    Pros

    Audits are easy to perform and easily customized. The dashboard provides an easy over view of audits performed.

    Cons

    Not much, perhaps how the reports appear when downloaded to Excel (takes extra steps to data mine due to merged rows/columns.)

    Quick, easy, flexible tool to help me do my job!

    Pros

    There are key areas of safety compliance I need to check routinely as I visit an operation. This product allows me to quickly evaluate the level of compliance and communicate my findings. It's easy to use on a mobile device, and we can adjust the audit forms quickly as we identify additional needs, or operational changes. Quick, simple method to document a compliance review.

    Cons

    We are still exploring the capabilities of this product but have yet to find an issue that could not be resolved.

    ECAT provides excellent flexibility in audit development and rapid deployment of a user-friendly system

    Pros

    ECAT offer a user friendly app that works across mobile platforms. The system is very easy to configure and deploy.

    Cons

    We found that the scheduling did not fully satisfy the most complex examples we come across, however ECAT worked very closely with us to quickly address these needs.

    Cost savings and time savings. Centrally as mobilisation costs are low, unit based savings from convenient auditing and fast reporting.

    Pros

    The convenience of a web based app that works on multiple devices across various operating systems. Ease of use for the end user, which means on-site training isn't required. Ability to personalize the system to cater for very specific contractual needs. Fast response rate provided by customer support team.

    Cons

    Overall the reporting suite is very good, but due to the complexity of our contracts, we required extensive reporting capabilities. This is,t necessarily a negative as we have been able to work together with the team to build suitable reports.

    It introduced an operations mechanic for the first time enabling area/ regional management to monitor operational standards and consistency remotely.

    Pros

    Was able to customise the software according to the needs of individual operational requirements. Enables the measurement of consistent operational standards with an instant clear feedback mechanism.

    Cons

    Need to consider the nature of the information and Dashboard in order to ensure the data is easily readable on portable devices "in the field".

    All my heath & safety, hygiene, fire checks and much more in the one place. No more chasing paper and people around the office. Ease of access to my compliance reports and the ability to forward them as needed.

    Pros

    The Bulk Upload tool is a dream. I could get entire site live in a matter of minutes once I had collected the site data. The mobile app needs no training so the roll out was effortless. The support team really know their stuff and we had a customer success manager assigned to us that really got to know how we work.

    Cons

    ECAT is not big on Templates but, you can set up any audit you want once you have it yourself. Doesn't have an inbuilt help desk.

    It is very intuitive and simple to use. No real training required for the users. Easy and accurate configuration capabilities. Handles our most complex audits down to our simplest check lists. The support turnaround time is spectacular.

    Cons

    Could do with one or two more modules although I am told they are in the pipeline. Not as strong on templates
