The iPEGS team have been extremely busy over the past few months advancing and perfecting the new features which have been added to the MiPEGS app.

These new features which are now live are detailed below:

– Form Templates

Form Templates is a big update for MiPEGS. You now have the option to create one time forms that you publish to your users/groups or form templates which are available all of the time for your users/groups.

The MiPEGS Open API V1.0 allows automated access to the MiPEGS platform. You can now obtain users and form data via a simple RESTful interface. For more information or for a copy of the API documentation then please contact us directly.

– Signature Wizard (Improved Signature Process)

Most MiPEGS users will never get trained on how to use the Signature field. Therefore, we have made some improvements making it a step by step process to make it easy for the user.

– Landscape Mode

Like to type with your thumbs? Prefer the screen to be wider? You can now complete forms in Landscape mode.

– Manual Sync / Refresh

No more annoying loading each time you access the App – swipe down or hit the refresh button to get updates.

Want to see what your forms will look like before you publish them? You can now use the Form Preview feature on the Form Builder

– Select and Delete (Forms/Users)

You can now quickly select and delete forms and users.

– 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.

– Anonymous Web Forms

Create Web Forms that anyone can access – no user account required.

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.

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.
