Inspections generate large amounts of information that have to be recorded and managed efficiently. Although different strategies to implement new technologies to improve the inspection process are being developed, the industry and the municipalities still relies on paper based techniques. Therefore, problems such as potential loss of information, misunderstandings, and unclear instruction among different parties often occur. This paper presents a mobile application for improving the inspection process (Pick&Go). The application is based on a methodology that uses images and tags as a unique entry point. Pick&Go was then validated in Terrassa’s City Council to record accessibility information in the commercial buildings of Terrassa. Results demonstrate that mobile and well-implemented technology can help governments save money and be more efficient. The use of this application simplified and reduced the time needed to record accessibility information while the standardized information helped them obtaining consistent data to aid the development of learning techniques. The tracked information can also be used to inform citizens about the assessment of the commercial building accessibility in the city.
