Website supports cylinder tracking
UK: A-Gas has launched a new website dedicated to Gas-Trak Online (GTO), its F-gas reporting and cylinder-tracking app.
The new website is there to support users of its 24/7 F-gas reporting and cylinder management solution. It allows engineers to sign on to their GTO account and provides extensive support and information on the enhanced range of features available to manage refrigerant and cylinder use.
GTO is free to download on smartphones and tablets and offers many different features for the contractor. The most recent addition to the software is cylinder fleet manager. Tracking a fleet of cylinders can be a time-consuming and complex task but storing data in GTO is said to make cylinder management easy and is an ideal way of controlling rental costs. With the ability to scan barcodes, GTO can help reduce cylinder number errors.
Describing the new website. A-Gas International group brand and marketing manager Hayley Russell said: “Its innovative features help engineers comply with current F-Gas regulations and track their cylinder fleet easily and effectively.
“There is help from a dedicated GTO support team and access to the extensive range of features and benefits which accompany the GTO package. The website also offers video tutorials and answers the most frequently asked questions. It has everything you need to make managing refrigerant use and cylinder tracking F-Gas compliant.”
GTO offers cost-efficient, real-time reporting and has performance indicators via a dashboard which give engineers the opportunity to spot problem sites as and when they arise. Jobs can also be allocated to engineers and there is a secure and unique log in.
The new GTO website is at www.gastrakonline.com
