Data Strategy welcomed the many conversations from new and returning customers at London’s PLASA Show 2022, where the company demonstrated reportedly the industry’s first choice cable and electrical safety workhorse, the QC-Check workstation, as well as some of the QC-Check’s most popular add-on modules, including VeriCal, Power-Check LOLER inspection and SimplyPATS integration software.

Data Strategy MD, Iain Roche, commented: “What really stood out this year was the number of enquiries about cable and RCD testing with the assumption that the provision of electrical (PAT) testing was a given. The knowledge that a simple solution exists to the time-consuming and impractical task of RCD inspections and cable testing has really captured the imagination of temporary power suppliers, in addition to production rental houses. The stand was consistently busy, QC-Check received a great deal of interest as ever and we had many high-quality conversations that we should see realised in the following year.”

Roche added: “The other area of specific interest was bi-directional integration of QC-Check with the company’s hire software.  The concept of a seamless exchange of data that avoided any entry duplication was very attractive from a logistical criterion.  We recently completed integration with IntelliEvent for two existing customers and this led to the introduction to a new client at PLASA.”

Data Strategy’s QC-Check provides practical safety inspection solutions that allow hire companies, venues, and temporary power suppliers to simply fulfil statutory requirements. Embedded as part of the warehouse process – with integration realised for most equipment hire software, QC-Check ensures cables, electrical appliances and equipment are always safe to use.

As a networked, multi-user application that controls Out Board’s PAT-4 (single or three-phase in 16A, 32A and 125A ratings) to deliver PAT, CABLE and RCD testing required by UK & international electrical regulations, QC-Check systems are installed in major film studios; rental companies both large and small (PRG, Creative Technology, Adlib, White Light and Entec); various theatres including the Royal Opera House and the National Theatre, and recently, via Aggreko, into the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, where four units were in place to test all cables and power distribution systems ahead of the Games.
