libraries, MyPC allows users to view computer availability and make online
reservations via a smartphone, tablet or computer. This creates a self-service environment,
drastically reducing staff involvement. MyPC eliminates the need for paper-based booking systems or
spreadsheets and is fully customisable to incorporate your organisation’s colours and logos.
Filter bookable computers
Where you have a variety of hardware or
software offerings, intuitive search filters enable users to easily locate
their computer of choice.

MyPC promotes fair usage by determining how
often and how long each user is allowed. Restrictions can be tightened during peak times and relaxed when demand

even anonymously, to any computer user. Whether you use predefined or open text
messages, there is no need to physically approach users. Possible confrontations are avoided,
cultivating a more studious environment.

iSPY, to allow staff to view users’ screens. Handy if you wish to see if inappropriate material is being viewed on your computer resources.
