We are going to be implementing the Chematix inspection module which can be used on any web-enabled device, including iPad.  Advantage is that it integrates with the inventory module so you know what chemicals should be there.  Haven’t started using it yet though so I can’t offer any useful comments.  We’ve been very pleased with the helpfulness & accessibility of the developers so far.

We have been using the Q5 system (networked version) for many years on Palm PDAs.  Our “customers” are impressed when they receive an audit report by e-mail just minutes after we leave their lab.  Feel free to call me with questions.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] automated audit system?

Our department is looking to start automating our inspections/audits and collect data in the field using ipads. I did a web demo for Q5 Systems & thought it was interesting
 (http://www.q5 Is anyone using it? Do you like it or not?

Is anyone else using a different automated system for inspections?
