What is FieldData Pro?

FieldData Pro (FDP) is a data management system optimized to manage facilities operating data.

A typical facility uses a number of computerized systems to manage their operations:
  • CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management System) to manage assets and maintenance resources
  • SCADA or BAS Systems to monitor and control building and process systems
  • Accounting systems to issue purchase orders, track expenses and manage inventory
  • Timekeeping software to manage employee labor costs
  • EHS software to manage compliance with environmental, health and safety regulations
Many facilities that have spent thousands, if not millions, of dollars on these systems still rely on clipboards and pencils for the collection of critical data . They then use Excel spreadsheets to manage this data.

What kind of data are we talking about? Look around your facility and see what kind of data is being written on a log sheet attached to a clipboard. Many times it includes:
  • Emergency generator test information
  • HVAC water treatment test data
  • Hazardous Waste Tank Inspections (RCRA)
  • Fume Hood Exhaust Readings
FDP was created to eliminate the work associated with managing this data. By using our mobile application FDPMobile on durable handheld computers (the barcode scanner type devices the Pepsi guy uses to track the inventory he delivers to the convenience store), data is captured efficiently. When the device connects to the Internet this data automatically uploads to our web application, FDP Plant, where it can be reviewed, analyzed and stored securely.

Managing this data no longer involves flipping through grease stain log sheets and keying large amounts of data into spreadsheets. The data is touched once when entered into FDPMobile and is now available for use in a variety of ways by colleagues around the world.

  1. Thank you for the post. I recently started using Timekeeping software for my company and could not be happier with my choice.

  2. Thanks for the post, I've been looking for more information on a CMMS system that would be right for my company.
