  • Kelly R. - I am looking for a user friendly software package that will let me list all of my equipment by the department using it, track repair history, and schedule regular maintenance. Will this program do that?
  • Answer - EMC is a servicing and servicing history program. It keeps an automatically updated due list of all the services that are due on your equipment and allows you to print the list whenever you want the services done. As you update the hours, date of service, or miles on the equipment when services were done, the list is re-updated with any services that have become due as a result of the new data. Scheduling is accomplished by the service interval as set for each piece of equipment. The duelist and the print out that is available allows you to adjust your scheduling (daily, weekly, etc). All the services that have been done are kept on file and can be sorted and viewed or printed out to see the complete history of servicing on your equipment. The equipment list has a category field which will allow you to separate your equipment list by departments and view each department independently of the others. There are memo fields for entry of problems and their remedy for each service and history of services where you can type in the costs involved. Other items, it keeps track of, are the repair problems you have encountered and any warranties on your equipment. Importantly there is also a warning system that will automatically display a red colored icon next to the service entry of any equipment that has consumables and is added to the consumprion warning list that has used more than a specified amount of a product used to add to a service.
