Save time, money and resources with our new solutions, built exclusively for Safeguarding Boards.

As most of you know, we have recently launched our new Events Booking System with the help of Milton Keynes Safeguarding Children Board (MKSCB).

Although it’s only a couple of months in, the success of this new system is clearly evident through MKSCB’s improved efficiency and reduced costs; they have achieved an annual saving of approximately £14,000 as a result of consolidating all their functionalities together to be designed, created and hosted by us at Phew.

Helen Craddock, MKSCB Board Manager had this to say…

“Phew offered the simplistic advantage of combining all three functions together with one company [website, events booking and procedures], which has proved to be much more cost effective and made a huge difference to our admin team’s time efficiency”.

“We are still in the early days of the new [events] system, with a couple more phases yet to go, but it is currently meeting all our requirements and if any problems have occurred (as they do with new software), Phew have dealt with them quickly and efficiently”.

One of the most popular features of the system is the ability to limit the number of attendees booking on from each agency type, for example the Board can specify that they only want 5 attendees from the Police, if a sixth police official tried to book on they would be added to the waiting list. This allows for controlled multi-agency booking.

Here is a round-up of other key functions of the new system, with more still yet to come…

  • Online event booking
  • Option to charge events
  • Event reporting for attendees
  • Registration badges etc.
  • Integration to websites
  • Multi-agency type booking
  • Waiting lists
  • Certificate and training history
  • Extensive reporting
  • Options for workshop booking at conferences

MKSCB have received the following feedback by a system user…

“Very efficient, I was really impressed with the functionality of the waiting list. The system was simple, easy to access and easy to register”.

With Surrey as our next client to get the ‘full package’ and more in planning stages, we are building a solid base of effective solutions that are excelling client’s expectations. Take a look for yourselves on our Safeguarding Case Studies page.
