After the frivolity and sunshine of last month’s Holiday Edition, it’s back to earth with a bump and time to knuckle down to some hard work for a while.
You will find information in this issue on new development, The Total Workplace Management Show, our recent ISO accreditation, remote Tabs training, new clients, marketing/business development support for service provider clients and more.
There is a pent up excitement in the Tabs office as we are on the verge of sharing some spectacular new development with you by the end of the year.
Keep a close eye on your Newsletters, we don’t want you to miss anything.
Following the August edition of the Tabs Newsletter where we introduced the new Accident Reporting System, we would like to continue with this update and introduce the re-development of our mobile solution.
Using the same intelligently designed forms as to those on our Intranet System, the flow of information ensures you capture every aspect of the accident/dangerous occurrences to produce a RIDDOR report. RIDDOR reports can be instantly produced using data supplied either via the PDA or Intranet System.
All accident/incident reports are easily monitored via the main application to support measures to prevent further incidences.
Auto Asset Code Creation
The Tabs Asset Tracking module now supports the ability to automatically create the next sequential Asset Number, including pre-defined prefix number. A simple, yet effective solution!
We’ve slightly modified our contactors register by introducing new data fields to capture Liability and Contractor Risk Details.
Blog Update ...Tabs FM Achieve ISO 9001 Accreditation
Following an assessment by an independent body, Tabs FM Ltd has been awarded ISO 9001 certification. This certification has only been achieved by about 5% of UK businesses and this prestigious award is supported by the Government and recognised world-wide.
As always, we will be exhibiting at The Total Workplace Management event, Olympia, London on 6th and 7Th October 2010.
Earls Court and Olympia are both Tabs clients so we can guarantee a safe and welcoming environment!
This will be a great opportunity to meet Tabs team members and be first to witness the fruits of our creative development team over the summer months… expect the WOW factor to be high.
We anticipate a very busy show this year so please let us know if you would like to get together over the two days.
Hospitality and general bonhomie will be of the usual Tabs exemplary standard.
Client Business Support…
We are asked more often these days to support clients, generally commercial service providers, when pitching or tendering for new business.
We are keen to help in any way we can here. Possibly through provision of supporting literature, files, screenshots or PowerPoint presentations. We can also attend presentation events to put forward the capabilities of Tabs Systems as a benefit to your potential clients.
This generally applies to our newer or pending clients who don’t feel wholly confident in presenting the scale and depth of Tabs Systems.
Just let us know if we can be of assistance. We will do our best to help and know how important an efficient operational software is to the decision makers who are interested in your business offer.
Introducing Tabs On Line …
Our Training Manager, Sunita Chudasama, is designing an On Line refresher training programme for Tabs users.
While we feel there is no substitute for face to face experiential training, we can see specific benefits including, of course, a reduced cost. We can also be more flexible on times.
This training will be conducted live by Sunita, not a prescriptive recorded session, and content will be discussed in advance to ensure we hit the spot.
It is our intention to carry out some initial On Line sessions during November and December 2010 as a controlled trial.
The cost of November and December On Line training will be advantageous and, to that end, we invite you to contact Sunita to pre book your spaces as soon as possible:firstname.lastname@example.org
We are confident this service will prove extremely popular and it will enable us to help with training issues quickly and effectively.
…more than just training
