Track certification jobs on your phone

Dashboards in LinkWare™ Live provides instant insight on the progress of your certification job on your smart phone or any browser enabled device. This ensures your certification jobs and projects are completed on time.

The ability to track multiple jobs simultaneously also improves scheduling and resource allocation to ensure maximum productivity from technicians as well as instruments. Customization of the dashboard enables you to group multiple projects to ensure it matches the way you do business. The ability to archive projects ensures only the relevant data is displayed on the dashboard.

Upload test results from remote sites

Test Results Management is made easy with LinkWare Live. This means that you spend less time on non-value added tasks and more time on tasks that matter and helps you complete the job faster, obtain system acceptance quicker and thus get paid faster.

The Versiv testers directly integrate with LinkWare Live allowing test results to be uploaded to www.linkwarelive.com. Once the results are stored remotely you can view them on any internet enabled smart device with a browser anywhere and at any time.

 

Consolidate test results for large projects

Often you have to use multiple testers for a job and sometimes these testers are on multiple sites. Collecting and consolidating data from each can be time consuming. Now with LinkWare Live data from all those different testers on different sites can effortlessly be consolidated into a single project. This also ensures that you get all the data and avoid retesting due to missing results.

Create ProjX™ test setups and cable IDs in the browser

Create ProjX test setups and cable IDs with browser based ease and save them in LinkWare Live. Once saved they can then be download to any remote tester. Avoid unnecessary travel to the jobsite or keep the tester in the field as the tester can now be setup remotely.

Alternatively, ProjX setups can be created or updated on a tester and then uploaded to LinkWare Live for distribution to other testers.

Copper test setups and fiber test setups can be created from the browser. The options available on the browser are the same as those while creating the test setup on the tester. But it's faster to create the ProjX setup on the browser as the number of screens needed has been reduced to just 1.

Both sequential and custom ID lists can be created from the browser ensuring cable IDs are generated quickly as defined in the job specification. Cable IDs can also be created in the browser by importing Microsoft Excel or CSV files.

Get notified about incorrect test limits and cable IDs

LinkWare Live notifies you when any test results with incorrect test limits or cable IDs are uploaded.

Along with the notification LinkWare Live also provides the capability to accept or reject these test results.

Always ensure your tests are following the specification required for the certification job. You can now catch these errors early on in the project and rectify any of these errors quickly eliminating additional truckrolls to redo testing.

In cases when corrections made in the field to test limits and cable IDs are valid, LinkWare Live provides a one click interface to add these changes and modify the ProjX setup. The corrected test setup can then be used to update all other units.

Asset Management*

LinkWare Live asset management provides a single intuitive way to monitor testers in the field. Any user with the permission to view asset information can quickly identify the last used location of the tester and also get information on who is using the tester.

LinkWare Live also informs you 60 days in advance if any tester needs to be calibrated. It also provides notification on the firmware version that is running on the testers in the field. Testers that need to be updated can be updated remotely ensuring that tests are performed to the latest test limits.

LinkWare Live Asset Management dramatically reduces the amount of time spent in locating and managing testers in the field and ensures your team is always ready for the job.
