BEACON periodically polls your GAGEtrak database for calibrations that are due, efficiently sends out email notices to calibration technicians and maintains a complete log of all email transactions.
BEACON runs at a user-defined start time and interval. At the scheduled time, BEACON retrieves the list of gages due for calibration from your GAGEtrak database and then inspects the information, distributing the gages into a separate sub-list for each specified technician or department (authorized person or person to whom a gage is issued).
Once BEACON has compiled a list for each technician, it begins the process of email notification. BEACON retrieves the technicians’ email addresses from your GAGEtrak database and sends each list to the appropriate person.
If a gage that is due for calibration is not assigned to a particular technician and hence is not included in any of the sub-lists, that gage can be added to every technician’s list using BEACON’s complete coverage options to ensure that no gage is forgotten.
GAGEtrak BEACON is an easy-to-use, flexible system that saves time and improves efficiency by ensuring that your technicians receive accurate calibration due email notices on time.
