Welcome Lancashire County Scientific Services to the Alpha Tracker family!

Another Alpha Tracker asbestos consultancy is live.  This time it is Lancashire County Scientific Services!

Kim has spent the day training the asbestos surveyors and administrators

Lancashire County Scientific Services will be using asbestos software Alpha Tracker to survey buildings across the county for asbestos, analysing samples and producing asbestos reports for their internal and external customers.

Using a variety of handheld devices, asbestos surveyors will be capturing site data, taking photos and updating plans electronically, and then sending this over mobile data or WiFi - all with one click!  Once asbestos samples are analysed, reports will be produced automatically to match the current Lancashire County formats.  All asbestos reports in Alpha Tracker are created from custom templates to ensure that the output is perfect.

Can we help your asbestos consultancy to improve efficiency and the service you provide to your clients?  Get in touch!  We have demo slots available in May, and software trials are also available.  If you are switching from competitor systems, we can also offer healthy discounts during 2024.

There's an update to our Alpha Tracker Mobile app in the Google & Apple app stores

Jack has published an update to our Alpha Tracker Mobile app into the Google & Apple app stores.

Alpha Tracker Mobile in the app stores

The new version has several useability improvements for users of our Forms and Water Hygiene features, including:

  • better display of the section name (for forms broken into multiple sections)
  • improved display of the project/job, site and type of form
  • the section/question is always displayed when responding to Water Hygiene questions.
These changes all came from suggestions from our users so do get in touch if you have other ideas for improvements!
