Asbestos survey tool for tablets

We have used HP/Compaq iPaqs and similar Windows CE based PDAs for many years as our chosen platform for our asbestos survey application. This proved to be a reliable and robust option and gave many years of service to most users. In recent years the marketplace has changed considerably and PDAs have been replaced by smartphones & tablets. We have chosen Windows tablets as our platform for the new version of our asbestos survey tool for AIMS and have started work on its development. The increased screen area compared with a PDA allows more information to be shown on screen, reducing the number of pages to be navigated. The option for 3G or WiFi connections on tablets allows data to be uploaded while away from the office – an important factor to ensure surveyors operating away from the office are able to ‘bank’ their surveys each day.

Clients who have existing iPaqs needn’t worry. AIMS 5 includes support for iPaqs so you will not be forced to buy new hardware until you are ready.

AIMS Version 5

Our popular AIMS asset management software has just had a major update. Version 5 of our web based Asbestos, Legionella and safety management application provides improved functionality and clearer pages with simpler navigation. We have also updated the underlying development language to suit the latest versions of Windows Server. It is easier to get to the information as there are fewer individual pages from the top level to the deepest level. Documents and photographs are now much more accessible and of course recent changes in legislation have been accommodated. The new version will work with all common browsers and can be accessed using tablets and smart phones.

Existing clients can be updated to this on request. Please contact us for a demonstration.

Training Management Software

Modus has developed an innovative application to aid training administrators manage the training requirements of an organisation. Juggling the various legislative training requirements for each post along with each employee’s personal development objectives can be very complicated. This software aims to allow these factors to be managed and training courses booked, joining instructions and post course feedback. The software records training outcomes and forms a training history for each employee. It also has a facility to match competencies, allowing personnel to be selected for tasks based on training courses attended, qualifications held and on-the-job experience.

The software have been developed in conjunction with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to meet the complex training requirements of the fire and rescue service, however the application would suit any organisation.
