Alpha Tracker - did you know...? #3 - importing Excel data

One of our fundamental principles is that Alpha Tracker is an open asbestos system - we consider that the data and documents belong to our asbestos consultancy clients and we try to make the system as flexible as possible in terms of importing and exporting information.

Did you know that you can import all of the following from Excel spreadsheets into Alpha Tracker?

  • projects - so you can prepare lists of surveys (for example, of housing stock) and create projects without any further admin
  • sites - import lists from clients including addresses and contact details
  • surveys - add surveys undertaken by other surveying consultancies
  • surveyed items - great for re-inspections or for importing asbestos information from other systems.
You don't even need to prepare your own import templates as you can download a blank sheet with the correct headings direct from the system. Easy as that!
