Easy access with AMTECHLive's pioneering technologies


Online – from any computer, anytime, anywhere

AMTECHLive is a new, online, family of products that frees electrical contractors and gas installers from being tied to a single computer. The result of 18 months research and development, AMTECHLive is being introduced with the launch of two new FREE products, FastTestLive and GasCertLive.

Both products are aimed primarily at contractors who haven’t yet deployed powerful software within their businesses. They enable contractors to very quickly and simply complete certificates, such as electrical Test & Inspection or Gas Safety Record certificates, online, from any computer using any internet connection, at any time. There is no need install any software; users simply log in using their personal, secure details to access all of the tools they need.

For ease of use, both FastTestLive and GasCertLive provide a selection of on-screen certificates, which can be customised with the addition of an electronic signature. They can then be saved in PDF format and either e-mailed to the client or printed onto plain paper, eliminating the need to buy specialised certificate paper. They also incorporate an online database for storing clients’ details, enabling fast and easy retrieval when a certificate is renewed.

“AMTECHLive empowers contractors to adopt a new and more flexible way of working,” commented AMTECH Sales Director James Cooper. “It is based on technologies that have been tried and tested in other sectors and are now being pioneered in the building services sector by AMTECH. We are also very proud to launch these new applications FREE to all,” he added.

A key benefit of the AMTECHLive concept is that users don’t have to worry about maintaining and securing software, as they have access to the latest version, hosted on secure servers. This feature is expected to be particularly valuable for smaller contractors without access to IT specialists and who haven’t yet progressed to full-functionality programs such as AMTECH’s FastTest and GasCert products.

Consequently, AMTECHLive is not a replacement for AMTECH’s market-leading desktop applications. Rather, it represents an entry-level introduction to the benefits of using industry-specific software tools in a contracting business. Furthermore, it also brings a glimpse of what the future may hold as the power of the internet increases.

AMTECHLive Products

FastTestLive is a free, very simple to use BS 7671 certification package, offering some of the key features of AMTECH’s market-leading FastTest program. This free version provides Minor Works and Short Electrical installation certificates to contractors who produce low volumes of certificates. AMTECH anticipates FastTestLive will be ideal for companies that are not yet using IT solutions for Test and Inspection certification.

GasCertLive works in the same way as FastTestLive, providing Gas Safety Certificates and Warning notices. This application has been developed free for Gas Installers who are increasing the use of technology within their businesses and only need to produce low volumes of certificates.

FastTestLive and GasCertLive are available free from www.amtechlive.com
