KEWPAT Pro - Download and Import Features
Below you will find a quick overview of some of the main features found in KEWPAT Pro
The KEWPAT Pro software will currently download and/or Import Data (where Supported) from the following PAT Testers;
Kewtech KT77 (SSS download format supported), KT75, KT74
Robin SmartPat 5000, 5500
Manual Entry of Test data also supported as well as the ability to record Microwave Leakage and RCD test results.
Data from any of the above PAT Testers can be merged into the same database.
Need support for other PAT Testers?
Support for additional PAT Testers can be gained by upgrading to SimplyPats Version 6, where support for over 38 downloading PAT Testers exists, please contact support for further information.
Manual Entry of Test Data
The detailed Manual Entry screen gives you the option of entering asset information and test results straight from the PC. Features such as predictive text and Quick Select Test Limits make data entry more accurate and less time consuming.
Appliance Description, Location and Site Abbreviations
If you PAT Tester has a method of entering text, you can choose to use the full word or abbreviations to enter certain data, these can then be automatically replaced with the long description in SimplyPats. Abbreviations of up to four characters can be used while adding a space will allow you to enter multiple descriptions such as Make followed by Appliance Description for instance.
Manage your PAT Data how you want; maintain one data file or maintain separate Data Files, split, merge, import and update data or save selected data to another Data File.
Store your Data Files on a Server or location of your choice, in one folder or in separate folders by Customer, Date or Year for example.
Maintain one Master File for your in-house testing or customer that contains only the latest Data by using the Import and Update feature to overwrite the test data with current data. Alternatively, maintain historic Test Data by archiving the old data.
Multiple Sites in the same Data File can be quickly be exported to individual Data Files, ideal if you have downloaded data for multiple customers or sites from the PAT.
Data files can be exported from the Main Screen in CSV (Excel) and MDB (Access) Formats. Certain Data can also be exported by dragging and dropping into other software that supports OLE such as Word or Excel.
Group, Sort and Find Data
Data can easily be sorted by clicking on any of the column headers while the Grouping feature allows you to arrange data into expandable and collapsible groups. Both of these features present users with flexible viewing options but also make editing features such as Bulk Replace Selected much easier to use.
If you are looking for a particular appliance, you can of course use the Find Feature by entering its Appliance Id or Description.
Editing Data, Bulk Replace and Bulk Replace of Selected Records
Most of the data on the main screen can be edited by simply clicking in the relevant field, however if you want to make changes to data on a large scale the Bulk Replace feature is there to make the job easier. Bulk Replace will change X to Y within the current data file, while Bulk Replace Selected will only change X to Y for those records currently selected. In certain circumstances both of these options can save huge amounts of time.
Test Reports and Electronic Export Options
Common Reports such as the Appliance Register, Pass/Fail Report and Certificate of Testing provide enough detail for most users requirements, however you also have the option to produce more detailed Testing Reports together with a Folder Cover if needed.
User definable colour schemes help to give your Test reports a unique look. These can quickly be matched to your company colours and look very professional when matched to your company logo if used.
As well as displaying your logo, you can also include your Digital Signature on some of the Test Reports or leave the space blank to sign by hand.
All Test Reports can be exported in the following formats; PDF (Adobe Reader), MS Word, MS Excel, HTML, Text or Tiff.
Adding commonly used Reports to the Print Sequence feature will give you access to one button printing and even the option to export each Report as a separate PDF or merge all Reports into the same PDF document, all this while printing each individual Report to a specified printer.
Standard Reports include;
Appliance Register by Site
Pass and Fail Report
Detailed Pass and Fail Report
Certificate of Electrical Safety Testing
Current Appliance Report
One Appliance Per Page Report
Microwave Leakage Report
Folder Cover (for Report pack)
Photos Report (if images have been imported)
Excel or CSV output
PAT Testing Labels (templates and supported label stock required)
Invoicing and generating a Receipt
Automatically generate invoices based on charge and repair codes entered into the PAT Tester at time of test (codes can also be added within the software). Invoices can be created as soon as the test data has been downloaded or imported into the software and show detailed information relating to the job.
Other options such as; Auto incrementing Invoice Numbers, Discount options, Multiple Price/Repair Schemes, Extra Charges, Invoicee Address, VAT/GST Rate, Save Invoice, Print Invoice, Enter Fixed Price and print a Receipt instead of Invoice if payment has been received.
As with the Reports, the Invoice or Receipt can be exported in the following formats; PDF (Adobe Reader), MS Word, MS Excel, HTML, Text or Tiff.
Retest and Managing Overdue Appliances
The Review Customers screen or Retest Calendar both offer a visual overview of Retest Dates and clicking on a date on the calendar allows you to open the data file for Appliances due on that date.
If you are using Microsoft Outlook (Outlook 2010 64 bit not currently supported) you can also send the Retest Dates along with other information to Outlook as an appointment.
A Retest report is also available and can be based on any of the standard Test Reports, simply enter a from/to Date Range to show all Appliances within the current data file that are due for Retest within that period.
If you want to produce a Report showing all Overdue Appliances in the current data file. Entering a figure relating to a number of days will show all current overdue Appliance as well as all those Appliances due to be classed as overdue within the range entered.
