1. Sablono

Screenshot 2024-07-01 at 17.19.25

Sablono is a construction quality management software solution that works to streamline and enhance the inspection process on construction sites. It automates and standardises inspections, facilitates real-time sharing of information and centralises and stores all project data in one place.

One thing that sets Sablono apart from other construction inspection software solutions is its interconnected, detailed workflows that bring together all aspects of progress, quality and cost in a single connected system.

This connectivity combined with granular project management gives an accurate, in-the-moment picture of what is happening on site, rather than just a broad snapshot of a single aspect of the project. In other words, Sablono promotes true visibility.

Because of this, Sablono helps prevent issues, keep quality high and ensure compliance in even the largest, most complex construction projects.


Schedule and standardise your inspection workflows

workflow screenshot - laptop

With Sablono you can schedule more than 200,000 activities and create detailed workflows to streamline your inspections and make sure nothing is left to chance.

Define everything from the flow of trades, hold-points, required documentation, roles and responsibilities and more to keep your project progressing smoothly without any delays or hold-ups.

You can also decide which activities will require sign-off and when in the workflow this will happen, then assign this role to your management team to automate inspection planning.

In addition to this you can create customised QA checklists in line with quality standards and the wider project requirements. These checklists outline the specific questions that need to be answered to ensure consistency across all your inspections.

You can even turn your workflows into repeatable templates to easily replicate best practices across your project portfolio.

Have trades document work in the field

quality mobile

Report on-site from the Sablono mobile app to save time - even while working offline. Based on your predefined workflows, trades can see what documentation they need to provide for each activity they complete. They can then attach the relevant documentation directly to activities using their phones and any updates made in the field will automatically sync to the desktop app.

Here’s how it works when it comes to inspections:

Trades document work as it is completed using the Sablono app. They can take photos on the go and upload them to Sablono in moments – these photos are geo-tagged to provide evidence of where and when the photo was taken.

They can also attach notes and relevant documentation to provide useful context that can be used in inspections.

Once work is submitted via the Sablono app, management can then review this, but more on this in the next section...

Reduce the need for uncoordinated site walks

Since Sablono is a connected digital system, all work reported is stored in one place. Traditionally, uncoordinated site walks are needed in order to establish the status and quality of works, but with Sablono understanding what work is ready for inspection is as simple as pulling out your phone.

Sablono’s Activity Tracker allows you to quickly see all reported works in one place so you can easily spot issues and hold-ups.

{Want to try Sablono free? Sign up here to get started.} 

Zoom out to get a comprehensive project overview, or filter by area, deliverable, team or status to get specific project insights. You can quickly drill down to the most granular level of who did what when for each activity and see the relevant documentation attached.

Once you build management sign-off into your workflows, you’ll also immediately be notified once work is ready for review or when an issue occurs, so you can inspect it without delay.

Get real-time insights about site performance

Intuitive charts and KPIs help consolidate your inspection data so you understand how your project is performing and can easily adapt to prevent the same mistakes from happening twice.

Drill down to areas, teams and even specific activities to understand your performance in detail and spot trends.

Streamline the resolution of issues

Sablono also works to streamline the resolution of open issues. Pre-define codes and descriptions for all issue types to standardise documented issues so they’re easier to identify and resolve.

You’ll also no longer have to manually track down issues. Instead, find all your issues in one place to quickly address any open issues. Use extensive filters to easily find the issues that are most relevant to you - from the team that carried out work to the specific area and so much more.

You can then generate automated PDF reports and export them in moments to quickly share issues with your project partners in order to keep them updated.

Generate a detailed digital record of all inspections

digital audit trail screenshot

Sablono’s centralised platform means that records of everything that happens on your project are automatically saved in a digital audit trail.

Go back in time to understand everything that happened on your project. From status changes and the people responsible to attached QA checklists, notes, and reported issues – every detail is documented.

Improve accountability in your team and minimise disputes with an undisputable record of 'who did what when?'. With a reliable source of truth that shows exactly what happened, you can easily address questions like "When did the team start working on it?" or "Who performed the final check and gave the green light?".

This digital audit trail of all project data runs for decades and can be quickly and easily accessed at any time to provide evidence of quality and compliance standards being met.
