Plymouth, MI (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
On March 18, 2014, Electrical Construction and Maintenance (EC&M) magazine announced that Facility Results’ FlashTrack™ product won the publication’s “2014 Product of the Year” award in the Software Design category.
FlashTrack is a software tool used by electricians and engineers to catalog, document, and capture required electrical nameplate information for an arc flash analysis. In other words, it’s a tool used to help ensure the safety of workers who come into contact with electrical components that can cause dangerous and sometimes deadly arc flash incidents. The EC&M Product of the Year contest, which was established in 2000, aims to “recognize excellence in new product development for the electrical industry.” In this year’s competition, Over 200 entries were evaluated by 16 judges who are electrical professionals in the engineering, contracting, plant facilities, and plant maintenance industries.
FlashTrack has been used to help protect workers against arc flash accidents in company facilities at Tower Automotive, The Environmental Quality Company (EQ), and Johnson Controls, to name a few.
According to Bryan Rupert, co-founder and lead consultant at Facility Results of Plymouth, Michigan, “This EC&M award is a huge honor for our company, especially considering the judges are from industries where FlashTrack can have the biggest impact. To be recognized nationally like this, by peers from within our target market, is phenomenal!”
“After 15 years of overseeing this competition, it never ceases to amaze me how many pioneering products are introduced to the market each year,” exclaimed Editor in Chief Mike Eby from EC&M magazine. “Congratulations on being included among the ‘best of the best,’ and thank you for your ongoing commitment to developing products that help those of us in the electrical industry perform our jobs faster, more efficiently, more profitably, and—most important—safer.”
This is the second prestigious industry award Facility Results has garnered for its FlashTrack product since the product was first introduced in 2012. As the winning entry for the Software Design category in the EC&M competition, FlashTrack will be recognized in a showcase publication that will be distributed with upcoming issues of Electrical Construction and Maintenance Magazine and Electrical Wholesaling Magazine.
