TradeMaster Announces Technology Partnership with FirePrograms™ for Easy Interface with MobileEyes™ Fire Inspection Software
Partnership helps eliminate work redundancies for fire departments.
TROY, Mich. (December 11, 2006) When faced with limited resources, fire departments often seek to eliminate any unnecessary paperwork and administrative functions to save valuable time.
TradeMaster, supplier of MobileEyes™ fire inspection software, and FirePrograms Software, a provider of administrative and risk management record management systems, recently teamed up to help fire departments eliminate redundancy.
We simply created an export function that could deliver data collected through our MobileEyes™ fire inspection program to customers’ record management systems,” said Tom Gorman, vice president of TradeMaster. “Likewise, FirePrograms created an import function to download data to their programs and eliminate re-keying of information.”
The first fire inspection team to install and experience the benefits of the interface between MobileEyes™ and FirePrograms™ was that of Fire Marshal Derrick Clouston in Lee County, North Carolina. With the new interface, they are able to easily integrate the information for mapping, maintaining incident reports and tracking inspections.
“We were prompted to build the import function as a result of requests from a number of our customers who are using MobileEyes™,” said Gary Ewers, president of FirePrograms Software. “It’s an option that enhances the value of the services and programs we provide.”
Using the tablet- and web-based MobileEyes™ software, fire inspectors are able to quickly and easily automate time consuming manual tasks such as looking up fire codes, writing reports, and keying or re-keying inspection reports into a data base.
The technology partnership with FirePrograms is one of several that we’re working on to help fire departments concentrate on what they do best—prevent fires and save lives,” added Gorman.
