The horticulture industry, like any other, has regulations it must follow. To ensure that those rules are enforced, a team of 35 inspectors monitor the 9,000 locations in New York state where plants and flowers are grown or sold.
A new mobile application is helping those inspectors do their jobs more efficiently. The Plant Inspections mobile application, launched earlier this year, digitizes a process that was previously done on paper. The app is loaded on iPads issued to inspectors, where it syncs with a backend licensing system and automatically updates inspection records. It also auto-fills federal forms that are provided as PDFs.Â More hereâ€¦
