At InVentry, we are proud to have served hundreds of satisfied customers. Take a look at the kind words from just a few of our happy clients.
“We wanted to improve out visitor management system and combine that with staff ID badges for signing in and out. The ability to link with SIMS has meant that the InVentry system has exceeded our expectations and we receive many complimentary comments from visitors.”
June Riley, Bursar – Newstead Wood School
“InVentry has revolutionized our safeguarding in school. The system is easy to use and staff, children and visitors can sign in at the touch of a button. Many visitors comment on how easy it is to use. We don’t know how we managed before.”
Chris Pyle, Business Manager – St Monica Infant School
“As the receptionist at BDB, I am pleased to tell you how happy I am with the Inventry Management System. To have such a clean, paper free, reception looks so professional. Many visitors from other schools have commented on how “flash” and “modern” we are. Who doesn’t love to hear that? Our students love using it too!”
Mrs Boniface – Bishop David Brown School
“After looking at several systems, InVentry stood out the most as being able to meet our very short deadline for installation and was able to offer the following key areas:
“Ofsted compliant DBS register/single central record.
Ability to read from our existing MIS system, Progresso.
Produce a fast and effective fire register.
Real time GPS tracking using InVentry Anywhere.
“Installation was a very smooth process and the subsequent training was comprehensive, allowing staff to use the system immediately.
“We love the ability to pre-book visitors and email them an invitation – this has improved visitor flow at our main reception with most visitors commenting on how professional the service is. The badges are produced to a high quality with a clear photo, meeting our safeguarding policy.
“On the rare occasion we have had to log a call, the InVentry technical team has been very quick to respond.
We have yet to extend the system to incorporate students; however I have no concerns that this will be very straightforward.
I have no hesitation in recommending InVentry; the service has been excellent and has added to the professional image of our school.”
Denise Tarpey – Congleton High School
“InVentry has improved the school visitor management system, and also provides accurate details of adults in school for fire emergency. It’s easy to use and manage. Their support team is helpful and resolve problems very quickly, making our lives easy at the office.”
Klare Ng – Immanuel & St Andrew CE Primary School
“We have found the InVentry Management System to be a valuable resource in our school. We use it as a staff sign in/out system and a visitor management system, both of which are an efficient safeguarding tool. We also use it when children leave school in school time for appointments and to record late children (this has now encouraged our parents to get their children to school on time as they have to come in and give a reason for the lateness!)
“The whole process from getting a quote, through the installation process and training session were all extremely easy and we would recommend this system to other schools.”
Beverley Bale – St Peter’s Primary School, Bolton
“We are very pleased with the InVentry signing in system. It has decreased the amount of traffic throughout our Administration Suite in the mornings as children and visitors are able to quickly sign in to the system and free up the area for other users. The InVentry Visitor Management tool has enabled us to be much more efficient by allowing us to send invitations to visitors with a pre-populated bar code which they can sign in with upon their arrival. All of our service users are very impressed with the new software.”
Kim Nickson – Pike Fold Primary School, Manchester
“We have been using the InVentry system in Hollywood School since April of this year and are very impressed with the complete system.
“No longer have we got visitor books, passes, lanyards etc., cluttering up the reception area but have a very professional looking piece of equipment. Everyone, including parents who log their children in and out when being taken off the premises during school time, find it easy to use.
“The reporting side is an extremely useful tool as we can see who has attended, and when, should we need to check without having to leaf through pages in a visitor book–added to that we can actually read the names! When taking phone calls at the end of the day, we can see which staff are still on the premises without having to run around the school looking for them. From a personal point of view, since I have to ‘bank’ hours, I can print a time card report off without the need to use a log book and calculating the hours. Since I also have to complete the attendance staffing sheets each Friday, I can see at a glance who has been absent.
“I can fully recommend the system to any establishment. It’s simple to use, has so many useful features and works out cheaper in the long run as we no longer have lanyards going missing, nor a need to purchase visitor books and pre-printed passes.”
Sue Luton-Brown – Hollywood Primary School, Birmingham
“So far, InVentry has been an incredible success in our school. The InVentry team ensured that the installation went smoothly and were always very helpful and approachable.
“The functions offered by the system have ensured that our thorough approach towards the health and safety and safeguarding of our children, staff, parents and visitors continues within our school.”
Andy Jones – Dosthill Primary School
“As a school we were fed up with stickers and a signing in book. It just didn’t work.
“InVentry has made the school look efficient, professional and all visitors are properly logged into school.
“Photographs of visitors, emails to say they’ve arrived. Live updates on my iPhone. Late children signing in and integration in SIMS is seamless. I’m so pleased we chose this system.
“The InVentry system does everything you need to help run a busy school office.”
