ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Atlanta-based BuildingReports will unveil the latest addition to its ScanSeries® suite of mobile applications for Android™ and iOS®. After security, the expansion represents only the second time that the industry leader in fire and life safety compliance reporting has expanded to provide solutions for other facility service functions.
The new HVACScan™ application and software-as-a-service solution offers heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration service providers a competitive advantage in securing new contracts and generating more recurring revenue. Through a simple barcoding point-and-scan process, HVAC technicians can quickly and easily provide verifiable electronic documentation for commercial and industrial systems and devices. The solution includes features and functionality specific to both mechanical and electrical HVAC contractors.
“Because all service reporting, warranty and recall information, photographic documentation, and maintenance detail is available online instead of within a binder or filing cabinet, facility management companies and professionals have immediate access — 24/7 — to all service and system records,” said Jason Kronz, BuildingReports’ president and chief technology officer.
In addition to having many of the same features and benefits as other popular ScanSeries® applications, Kronz announced the addition of new features based on the feedback service companies contributed during the design phase.
“HVACScan’s interactive FloorPlan feature even allows service companies to diagram and plot the location of all connected devices in a facility’s system, creating a more efficient and value-added service delivery model. This means third-party service technicians and facility maintenance professionals can easily locate a specific device in the event of a failure or scheduled service,” said Kronz.
“We’ve also included an advanced parent-child relationship for equipment comprised of multiple individual devices. This feature provides in-depth reporting on all devices that make-up a HVAC system.”
BuildingReports' employees and executives will be demonstrating the new solution at the 2017 AHR EXPO® at the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 30 to February 1, 2017. The solution will be accepting a limited number of beta users. Once the beta period is complete, the software will be licensed as either a stand-alone solution or as part of the larger ScanSeries® suite of applications for fire alarm and signaling, water-based fire sprinklers, fire suppression, life safety and security systems.
