Engineered Systems Improves Crane Safety with Field ID Inspection Software

Toronto - Nov. 22, 2011 - Engineered Systems Inc., a major provider of overhead cranes, trolleys and hoists in the U.S. southeast, has chosen Field ID inspection software to strengthen its safety compliance management and improve the efficiency of equipment inspections.

The company, which until now used pen and paper to record most safety inspections, is implementing Field ID to enhance its compliance processes, improve the communication of results to customers, and gain faster access to comprehensive safety information.

Engineered Systems attaches RFID tags to crane, trolley and hoist components. Using mobile devices and Field ID's cloud-based inspection software, Engineered Systems' safety inspectors can now instantly identify equipment at any customer location and access information such as the date of last inspection, certification deadlines and work orders to repair safety deficiencies. The company also uses Field ID to certify equipment and to immediately notify customers about parts needing repair or replacement.

"We're in an age when this kind of technology is expected by our customers," says Tim Wilson, Head of Electronic Inspections and Assistant Project Manager, Engineered Systems. "Our company is dedicated to customer service excellence, and Field ID helps us deliver."

Other Field ID benefits cited by Engineered Systems include: reduced paperwork; more accessible and better-organized information; access to equipment safety history; and improved customer compliance with manufacturer specifications.
