DRC would like to hear how other councils have setup end-to-end digital
workflows that allow building inspectors/certifiers to access and mark-up plans
and DA's while out in the field.
For reference, we use Authority 7 to process new DA's submitted via the NSW
Planning Portal, which are then registered/linked to Trim (Content Manager
9.4). Currently, there's a lot of manual processing/steps involved in making
the required plans accessible for markup in the field, so if you have managed
to implement a 100% digital workflow we'd appreciate your insights to the below
1. What hardware and software is used in the field to remotely access and
mark-up PDF plans? Is this used solely for field work (i.e. tablet or phone
with pen/stylus), or is it the users primary desktop (i.e. Surface/laptop)?
2. If you use a cloud storage option as part of your workflow, how have
you maintained governance of data? Does it automatically save back to
(NB, the particular wishlist we've been provided is "Any solution that does not
require logging in, no emailing plans, automatic saving to trim and the use of
a stylus pen on a device or even an iphone (as a backup option)".
Thanks in advance
