The changing face of ASSET MANAGEMENT O

ut of development and now in the field, ACMS UK is currently working with clients across a range of sectors to install Vision-tags

(RFiD/Near Field Communication technology). Used in conjunction with Vision risk compliance software, any authorised individual, be it client, maintenance personnel, authorised employee or contractor, can simply hold up a mobile phone (IOS or Android) that has downloaded the Vision Mobile App, to the tag to be able to read and/or edit the live data, held in Vision, at site level. The tag itself has the ability to display any data pertaining to that

asset, location or item of equipment/machinery (or even an individual if desired) on the Mobile device. Certificates, documents, even user guides and videos can also be uploaded to that asset. One client, a major university, is using the tags to manage its

emergency lighting throughout its campuses. Head of Asset Management at Anglia Ruskin University, Christopher

Willis, comments, “Utilising the Vision software system, Anglia Ruskin University is continuing to improve and evolve its asset management procedures and is working with ACMS UK to install Vision-tags. These tags will be applied to all rooms/areas allowing authorised auditors to scan the tag and all live data relating to emergency lighting, in this instance, in that area, is returned and updated via an authorised mobile device. The software also allows us to

upload any documentation, such as servicing schedules, to individual assets, so when reading the tag, we – and our contractors – will have

every bit of information needed immediately to hand. Ultimately, in utilising the tags in this way, we will have comprehensive knowledge of all our assets, where they are, their current maintenance status, etc., which means nothing will get overlooked or missed and all the information needed will be in on place and easily accessible.”

Seamlessly blend school and home learning experiences with


o support schools with the ongoing challenge of providing remote and blended learning (a lasting impact from coronavirus), NetSupport has launched its new, easy-to-use, cloud-

based teaching and classroom management platform, Whether in a school classroom, at home, or a hybrid of both, enables

teachers to lead learning in any location with ease, and most importantly, deliver a sense of continuity. This not only helps to minimise disruption for students (which can have a negative impact on learning outcomes) but also supports teachers' wellbeing by removing the extra stress in having to switch platforms. Using a simple dashboard, teachers can select the class they wish to teach and are

automatically connected to the relevant student devices. Within minutes, teachers can run ‘live’ lessons that are engaging, interactive and will keep students immersed and on target for success. Combined with its classroom management tools, such as screen monitoring and website and application metering, teachers can also manage student behaviour online and ensure they are safe and on task. As schools prepare for the new academic term, NetSupport is offering schools the chance to

try free for 30 days, to help schools ensure it’s the right fit for them. Al Kingsley, Managing Director of NetSupport explains: “During such unsettled times, maintaining continuity and consistency is so important – for

both learners and teachers. Having one platform that can seamlessly switch between in-class and remote learning provides that continuity and helps minimise disruption. We have built the platform specifically to help teachers deliver quality learning experiences no matter where they, or their students are. Having developed with the help of teachers, I am confident it is the easiest online platform teachers will ever use, with tools that capture feedback, monitor and manage online behaviour and ensure students remain engaged.” September 2020 37