Jamie Jackson – Deputy Head at Salmestone Primary School
“We had the system installed last summer and all the admin staff love it. We know who’s in the school at any given time. You can check when people arrive and leave at the touch of a button.
“As we have two reception areas, it enables us to be much more security conscious with visitors.
Everyone who uses it is very impressed!”
Debbie Reed – HR & Extended Schools Administrator at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School
“The installation of the signing in system has proved to be a winner. No longer do we have to track down missing visitor badges or carry signing in books out with us in case of an emergency.
“All regular visitors can be added to the system with their CRB details. It provides foolproof, up to date reports on the people visiting and attending the premises.”
Julie Banham – Office Manager at Bolton Brow Primary School
“Previously, we would leave signing in books by both front and rear entrances at the school, and have to rely on staff members remembering to sign in. Visitors to the school are impressed by the quality and professionalism of the ID badges and staff will know instantly whether the visitor has been CRB checked.
“It has been a fantastic investment for the school. My mind is put at rest knowing that if there did happen to be a fire, we would know exactly who was on site at the time.”
Susan Mallinson – Business Manager at Dalton JIN
“Northfield Road Primary School had the InVentry System installed in September 2012. Staff, parents and visitors have been impressed with the system. It is able to give us an accurate reading for pupil & staff attendance/lateness/appointments. Visitors have a printed photo ID badge to wear at all times. All of our supply staff details, including CRB details, can be entered and printouts can be obtained for double checking timesheets–this saves us lots of time! The evacuation report when printed gives lists of all pupils arriving late and all staff and visitors on the premises. We have suggested adjustments & improvements and have been met with a positive and efficient response. We are impressed with this system so far!”
Nicola Balkham – School Business Manager at Northfield Road Primary School
“I was searching for a better way of safeguarding who was in our Junior School. A system more secure than the usual signing in book with a tatty sticker.
“I was also aware of the need to tighten up on late children and have a systematic approach to staff signing in to report to governors.
“I found the InVentry System had all the elements we required plus more and scope to expand usage.
After demonstration the installation was fuss free and caused minimum disruption. We don’t know what we’d do without it. Security of CRB checks in place, children are secure, and from my iPad I can check exactly who is in school at any time.
“The staff love swiping in so quickly! And we have an accurate record of all visitors throughout school. All visitors comment positively on InVentry and are really surprised at the reasonable cost!”
Claire Constantopoulos – Head Teacher at William Barcroft Junior School
“The Inventry system is a simple to use system with a powerful administration system to allow the school to keep track of visitors and staff, and enter all staff and visitor CRB details.
“The installation was very quick and the training was given in such a way that all levels of staff now understand how to use it. Everyone who visits the school comments on the efficiency of the system. The system allows us to quickly see which staff and visitors are in the school building at any time and produces a photo ID badge at the touch of a few buttons.”
Jenny Clapham – Business Manager at Percy Shurmer Academy
“The InVentry system has been an important step forward in our work to safeguard our students. Every visitor having photo ID within seconds of arrival is an important and excellent improvement in regard to what our previous system offered. To have an email sent immediately and automatically to the person being visited has also greatly improved our procedures for the benefit of all. Signing out on departure literally takes just seconds and we are left with a detailed record of who has been on the premises, when and details down to the registration plate of their vehicle. I am delighted to have the system operating here at St John Fisher.”
Kevin Higgins – Head Teacher St John Fisher High School
“What made the system really stand out was how easy it was to install and use. This coupled with the low cost were what made us go with it.
“It meets our needs better than any other system and makes life a whole lot easier, with features such as the automatic notification of a visitor’s arrival for our staff. This emails them a photograph of the person, so they know who they are looking for when they arrive in a busy reception.
“We have been really delighted with InVentry. Without a doubt, it has made a significant contribution to our safeguarding procedures and I would have no hesitation recommending to any other school.”
Alan Davies – Head Teacher of Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Language School
“The InVentry visitor system has been an excellent purchase for our school reception. The first thing visitors see is the digitised log in system allowing them to sign themselves in even if the receptionist is busy on another call.
“It shows the school has a modern outlook, produces ID badges improving safety and in the event of an evacuation it produces an instant list of people who are still on site or those who have left including staff.
“But for me, being in charge of ICT, I love the technical support. Got a problem? Give them a bell and you get a real person to speak to, not a fault logging system like some companies provide.”
Pete Monfort – Assistant Head of Westborough High School
“The inVentry visitor entry system has paid dividends in terms of safeguarding, Ofsted inspectors loved it.
It provides instant photo ID badges for all visitors and notifies the person they are visiting of their arrival by email with a copy of the photo.
“It also provides an instant register for fire evacuation and a very quick and easy staff signing out system.”
