December 2011

Firstly, may we extend Season's Greetings to all and hope that Santa delivers to those who have been good throughout 2011. We have enjoyed a particularly eventful and encouraging year at Tabs Towers, navigating company growth and attendant growing pains. With a revised, strengthened Team in place, fast embracing new roles and responsibilities, we feel we are in good shape moving into 2012.

We will be introducing and delivering new product, initiating exciting new training platforms and focussing on development wish lists to enhance, extend and future proof Tabs Systems on your behalf.

The economic climate has obviously affected most of us and many clients suggest a pent up demand to invest in their systems when budgets allow. This affects both Internal FM and FM Service Provider models of Tabs users; the former trying to make internal cases for funds, the latter leveraged by demanding clients.

It is always our intention to help raise the profiles of our users. This may be the Facilities Department using the internal model and Business Development Teams promoting their services to multiple clients. We believe the support and services you offer are gaining more recognition in the market place and we aim to ensure that Tabs Systems will substantiate your rightful quest for recognition and reward as part of the core company goals.

So, here's to a well-earned few days away from the office and an Olympian performance in 2012.

The Tabs Team...

System Health Check

With the New Year approaching, this is usually the time when we begin to think about our new year's resolution. A few top resolutions include Get Healthy, Get Organised and Help Others. What's your resolution for 2012?

Now spare a thought for your Tabs can have resolutions too!

Kick start the New Year with a System Health Check and help your system get healthy, get organised and help others.

Health Checks?

Over the past few months we've introduced two new members to the Tabs Team, building upon the strengths of the Training and Administration departments. We warmly welcome Ilona May and Sophie Bristow to the team.

Ilona has joined us a Training Consultant and offers a wealth of industry knowledge and training experience. Ilona is already proving to be a valuable and vibrant asset to the Training department.

Sophie joins our administration team as a Business Support Assistant. With a finance background and years of experience working with Tabs Systems, Sophie is ideally placed to help with any support/accounts queries and a welcome voice on the end of the phone.

Tip of the Month

Go branch hunting outside. Spray-paint the branches in a silver or gold, pop them in a vase and voilà ... elegant Christmas decor.

Take it a step further and dangle some ornaments on them or tie a few bows.
