Start-up's safety app given a boost by Microsoft

Partnering with tech giant Microsoft, Australian start-up SafetyCulture now has its workplace audit and inspection app, iAuditor, available on the Windows 10 Store.

The app allows users to conduct quality audits, security inspections, employee training programs and asset maintenance tests to raise the bar on workplace quality and safety.

The Windows 10 interface now runs on more than 300 million devices worldwide. According to SafetyCulture, native Windows functionality offers users a streamlined experience for collecting audit and inspection data and syncing it with the SafetyCulture platform, even in remote sites.

“Working with Microsoft and its customers brings us one step closer to our core mission — helping build safer workplaces,” said Gillian Findlay, chief operating officer at SafetyCulture.

“With availability on Windows 10 and automatic syncing with the SafetyCulture platform, the SafetyCulture iAuditor app creates a seamless experience for workers and managers alike to conduct offline inspections and analyse the data to improve operations.”

The company is an example of a successful Australian start-up, growing from a small operation in Townsville to becoming a global leader in workplace safety, with well-known companies such as Coca-Cola Amatil, BHP Billiton and Qantas all using the app.

SafetyCulture says expanding iAuditor to Windows 10 has resulted in hundreds of sign-ups before the app’s release and has continued to fuel the company’s steep growth trajectory, as the software has been used to facilitate more than 30 million inspections to date.

“Mobile is the perfect vehicle to help companies maintain safe, quality workplaces across the globe,” said Chris Bright, ISV lead, Microsoft Australia.

“In an increasingly connected world, it’s critical for organisations to protect their people and environments, and partnering with SafetyCulture to bring the number one app for conducting safety inspections into the Windows 10 app store makes this goal a reality.”

SafetyCulture empowers employees to take responsibility for their personal safety while providing rich data analytics that offer managers a window into on-site operations. As a result, organisations can cut inspection times in half, anticipate and avoid problems, reduce business costs and ensure a safe and quality workplace for staffers and contractors.

iAuditor is available on iOS, Android and Windows 10. For more information, visit
