One new advance is that (touch pads) can use software that enables Construction Inspectors to fill in a (client-specific) (daily report template) from the site, which can then be (e-sent) to where ever is necessary, along with digitized photos, in real time, so-to-speak, cutting down on lost, wrinkled, semi-readable, paperwork...

Decisions on what, if any, actions should be taken, changed, etc., can now be made more effectively, based on the increased clarity, of more ''hard'' information, more quickly available...
