The Covid-19 pandemic has changed almost every aspect of day to day life, but some areas have been hit more profoundly than others. One sector that is having to react and adapt to the ever-changing picture are schools, who are having to juggle so much extra work during this period; changing classroom layouts, creating new lesson plans and balancing fluctuating class numbers are just some of the new challenges that teachers and administrative staff are having to tackle.
The last thing that any school needs is a clunky, outdated system of dealing with staff and contractor information in order. Yet that’s what many admin staff are having to deal with — spreadsheets and documents in disparate places on the system, making it doubly difficult to keep track of things.
The InVentry system’s Single Central Record is the perfect way to keep track of relevant staff and contractor information, rendering those frustrating spreadsheets and paper systems obsolete!
The system keeps addresses, email addresses and contact information all in one place, as well as all certifications or personal checks that may be needed for your school or college.
Staff and Contractor Checks
Using the Single Central Record, you can create the necessary checks needed for your staff and contractors. This includes staff training records, contractor liability insurance or any other certifications contractors may need to provide you with.
Expiry Date Notifications
This feature is particularly useful for our education customers who need a record of DBS checks. If any information entered into the Single Central Record is due to expire, the required staff will receive an email notification saying it needs renewing or updating.
You can also make sure that those who have not updated their expired DBS checks cannot sign into the building without providing an updated DBS check to ensure the safeguarding of pupils.
This feature is also particularly useful for businesses who require contractors to provide certain documentation as it will keep you up to date with who is allowed on site. This is always important and during the added scrutiny of the pandemic can be particularly useful.
The InVentry system has so many benefits for schools. Among some of the benefits particularly relevant during the pandemic are…
- Knowing who your First Aiders on site are at the press of a button
- Keeping pupil medical records easily to hand
- Keeping track of all visitors on site easily
