Experience

Results Squared Ltd was first established in 2006. From an original team of four the company has grown tenfold, subsequently joining the IRIS Software Education Division to become part of a suite of software solutions across the sector.

Making the very most of our 10+ years of experience serving Academies and Trusts of all sizes, we have worked hard to maintain the original company ethos, ensuring that our focus remains on understanding customer needs and delivering excellent implementation and support.

Trusted by thousands, the PS Assets team works tirelessly to meet the needs of their customers, providing:

  • Unrivalled support and training – both online and onsite

  • Long experience in the education sector

  • Continuous development and support of the PS Assets system, all in-house

  • Specially dedicated teams with extensive product knowledge

  • Real people on the end of a phone to answer any queries

  • A true partnership with our customers

System

We have developed PS Assets with the user in mind, with a free downloadable mobile app, easy-to-navigate system screens and configurable user access rights to ensure staff can only access and manipulate data relevant to their work area.

At Trust level, PS Assets is a powerful management tool designed to provide a host of wider benefits including:

  • Improved resource management

  • Group-level reporting giving clear accountability for each site

  • Consolidation of information across the Trust

  • Risk management and easy monitoring of compliance requirements

  • Forward planning for resource, budget and facilities management

  • Secure cloud-based data and document storage

  • Consultation and implementation planning to meet your specific Trust requirements

Support and implementation

Our wealth of experience working with multi-academy trusts of all shapes and sizes has taught us that every Trust has different requirements in terms of system setup, implementation, training and support. That’s why we begin the process with a thorough consultation, so we can truly understand your unique requirements.

In many cases, following an onsite meeting between the Trust project leaders and our highly experienced implementation team, we are able to develop a simple and straightforward implementation plan.

For more complex projects, we can deliver a raft of additional service elements to ensure smooth and successful implementation without putting pressure on the Trust’s own time and resources. These include:

  • Bespoke database structure setup and revisions

  • Specialist training programmes

  • Individual training sessions (onsite or via webinar)

  • Additional consultation meetings

  • Dedicated Account Manager

  • Data imports for any existing asset information

  • Tagging and Auditing

  • Project review meetings

  • Global Assets (Trust-wide reporting tool)

Pricing information

PS Assets costs are based on two elements: an initial one-off cost associated with setup and implementation; and an ongoing annual software licence fee. The package is put together following an in-depth consultation to ensure you are only paying for the system elements and implementation options that you require to meet your needs.

Our software licence fee is an annual cost and, again, is based on the elements of the system you choose to purchase. It includes ongoing access to our Helpdesk and support team, any upgrades or future development to the system, QR asset tags in line with your requirements and access to the associated free mobile app.

Your annual software licence fee includes an unlimited number of user logins/accounts.

Access to our Helpdesk and support team via telephone and email is included in your ongoing software licence fee. Further support, training and implementation options are available, at additional cost, in line with your requirements. During your initial implementation meeting your Account Manager would be happy to discuss these with you and put together a bespoke proposal based on your project objectives.

FAQ’s

Yes. We recognise that, for some, auditing and tagging across multiple sites is a challenge. For some Trusts, there is a lack of resource. For others, there are concerns around consistent data collection, often meaning that data that has been collected is less than perfect. The PS Assets team offers an optional Auditing and Tagging Service, providing specialist personnel who will undertake identification and collection of asset data according to your specification. Again, we are able to provide this service as part of your tailored implementation package, in line with your budget and requirements.

As well as the Auditing and Tagging Service (as above), we offer enhanced training sessions in the form of webinars or extra on-site training. These training sessions are half-day sessions and can be either focused on the system itself or used as an efficient way to train your own staff on how best to undertake auditing and tagging themselves. We also offer additional review and monitoring meetings, bespoke database structure setup, data imports and ongoing, enhanced support from a dedicated Account Manager.

We can import your existing data for you, either as an additional service, or as part of our Professional Implementation Package.

Yes, of course. We have done our utmost to make the system as simple and easy to navigate as possible. Our Trainers and Helpdesk team are experienced at helping users of all levels, ensuring they get the very best from the system.

The Helpdesk feature is available in addition to the core system. It gives you the ability to create, manage and report on tasks and actions related to any asset in the system. Users can create, prioritise, allocate, manage and report on activity and specific tasks linked to individual assets. The Helpdesk feature can be used on both the desktop and the mobile app, which syncs in real time.

No, not necessarily. Depending on the size and structure of your Trust, there are various ways in which you can centralise your data and allow Trust-level oversight and reporting. Some Trusts prefer to have one account with multiple locations within, whereas other, often larger, Trusts prefer multiple accounts with a Trust-level (Global) reporting tool.
