Introducing Inspective™ AI-Enhanced Inspections

Our state-of-the-art Inspective™ tool is an AI-powered mobile application that transforms traditional inspection methods. This advanced technology streamlines the entire inspection process, eradicates no-shows, and delivers precise results for initial, annual, and special inspections.

Features and Benefits of Inspective™:

  • AI-Guided Inspections: Inspective™ simulates the expertise of an on-site inspector, guiding users through the inspection protocol at any time that suits them—day or night. This flexibility allows for inspections to be completed without requiring tenants to alter their work schedules, significantly reducing missed appointments.

  • Comprehensive Analysis: By capturing and analyzing photographic evidence, Inspective™ meticulously evaluates each inspection area against HUD and HQS requirements. The AI-driven assessment ensures each property is compared against the Title 24 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Section 982.401 and HUD's inspection guidelines.

  • Automated Reporting: Inspective™ automates the generation of HUD Form 52580, delivering it directly to PHAs with a clear PASS or FAIL status, all monitored and quality-controlled by NAHRO-certified HQS inspectors.

  • Issue Resolution: When the AI encounters inconclusive findings, our certified inspectors step in to clarify and resolve any issues promptly.

  • Environmental Impact: By minimizing the need for travel, Inspective™ not only saves time but also contributes to a reduced carbon footprint, aligning with sustainability goals.

The IEI Advantage: With IEI's expertise, PHAs can swiftly tackle inspection backlogs, improve program participation, and enjoy the dual benefits of compliance and conservation.
