Your starting point as a user is the V:Kit 5 Application. This software is delivered online – downloaded to your PC, laptop or tablet running Windows 7 or 8 (see below for minimum system requirements). With your software you receive 1 year's licence subscription for 1 registered user.

You can add test licences, reference standards, and buy qualification tools as and when needed.

When you buy a V:Kit 5 Application licence, a secure online database is created for your company. This acts as a central repository for all your V:Kit 5 data.

You can use V:Kit 5 as a stand-alone system, which synchronises with your online database when your device is connected to the Internet. During your licensed period, when you're online – your V:Kit 5 software may also be updated with modifications or upgrades. For those who use devices permanently connected to the Internet, a version of V:Kit 5 is available that synchronises data automatically.

Operations available in the software include:

  • Manage users and assign permissions levels
  • Create and print protocols
  • Import and view licences
  • Run new protocols
  • Resume existing protocols
  • View integrated procedures and standard traceability
  • Log deviations
  • Review completed protocols
  • Print or re-print audit-ready reports
  • Create a summary report.

The V:Kit 5 Application licence allows you to perform all functions with the software, apart from running or resuming protocols.

V:Kit 5 runs in 2 key modes: 'Standard', and 'Premium'.

The essential feature of V:Kit 5 Standard, is that 'quick' qualifications can be performed. In which the user sets the test, the test setpoints and parameters, and the test criteria immediately prior to performing the test.

V:Kit 5 Premium offers the same features, but also uses a more controlled style of OQ delivery, i.e. 'Protocol' tools. Users with 'manager' permissions can create and manage protocols – defining the tests to be performed, their set points and their criteria. After creating a protocol, these setpoints and criteria are locked. The qualification can then be performed without the engineer/technician being able to make changes.

There is also an extension to the 'Premium' mode: 'SDK' – a software development kit for new techniques. This is used by V:Kit Ltd to develop bespoke tests for customers, such as transforming existing 'MS Office'-based protocols into V:Kit.
