Audim Corporate Products

Our products are all based on the provision of Surveys using technology to gain the maximum benefit.

 

They are available individually or grouped. The key groups are Environmental, Nursing and Risk Management audits. To view each of these individually, please click on the navigation to them on the left.

 

The core system (Audim) is made up of three parts:

 

  • A mobile device (such as a smartphone, tablet or PDA) for recording the results of surveys carried out.
  • A central system (accessed via browser) where information can be analysed and reports created.
  • A means for keeping the central system in sync with the mobile device.

 

The Audim system can be used in a number of ways which suit your organisation.  It can be installed on your network, or we can host the system on the internet.

 

The mobile device

 

The device is used for undertaking surveys which can then be synchronised with the central system We refer to a completed survey is as an Audit.

 

 

Where: Once logged in, Users use a simple structure using Site, Location and Sub-Location to identify where the Survey is to be undertaken.

 

What: Users are offered a drop down box to identify the specific Survey they are going to undertake. Each individual question contains a detailed description (the Standard expected to be achieved, which Clients can customise).

 

Answers: Questions can Pass, Fail or receive a Warning. When items fail or receive a warning, a Task for corrective action is created.

 

Tasks: Audim has sophisticated Task Management Functionality which ensures tasks are passed to the relevant individual (or organisation) and remain open until corrective action is undertaken. Tasks can be managed via the PC or the mobile device. 

 

Walkabout: Not doing a survey but see a problem ? Walkabout provides the facility for the mobile user to log any fault they see whether it is part of the survey structures or not, and add it as an individual Task.

 

The central browser-based system

 

At the heart of Audim is the system where Users can access, analyse and manage data that has come in from Surveys, as well as printing reports.

 

Unlike software which has to be installed on each PC, the Audim central system can be accessed via any PC with a browser (such as Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox).

 
  • Once synchronised (see below) surveys can be viewed in detail or as part of reports.

  • Additional information (Managers Notes etc) can be added and corrections made.

  • Task Management and Action Plans. Individual Tasks created on the mobile device can be reviewed and grouped together to form Action Plans for distribution to client/service groups or individuals.

  • Calendaring. A "Microsoft Outlook" style calendar enables users to set and review the frequency of surveys that are to be undertaken. Tasks when synchronised are automatically entered into the calendar, changing colour  to red if overdue. Calendar data can also be exported to Microsoft Outlook and other i-Calendar programs.

  • Reports are easily generated and can be tailored to show different levels of data. The report can show a summary of all audits taken or a chart tracking performance over time. Most frequent failures can also be reviewed. Users can also create Customer Reports which combine data from any survey undertaken.

  • The system has intuitive Help facilities to ensure users are always able to find out how to get the best from the system.
 

 

Synchronisation

 

One of the key benefits mobile monitoring has over clipboard paper inspections is that of speed. Keyed data is transferred effortlessly to the central Audim system so that  reports and analysis can be undertaken immediately. Paper audits on the other hand need re-typing.

 

The Audim system makes it very easy to keep data flowing between users’ mobile device and the central system.  Answers taken on the device are sent up and Tasks and other updates are returned.

 

Depending of the client’s communications and network setup, mobile devices can be synchronised by: 

 

  • Microsoft ActiveSync / Windows Mobile Device Center (docking to a network connected PC)
  • Wireless WiFi connection
  • Mobile phone: GPRS, 3G, HSDPA
  • Bluetooth

 

All communications between the mobile device and central database system are encrypted and therefore secure.
