When you’re in a technical industry, it’s vital that all of your equipment is accurate and calibrated properly. Here at GageList, we think it’s important to take a closer look at how to choose the best calibration management software for your company. Luckily, it isn’t that difficult to do if you remember a few basic points. The best programs will stand out due to the features and functions they offer. Here are some key things to consider to help you choose the right software.
- Most of today’s programs have to be installed on your in-house systems but there are other options. Instead, look for one that runs out of a web browser. This makes it easier to setup, reduces investment and maintenance costs, and allows you to access the system from anywhere you are – not just specific computers.
- Be sure the program supports compliance for the right industry standards. Support compliance to industry standards like ISO 9001 or AS 9100 is important since it helps make it easier for you to stay on the right side of all of these standards.
- Also make sure your data will be secure. Daily backups, the ability to import and export data, and other features should be present to help make it easier to get the peace of mind you need when calibrating your systems. Knowing your data is safe is incredibly valuable, and well worth taking the time to do.
- You’ll also want to check into technical support for your software. Hopefully you’ll never need to use it, but if an issue or a question arises it’s good to be able to get fast, reliable help whenever you require it without having to struggle just to speak to someone who can assist you.
There are plenty of options out there, but keeping the points above in mind should make it much easier to select the calibration management software for your company. We meet all the criteria and then some, and are ready to help you see the difference that a good automation program can make in your calibration efforts.
