      I’m looking for some info with respect to tablets. Are you using them in your day to day operations? What sort of programs do you use? Tablets vs. pen & paper pros and cons? Costs associated with programs?

      Looking more into inspection notes, pre-plans, etc.. already have a good idea as to how they can be used for education.

      Feel free to email me, [email protected]

      We have moved away from tablets.  We have endorsed some electronic forms, but still feel there is room to progress.

      I use pen and notebook. While I do have a tablet available, and do use it in the field for some aspects of my job, inspections and investigations isn’t one of them. I only have experience with our current software and it is not user friendly for inspections – at least not without a TON of back-end setup. Some of the other programs might be more user friendly but I simply don’t have experience with them.

      For efficiency in the field, it’s hard to beat my pen and notebook. There might be a bit more work back in the office to type up an Order than if a program did if for me but we aren’t there yet.

      Kevin, going away from tablets, did you go back to pen or something else?

      I was meaning we’ve progressed from tablets of stone with the chisel!
