Field inspection is basically paperless where WMA uses a mobile phone based field inspection custom made application. This is capable of capturing all asset details including photographs and measurements. This information is relayed real-time to the office through a cloud server. Information received in the office is processed using a customized data management software that has the capacity to generate report ready for final editing.
Wamae Mureithi and Associates uses custom-built Information Management System to manage it's office activity processes end-to-end. This system tracks all stages of valuation from
receipt to dispatch, keeping track of valuers and researchers assigned, stages completed, costs and time taken to ensure timely completion and cost-effective delivery. The system helps identify and deal with bottlenecks in the valuation process as well as appraise individual performance of members of staff. It also provides an electronic archive of all jobs done, making it easy to access past records. The system is constantly being upgraded to stay at per with today's exacting industry standards.
