Coronavirus (COVID-19) message.

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.

Covid Safety

Despite staff and users largely operating from home this year, MyPC has worked to ensure their return to work/class is as safe as possible. As such, we've now added a new Preparation Time feature which gives the option to place temporary restrictions on booking a computer until they have been properly cleaned and prepared.

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 to optimise PC utilisation.

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.

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 allowed us to better manage our computer labs making them more efficient for student use. Access to self-booking and immediate walk-up reservations has simplified the process for our students yet we are still able to maintain control over our shared classroom spaces. Modifications to bookings in our reserved areas are easily made to accommodate the needs of the faculty and staff, even once a class is in session. The service and support that we’ve received has been outstanding.

Sinclair Community College, USA.

We already had a PC management system installed, but it did not integrate with other systems well and was not the most reliable. Using MyPC has provided a much better experience. The MyPC banner provides an unobtrusive experience for clients and the web portal provides admins and staff an easy way to navigate through locations. All our study centres have now been moved over.

Dudley College of Technology

Newport libraries needed a solution for computer bookings on our public access PC's that would both reduce the amount of staff time spent monitoring them and allow us more freedom in how we set each branches policies.

Previously, we were reliant on spreadsheets and manual logging-on which was staff intensive and resulted in long queues and customer complaints

MyPC gave us the solution we needed by giving customers the ability to self-book and log in without waiting for staff, and the booking sheets and MyPC maps made it easier for staff to direct users to free resources. The system was a vast improvement on our previous procedure and now it would be hard to imagine running a modern library service without it.
