Welcome to the April edition of the Tabs FM Newsletter.
British Summer Time begins. At least that’s what it says in my diary. Don’t look out of the window, allow Tabs to bring the sunshine into your life with some scintillating wit, outrageous technical wizardry and good, old fashioned information.
With Easter in mind, let’s hop straight into our egg-citing edition. (Poor? We know!)
Tabs FM Blog Update (candidate for Blog of the year)
Facilities Management Customer Service
Customer service is an integral part of any organisation. Whether your customers are external, (clients) or internal, (colleagues) is irrelevant. What’s important is how your customers perceive you, your organisation or your department. Read more...
A system upgrade will give you the very latest version of Tabs. This may improve the efficiency and performance of your system. In next month’s newsletter we will give you some information on System Health Checks in which we look at your employment of the system to ensure best practice.
To benefit from the latest developments, we recommend upgrading systems every 3-6 months. To coincide with this, we offer pre-booked upgrade plans to suit, including:
Upgrades can be completed on or off site depending on technical requirements and includes all new developments free-of-charge. Labour rates will be incurred for a certified Tabs engineer will carry out all work.
For more information, please contact our sale team either via phone (+44(0)844 556 0488) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Permit to Work
The Permit to Work module is a hidden gem within the Tabs array of modules. For those who are not familiar with the Tabs Permit to Work System, please allow us to briefly introduce this powerful solution:
Primarily developed as part of our Tabs Intranet System, the Permit system allows users to request/create work permits for any external contractor attending site. These permits include details of your local policies and regulations, which can be customised to suit. Permits contain the contractor’s name, valid permit start/expiration dates, signature strips and each permit requires authorisation by a pre-defined user(s) before passing to the contractor.
So, what’s new?
Well, when a contractor completes a visit they are required to return a completed ‘Handover’ form. Any comments provided on the form will require resolution actions to be recorded. To complete this process, we have developed the ability to record completion actions via the intranet and introduced a standard managerial report which supports a variety of filter criteria to deliver direct results.
It sounds simple, but this new development completes our Permit to Work workflow.
Last month saw the release of two new developments to our Room Booking intranet system.
Multi-tiered Events – The list of events titles within many clients Tabs Systems continues to expand until eventually become confusing to end users. To resolve this we have simplified the event selection process by introducing two tiers, Primary and Secondary. Upon selecting a primary and secondary tier, a list of filtered events will be displayed for final selection.
Bi-Lingual Event Titles – Following on from the above multi-tier development, we have also introduced a Bi-Lingual event title dropdown list.
Data Import Utility
To improve data accuracy, we have included a few new fields within our Data Import Utility. The Utility now supports the import of:
- Location Room Numbers
- Asset Group
- Secondary Asset Group
- Asset Notes
More than just cricket!
