New iPEGS Features – App update

May 4th, 2017 Posted by App updates, News No Comment yet

The team here at iPEGS are constantly looking to add new features and make improvements to the iPEGS products. We have been particularly busy over the last four months striving to perfect and advance some of the features on the iPEGS app which are detailed below.

– Open API

The iPEGS Open API V1.0 allows automated access to the iPEGS platform. You can now obtain user and form data via a simple RESTful interface. This enables businesses to obtain data that is held on the iPEGS platform to their own database system. For more information, or for a copy of the API documentation then please contact us.

– Auto Increment Field

The Auto Increment field enables you to generate unique sequential numbers each time a form is saved. You also have the ability to specify the format and starting number.

– Photo Draw Field

You can now take a photo using your device and then draw or add text to it before adding it to your form.

– Image Draw Field

Add a fixed image to a form and then draw or add text to it.

– Page Breaks

Fed up with scrolling through long forms? You can now create Pages on your forms with the new Page Break field.

– Improved PDF Formatting

We have been working on improved formatting for the PDF output of the forms. We also have a second phase of improvements scheduled in for the next update.

– UK (London) Data Centre (Migrated from Ireland)

Your data has always been secure with Amazon AWS (PCI Compliant, ISO27001) but we have made the decision to move our data centre from Ireland to the new London data centre.

– Auto Save (Turn On / Off – App Settings)

Auto Save is a great feature to help you avoid losing forms – however, if you don’t like it – you can now turn it off in the App settings.

If you have any questions about these new features, or would like to know more, then please contact us directly on Tel: 01244 560 717 or email adam@ipegs.co.uk

The MiPEGS app – Increased communication for Schools

November 3rd, 2016 Posted by News No Comment yet

Primary and secondary schools are struggling to cope with the demand on their resources due to the increase of pupils. Information relating to this growth can be found in the Department of Education report here.

On average, a secondary school has approximately 1,000 pupils. Various consent forms need to be completed and signed for by the parent or guardian on behalf of the student. This results in high volumes of paper being printed which impacts on an already tight budget.

Most schools and colleges are striving to rid themselves of paper. If a solution to this problem was implemented using the MiPEGS app it would reduce costs relating to printing, improve communication and create a more productive, secure and efficient system for the longterm. This will then allow finance saved to be put back into positive resources and much needed educational facilities.

MiPEGS enables schools to send a range of forms to the parent or guardian to be completed, electronically signed and submitted using their smartphone through the MiPEGS app. Examples of these forms include, Absence requests, Consent for School trips, Parent permission, Update of contact information and feedback forms.

Screenshots of completing and electronically signing a consent form through the MiPEGS app:

      

Benefits of the MiPEGS app:

–Forms can no longer be forged by students, making a more secure and authorised environment.

–No delay on returned forms, the parent will receive an alert to complete and sign a form by a deadline through a push notification on their phone.

– Updates relating to the school or their child’s education can be sent through to the app for them to acknowledge.

–Completed forms can be exported to a pdf or csv  document and stored electronically onto the pupil’s records.

–Groups of contacts can be created for ease of sending various forms

–No more office space taken due to storage

–Simple to use form builder to create and edit forms to send

–Forms can be completed, signed and submitted anywhere in the world, perfect for parents who work away

Forms can also be sent to staff to complete, sign and electronically send back, making managing of HR a doddle.

The iPEGS app for Dental Practices

October 28th, 2016 Posted by Clinic app, Electronic signatures, News No Comment yet

A trip to the dentist is something that cannot be avoided. Dental practices see vast amounts of patients each day resulting in printing huge amounts of paper based documents for patients to complete, sign and to then be manually inputted into their system. For some practices, once this form has been completed it is then scanned onto a management system and then shredded which is an unproductive, costly and a time consuming process.

The iPEGS app provides a solution to this problem, enabling patients to fill in medical history forms and sign treatment plans digitally through the app using an iPAD or tablet. This document can then be converted to a pdf, excel, word, csv or an xml document and stored onto your patients record or emailed directly to the customer or healthcare professional.

Our practice surveys allow businesses to understand and improve on the service and environment that they offer for their clients. This allows management teams to analyse this data through the advanced reporting feature.

If you are interested in finding out how iPEGS can work within your business then please call us on01244 560 717 or email us at info@ipegs.co.uk.
