Data Collection

equation's® Data Collection Module provides a data base to enter, record, report, and analyze any data or create any electronic form important to your management system.

Use the Data Collection system to collect, store, and analyze any data.
Enormously flexible, the Data Collection module allows you to build electronic forms for any purpose.
Create eForms with a variety of types of data: text, numbers, dates, drop down menus, user names/lists, formulas, regions, company divisions, etc.
Specific topics or folders can be created to house groups of forms such as equipment maintenance, employee training, traceability, calibration, supplier performance, impacts, etc.
Schedule frequencies of use such as inspection dates, audits, quarterly, annually, weekly, etc.
Photographs/videos supportive documentation can be attached to any form.
Generate custom reports to analyze your data on line, real time updates to graphs, spreadsheets, etc.
Create a “Dashboard” of graphs of key performance indicators providing real time updates of current performance.
Provide “Heatmap” to compare actual performance against target (green), minimal acceptance (yellow) and unacceptable (red).

Perhaps for the first time, your management team can have real time updates on performance and “at a glance” graphs/charts and a dashboard on today's efforts. Drive supplier performance dramatically upward with metrics that demonstrate their performance.
