MEX Prestarts


No, Prestarts has been included as a Side Module of the MEX Maintenance Software. The Prestart specific user licensing however will need to be purchased to allow your operators to carry out the checks.

Using QR Codes with MEX Prestarts

Yes, they do, along with Barcodes.

Both the QR and Barcode labels can be printed from MEX Reports or you can print an Individual Asset’s QR Code from directly inside the Asset’s Details.

Add Pictures Alongside Your Checks

Paper based prestarts could never allow you to capture the images you need to make a case.

As you work through each of your Prestart checks, you have the option to add multiple photos to each check.

When a Prestart is completed, any defects identified are accompanied with these images, giving you the full picture of the issue at hand.

You can then attach them to any Requests or Work Orders raised from the checks.
