Civic Amenity Booking System

Modus helps Civic Amenity Sites re-open after lockdown.

We have been working with various Civic Amenity Site operators to produce a booking system suitable for use to regulate traffic at sites as they re-open after lockdown closures. It is essential to manage traffic and ensure visitors and staff are kept safe and able to observe social distancing. This requires a more structured approach to visits.

We have worked with an existing booking system specialist to produce a system tailored for Civic Amenity operators requirements. This allows the public to book slots and thus regulate the traffic and visitor numbers.

A good time to move to Office 365?

The COVID-19 lockdown has forced many companies having unprecedented numbers of staff working from home. Current remote access solutions may be unable to cope with the volume. Staff will usually require access to documents, email and voice & video conferencing to be able to continue with their work.

Modus are Microsoft Partners and in recent years have moved many companies to Microsoft Office 365. Moving to a cloud environment can provide easy access for staff wherever they are working. Moving away from local servers also takes away the problems of server support, data backup, hardware maintenance and budgeting for server replacements.

There are many different licences within the 365 family. In addition to the standard Office software, Microsoft have some great tools for team working over remote workers. Microsoft Teams pulls together messaging, voice, video and document access into a single application. Teams Channels allows all message conversations to be associated with their respective projects rather than lost in long emails chains. Microsoft InTune allows enterprise levels of security and mobile device management to be in place for even the smallest of companies.

Please visit our website for more information on Office 365 and how Modus may assist your move.
