Taking the heavy lift out of reporting with CheckedOK


Professional Lifting Services (PLS), which designs, manufactures, services and repairs heavy lifting equipment, will be using our industry leading automated RFID reporting system CheckedOK.

CheckedOK will replace PLS’ manual paper-based system. Tailored to PLS’ needs, the system will have industry first capabilities such as reporting functions for crack tests in crane hooks.

CheckedOK works by recording inspection reports from engineers working remotely onsite. The data is entered through tablets and is immediately sent to a secure hosted database. Reports, including LOLER certification, are then almost immediately available to users via a web browser.

CheckedOK is the market leading RFID inspection system for the cranes and lifting industries in the UK and Ireland. Since its launch in 2009, it has gone through a series of improvements to meet regulatory and operational changes facing clients. It has to date, generated reports and certification documents for over 100,000 firms its clients service.

With more than 30 years’ experience in the lifting industry, PLS has a 45 strong team, which includes 24 site engineers. Its nationwide list of client includes Sheffield Forgemasters, British Steel and Uniper.

Richard Padgett and Scott Spencer, the Directors for PLS say: ‘Our clients often have thousands of items which must be inspected, and their condition accurately recorded. It’s an essential job, but it’s time intensive. CheckedOK will make short work of that chore and free up valuable time for our engineers to engage in higher-level tasks for clients.’

CoreRFID’s technical director Munzi Ali says: ‘PLS is highly reputable company based  in the heart of Sheffield where lifting is an important service in the high-quality steel and other heavy industries. Its switch to CheckedOK shows the value Richard and his colleagues see in automating critical processes.’
