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 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

We have been using MyPC for over 18 years. It is the perfect computer booking system which is easy to implement and configure. It allows you to zone your library to suit your needs offering quiet, walk up and advance booking areas. It helps create a studious learning environment. The staff and service are always outstanding.

Lisa Wootton, Library Resources Team Leader, NSCG Stafford College, UK.

MyPC booking system has made a huge difference to the library environment for both our counter staff and the general public. The MyPC booking process runs very well and is really easy to use for both staff and our customers. The librarians are much happier now that the MyPC system takes away the need for them to book customers onto the PCs. We cannot wait to roll it out to all our other libraries very soon!

Bridgend CBC

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.
