REDMOND, WA—Dynamic Systems, Inc., a Redmond, WA, software developer specializing in data collection applications, has launched a low cost equipment and maintenance manager software for fire, HAZMAT, 9-1-1 organizations, search and rescue, and other mission critical agencies.

Equipment Manager is targeted at agencies which need to track service due on equipment, and save time tracking down tools and gear. The software tells you who has it, where it is and when it is due back.

The program reports when an inspection, repair or cleaning is due on items such as parts, laptops, hoses, pagers, radios, pagers and terminals. It is easy to check equipment in and out for each apparatus, and between stations. You can also track inspections of buildings, extinguishers, hydro testing, hose inventory, repairs, SCUBA gear, maintenance of the station, training records and maintenance on vehicles and equipment (NFPA 1851). The inventory module tracks consumable supplies as well. "Equipment Manager will improve performance and is an affordable program for even those with a few employees," said Bill Allen, process control consultant.

Equipment Manager requires less than a minute to check an item in and out, and cuts hours off equipment checks and inspections. "Loss of time and malfunctioning gear can be a major overhead cost for departments. Our customers see a typical payback from Equipment Manager within three to four months," said Alison Falco, president of Dynamic Systems.
