ValGenesis e-Logbook: Frequently Asked Questions
Which devices are supported by ValGenesis e-Logbook?
ValGenesis e-Logbook is a browser-based cloud application that supports Windows, Mac, and other platforms. The offline app is available for iOS, Android and Windows tablet devices.
Is the forms designer flexible?
Yes. First, it supports the field types necessary to enforce data standardization: radio buttons, checkboxes, textual input, date selectors, dropdowns, picture uploads and more. Forms are fully customizable in a WYSIWYG editor so they can mimic converted paper forms or support precise ordering of capture. Finally, you can reuse and customize forms versus creating from scratch.
How does the offline functionality work?
A form intended for execution is stored locally on a mobile device then executed offline where no internet connection is available. Once a secured internet connection is guaranteed, the ValGenesis e-Logbook application will automatically upload all captured data. This is an essential feature for cleanrooms and other tightly controlled environments.
What are some examples of business rules that can be applied to an electronic logbook?
Not only can you explicitly define when and where a verification must occur, but the system can trigger log form execution automatically in a recurring pattern of months, weeks , or whatever is required. Furthermore, you can calculate results values and let the system decide if it's a pass or fail. Rules can enforce prerequisites to activities, set intervals, set task dependencies, support shift handover, and much more.
Can the system handle logbooks that are not equipment-related?
Yes. The system can handle logbooks for rooms, buildings, entries, alarms and more. You define the entity. ValGenesis e-Logbook is a holistic logbook solution for the entire site.
Can you extract the results of an analysis?
Yes. Results can be collated into a customizable logbook PDF or exported as an Excel file.
Is it possible to integrate with other systems?
Yes. ValGenesis e-Logbook can integrate with applications such as MES, QMS, ERP and more to collect related log records. SAP, ServiceNow and LabWare are commonly requested. It can also integrate with the full ValGenesis VLMS.
