To supplement the many electrical test equipment that the electricians have, for a good number of years now we have produced our electrical reports and certificates on computer software meaning our customers have professionally designed and looking certificates and this set up allows us to maintain and view the thousands of test results in one place.
Although we have always had one laptop out in the field for completing test reports/certificates while at the customers premises our electricians have mostly completed them by hand and paper which means our office staff have to then input the results onto our computer software after the job.
Well from today we are introducing a new Apple iPad out into the field where some report/certificate results will be inputed straight onto the special software we have on this device while the electrician undertakes the tests.
The completed onsite report/certificate will then sync back to our office software and with very little back office work they will be ready to be forwarded to customers.
The new devices will also have pre-loaded electrical wiring regulations and technical documents to aid the electrician while on-site.
We plan to trial this over a period of time with one device with the aim to roll out the new devices and set up to our other electricians as we look to improve efficiency and service.
