ITS

Widely used within education and public 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.

Promote fair usage

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 for computers is low.

Messaging

MyPC enables staff to send messages easily, 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.

User surveillance

MyPC includes an optional user-surveillance tool, iSPY, to allow staff to view users’ screens. Handy if you wish to see if inappropriate material is being viewed on your computer resources.

LMS integration

Integrates with your library management system to inform users of their library fines and outstanding items and even ban them from reserving a computer until they have addressed the issue. This helps you to get books back on time for other users and reduce costs incurred in sending postal reminders.

Comprehensive reports

Comprehensive reports identify computers that are under or over utilised ensuring the optimum return on investment for your hardware.

Web based usage statistics

MyPC provides comprehensive web-based reports, available in a variety of formats including CSV. Anyone who needs statistics can receive them daily, weekly or monthly, delivered automatically by email.

Booking receipts

Print or automatically send email booking receipts to users confirming their bookings.

End user authentication

MyPC supports end-user authentication against your network directory (including Active Directory, Novell eDirectory, RM or LDAP) or your library management system and does not replace your logon mechanism or require the use of generic or “service” accounts.

Power Management

Power up workstations at opening time using Wake-on-LAN and power them down at closing.

Multiple browser support

MyPC supports Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari.

Smartphone booking

MyPC also includes booking options for iPhone, android and other smartphones including tablets.

MyPC Maps Module

MyPC Maps provides a simple way to design and present a floor plan of your chosen site(s) to clearly illustrate the location and availability of your bookable PCs. Scrolling maps can now also be set up to reflect multiple maps of different locations on the one screen.

What our customers say

MYPC does everything that we need it to as it is very flexible and versatile for the different things that we use it for. I don’t think that there is anything else available like it to make life easier. We can now offer a combination of self-booking, walk-up and staff booking services for student access to PCs whilst retaining our overall control over this service. This has reduced queues and boosted our customer satisfaction ratings.

Wyggeston & Queen Elizabeth I College

MyPC is an effective tool for centrally managing and monitoring PC use across the three Drop-In sites in our college. The time-controlling function means that our limited PC resources are not able to be monopolised by select students, and the booking capability allows students to reserve PCs when they know they have a free period. With our multiple Learning Centres, the recent addition of the MyPC Maps module has been a welcome addition for students - real time schematics of PC availability are transmitted across the college site through our Digital Signage, enabling students to better plan where to go for access when required.

Aston Sixth Form College

Having MyPC means we can stop people with overdue library resources from using our facilities. This has been effective in retrieving items as students want to have access to the PCs and therefore return items they might have otherwise just kept. It also means LRC staff time is now spent supporting students and managing behaviour rather than booking people on and off computers.
