RAT™ is a software application developed and used by IRIA to assist our highly trained staff in the collection and storage of racking audit data. The RAT™ system is currently in use with a number of major clients around the world.
The solution is based upon the Windows Mobile Computing platform and has been developed specifically for the purpose of completing racking audits in a range of facilities including retail and commercial operations.
Specifically, the solution has a number of key elements. These include; a racking manufacturers parts list, a user interface, a risk framework and a synchronisation element. All of these components combine to form RAT™. This provides a succinct and tried audit service capable of providing a unique and timely reporting methodology.
RAT™ is continually evolving. Additional reporting functionality has been added to allow for full web based querying of the SQL database by registered users. This will allow users to create their own reports based upon the data that belongs to their company. Additionally the system is being further developed to bolster the asset management component. These requirements are based upon customer requests and continual market investigation.
