How can I use the PicoLite to view my trip reports, quickly and easily?

For temperature-critical shipments, both controlling and monitoring temperature levels during transportation are incredibly challenging. And if that’s not enough, once the shipment has reached its destination, the shipper demands immediate access to the data collected over the course of the journey. Otherwise, the integrity of the entire shipment could be at stake. You need an immediate and easy solution for getting the critical data off the logger and into the hands of the quality control team.

Here's where the PicoLite's weboomerang™ technology comes in…

Using the PicoLite’s unique, patent-pending Boomerang feature combined with the weboomerangapplication, you can automatically receive a detailed trip report via email, in PDF format, as soon as the logger is connected to the PC during transit or at the final destination. No need for local email clients. You just connect the logger and the weboomerang application handles the rest, up until the report reaches your inbox.

How does it work?
  1. Prior to shipment, activate your pre-configured PicoLite loggers or use Fourtec’s DataSuite software to manually configure the units at point of origin with the email addresses of the intended report recipients.
  2. On the destination computer, install the weboomerang application (only 1.5 MB). It runs quietly in the background, always connected to Fourtec’s cloud server. As soon as it detects a PicoLite logger, the data report is generated immediately and delivered via our server to the email addresses saved to the device’s memory. We even save a copy of the report to the local computer.
