Annual VT Management Programs

When specifying a Vertical Transportation (VT) Equipment Management Software for annual services.

VTPro™ is a commercially available solution that is available to perform Vertical Transportation equipment assessment & code inspection services.

The application subscription provides user access, administration rights and technical support during the subscription period. The access can be restricted by the administrator to facility and VT asset(s). The application software can incorporate detailed as built construction records with a document management area at both the facility and VT section pages.

The disciplined data standards provided options for advanced defect and Vertical Transportation equipment analytics and comparative performance tracking.

The standard reports available in the software can adjust content for producing customized reports, and options for incorporating data, photos and attached PDF documents in the report.

Facility Details

The Vertical Transportation management software can document the Facility Name, Address, Facility contact name(s), phone number & email for each Facility. Location, building use, description.

VT Systems

For the Individual VT asset areas, the program will provide data areas for maintaining individual VT asset information areas:

Vertical Transportation Equipment Management
  • Equipment Summary
  • As Built System Information
  • Elevator-Escalator Details
  • Defects
  • Service Calls
  • Inspections
  • Recommendations
  • Work History
  • Warranties


The Vertical Transportation information summary area will include the installation year, size in (square feet) a CSI description of the VT type with the corresponding description and master format number from the VT type group. Provide an estimated cost of replacement. A planned maximum service life in years with an assessed service life remaining in years, with an observer assigned condition rating from 100-0.

In the VT system construction, list the VT system components and method of attachment from the structural deck to the top surfacing. Including of the thickness of each component and the dimensions of each VT component and the equipment specifications and load carrying capacity, if applicable for the VT system.

In VT system details provide a description of the VT Equipment, details and equipment specification.

The program provides a data area for installation details, capacity, speed and usage details. The data entry supports identification equipment by CSI description type, with options for physical descriptions, specification detail and manufacturer. A VT condition rating from 100-0 and an estimated replacement date.

The VT defect area should support entering observed defects for each VT area. The defect descriptions should apply to each unique system as to provide the ability to track defects rates by each VT type.

The inspections/VT observations can be documented with the dates the inspections occurred and the name of the observer. The program provides the option to track entered defects to the observer and date of observation.

The survey area allows documenting the activities that would be specific tests or activities. The survey area supports listing drone surveys, thermography, moisture probs, and core cuts. The survey record allows attaching images and files to the record.

The VT Management system provides a template report generated with text and photographic observations. The facility personnel can edit the data options for producing customized reports.

VT recommendations have an editable description for capital and expense repairs with a budget year. Recommendations can be tracked from recommended through completion. At completion the software will automatically transfer the record to work history.

The software provides an option to link defects as closed with the completion and transfer closed defects to work history. Work history will have a documented program area to list all work completed on the VT section. Closed defects can be observed and any as built documents, punch lists and drawings can be attached.

Warranties will be managed in the software for each VT section. The warranty will be described by VT section, issue date, VT type, or component type material(s). Issue date, expiry date, warranty number, issued by and contact information. The program will provide the option to attach the warranty documents including any compliance requirement.
