IBMS

The IBMS product range combines comprehensive functionality with total flexibility. It uses the industry standard database, Microsoft SQL Server and can be used on existing hardware. It operates transparently across networks, and allows existing data to be imported or exported. Our database structure allows end-users to develop their own reports using the industry leading Crystal Reports or any other reporting tool.

IBMS offers a variety of configurations and modules to UK businesses. As these needs change, IBMS can be expanded and reconfigured with minimum effort to include new options and functions. IBMS is a truly integrated, flexible system that grows with your business.

At a glance the dashboard flags any SLAs which have not been met and then allows you to easily shift appointments and engineers around ensuring you make the best use your resources given their location and current commitments.

Typically the dashboard is run on a large flat screen TV or projector but many users also run this locally too.

IMBS Dashboard

From within the dashboard you can send a message direct to the engineer and also bring up the full details of the job.

IBMS Lite

IBMS:Lite is our mobile software application for field workers. IBMS:Lite integrates directly with the IBMS:Core system, it enables real-time communication with field service operatives. Information flows seamlessly between the back-office and the mobile operative, providing greater efficiencies and control over the mobile workforce.

The software receives jobs and updates from the back-office whilst enabling the mobile operative to capture essential data such as timesheets, parts used, customer signatures and certificates.

IBMS:Lite can be installed on any Microsoft Windows based laptop or netbook. Our semi-ruggedised tablet netbook provides an ideal platform for your mobile operatives.

To complete the experience why not run IBMS:Lite from our Ruggedised tablet netbook.

IBMS Mobile

Our native Android application is a scaled down version of IBMS:lite adapted for hand held devices.

IBMS:Mobile allows your engineers to review & update work that has been assigned to them and capture client signatures from their phone or android device.

IMBS mobile

Just like IBMS:Lite, IBMS:Mobile interfaces directly with IBMS:Core giving you a truly mobile experience keeping your engineers at work.

IBMS Accounts

IBMS:Accounts is our bespoke interface that sits between IBMS:Core and your accounts program (Sage, Quickbooks etc).

As part of the course of using IBMS on a day to day basis all your sales invoices and purchase invoices are created.

IBMS2Accounts provides seamless transfer of your sales and purchase transactions into all major accounts programs and can be modified to talk to any other system that we do not presently cater for.

IBMS Accounts

When you run the program you will be presented with all the transactions waiting to go into your account program. You have the opportunity to hold back any of the invoices from your accounts system.

The system will also highlight any transactions that cannot be transferred. Reason might be it is a new supplier or nominal code that is in IBMS but has not yet been added to your sage program. With the examples above there are just 5 invoices that have been rejected for transfer and the last column states it is because these are a new client in IBMS that does not yet exist in your accounts program. Simple!

Imagine never having to enter in another transaction into your accounts program again.
