Web Access

Want to provide your customers the ability to simply go to a website and download their reports ?


White Label Web Portal: More and more people expect to obtain their reports / data via the internet. With this in mind, you to can offer your customers their reports via a safe & secure website.


This is a white label service, in another words, the website has all your company logo on it, along with your contact details, not ours, we simply provide the service behind the scenes, the data is yours and no offer companies.


You don't need to worry about anything, just create account holders with user names and passwords, PasTags will take care of creating the data and uploading the reports automatically for you.  Their is a set up fee of £250 with a yearly running charge of £99, both plus VAT.


Barcode Labels

Barcode labels today can come in all shapes and sizes, in rolls or pre-printed on sheets, even print your own. 


PasTags: To provide speed and simplicity, we offer barcode labels pre-printed on a roll.  These can have your company name on the top where we have Hestor - PasTag. Rolls usually have around 500 labels on them and start at a cost of £12.50 plus delivery & vat.


Emebeded Barcode: As you can see from the image opposite, our labels have both the barcode on it as well as unique serial alpha numerical coding; P109, P110. Every label / barcode is unique.  By using this method the user has the ability to use a barcode scanner at the point of testing or simply enter in the short unique alpha numerical code when entering data into the system, thus providing speed and simplicity.


To aid users of the system, we use a very simplistic methodology, P (Standard pat testing items), M (Microwaves), W (Warnings)

Barcode Scanners

Barcode scanners can now be virtually any shape, any size, some are fitted with fixed cables, others use technology such as wireless and bluetooth.


Remember these questions when looking for a barcode scanner - what is the barcode scanner being connected to, how are you going to power the barcode scanner, will it provide you with an easier way of scanning or does the cabling requirements make it just to awkward to user ?


With the exception of RS232 fittings, most will be usable, stick to bluetooth (check your computer or laptop has blueetooth receiever) or better still USB.


The best time to use a barcode scanner is when is make things quicker, if typing in the short unique PasTags code (eg: P109) is quicker than trying to scan the actual label then don't buy a barcode scanner - your wasting your money !
