NICEIC Cert Software In Connections
Boost your business with branded certificates
Using official forms produced and branded by NICEIC or ELECSA provides a professional finish to any job. All branded certificates have a unique serial number which is trackable and traceable to prevent any fraudulent report writing. In addition, many specifiers who insist on using registered contractors will ask that they are provided with an official NICEIC or ELECSA certificate once a job is complete.
NICEIC and ELECSA certificates are produced in-house by a team of technical experts. Each section is designed to meet the requirements of the model forms in BS7671 and contractors’ requirements.
“A report or certificate is a written record of the work carried out and it should be treated with the care that it requires,” says NICEIC’s and ELECSA’s head of Direct Paul Elcock. “Contractors go to a lot of effort to get registered, so using a branded certificate or report at the end of a job makes perfect sense. It helps to join up all the dots and provides that professional finish.”
Prevent Fraudulent Report Writing
A unique serial number (including prefix) is printed on the original and duplicate of each NICEIC and ELECSA certificate and report form published for use by registered contractors. This serial number allows the origin of the certificate or report to be traced by NICEIC and ELECSA in the event of a query as to its authenticity. For this reason, no organisation other than the registered contractor is authorised to issue that form. If the serial number has been erased or altered in any way, NICEIC and ELECSA would consider that certificate or report to be invalid.
NICEIC and ELECSA strongly prefer registered contractors to issue forms produced by NICEIC and ELECSA, as this provides a measure of safety assurance and confidence to recipients.
NICEIC and ELECSA offer a threepronged approach for contractors looking to use branded certificates:
- Online certification: an online service with no software costs;
- Paper certificates: these can be purchased direct from our online store;
- Electronic certificates: Clik, a partnership that allows contractors to use Clik desktop, iOS and Android apps.
NICEIC and ELECSA online and Clik are easy to use and exclusive to all registrants. All NICEIC registrants can access the system for free with their current NICEIC log-in details.
The system is integrated with building control notification, so it provides a complete solution for a business looking to notify and certify work straight away. It also allows users to attach images and notes to any certificate or report.
Paper certificates and reports can be bought in bulk, and are still hugely popular with contractors who prefer to handwrite their reports. In fact, 50 percent of contractors still choose the paper format produced by NICEIC and ELECSA.
Clik means certificates and reports can be created on the go. It also offers ELECSA-branded e-certs in its desktop software. The user can add their company logo, use a spellchecker and calculate maximum Zs values.
