Noonan ECAT user

One system that can be used to answer a wide variety of our client's needs. Very attentive support function who have assisted in adapting the system to accommodate new requirements.

Pros

The basic system is easily adaptable to multiple uses. Can be used as a compliance tool as well as monitoring standards.

Cons

Reports don't download conveniently into Excel. Reports with wider detail of information about audit results which could be filtered and manipulated in Excel would be more helpful than the limited range of reports available.

Hi Richard, thank you for your review. As you know over the years of using ECAT, we put a lot of emphasis in supporting our clients and using our knowledge to come up with solutions which work for them, so I am delighted to hear of your positive experiences. As you will also know we are consistently looking for areas to improve which is why users are now able to export reports into a Word document as well as PDF and Excel. However, we do understand that some of our reports are not the most `excel friendly¿ but we do hope that users are able to access the desired information through our other range of reports. Happy to reach out and discuss this further. Thank you again for your kind words.

Uncomplicated, convenient and delivers results!

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.

Ecat Review

Overall my experience of Ecat is good. Useful app for identifying upcoming maintenance for buildings.

Pros

Ease of use and not having to be online to complete a survey, only have to be online to submit.

Cons

I carried out maintenance surveys on building with Ecat and sometimes the same observation might appear in a number of locations in a building but you can only enter one observation under a given heading and one photo.

Hi Larry, firstly we would like to thank for you putting some time aside to write a review on ECAT. It is very appreciated. It¿s great to see you are finding using the ECAT off-line beneficially while out on the road (and sometimes in the middle of a field) where there is no internet connection. Regarding your issue of not being able to capture more observations, we would be happy to arrange a quick call to show you how to do this. We have also heard several users requiring the use of more photos which is why we will soon be expanding this to 3 photos per observation. I hope this will be of benefit to you. Thanks again for your feedback and I hope we can build upon the good ground we covered in 2018!

Fast, effective and to the point. The ECAT team understood what we needed and delivered in days

Information access, efficiency, instant information distribution, Altitude reporting, Trending analytics, root cause identification, trace-ability,

Pros

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

The software and the team are both excellent.

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.)

Testimonial

Beaumont Hospital have been using Ecat since 2013 Since commencment using the platform created by Ecat for the Hygiene Services within Beaumont the developers have created a bespoke auditing system to suit the requirements of the end users.

Pros

The layout and format is very user friendly and provides not only written documented evidence but also picture evidence that identifies appropriate and inappropriate performance that is used for training purposes within the hospital for key stakeholders ie Nursing , Health Care Assistants and cleaning staff.

Cons

There is nothing to dislike about the software.

All software should work as well as this!

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.
