What is CertMax?

Lifting equipment has to be carefully managed so that it is always fit for service.  Generally speaking lifting gear requires inspection at different times and can be across multiple sites.  If certificates and reports are kept in printed format they quickly become a formidable task, especially if a products history needs to be analysed. LOLER regulations places responsibility on the management of lifting equipment by the company which uses them.  

CertMax is a revolutionary software system for the complete management of lifting gear certification. Accessible via the internet, with wireless tagging of products on-site, customers can produce reports and certificates in real time.  The system takes the hassle out of managing inspection & certification of products.  It reduces costs, and ensures that safety is maintained.
