ARInspect has been selected as a Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) Tech 100 Honoree. This award recognizes companies and individuals driving tech innovation, implementing new solutions, and leading growth in the Greater Washington region.
ARInspect is on a mission to keep communities safer through the prediction and prevention of mass health and safety calamities with the company’s digital inspections and monitoring platform. The RPA-enabled platform digitizes field data collection and uses AI and proprietary data indexes to allow agencies to see trends and better predict issues before they become a public health crisis.
The nomination focused on the company’s ability to rapidly scale their solution to market where it is making a difference in how inspections are performed and keeping millions of Americans safer. Enforcing regulations is a central mission of government agencies. Every day, government inspectors are deployed into the field to protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the health and safety of the communities we live in. However, most inspections are performed the same way they were decades ago. That means many processes are still paper-based and require a lot of in-office data entry, keeping inspectors out of the field.
Customers are using ARInspect’s platform to inspect sites including gas, solid and hazardous waste. Before the solution, inspectors took notes by hand, including hand drawing maps, and then returned to the office to key in all of their data. This manual process not only took time, but it also opened up the data to data-entry errors. All data is now collected on tablets and sent directly into agency systems. Inspectors can pull up maps, take pictures and make annotation directly on images before uploading them. In the office, managers use predictive algorithms to prioritize inspectors’ schedules by identifying regulated sites with the highest risk for regulatory non-compliance.
In another instance, inspectors working on hurricane recovery are using tablets loaded with a specific workflow checklist for debris removal and federal recovery funding requirements. All information gathered in the field gets stored in that property’s file and sent immediately to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for funding decisions.
“Having our work recognized really drives home the fact that we are delivering a solution that is desperately needed by organizations charged with keeping our communities safe,” said Vivek Mehta, CEO of ARInspect. “We’re a proud member of the NVTC technology community and look forward to celebrating how the work of all of the listed companies is making an impact across a wide variety of customers and markets.”
