What are Smart Folders?

Smart folders are a new software feature that makes file management and testing a dream for your industry.

Add a main folder

The KUDUwave software lets you organise your patient data with a filing system similar to what all computer users are familiar with in Windows. We have now taken it a step further and added Smart Folders!

Smart Folder Button

A smart folder allows you to pre-select which tests you would like to conduct with all patients inside that folder. By selecting the smart folder type suited for your industry, you will activate the settings which streamline your testing interfaces and automate all the correct selections to find the results you need quickly and efficiently.

Smart Folder Types

The KUDUwave uses multiple criteria (OSHA, SANS, WHO etc. ) to develop testing protocols and assistive interpretations of results. The KUDUwave software uses these criteria to separate which test protocol should fall under a particular smart folder type.
