It helps to minimise risks across your school by auditing your compliance, addressing missing control measures, and ensuring that you are always up-to-code. It gives you a clear understanding of reactive and proactive maintenance. It shows you when and where maintenance has been carried out.
It helps you to identify risk areas and develop your own action plan, which is sorted into three areas - future actions, outstanding actions, and completed actions.
It saves time and money, with everything in one place for estate and asset management and reminds you when contracts are up for renewable.
