ALS Tribology recently released its free Webtrieve mobile application for Android devices, allowing users to receive immediate sample alerts in the palm of their hand. The app, which is also currently available for Apple iPhone and iPad, is part of ALS Tribology's strategy to improve overall reporting services, provide more manageable information and make results more accessible to end users in the field.

Instant alerts are sent to users based on sample condition. Basic information such as unit ID, equipment type and diagnostic commentary are displayed for rapid maintenance response and facilitating assessment to meet a user's operational needs. Notifications can be set for all results or just for abnormalities.

To find the Webtrieve mobile app, visit the Google or Apple App Store and search for ALS Tribology. Current Webtrieve users can use the same login and password to log into the mobile app. New users should contact their local customer-service representative to register.

A full-service testing laboratory, ALS Tribology offers comprehensive oil, fuel, coolant and metalworking fluid-testing services as well as more than 100 different specialized ASTM tests that cover all combinations of conditions, fluids and applications.
