ECAT is an intelligent audit management solution that serves an array of industries worldwide who have significant auditing needs, enabling businesses to conduct accurate and frequent audits. Organizations are able to inspect safety, production, equipment, security, hygiene, processes, people, places, and more. Mobile technology allows users to get a complete picture of inspections while on-the-go, even when offline.
When setting up a new inspection, users define all the predetermined requirements once, and ECAT handles the rest. For each issue that might arise, users determine the information to be gathered, the action to be taken, the person to be tasked with resolving, the length of time they have to resolve and the escalation process. Once an inspection is downloaded to a mobile phone or tablet, users are able to inspect, regardless of internet connectivity.
Organizations can set a full inspection schedule as necessary, and define by hour, shift, day, week, month and more. Users can also enable ECAT to randomly select when and where to request additional inspections. Barcodes and NFC tags/discs can be affixed to equipment and locations, and scanned using any smartphone or tablet to ensure proof of presence. Users can tap to add and record GPS co-ordinates, location, time, and date.
ECAT’s highly flexible reporting engine allows each user to create their own personalized dashboard and reports, in order to quickly see what’s most relevant to them, and track their KPI’s. All top level reports link directly to the related detail, enabling users to drill down to details in seconds. Automated reports can be emailed whenever needed. Alerts highlight key issues, and filters help users find what they need by function, date, department, person and more.
