In the fast-paced world of construction, having accurate and up-to-date visual documentation is essential for maintaining transparency and efficiency. With Paperless, photos are more than just images; they are integral parts of your project’s documentation, providing visual proof and supporting detailed records.

How It Works

Integrating Photos into Workflows

The Photos feature is designed to be intuitive and easy to use, allowing you to incorporate visual documentation into your existing workflows seamlessly. Here’s how it works:

1. Adding Photos via Checklists

  • During inspections or routine checks, users can attach photos directly to checklists.
  • Photos provide visual confirmation of completed tasks, issues identified, or equipment status.
  • This ensures that all relevant visual documentation is captured in context.

2. Incorporating Photos in Briefings

  • Supervisors can include photos in briefings to provide clear visual instructions or examples.
  • This helps communicate complex information more effectively and ensures everyone is on the same page.
  • Photos attached to briefings can be accessed and reviewed by team members at any time.

3. Manual Uploads

  • Users can manually upload photos to the Paperless platform for general documentation purposes.
  • This is useful for capturing ad-hoc images that may not be directly linked to specific checklists or briefings.
  • All manually uploaded photos are stored securely and can be tagged and categorised for easy retrieval.

Use Cases 

1. Progress Tracking

  • Document the progress of construction projects with regular photo updates.
  • Create a visual timeline of the build from start to finish, showcasing milestones and completed phases.

2. Quality Assurance and Control

  • Use photos to verify the quality of work and compliance with specifications.
  • Capture images of completed tasks, installations, or repairs to ensure they meet required standards.

3. Incident Documentation

  • Record incidents, damages, or safety breaches with photos for accurate reporting.
  • Attach photos to incident reports to provide clear evidence and support investigations.

4. Training and Briefing

  • Enhance training materials and briefings with illustrative photos.
  • Use images to demonstrate procedures, highlight safety practices, or showcase equipment usage.

5. Client Communication

  • Share photos with clients to keep them informed about project status and developments.
  • Visual updates build trust and transparency, fostering better client relationships.

Key benefits include:


  • Photos provide visual proof and detailed records, improving overall documentation quality.
  • Improved communication and understanding among team members and stakeholders.
  • Integrating photos into checklists and briefings simplifies documentation and enhances workflow efficiency.
