Software replaces paper based data collection
Posted: 13 July 2003
Terrington Systems has developed a truly platform independent software
package to replace paper based data collection.
Completely user configurable to individual site requirements, TransForm
provides a rapid application development tool for a variety of applications.
TransForm includes a powerful form generator, enabling users with
no specialist IT knowledge to replicate their existing paper forms
These forms can then be downloaded to a wide range of handheld
terminals, including all the latest intrinsically safe models, for
mobile data collection.
Efficient mobile data collection removes the need for intermediary
paper based recording, saving both time and money, and increases
accuracy of data.
Web enabled or networked options enable employees World-wide to
access the same standard templates, ensuring global consistency
of data collection. Faster, better decision making is a result of
seeing faster, more accurate data. Templates could also be completed
on-line by external service providers, suppliers or customers.
Instant validation enables operators to take immediate action to
resolve potential problems. Barcode scanning generates a new copy
of the form required for that particular asset. Numeric validation
limits, automatic calculations, configurable selection lists and
intelligent, directional route planning increase accuracy of data
collection, eliminate incomplete inspections and ensure precise
A calendar style scheduler ensures that inspections are regularly
completed, with any missed appointments immediately highlighted.
Full reporting and graphing tools permit users to analyse all data,
ensuring that any abnormal patterns are highlighted, therefore enabling
operators to resolve problems before they arise.
Designed to aid compliance with FDA, CFR 21 part 11 for electronic
signatures, TransForm contains a complete audit trail, detailing
user ID and date and time of every field completion.
Detailed historical records provide essential management information
quickly and easily.
- Elimination of illegible handwriting and lengthy data re-entry
- Ability to convert all paper based data collection systems into
one electronic system
- Minimised risk of breakdown with regular scheduled inspections,
increasing production and profit
- Ability to alter data collection activities at no extra cost,
with minimal effort and without affecting existing data or process
- Reduced paper storage costs with electronically archived information
- Ability to design, create and modify templates rapidly without
returning to the software developers
TransForm is suitable for many applications including:
Daily Plant Recording
