How Toronto-based Tap Report is transforming workplace inspections

How Toronto-based Tap Report is transforming workplace inspections

Eric Emin Wood   @ericewood Published: April 6th, 2018 Tap Report co-founder and CEO Paul Amendola had been managing fire and life safety inspections in Toronto’s financial district for six years when he started looking for digital solutions that would help him navigate the multiple inspection reports, maintenance orders, and asset approvals that kept coming across his desk – and found little. The closest he remembers finding was a few barcode-based systems that were “very difficult to use – and very expensive.” Tap Report co-founder and CEO Paul Amendola knew firsthand the frustration felt by workplace inspection teams – and wanted to help them. “It was very difficult to stay on top of everything,” he says. “Staff would sign off on what they thought was the kitchen in the north east corner, but unfortunately it would turn out to be the south east corner, which we wouldn’t find out until the tenant started complaining – and that happened a lot. People were making

Toronto Tech Startup Revolutionizing the Life Safety Industry One Tap at a Time

Toronto Tech Startup Revolutionizing the Life Safety Industry One Tap at a Time

There’s a new startup on the block, disrupting and changing the way life safety related inspections are performed. Regular inspections of equipment such as fire extinguishers, first aid kits, emergency exits etc. are required under various codes and legislations governing commercial buildings. Most companies meet these requirements by completing the inspections manually. This involves inspectors, signing a paper tag for each piece of equipment and sorting through their checklists to document that an inspection was completed. This manual inspection method wastes valuable resources, especially time and money. It is also prone to human error, which can result in damage to the company’s brand and reputation, leaving it liable in the event of an incident. Tap Report has come on scene to solve this problem. The company uses modern near-field communication (NFC) technology to move inspections from archaic pen and paper recordkeeping to automatic and instantaneous reporting. Each piece

How Toronto startup Rapid Evac is creating safer workplaces

The Everest program is a series of advanced advisory sessions offered by MaRS’  Information and Communications Technology Venture Services group  to help early-stage founders scale their startups. We call the program Everest because being in a startup is comparable to climbing a mountain: you need to know how to best use your limited resources in order to succeed. After the initial enthusiasm for their new ventures, reality sets in and experimenting and pivoting begin as startup founders search for the perfect product-market fit. Everest exists to help startup founders through the tough times or, as  Paul Graham  puts it, through “the trough of sorrow.” The program focuses on filling the gaps in a startup’s business plan via intensive discovery, business model testing and validation, beachhead segmentation, rapid product iteration, team building and innovation accounting (that is, identifying metrics that matter). From time to time I’ll be interviewing some of the Everest prog
