Zurich QualityNet enables contractors to measure the effectiveness of their quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) processes and offers indicators that identify where quality defects are likely to occur.
Failure to successfully identify, communicate and correct work in a timely manner can lead to your liability for defects in design, workmanship or materials. And, as competition across the industry increases, it becomes a challenge to continually improve the quality of work while being given less time to manage the QA/QC process. The longer it takes to identify and correct issues, the greater the potential for increased costs in warranty and call-back work.
Zurich QualityNet for Construction, a proprietary service from Predictive Solutions*, involves the recording of quality observations using a combination of handheld devices and document scanning technology. These observations are merged with predictive models to generate real-time reports on possible quality risks. Contractors can then use these insights to make operational, production or material changes that help prevent defects from occurring.
By minimizing the delays in reporting and facilitating immediate action based on insightful business intelligence, QualityNet can help to minimize long-term construction defect liability and increase employee participation, competency and accountability in quality control processes.
