SMART Stock Condition Survey has been used by Social Housing Providers to survey over
200,000 housing assets. The software offers unrivalled flexibility in terms of the
survey question structure, image capture and generation of electronic floor plans
with the PDA. Photographs of building elements and defects are prompted at relevant
points in the software and are captured with the PDA's integrated camera. Detailed
floor plans can also be drawn on the PDA to help locate defects or features such as
Services and Stop Cocks.
SMART Stock Condition Survey utilises a dynamic question structuring, with questions
based, where relevant, on previously answered questions. A broad range of question
architecture is available including options to capture Intervals Until Next Inspection,
Work Priority Ratings, Support Work Item Identification and Costings. The PDA can also
carry the full SEDBUK boiler database for on-site identification of heating systems as
well as integrating a full HHSRS and DDA question set.
A ‘copy’ function is also available which facilitates the importing and amendment
of data from one property to another on the PDA. eTech can also preload existing
asset data onto the handheld to facilitate validation and updating of the property
condition and attributes.
All data captured via SMART Stock Condition Survey
on the PDA is transmitted via the mobile data network
to eTech directly or into the client’s SMART Work
Management system. Condition data is then made
available by eTech in the correct flat file format to
match the property attributes and UPRNs in the
client’s Asset Management System for a seamless
import process. Full integration with a client’s Asset
Management System can also be achieved.
The success of SMART Stock Condition Survey is driven by a number of factors
– we’d say the most important is that the surveyors on the ground love the
software. eTech’s trademark user interface and traffic light system guides
users through the survey and ensures that a complete data set is collected for
