What technology do you use to eliminate or reduce manual data entry and/or the use of paper scratch sheets to log PMs or repair documentation?

We have bar coded CE numbers and use a bar code reader to scan the number and a Wi-FI laptop for portability, but I still have to manually key in and enter PM or repair data. - 16%
Even though we have bar coded CE numbers and a “clinical engineering computer system,” I still have to record repair and PM data on scratch sheets or forms and then key it in manually at a desktop computer. - 74.9%
