Through InVentry, they now have the ability to send customised questionaries to contractors before they arrive on site to ensure they meet the stadiums requirements and possess the necessary certifications.

The timecards and reporting have also proven to be particularly successful with managing contractors as it has allowed Portsmouth FC to actively monitor and cross-check invoiced hours against real-time monitoring.

Kurt Innes, IT Manager commented:
“The sign in system has transformed the efficiency of our greeting process as we now receive notifications when our visitors have arrived, alongside a photo of the visitor, so we know exactly who we are looking for when we enter reception.”
“Contractors are now able to review and sign our terms of working agreement on screen, before proceeding to sign in, which has been really useful. We’ve also added a custom question to their sign in process – whereby they have to confirm that they have provided their RAMS for the work they are visiting site to complete.”
“InVentry has streamlined our process and helped us move away from our previous old-fashioned system. I couldn’t recommend InVentry enough – from the initial exploratory discussions right through to installation and support – the team have been fantastic, friendly the whole way through.”
