Fluke is requesting your help to understand the current and future workload trends in the industry. We occasionally perform this study to update our priorities for procedure development, which in return, ensures that we are publishing the procedures you want (and need) the most.
If you would like to contribute and are a MET/TEAM or MET/TRACK user, we have developed a pair of Crystal Reports that allow you to view and export data related to the date of service and equipment type of serviced equipment. This data is entirely anonymous and Fluke will not redistribute this data under any circumstances. This process will take less than 10 minutes of your time, and two different sets of instructions are provided below; one for MET/TEAM users and the other for MET/TRACK users.
After installing the reports and exporting data per the instructions below, please submit the CSV file to Michael Seaholm (firstname.lastname@example.org).
