While a photo will give those receiving the image detail of specific damage, using AutoCheck’s photo and image functionality will greatly enhance the picture of the condition of the vehicle at the time of inspection.
No more drawing on the actual vehicle
A dent or a minor scratch on a panel under flat light can be difficult to identify on a photo. AutoCheck’s photo annotation functionality allows inspectors to highlight the damage. Once the photo is taken inspectors can also crop the image to zoom in on the specific area of interest.
Vehicle images give context
We have spent some time upgrading our vehicle images and these are now available with the latest version of AutoCheck. Vehicle images allow those reading the inspection report to get a complete picture of the damage on a vehicle. This can also tie to any specific photos that have been taken so users can bring everything together
Build a photo collection process
Do you have a set of stock photos you want your inspectors to capture? Through AutoCheck's form build functionality, organisations can now design an inspection process that will direct inspectors to capture a set number of photos. The requirement of each photo can be clearly defined so the inspector understands exactly what photo needs to be taken.
Static images not enough for you? AutoCheck now has the ability to also capture a video of the vehicle. This means inspectors can walk around the vehicle and comment on any important aspects. If anything was missed in the inspection, then companies can go back to the video to confirm. You may not win an Oscar, but it could save a significant amount of time and money on any dispute.
We have thought about email as well
While it is great to have high resolution images available with the inspection, receiving an inspection report bigger then Ben Hur may cause issues. We have catered for this by scaling down the images sent with the inspection to a more manageable size while still retaining the high quality images on the server.
Control how photos are uploaded from the device
Sometimes sending megabytes of images over a mobile network can be troublesome and depending on the data plan may also be costly. Users have control over when photos and video are sent to the server so the inspection report can be uploaded for review but the photos can be held back until a faster wifi network is available. Once all the photos have been uploaded to the server, the inspection report can be emailed to the necessary recipients.
