Equipment testing, especially in the tank industry, is a serious business as health and safety legislation, together with insurance policy stipulations often prevent units from being used if testing is overdue. It is important to keep track of the testing requirements and due dates so that companies operate equipment in full working order, reduce repair costs and avoid legal complications caused by faulty units.
Tracking individual dates for even small fleets can be a time consuming process and it is easy to make errors when managing this task manually. Calculations indicate that the associated work costs around $3,000 per year for a fleet of just 300 tanks and a significant $20,000 for a company with 2,000 tanks.
By automating test tracking in systems, these costs disappear, due dates are flagged up, customers are alerted in good time and management reports provide that essential safety net.
