The Linq team consists of hardware, software, and application engineers (here in the US) from the facilities industry who have designed, manufactured, and installed systems throughout the US and abroad.
Our goal is to work with clients and partners to help solve business problems by harnessing the power of the cloud.
Collecting asset data in a facility is an important task for compliance and preventive maintenance. Facilities engineering staff are busy with today’s demanding work environment. Data capture rounds are time consuming and tedious work. But even worse, the value in this data is commonly lost or underutilized because it is manually written down on paper and stored in binders. There is no easy way to analyze this data for reporting purposes or finding problems before they occur.
Linq's cloud-based platform utilizes existing on-site smart phones and/or tablets at the facility to capture asset data via an app. The app pushes the data to a 100% cloud based platform to analyze and report on this data, and produce real-time alarms.
Linq's programmers have coded a simple to use platform which was driven and developed with the help of engineering staff in facilities. Working with experts in the field, and with customers who wanted to efficiently and accurately capture asset data, we have streamlined almost every aspect of our software.
Very little effort is required by facility management. Facility personnel download the app, log in and start using the app. We do the rest.
Numbers, sentences, Yes/No responses, checklists, selections, and even pictures and other types of entries can be uploaded.
Facility management can create an unlimited amount of reports and automate them to be sent to different email addresses.
Facility management can add as many users, forms and reports as necessary, accruing no additional fees.
How do I get started?
Our platform provides a simple 3 step process to start collecting data at your facility for reporting & analytical purposes right away.
Step 1: Facility engineers provide the forms they fill out daily, monthly, or even just once, to Linq.
Step 2: Linq digitizes these forms into the app (Apple and Android).
Step 3: Engineering staff download the app, log in with their credentials and will immediately see a digital version of the forms they have been filling out by hand. At this point they can start using the app to collect data.
Images can be captured as well as many other types of data.
Forms can be "programmed," or configured to show some fields only under certain conditions (e.g. when something is abnormal, new fields appear to ask for clarification).
Facility management can add as many rounds/users as necessary, accruing no additional fees.
QR codes can be added as needed per asset or per location.
Facility managers have complete and real-time control of any users or groups. Access permissions can be easily revoked and logs can be run on the submissions of any user.

Frequently Asked Questions
How will the app work for me?
Our platform provides a simple 3 step process to start collecting data at your facility for reporting and analytical purposes right away.
Is it easy to tweak or change the digital form in the app at a later date?
Yes, either you or Linq's staff can change the form within a few hours. We encourage our customers to change the form to make it more user friendly and efficient over time.
What if one of my staff members input wrong data in the app?
Each data point has intelligence behind it. If an entry is outside preset boundaries, the operator entering the data can be asked to confirm the value. If it’s correct but out-of-bounds, then an informative message will be sent as an email or text message alert to the appropriate personnel. For example, “pressure out of range on rack-22.”
Is there a way to know if a person in charge of inputting the data physically went to the location while doing their rounds?
Each asset can have a QR code provided by Linq which can be scanned by the engineer's smart phone or tablet in order make sure the person was on site to collect the asset reading, and that no human error was made in properly identifying the asset.
Can I take pictures of the asset while inputting the data?
Not only textual or numerical data, but also asset images can be collected by utilizing the camera of the phone/tablet.
Can the data be exported to other systems?
Yes, once the data has been logged and uploaded into the cloud, it can be transmitted to other systems in a variety of formats, either automatically every day or through a manual export.
Can I get alerts if the value entered is out of "normal" range?
Yes. The fields can be "programmed" for different behaviors, such as alerting on out-of-bound conditions or hiding a section of questions based on the response.
Can I have my technicians be reminded if they forget to perform a round?
The data entry system has scheduling alerts and can alert an operator if they fail to complete a round before the deadlines dictated by management (for example, once a day or week).
