Certificate Alert and Tracking System (CATS)
G&M’s Certificate Alert and Tracking System makes it simple to track your certifications and stay informed of expiration dates and necessary renewals. The CATS system resides on the cloud and is accessible from anywhere with internet access. The system is designed to store and track all of your regulatory certificates and reports. The database is searchable using certification criteria (e.g. certificate type, certifications per market, certification standards, etc). It notifies you of upcoming expiration dates, and can be linked to other database applications. Notifications of expiring certificates are automatically sent at 90, 60, and 30 days prior to expiration. In the event of a standard expiration, notifications start at 270 days.
Initiating the renewal process with CATS is as easy as a few clicks of the mouse, prompted by an automated notification. CATS helps you avoid the untimely expiration of vital certificates, saving you time, money, and embarrassment.
The CATS system provides the following benefits:
Review companywide certification status at a glance
The Dashboard view allows you to review the status of all certifications for the upcoming quarter. The graph shows how many certificates have expired, how many are within 30 days of expiration, how many are within 60, and how many are within 90 days.
The reason for expiration is shown by color. If the certificate is expiring due to a pre-determined expiration date, it is represented by a light blue bar. If the certificate is expiring due to the expiration of a test standard, it is represented by a dark blue bar.
Quickly access all certification documentation from anywhere
All certificates can be searched and accessed in the Certificate view. Certificates can be searched via the filter bars located directly above the green header row of the table.
