Create test reports digitally

Document regular inspections, acceptance reports, test reports, recording of defects, inspections. For a long time, a new sheet had to be printed out, filled in, countersigned and filed for all these topics. This is not only very laborious, but also bad for the environment. The VDBUM, the Association of the Construction Industry, Environment and Mechanical Engineering, has now turned to Sharemac to put a stop to this.

The VDBUM has long been a strong partner when it comes to the implementation of technical test protocols. 300,000 machine and appliance inspections have already been carried out together with the association. In the collaboration with Sharemac, these years of experience and expertise meet technical know-how when it comes to the feasibility of a digital version.

“Our aim was to make the software interface as self-explanatory and intuitive as possible without losing sight of the necessary complexity,” says project manager David Peters from Sharemac. “Together with the VDBUM, we have managed to get to where we are now through constant exchange and feedback: Digital test reports can now be easily carried out online and offline via software from any location!”

But what exactly does “where we are now” mean?

In 2020, VDBUM came up with the idea of making it easier and faster for companies in the construction industry to create inspection reports. As one of the leading providers of software for construction companies, Sharemac was the obvious and logical choice as a partner. This is how the joint project came about, which has now gone live.

What can the VDBUM and Sharemac platform do?

First of all: carry out technical checks, of course. The user only has to go through a few steps in which they enter or drop down key data such as the location of the device. The last step is to add a digital signature to finalize the check.

The test report can then be conveniently exported as a PDF and saved to be stored centrally or sent by e-mail.

In addition, new organizations can be created or new machines and equipment added to the existing fleet in no time at all. These are then listed in the device overview with the current test status and can be viewed clearly.

Who can use the tool?

Currently, anyone who is a VDBUM partner can easily carry out technical inspection reports for construction machinery digitally. Not a customer yet? Then simply contact VDBUM and discuss the next steps.

However, Sharemac partners can also access the tool: “You can already create digital audit trails in SAM,” says Sharemac CEO Manuel Kimanov. “It was planned from the outset to also make the functions available to our partners and customers – because the entire construction industry should benefit from this collaboration.”
