The ElmTree System was created by a team of engineers, managers, system analysts,
and programmers specifically for engineering &and construction materials
testing laboratories. This full-featured system covers all normal aspects
of the daily operation of a materials testing laboratory: prepare proposals
to clients, dispatch technicians, log in samples and schedule tests, report
test results, and invoice clients. With minimal customization, it can export
directly to the company’s existing general ledger accounting system.
ElmTree is useful for the entire lab staff, with data input by clerical and
technician personnel, with report reviews and quality checks by engineers
and managers, and with invoicing for accounting personnel.
Many standard reports are included in the basic version of ElmTree, and these
report formats can be customized to users’ requirements. Additional
standardized reports can be added as requested. No amount of standardized
reports will cover all testing and reporting possibilities, so ElmTree provides
for OLE-compatible reports which can use other Windows-compatible programs
such as Microsoft Word or Excel to develop customized reports. Reports can
be sent by paper, fax, e-mail, or posted to a website for client access. The
ElmTree System also provides several standard management reports:
Project billed-to-date invoice totals
Budget vs. Actual invoiced by project
Status of samples and tests in system
Report by test type on length of time from login to test date to report date.
ElmTree System is uniquely suited for engineering and construction materials
testing. The system addresses compliance with standards, such as ASTM and
AASHTO, and has been reviewed by several accreditation agencies.
