ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eData Collectors, Inc.’s (EDCI) based in Atlanta, GA easy to use, scalable and portable inspections data collection and compliance management system has enabled Fulton Co. increase quality assurance, proactive facilities management, safety, security, verification, validation, accountability, monitoring, tracking, workflow efficiencies, data analysis, electronic audit trail with time and attendance and communication with customized reporting; and reduce costs and risks for their Public Access Defribillation (PAD) Program.
Management wanted a system that required no electricity, writing, typing, faxing, scanning, daily charging, maintenance, minimal to no staff training or installation.

A cost effective “Green” technology Solution for Inspections Management and Compliance
Building Management needed a paperless system simple to use and implement, reliable, economical, yet, robust (hardware & software) that allowed field staff to capture and digitize data, at the point-of-service, to automatically create an electronic record of information collected such as date, time, who, location, asset, what, conditions observations, tasks performed. The goal was to reduce labor costs associated with manual entry errors and omissions, use of paper forms, fuel consumption, penalties, risks and equipment down time.
Fulton County’s Public Access Defribillation (PAD) Program of AED/Medical Kit used in cases of life threatening cardiac arrhythmias has gained a significant return on the investment reducing labor and fuel costs, enhancing time management and accountability by 50%. Production volume also increased by capturing daily inspections data of 136 Automated External Defribillators (PAD) in (88) City of Atlanta area Buildings with a program range of 55 mile radius.
According to Fulton County’s Evacuation Coordinator the mobile staff is “very happy” with EDCI’s eData Catcher™ System's ease of use and reliability. The County is extremely pleased with the results and plans for the Facilities and Transportation Services Department to expand their Maintenance and Reliability Program Strategy by using the eData Catcher System to collect building and assets inspections data (i.e. fire extinguishers, HV/AC, janitorial, guard tour, fleet and utilities inspections to ascertain quality control and property management compliance).
