CheckedOK – our market-leading inspection monitoring system – is celebrating its 10th anniversary, having completed 18 million reports for almost 95,000 client firms since its inception.

Since 2009, the system has been used to check and record the status of 3,227,000 items of equipment and has established itself as the leading inspection system for the cranes and lifting industries in the UK and Ireland. It is now looking to extend its client base at home and abroad.

CheckedOK has 65 users in the British Isles with a global customer base extending to Spain, Germany, Switzerland and Australia. The system records results of inspections from engineers working remotely. The data is entered through hand-held devices such as phones and tablets and is immediately sent to a secure hosted database. Reports and certification are then available to users online via a web browser. It also assists users to meet LOLER and PUWER industry regulations.

CheckedOK was initially designed in response to the challenges faced by one of Ireland’s leading manufacturer of custom made solutions for materials handling, lifting gear and construction plant. The firm still uses the system today. 

CoreRFID technical sales director Richard Harrison comments: ‘CheckedOK’s success is due to it speeding-up the inspection process, especially for firms which have switched from paper-based systems, while improving accuracy and customer service.

‘While CheckedOK is an off the shelf system, it is always tailored to meet every users’ specific needs such as calculating labour, the cost of materials and charge out rates for invoicing. When regulatory and operational requirements change, the system is adapted to the new situation.’

Technical director Munzi Ali comments: ‘Our future work will be to evolve the system to give users even more flexibility and enable them to take advantage of the latest mobile technology.’
