Asset management software firm CoreRFID is expanding into the US after winning a contract from a leading American construction safety company.
The Lancashire-based company is installing a new system for North Carolina headquartered Evan Fall Protection, which provides safety equipment for workers operating at height, to enable them to manage safety inspections of equipment and issue safety certificates in minutes.
The automated solution will replace manual processes and allow personnel to record inspections on site using a tablet. This information is then automatically uploaded to the secure cloud-based database and is immediately accessible to Evan Fall Protections’ customers who are using the equipment.
Evan Fall Protection, part of the SpanSet International Group, has six offices across the US and also specialises in inspection and certification services for the lifting and safety market.
The new system, IDXpert, was adapted specifically for the SpanSet group and is based on CoreRFID’s flagship CheckedOK solution, which is a market leader in UK and the Republic of Ireland and is used by companies worldwide. However this is the first time it has been adopted by a US company.
Launched in 2009, CheckedOK now offers a comprehensive asset management solution which incorporates modules for servicing, repairs and installation and enables a history of each asset to be maintained throughout its lifecycle.
Evan Fall Protection’s President Ed Conner says: ‘We wanted a solution that could boost the efficiency and data integrity of our installed systems and would improve consistency in executing inspections. I think we’ve found a great solution with IDXpert.
‘It also allows us to offer added value to our clients who can check the inspection status of the installed equipment, promote relations and aftersales support and capture new sales opportunities for replacements of legacy systems.”
CoreRFID’s technical director Munzi Ali says: ‘We’re market leaders for asset management systems in the UK and Ireland, with a growing international client base for the lifting, hoist and construction industries.
‘This new deal is the perfect opportunity to build a US presence.’
