Leading equipment testing specialist switches to RFID system
One of Ireland’s leading testing and inspection specialists for lifting equipment has switched to a new RFID system to improve safety and efficiency.
Cork based Anderco Lifting is using CoreRFID’s CheckedOK system for its on-site reports.
CheckedOK offers equipment safety testing and inventory reports enabling users to pull all data together in one place and send it directly to clients. Its RFID based system can reduce reporting times from a couple of days to a matter of minutes. It can be integrated into users’ IT systems and customised for specific client needs such as adding new equipment categories.
Anderco, which is well-established in the Irish utilities, chemicals, construction and petroleum industries, is planning to offer a new training service for its CheckedOK users.
Anderco’s MD Jim Lennon comments: ‘Our previous system could no longer deliver the increased functionality, flexibility and time efficiency clients increasingly want from their reporting systems. CheckedOK enables us to offer clients the service they want as well as improving our processes, especially in terms of booking in regular checks.’
CoreRFID’s technical director Munzi Ali comments: ‘The CheckedOK Solution is widely used to help improve safety management in construction, engineering, manufacturing and chemical industries.
‘The system enables customers to easily collect and access inspection data using handheld computers, Android and Windows tablet devices or mobile phones and so reduce human error as well as speeding-up the process.
‘Even though its well-established, we’re looking to continually update its capabilities and functions and we recently added a camera to complement data collection.’
CoreRFID’s Irish client base includes long-time users of CheckedOK Walter Watson, which manufactures overhead cranes, Prolift Handling, a supplier and service provider of lifting and material handling equipment and Hoistech, a specialist in manufacturing and testing lifting equipment.
