A sneak peek at EQMS Equipment Manager 6.8

Over 50% of quality professionals said they don't have a full picture of what business equipment they have during "Managing Equipment for Asset Care and Safety" webinar. 

Consequences of this include: 

  • Unsafe, uncalibrated equipment
  • Inability to fulfil an order because you don't have the equipment to do the job
  • Procurement delays or errors 
  • Wasting money, time and effort purchasing equipment your organisation does not need. 

EQMS Equipment Manager enables organisations to systematically maintain and distribute comprehensive equipment records, manage maintenance, calibration and safety checks, and optimise the use of company assets.

During the EQMS Spring User Group last month, Rob Needham, Technical Director at Qualsys, gave customers a preview of a new version of the module, EQMS Equipment Manager version 6.8. 

Needham said: "EQMS Equipment Manager 6.8. is going to be a big step up in terms of functionality and user experience. There are some really exciting changes which will make it much easier to manage equipment lifecycles and much faster for end-users to access the information they need."

 EQMS Equipment Manager enables you to manage the calibration history of assets.

With the module, you can:

  • Record part numbers
  • Serial numbers
  • Model
  • Asset code
  • Detailed technical and functional descriptions

The asset register makes it much easier for stakeholders across your business to find and understand the status of equipment. Users can easily drill down into the history of equipment - calibration audits, documents, standards, and a journal of entries specific to each asset, so you don't need to spend hours seeking the most up to date information.
