2022 Digie Award Winner: Urban Edge takes inspections mobile

Posted by Melissa Lee in: mobile, Real Estate, retail, Customization, Power BI, Low Code, Microsoft, MRI Integration, Dataverse, Power Apps, Property Managers

The Problem

Property managers travel regularly to perform inspections of all their managed properties. Each inspection must subsequently be recorded in an inspection form.

The existing inspection process involved generating an offline, Excel version of the inspection. This was time-consuming and inefficient, as numerous offline files had to be managed by each property manager with no centralized, consolidated, online repository of inspections. It was further not possible to easily add photo or video evidence of any property issues to an inspection.

They wanted one place to drive their reporting and dashboard agendas instead of having reports in separate tools and files. Due to Urban Edge’s alignment with the Microsoft stack, that place became Power BI.
