Aston Dane partners Terrington

01 February 2007

Terrington Data Management has joined forces with Aston Dance Plc in a bid to boost plant safety.

Under the recent partnership Terrington and Aston Dane aim to create a new generation of software-based data capture and plant inspection products.

IndEX, designed to facilitate the scheduling and performance of ATEX 137 inspections and created by Terrington, was pinpointed by Aston Dane as the right product to add flexibility to data capture. Furthermore Terrington was considered to have the approach and services to make a good software provider.

A mobile, secure and scalable system, IndEX creates paperless ATEX 137 inspections for electrical equipment through a complete set of one-touch data entry forms for all explosion protection types, schedules, audit and reporting functions. It operates in real-time as captured data is downloaded instantly to a computer, eliminating the time lapse and potential for errors, associated with copying written records.

Shane Carter, director of Aston Dane, said: “Most software developers aim to create generic products but Terrington combines this with a dynamic, enterprising outlook and was happy to create the additional functionalities we required.”

He continued: “Now, as well as supplying IndEX, our partnership will combine our broad knowledge of the end user market with Terrington’s considerable software development and data capture expertise to facilitate the development of new software products.”

Mark Williams, managing director of Terrington, added: “IndEX and its umbrella system, Transform, are already widely recognised as highly successful products that are proven in a range of regulated environments to work and deliver real operational savings.”

“We look forward to working with Aston Dane plc on this and other possible software development projects to enhance plant hazardous area inspections, maintenance and health and safety.”

Terrington has now incorporated Aston Dane’s suggested modifications to enable the product to be targeted to a wider range of potential users.
