If you are planning a new environmental monitoring system, you need to be considering CIMScan as your number one choice. CIMScan's benefits are strong enough for companies using other continuous monitoring systems software to trial the use of CIMScan for expansion projects, with a view to switching as time allows, since the cost of ownership, redundancy features, scalability and ease of management for this system outperform any other offering we have seen in the marketplace.

PLEASE NOTE: Within the Industries tab, when you click on the various industries shown, you will find they link directly to the CIMScan website. Once there, you can browse between Features, Capabilities, Components, Operation, Applications and Installation for further details. Their website is very clear and informative and certainly worthy of your further investigation.

Easy to use, expand, and maintain.

CIMScan is incredibly easy to use and maintain. Log on using a simple web browser or your smart phone and you immediately see all the monitoring points that need attention.

Select a sensor or two and then select "Trend Chart" to see a recent history to help you determine how to react to the situation. If the CIMScan standard reports don't meet your needs, you can use Microsoft Reporting Services to easily generate custom reports within the system.

Very importantly, the physical installation of the hardware and its maintenance can be easily handled by a typical hospital maintenance department or clinical engineering group, meaning expansion or redistribution of your monitoring is no longer a prohibitively expensive exercise.

Highly scalable and cost effective systems from very small to many thousands of monitoring points.

Scalable from 1 to 10,000 monitoring points spread over hundreds of remote sites. Need a 10 point system? Start out using CIMScan's server then migrate to yours as the number of monitoring points grows. You can also have local alarm display at each site. You never lose your investment in the remote hardware.

A long list of the latest off-the-shelf wireless sensor technologies and wired sensors.

Use any mix of wired or wireless sensors. Generally speaking, wired sensors are less expensive and more reliable, but they are more time consuming to installed. Wireless sensors, on the other hand, are quick to install, but the batteries need to be replaced once every year or two. CIMTechniques capabilities offer by far the widest variety of off-the-shelf sensors/transmitters available from anyone in the industry.

Alerts by email, text, pager, or voice telephone.

CIMScan offers you an extremely effective alerting system, with the capabaility to send alerts via email, pager, text messaging, and voice telephone. To ease the burden on administrators, recipients maintain their own contact information. Alert messages are delivered through an escalation process with each potential recipient assigned an escalation level. Alarms can be acknowledged using a telephone's keypad, temporarily suspending alert delivery for a user-specified period of time.

Host on your server or CIMScan's own, in the 'cloud'.

While CIMScan can be easily hosted on any Windows-based server, by far the most cost effective system can be had by utilizing one of CIM Techniques' servers. Ongoing server support is included in the small monthly fee. For those concerned about losing control of the data, the history and statistics databases can be optionally backed up to your server on a daily basis.

24/7 on-line monitoring with no gaps in data.

Nothing sends up a red flag for auditors like gaps in the recorded monitoring data. With CIMScan, there are no gaps because the remote monitoring stations or eLink controllers buffer measurement data during LAN, Internet, or server outages. In addition, the remote stations handle alarm processing so local personnel are alerted to an abnormal condition even when the server cannot be involved for whatever reason.

Easily validated with the tools and protocols available.

CIMScan is designed for easy validation. A formal validation template package (IQ and OQ) is available and, in addition, CIMScan contains a 'Validation Control Panel' which allows you to force alarm conditions and record the results.

IT friendly software

Use our server to host your system and IT rarely gets involved other than the internal networking. If you host your own system, your IT department still has little to do other than the maintenance of the server computer hardware and the network infrastructure.
