Tradtional paper based log books are used extensively throughout various industries, with organisations moving into the electronic age, millions of excel spreadsheets were developed to record the information electronically.
However the use of these types of log books do have their drawbacks when it comes to identifying which piece of equipment is due for service, inspection, retirement or replacement at all times without someone having to seach a paper based log book for the relevant entry.
Paper log books can be scattered far and wide throughout your facility and having all your logbooks in one location improves data flow and allows real time data available to employees when they need it most.
Paper log books are inherently insecure, entries can be forged and/or removed or even entire logbooks destroyed. Having all your logbooks stored in a centralised web-based databased allows only access to the correct people. Data is automatically time stamped and is securely backed up and held off-site to cover all eventualities.
Paper log books allow too much scope for poor handwriting and the addition of entries in a non-consistent manner. With E-Log handwriting is no longer an issue.
