Check out Clare the School Business Manager's final diary entry and watch how her day is rounded off with the Compliance Genie...

Dear diary;

Well, it’s the end of the school day, and it’s been hectic. Even if you discount the time I’ve spent dealing with a Genie. That’s a sentence I never thought I’d write.

Even though I’ve found out a lot about the new iAM Compliant Estates Management tool already, I still had one final pain point that I needed dealing with. And why not, I mean, if a Genie offers to help, you best believe I’m taking advantage.

Turns out that I have more problems than I thought. I spent the afternoon seeking out some stragglers to sign some compliance documents. Seriously, what a waste of time. As if I don’t have better things to be doing. Still, it’s upped my step count for the day, so it’s not all bad.

Anyway, Genie explained that the iAM Compliant Estates Management tool can even help with this problem, result! Apparently, the system can automatically generate emails to send out documents to all staff. And, even better, it can easily monitor who has read and signed any policies and risk assessments, even sending reminders so I don’t have to!

Now that I think about it, this is a brilliant thing. It’ll keep us covered, you know, now that OFSTED is asking for evidence that policies have been signed and understood by staff. With this system, we can easily report on that. And we can easily check whether our school’s policies are in line with what the DfE are advising because it has a policy compliance tracker.

I think I will take Genies’ suggestion and sign up with iAM Compliant after all. It’s a game-changer, really. Anyway, Genie has disappeared back into the lamp, but I can give it a rub if I need more help, evidently.

Today has been a good day. Weird, obviously. But good. Tomorrow will be even better - when I’ve signed up with iAM.
