4Solo has recently launched Comply Tag and CompTrain for housing providers to automatically record in one online database all work undertaken on their properties and for real-time compliance checking.
Comply Tag enables users to set up tags to monitor every aspect of work undertaken on a property or site, with their contractors then downloading a free Comply Tag app to their smartphones. When the contractor starts work, they scan the QR code on the tag with their phone. Their location is automatically verified using GPS and when they scan off, a record is automatically created in the database showing who undertook the work, how long they took and verifying they were at the property.
Tenant can also use the app; by scanning a tag they can see a record of all the work carried out. For example, they can scan the tag on their boiler to see if the inspection is up to date alongside an image of the paper certificate.
For contractors, the work undertaken is recorded simply by scanning the tag and selecting the type of work relevant to the tag from a pre-loaded list, as well as seeing a history of previous work carried out, saving time on paperwork and helping to resolve problems faster.
4Solo’s CompTrain software stores and tracks all staff and contractor skills and competencies, entered online, imported from an Excel spreadsheet or via direct links to existing housing management systems. Staff or contractor cards can be ordered online, and delivered centrally or to individual sites; each card has a unique QR code to identify them in the 4Solo system.
CompTrain also includes online induction and training materials. All training and induction records are maintained in a single searchable and reportable database, eliminating the need for paper records.
