BAT Database - Backflow Records for the Tester

About The Program:

BAT Database was designed and developed for BATs ("Just For BATs"). The components of the database are structured to assist the Backflow Assembly Tester in completing his or her document preparation in the most expeditious manner possible.

- Multiple BAT support - information including signatures, BAT certifications, test kit calibration dates and other required BAT information is captured for imbedding in the backflow test reports. This allows the same BAT Database to be shared by a number of testers.

- Intuitive data entry forms for customer, assembly, and test results data. Auto-complete fields, smart pick list fields, form and field validations and help files improve the speed and quality of the data entry process. An ever present "Icon Ribbon" provides convenient access to all of the main features of the system.

- Backflow Assembly Test Reports - test reports are uniquely created based on a specification in the water district form. Peliminary reports may be printed, and completed reports may be printed and/or e-mailed (PDF format with signature affixed).

- Schedule - all tests flow through the schedule and a summary of each test is displayed which indicates its current processing status. The schedule contains convenient hyperlinks for each test that provide links to the customer, assembly, and test data forms. Daily, weekly, or monthly test schedules may be printed from the Schedule.

- Test Tracker - when backflow tests are completed they are moved from the Schedule to the Test Tracker. Within the Test Tracker there are several printing and e-mailing options available. With the single click of a button a flexible e-mail generator segregates and distibutes PDF reports to all of the relative water purveyors.

- Invoicing - includes invoice printing, tax calculations, parts inventory interface, and invoice history. An invoices due report provides ageing and total amount due information.

- Inventory - includes forms for capturing the details of purchase and sale transactions.

- Annual Maintenance Program (AMP) - this is commonly known as a Tickler File. As the next scheduled test(s) nears for any customer enrolled in the AMP program a notification is placed in the AMP display. Based on the customer's preference they are notified by phone, e-mail, or automatically marked for placement into the testing schedule.

- Water District - this form provides for the entry of water purveyor contact information, e-mail addresses, fax phone numbers, and unique custom options. Also the annually required water purveyor documents may be tracked with this form.

  • Easy to use
  • Free to DOD users
  • Saves time and money

Reduce Your Data Entry Time and Cost

WaterTool eliminates the need for paper forms by allowing users to input data using a Personal Digital Assistant or Pocket PC, and periodically synchronize the data with a desktop- or server-housed database. This eliminates the time, cost, inefficiency, and inaccuracy often associated with paper-based data gathering.

Simplify Your Data Updates
