22 reviewers had the following to say about ProCalV5's features:
Needs a little help in the reporting area.
Easy to use and a familiar platform that is windows based.
A calibration report summary does not exist and the report has a single page for each item and can not be exported to a spreadsheet in a format that is usable.
An excellent software package, after reviewing many other CMS packages, ProCal was by far the best when considering functionality and cost
We have had two major outside audits since implementation, the Procal database and reporting tool greatly contributed to the successful audit.
I would like to be able to edit some of the names of the data fields to better suite our needs but overall I have been very pleased with this product.
Having worked with and validated numerous systems for various pharmaceutical and biotech companies over the years, including other calibration and maintenance management systems, I found ProCalV5 to be the easiest to work with, validate, and implement.
Would'nt know how to manage without it!
I personally would highly recommend this to anyone in charge of or performing calibrations especially with respect to audit potential of work performed.
The program is easy to use.
More initial training and help with the setup..
Once you get the program up and running its a great way to track information.
Excellent program for keeping track of Equipment calibrations/PMs/repairs.
A lot of lists to set up, and a lot of fields to fill out, very repetitive unless you have Admin utitlity to make lists avaialble for all institutions.
After the workshop, validation documentation, production implementations, data migrations, and official cutover activities are conducted.
The software provides the required tracking and documentation to ensure our facility remains regulatory compliant.
The software allows for the tracking and execution of PMs and work orders.
The approval terminology is a little confusing determining between finalized and approved documents. This requires understand for those in the process.
Time used: 2+ years

It is a bit overwhelming at the beginning, because of all the features. Break it down in little pieces and once you are comfortable with an area move to the next one. The technical support is always there to help with any questions during any phase of the implementation.
* Customer Service is always exceptional * The software has endless features, so it not only supports our current needs but it has a lot of room to grow * Extremely flexible to customize it to your company needs * Customized data migration process from our old calibration software

For some company's cal data, the ability to delete anything anywhere would be helpful.
ProCalV5 does everything I need it to do fairly well with out too many "Dang-it, it won't do that"s.
Need to be able to delete one (1) cal record without losing the entire record for that one instrument. I.e.- Reassigned an instrument and gave it a new Instrument Id. The old obsolete Instrument Id. keeps popping up unless you give it a "next cal due date" that's way in the future. OR... maybe, I just don't know what the H*#% I'm doing.
The Prime technologies team has exceeded expectations supporting Praxair in design, configuration, training and validation of the solution.
