Lee McCarthy, Parks Inspector, Fylde Borough Council:

Last year, due to tight financial constraints, budget cuts and new Government connectivity rules, I was asked to look at the software we were using to inspect our children’s play areas and see if we were getting value for money. I invited the Play inspection company in to demonstrate their inspection tool and we have not looked back. As an inspection tool it is simple and easy to use - just what we need.

The reports are client grade, easy to generate, and can be emailed out in seconds. The main benefits I have found as a result of the change are being able to access the system from any computer, especially home, a £2000 saving on the licence fee which can now be invested in spares, real time inspections, and prompt response and customer care from Play Inspection Company. The IT department are very happy as the database is stored on a secure web site and not taking up space on the council's server.

I am very pleased with the system, it is good value for money and I would highly recommend it to anyone who inspects and maintains children's play areas. I would be proud to demonstrate how the system is working at Fylde.

Steve Livesey, Parks Maintenance Technician:

I was very sceptical at first as I thought it would take more time to inspect our play areas and impact on the time we have to carry out repairs. I have found the system to be very user friendly and easy to use; being able to access the system from any computer is a big advantage as I don't have to keep going back to the office. We had a couple of teething problems when the system first went live but these were sorted out within an hour, overall I am very impressed.

Christian Theobald, Assistant Parks Maintenance Technician:

I can only speak from a user's point of view but have found the system change over very smooth; it is easy to use and simple. On the old system if I was out on inspections and the PDA crashed I lost that day's inspections and had to go back to the office to get it sorted out, because the inspections are now recorded on site in real time and stored.

Mark Satchwell, Boroughwide Services Manager, Sandwell MBC:

The introduction of mobile play inspections through the Play Inspection Company has been a major step forward for our service. It has given us an up to date asset register as well as a robust asset management system. The simplicity of the system ensured this was the preferred choice of play maintenance for operatives in Sandwell. We look forward to further developing future asset management utilizing mobile play inspections with the Play Inspection Company.
