Crane Bureau Helps Bring Electronic Inspections to Industry

The Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB) has partnered with N4 Systems, Toronto, Ontario, to bring electronic, paperless inspections to the crane industry. Orlando, Fla.-based CICB will work with N4 Systems to tailor Field ID, N4 Systems' flagship inspection and safety compliance system, for the crane industry.

“Crane inspections are typically performed using paper checklist inspection forms,” said Craig Epperson, president and CEO of CICB. “We have been looking for a way to significantly improve the crane inspection process and eliminate any reliance on paper. Field ID will allow us to introduce a revolutionary new way to conduct inspections. We are very excited to be working with N4 Systems in this venture.”

“CICB is the expert when it comes to crane inspections,” said Somen Mondal, president and CEO of N4 Systems. “Their history and proven track record in the crane industry is a testament to their expertise. Working jointly with CICB to introduce Field ID to the crane industry will allow us to gain the experience and knowledge that CICB has built over the decades to cater Field ID for crane inspections. We are truly excited to be working with CICB.”

N4 Systems will be jointly presenting Field ID with CICB at booth N2102 at ConExpo in March.

Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB) was founded in 1969 as the first independent agency accredited by the U.S.Department of Labor to provide third-party inspection and certification of equipment for the crane and lifting industry.
