BASIS PROMPT appoints data manager to launch training “check-in” system

BASIS PROMPT has taken on an IT manager to manage data and take the lead in a digital transformation project designed to help it improve its service to its members.

The register has appointed Andrew Boulding as its new data manager as it moves to an online registration system.

Currently, pest technicians who attend training courses, seminars and exams registered with PROMPT are required to fill in paper forms when they arrive in order to confirm their attendance.

The forms are then processed at PROMPT’s headquarters in Ashbourne, when the CPD points are added to their personal accounts.

Andrew commented on his appointment saying:

“The system will enable attendees to log their details in advance so that they will avoid the hassle of having to fill out forms on the day, while organisers will know how many people have confirmed their attendance on the day.

“It will save a lot of time and work for our team at PROMPT too, as well as giving us accurate up-to-date information that will help us serve our members better.”

Andrew originally had ambitions to become a farmer and studied for an agriculture degree after leaving school. Andrew will also carry out data management duties for PROMPT’s sister organisation the BASIS Registration Ltd, an auditing organisation for the pesticide, fertiliser and allied industries, and has also made sure that both companies are fully compliant with the new GDPR requirements.

Stephen Jacob, Chief Executive of BASIS PROMPT, said: “We are investing heavily in the IT and admin side of our organisation and Andrew’s appointment will directly benefit all members and event organisers engaging with PROMPT.

“He brings with him great experience of data management and we are delighted to have him on board.”
