Amtech goes mobile with FastTest for iPad

Amtech, the market-leading software developer for the UK Building Services Industry, has launched FastTest for iPad, included with all purchases of FastTest 2013 – stand-alone or as part of an Amtech Office suite.

Designed for use with iPad and iPad Mini, it makes the onsite production of Inspection & Testing certificates easier and quicker. As the test results are collected, the data is simply entered into the App on the iPad. Then, when the work is complete, all of the data is synchronised to Amtech’s cloud servers for secure storage.

Back in the office, the data from the cloud storage is simply imported to FastTest on the main computer and the certificates can then be produced for distribution to customers by email or post. The result is that productivity on site is maximised and the paperwork is quickly completed on return to the office. FastTest for iPad also facilitates the management of multiple engineers on site.

FastTest for iPad makes it easy to create and manage new certificates, or to navigate through existing certificates on the iPad. When carrying out re-tests, the previous certificate can simply be downloaded so that all of the core information is already in place to save even more time.

The status of each report is shown with a single tap and data is easily accessed and entered using a combination of simple drop-downs and the on-screen keyboard. Notes can be added at any time.

Amtech Sales Director, Nick Harper commented: “FastTest for iPad has been developed in conjunction with FastTest users, ensuring that it adds value to their day-to-day Inspection & Testing activities. In fact, this is just the first of a number of new developments that will help our customers maximise their productivity through the use of mobile technologies.”

Amtech has also launched a LinkedIn discussion group for FastTest users, facilitating feedback that will help to continually develop the product and help users make the transition to mobile platforms.
