Top 3 Considerations for Enterprise Mobile Auditing

In addition to so many other benefits, leveraging mobile devices in the enterprise increases the efficiency and accuracy of data collected about the enterprise, itself. One benefit of adopting new technology is it gives you an opportunity to also assess your audit process and audit questions to ensure they are optimal. Put down the pen and paper and start enjoying all the benefits mobile provides. Reclaim the countless hours spent scanning, entering, and handling paper forms while ensuring accurate, trackable results. In this blog post we’ll explore the top three considerations for enterprise mobile auditing: 1) objectives and scope, 2) context and 3) audit design.

 

First, it’s important to clearly define the objectives and scope of your audit. For example, are you looking to audit the performance of an entire store—and store safety is one aspect of this? Or is the key focus safety itself, and you want to ‘drill down’ into the details of safe work processes? Mobile Audits let you segment surveys as discreetly as needed, so rather than try to capture everything at once, you can set objectives and scope upfront to really focus your efforts. Once you do, you may realize that what you had in the past as one survey would be better broken out into 2 or 3 ‘bite-sized’ surveys. Shorter surveys help improve adherence because they take less time to execute. Plus, they can help segment data correctly for reporting later on.
