Ian H.

Excellent set up and operational support from all of the team

2017-09-11

It introduced an operations mechanic for the first time enabling area/ regional management to monitor operational standards and consistency remotely.

Pros

Was able to customise the software according to the needs of individual operational requirements. Enables the measurement of consistent operational standards with an instant clear feedback mechanism.

Cons

Need to consider the nature of the information and Dashboard in order to ensure the data is easily readable on portable devices "in the field".

Ronan R.

All software should work as well as this!

2017-09-08

Ease of access to my compliance reports and the ability to forward them as needed.

Pros

I could get entire site live in a matter of minutes once I had collected the site data. The mobile app needs no training so the roll out was effortless.

Cons

ECAT is not big on Templates but, you can set up any audit you want once you have it yourself. Doesn't have an inbuilt help desk.

Response from Electronic Compliance Audit Tools


Hi Andrej, thank you for sharing your experience with us. While you have only been using it for a short period of time, I hope you have seen the time saving advantages of the system. While the app can be used with no internet connection, it does require one when submitting an audit to connect to the cloud. As soon as it does this it will update the app with any changes, as well as displaying your results instantly on the Dashboard. However, if you find that you have a poor connection when trying to submit, the audit will be safely stored on the device until you find a better connection.

Thank you reviewing ECAT and if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Noonan ECAT user

2019-01-14

One system that can be used to answer a wide variety of our client's needs. Very attentive support function who have assisted in adapting the system to accommodate new requirements.

Pros

Can be used as a compliance tool as well as monitoring standards.

Cons

Reports with wider detail of information about audit results which could be filtered and manipulated in Excel would be more helpful than the limited range of reports available.

Response from Electronic Compliance Audit Tools


Hi Richard, thank you for your review. As you know over the years of using ECAT, we put a lot of emphasis in supporting our clients and using our knowledge to come up with solutions which work for them, so I am delighted to hear of your positive experiences. As you will also know we are consistently looking for areas to improve which is why users are now able to export reports into a Word document as well as PDF and Excel. However, we do understand that some of our reports are not the most `excel friendly¿ but we do hope that users are able to access the desired information through our other range of reports. Happy to reach out and discuss this further.
Thank you again for your kind words.

The software and the team are both excellent.

2017-09-15

Pros

Audits are easy to perform and easily customized. The dashboard provides an easy over view of audits performed.

Cons

Not much, perhaps how the reports appear when downloaded to Excel (takes extra steps to data mine due to merged rows/columns.)

Uncomplicated, convenient and delivers results!

2017-09-11

Centrally as mobilisation costs are low, unit based savings from convenient auditing and fast reporting.

Pros

The convenience of a web based app that works on multiple devices across various operating systems. Ease of use for the end user, which means on-site training isn't required. Ability to personalize the system to cater for very specific contractual needs. Fast response rate provided by customer support team.

Cons

Overall the reporting suite is very good, but due to the complexity of our contracts, we required extensive reporting capabilities.

There is nothing to dislike about the software.
