InVentry sign-in system- Burwell Village Primary School, Cambridge
Burwell Village College initially saw the Inventry sign-in system at a nearby school. They were impressed by the stylish touchscreen interface found in reception which integrated with the school’s busy office.
The school sought a range of benefits when they upgraded the system. They wanted a better process to safeguard who was on the premises, and a system that was easy to manage. After investigating several other sign-in solutions for education, they chose Inventry and “are very pleased we did”.
Staff sign themselves in and out during school time and Miss Taylor, Office Manager at Burwell comments, “even parents have adapted well signing children out when being taken off site.”
