PROMPT app gets an update

The BASIS PROMPT app for pest technicians has been given a fresh lease of life. The free facility, which lets you monitor CPD points, was developed by professional register BASIS PROMPT last year.

BASIS prompt appStephen Jacob, chief executive of PROMPT, said: “We came up with the idea of a mobile app for pest controllers some time ago and our first version was quite popular.

“There were, however, one or two technical problems for which we were unable to find a satisfactory solution. We’ve now rebuilt it from scratch to make sure it works consistently well and that we’re able to add further developments in future.

“The app has been in testing for several weeks and we’re confident it’s now extremely robust and up to the task.”

One of the main advantages of the app, which also acts as a digital ID card, is its ability to keep PROMPT members up to date with their CPD tally, according to Mr Jacob.

Additional features will be added during the summer including a CPD breakdown which will provide users with a list of courses, exhibitions or seminars attended and points gained along with a list of upcoming events.

Future developments could include Geolocation, which would provide users with notifications of forthcoming events near them and reminders of other key diary dates.
