MyPC Maps provides a simple way to design and present a floor plan of your chosen site(s) to clearly illustrate the location and availability of your bookable PCs. MyPC Maps will show which PCs and Macs are In Use, Reserved, Available and Not Available all in a colour coded format. Scrolling maps can also be set up to reflect multiple maps of different locations on the one screen.

Integration

Public Library – Integration with PaperCut MF Print and Copy Management

iTS has worked closely with the developers of the leading print management solution, PaperCut MF, to provide public libraries with an integrated print and copy solution. For public library computer systems this integration removes the need to use the PaperCut MF popup client for authentication and ensures that the library patron logged on to the PC (via the MyPC client) is charged for their print jobs. This integration also permits users to utilise their library management system credentials to logon to multi-functional devices, kiosks, value loaders and the PaperCut MF portal. If the library charges for PC usage MyPC can also offer an optional Charging Module which together with the PaperCut MF integration allows users to pay for PC usage using the funds in their PaperCut account.

What our customers say?

Our previous booking system had not been web based…Since MyPC is, it is far easier to manage and if we lose a desk pc we just drop in another pc with a standard web browser and off you go. At first I was concerned that the new system would present our staff with a steep learning curve that could have overwhelmed them – especially those that had no experience of using a booking system. However, after the first week, we were pleasantly surprised that all learning centre staff were using it without any major issues.

Chesterfield College

We've had MyPC since 2009 and regard the effect it had as an almost magical transformation! The power to organise our computer area in the library means we are now essential for all sorts of college requirements (Enrolment, Open evenings, the odd Language exam, taught classes, interviewing of prospective students, etc). Students love the opportunity to book ahead, wherever they are - the system integrates easily with our college website. We like the flexibility to modify the system as and when we need to, such as having a mix of book ahead and 'walk up' computers. We are proudly shown off to visitors by everyone including senior staff - as an effective, quiet working environment. MyPC ensures we can see who is using what, and this has had a great impact on our ability to keep the area as an environment students can rely upon.

All of the above would be very difficult, if not impossible, without MyPC. I always say I'd lose a lot of other things from the Library before I'd relinquish this. Ultimately, it contributes to the success of our students, and that is the most important factor.

Jane Spellman, Librarian

Students are taking control of their own learning and booking computers in advance when they know they will need one. We’d never go back to the old system now. We mainly bought MyPC as a way of controlling bookings, which it does very effectively, but we didn’t expect the other things that came with it – mostly, the improved behaviour of students and a more studious atmosphere throughout the LRCs.
