All on-site inspection assignments by the WRD officers will assist in providing relevant information through this app such as man and material availability at project sites, physical progress of projects and causes of their delay, all accompanied by day-by-day geo-tagged photos and Others . Senior officials at headquarters will be able to immediately access and review this information and work on corrective action as needed.
