Tabs News...

It’s March already and, as I write, the sun is streaming through Tabs windows. I hear birdsong, the laughter of office workers ambling down to the river for lunch and cogs turning in our development area next door.

The first quarter always seems to fly these days and I am pleased to report positive activity here in our Woolwich offices. We have a number of implementation projects running concurrently and are heavily involved in data management, asset tracking assignments and PAT Testing for clients.

I realise there is uncertainty in many organisations at present. Cutbacks and job losses give rise to fear and lack of confidence. Our own client base is representative of the bigger picture and I have spoken with individuals in difficult situations. However, as one door closes, another opens and with the right attitude we can all learn and grow in times of adversity.

Onwards and upwards...


New Development

While we know stability is a great attribute in a CAFM System, we also need to introduce change to support our client base. Recent enhancements to the system include:Reactive Maintenance

  • Auto Email of Job Receipt – When a new job has been logged via the Tabs Intranet interface, requestors can now be automatically emailed a copy of their job receipt. Adding to the previous method of manually saving the receipt upon job request completion. Minor IT configuration required.
Room Booking
  • New reports – 2 new reports have been added to the room booking system to display room information. The first report utilises the full space of an A4 sheet to display booking details. Ideal for fixing to meet room doors. The second report displays booking details for 3 bookings on an A4 sheet. Ideal for welcoming guests.
  • Auto Email of Booking Receipt – If you are using the Tabs Intranet Room Booking system to book directly, users (booked by) can now receive automatic emails of booking confirmation. Minor IT configuration required.
  • Catering Restrictions – New restrictions can now be enabled to prevent catering being added to bookings X hours prior to the booking time.
  • Fortnightly bookings – A new option has been added to the intranet application to enable repetition of bookings or requests on a fortnightly basis.
Visitor Booking
  • Visitor Badge Photo Capture – We’ve rebuilt our visitor badge photo capture tool in line with modern technology. The new utility supports many leading web cams for enhanced image clarity.
  • Visitor Badge Printout – In line with the new image capture tool, we also developed a new visitor badge printout templates to mimic clients original designs. Please contact us should you require a custom badge template.

Exciting changes coming soon to our Mobile Solution. Keeps your eyes out for our next newsletter.


Introducing...Mobile Device Management

What is Mobile Device Management?

Simply put, it allows administrators or IT departments to control the use of mobile devices from a central location, including:

  • Improved Security Control
  • Remote Support/Control
  • Device Tracking
  • Device status management
  • Low cost, all in one Mobile Device Management tool
  • Scalable for any size deployment
  • Functional over various connectivity
  • Prevent disruptions to processes and increase productivity
  • Reduce labour and support costs
  • Simplify device management


Numerous mobile devices are connected to servers through Internet connections. Each device can be monitored and controlled via a desktop application with ease. This enables administrators or IT departments to review and resolve issues remotely, without the need for engineers to return to base. The system also provides a vast array of reports as standard.
