It is no secret that the fire-safety industry is busier and more important than ever before. To keep up, many professionals have turned from the traditional method of pen and clipboard to software packages for conducting and managing compliance auditing. This has given these individuals and companies an advantage by allowing software to do a lot of the hard work for them, reducing stress in a critical industry where, literally, life-saving decisions are made every day.
However, isn’t it frustrating when it doesn’t work properly?
GoPAD is a modern fire-risk assessment software suite that has been built from the ground up by active fire-risk assessors, chartered fire engineers and a user-experience team to ensure that it is the best and most reliable solution for completing fire-risk assessments. At an affordable price GoPAD removes a lot of the headaches of completing and managing those assessments.
The main objective of GoPAD is to help our users, whether an individual assessor, a large consultancy firm or in-house institution, have an intuitive and easy-to-use system that saves time and makes compliance auditing a painless task.
At our heart, we recognise that fire-safety companies are too busy and their work too important to be worrying about software that simply causes frustration and so we built a solution that works well beyond anything we’ve seen elsewhere.
One of our clients says: ‘GoPAD has totally transformed the way we conduct fire-risk assessments. It’s easy to use, and our customers are much more engaged now with the process as the reporting is very clear, with photographic evidence provided. It’s been a game changer.’
GoPAD has been rigorously tested and developed over 10 years of use, to ensure it is optimised for real world assessments, whilst ensuring that the resultant report is relevant, effective and well presented. It is fully compliant with all current standards in the UK (and can still be applied in other markets).
GoPAD consists of two parts: a mobile or tablet app for data collection and a web-based portal for report viewing, editing, data management and analysis. Because it doesn’t rely on any specialist software, GoPAD can be deployed in your organisation within minutes.
The app enables assessors to complete assessments accurately and efficiently, through the use of questions and answers, photos, QuickText and hundreds of built-in tasks. This ensures consistency across your portfolio and ensures a common structure throughout your assessment data.
No internet signal? The app can be used fully offline and then synced with the system once a connection has been restored.
The Web Portal is your back-office tool – a central location for all of your completed assessments. Your secure login will give you access to all of your assessments, and enable your team to view reports online, print PDF reports, QA newly completed assessments, send assessments back to assessors for editing or revision, produce reports on the number of completed assessments, and monitor and manage outstanding tasks.
A special feature of the GoPAD Portal allows you to share a digital version of your client’s completed reports and allow them to update their Action Plan in real time, adding photos and comments as evidence of completed work.
This has the benefit of making you look professional, reducing paper use and, when you are invited back for the next scheduled assessment, a fully up-to-date FRA that can be downloaded by your assessors and require relatively little effort to verify and update. After all, most of the form filling has already been completed in previous years.
For you, because our software is reliable and does all the hard work, we pride ourselves on being able to offer a more personalised experience and can offer customisation if needed.
