Customization of SiteFX Sampling Program Manager Tools
York Region operates 14 water systems and 6 wastewater systems serving 18 communities and 1 million people. Operators are divided into 7 teams which collect over 10,000 samples per year.
In 2007, York Region recognized the need to implement a new management system that would standardize the way samples are tracked and collected across all 7 teams as well as tie in with the existing SiteFX database which was already being used for the management of water quality data.
Implement a user friendly data management system that allows scheduling of sampling events, collection of ‘one-off’ samples, bottle label and chain of custody production and sample tracking.
SiteFX’s existing Sampling Program Manager was highly customized to match York Region’s requirements. Particularly the division of work among 7 teams, a central sampling program administrator, and a sample submission system that is coordinated with the lab.
- Central database (SQL Server), multiple concurrent users
- Ability to handle Scheduled and Unscheduled sampling events
- Admin level user develops sample programs and has access to advanced features
- Ability to filter samples by team
- Different modes of operation for water and wastewater
- Customized labels and chain of custodies
- Laboratory data file importing
- Adverse event logging
- Advanced Reporting Tools
SiteFX 4 was rolled out initially in 2007. In 2011 York Region moved to SiteFX 5. Over 40 operators now utilize the SiteFX 5 software. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
