Defect reports need to be shared with stakeholders such as subcontractors, or suppliers so they can fix the issue. With a digital system like Dashpivot you can streamline how defect reports are completed, managed, and shared with your team and other project stakeholders:

  • Access, edit and complete defect reports from any device: mobile, tablet or computer.
  • Use customisable fields to record defect details, assign a status, identify stakeholders, recommended corrective actions, provide defect sketches, and more.
  • Use e-signatures to sign-off before and after defect rectification.
  • Utilise version control features so stakeholders always have access the latest version of the report.
  • Set permissions so that only approved users can provide defect rectification sign-off.
  • Add photos and attachments to the defect report to provide supporting evidence.
