Psion Teklogix, N4 Systems Partner to Provide Real-Time Safety Solutions

Mississauga, Ontario-based Psion Teklogix, a global provider of wireless computing solutions, and Toronto, Ontario-based N4 Systems, a provider of real-time safety compliance and inspection management solutions, recently announced a partnership to service the safety compliance and electronic inspection markets.

Integrating N4 Systems' Field ID software with Psion Teklogix' Workabout Pro and Ikn PDA rugged mobile devices, the companies offer customers accurate and efficient paperless field inspection and real-time safety compliance solutions.

The Psion Teklogix and N4 Systems offering allows users to electronically record and automatically create inspection reports in the field to determine the status of their safety compliance in real-time. N4 Systems' Field ID system uses multiple technologies to create a fully integrated enterprise application. The system includes radio frequency identification (RFID) for asset identification and Psion Teklogix' rugged handheld computers with 3G WWAN, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity as well as an integrated camera option. The application also features highly secure data management, distribution and storage, remote system management and support, and optimized high speed internet integration.

Hundreds of mining, oil and gas, automotive and utilities sites in North America, including the Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau are using the N4 Systems and Psion Teklogix solution. With increasing government requirements for ongoing inspections, cranes have emerged as a new market. Crane inspections involve hundreds of different parts unique to the individual piece of equipment, and the difficulty of determining which inspection criteria matches a particular piece of equipment is substantial. Mobile data collection in the field on a handheld device improves the efficiency, management and reporting for safety compliance.

"Being able to wirelessly collect, analyze and report on critical inspection data at 'the point of work' can dramatically improve safety and compliance,” said Mike Jachimiec, vice president of channel sales at Psion Teklogix. "Our partnership with a leading software provider for safety and inspections, N4 Systems, brings a complete and targeted solution to this growing market.”

"Field ID is a shift in the way companies conduct inspections and manage safety compliance,” said Somen Mondal, president and CEO of N4 Systems. “By eliminating the problems of paper-based inspections, our solution not only saves time and money, it saves lives. Mobile computers are a huge part of our solution, and we are pleased to work with Psion Teklogix, a leader in mobile computing, to provide a total solution to our customers. The ruggedness and ability for Psion Teklogix' products to work in the field greatly complements the users of Field ID and the markets we serve.”
