Caterpillar is taking the paper out of the machine inspection process with Cat Inspect, an easy-to-use mobile application that allows users to download machine-specific inspection forms and capture actionable information during their walkarounds.

Inspection types include Technical Analysis (TA1) inspection forms and Preventive Maintenance (PM) checklists. The checklists are serial-number specific, which gives users guidance specific to the Cat equipment they depend on every day.

Users can add ratings, make comments and take pictures during the inspection. Subsequent inspection reports lists items requiring attention, from immediate to normal. If users are inspecting machines with optional equipment not listed on their checklists, they can document that equipment and add the information to the form.

Besides eliminating the need for paper, Cat Inspect allows typed or dictated notes, off-line inspections, forwarding to the Cat dealer, and PDF distribution. Important alerts are also sent to VisionLink®, so users can get an even better overall view of their fleets.

Cat dealers and technicians have tested, improved and used Cat Inspect over the past year, ensuring an outstanding experience for all customers, especially those using a mobile device on inspections for the first time.

Cat Inspect is available at no charge for Android devices through Google Play, for Apple iPhones and iPads through the App Store on iTunes and for Windows 8.1 tablets through the Windows Store.

For more information about Cat Inspect, visit www.cat.com/catinspect. To get login instructions once you’ve downloaded the app, contact your local Cat dealer.
