    Quantum EFM: Major Step to Accurate and Auditable Measurement
    Quantum EFM is a major step to accurate and auditable measurement. Incorrect or missing data can be very expensive and very emotional. Having accurate flow data prior to inserting it into the production accounting system is essential. Correcting it in the accounting system is very time consuming and very tough to audit. Quantum EFM is an intuitive, D17 / PNG017 compliant, data validation software product that is able to flag suspect, uncorrected data and provides a user friendly interface for correcting it.
