TesTex Asset Integrity Management Software Demonstration
Alex Beamer from Smashed Crab Studios and our Asset Integrity Manager Trevor Richardson demonstrated our new, innovative Asset Integrity Management Software to the group. The feedback was welcomed with further meetings organised to run through on a one-to-one basis.
The software has been developed to provide a simple yet specific system to support Asset Integrity Management. The system is
- Simple and easy to use
- Secure and cloud-based (hosted on Microsoft Azure)
- Designed in conjunction with Integrity Managers
- Ideal for planning and scheduling
- Designed to enable the creation of WSE’s, RBI’s, Work Orders, NII and more
- Configurable to customer requirements
- Designed to send email and text alerts for staged actions of sign offs and acceptances of all the activities such as WSE’s, reports, work orders etc
- Ideal for providing audit trails
