With the new tablet version, users can avoid the double data entry of writing notes in a field book and then transcribing them back at the office.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2013
M-Tech Software, the leader in borehole/well logging software, recently launched a new version of their primary program, QuickLog, for compatibility with tablet PCs. The software was originally developed to speed the process of creating borehole logs in the office. Now, it provides users with a simple way create logs while still in the field.
QuickLog was first published in 1993 for commercial use, providing geotechnical and environmental engineering firms an alternative to complicated CAD software. Since then, the program has been regularly updated to change with the needs of the industry, now including a tablet version of the popular borehole logging software package.
With the new tablet version, users can avoid the double data entry of writing notes in a field book and then transcribing them back at the office. It also enables them to create "pick lists" of project related geological words and phrases, speeding up and standardizing the data collection process. Lastly, users can view their boring log/well log diagrams on-site giving them the ability to choose better options for borehole locations and well construction.
According to M-Tech Software, the QuickLog tablet version is identical to the desktop version. So, there is no learning curve. Current users should be able to adjust to the new platform without any issues. File management between tablet PC and a desktop PC will also be seamless, says the company.
M-Tech also sells and rents rugged tablet PCs for use in the field. This can come in handy, as typical tablet PCs will not stand up to field hazards such as moisture, dust, and drops. With M-Tech’s tablets, users are assured a safe and reliable tablet PC that will protect their valuable boring log data.
Satisfied customers have been using M-Tech's QuickLog software for 20 years. Says Jack Murosko of ENSR, "Our committee analyzed the major boring log programs and chose QuickLog - QuickCross because of its ease of use and its high quality logs and cross section that it could produce.” M-Tech is one of the few borehole logging software companies that began their work long before current technology gained its popularity, and they are one of very few companies that offer borehole logging software.
QuickLog is currently the only major borehole logging software available for tablet PC use. To learn more about the software and M-Tech, visit http://www.MTechSoftware.com.
