Pervidi Paperless Inspections – the Industry-Leading Mining Inspection Solution

Pervidi’s Inspection Software tailors its functionality specifically for the mining industry by building the solution custom to an organisation. Every mine is unique in layout and in composition, and so both the mine and or inspectors’ needs will also be unique. Pervidi excels in providing a solution that caters for all within the industry.

Today the inspection industry can take advantage of mobile devices like never before. IS-certified (Intrinsically Safe) mobile devices give inspectors and operators the possibility to use software as a method for recording, with all the features and functionalities of a tablet /smartphone associated with it. The camera function, speech-to-text services and easy annotation on the device gives inspectors a versatile input method. The glaring problem of inspection methods in mining is that there is rarely a Wi-Fi or 3G/4G signal strong enough to penetrate the earth’s bedrock. The latest digital inspection checklists combat this through offline recording abilities meaning no inspector is location restricted. Such a wide variety of features in today’s mobile device means inspection checklists can therefore become a more detailed and accurate piece of recording.

Pervidi’s Industry Leading Software Features Include:

Automated corrective actions:

Configuring to automatically create corrective actions based on deficiencies recorded by your inspectors on their mobile device. These corrective actions can be automatically emailed to the appropriate person or user with all information required to rectify the deficiency. The automatic corrective action can include the annotated photo of the deficiency as well as the speech to text report.

In-house/Cloud Hosting:

Pervidi allows clients to store collected data either on the mine’s in-house system or to use cloud hosting services (SaaS). The in-house implementation provides long term cost savings and easier integration with other systems (e.g. ERP, HR, Asset Management etc.) whilst implementing on the cloud provides for expertise and maintenance of the data. The ability to chose either of the systems allows for great organisational customisation with a solution that will form around company requirements.

One-to-one ongoing support:

With a team of tech support continuously available to assist you throughout the process, your business’s inspection checks will be significantly improved from day one. Via incorporating Pervidi in your workplace you can be reassured that your workforce is working in a thoroughly inspected area. Changes to your business priorities or expansion goals can all be discussed with your Pervidi support team at any time.

Benefits for Management:

Paperless solutions also represent a valuable inspection method for those managing the process. In-depth analysis and metrics mean dynamic reports can be created via the software. This, like the storage of the data can be in-house or through cloud-based computing, removing the need to store dusty paper checklists storage spaces.

Pervidi automates checklists, work orders and any type of inspection, making inspections more rigorous and more time cost-efficient. Inspectors and other mine employees can benefit from the digital solution as they are able to use the same inspection software across their field activities, all the data and results synched on one platform. This is especially useful for organisations with a range of safety inspections and compliance activities, as there is a clear audit trail and simple sharing of data with third-parties if desired. Safety inspectors and other personnel can have numerous custom checklists created to inspect all compliance elements of the mine.

Inspectors and management are often overwhelmed with the numerous regulations such as ISO 19434: 2017 (Mining – Classification of mine accidents) that they must abide and refer to and need to reference. Large and bulky paper manuals can be cumbersome to carry to and from each location as well as unnecessarily time consuming to navigate. Pervidi luckily allows any paper reference material to simply be attached to any checklist subpart and quickly referenced to. This allows for a more efficient work and inspection progress as well as minimising the weight of necessary guidance material.
