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 has filled a space left by our previous booking system better than we had envisaged. Access to our PCs is managed efficiently from anywhere with an internet connection. Students can even use our touch panel Kiosk or their own mobile devices to manage their bookings. We love the fact that it integrates with our library management system which has helped encourage students to return items on time. Those who haven’t tried a PC management system before, give it a go and you won’t want to look back.

Nelson and Colne College

MyPC allows us to ensure availability of computers for all our learners. It helps maintain suitable study environments and encourages students to use their study time effectively. MyPC’s location policies help manage study areas in different ways at different times and being able to identify user sessions through MyPC supports safeguarding of students and reinforces concepts of eSafety

Richmond Upon Thames College

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.
