makes this process easier than ever! Using multiple devices is a great way to enhance safety by using smaller devices when a free hand is needed, or to take advantage of larger screen devices when showing clients/agents their major issues.

Please note that while one individual using the same login on two devices is permitted, sharing logins between multiple individuals is against our Terms of Use and may result in bugs/issues! Read more here.
