The ESG Agenda: environmental, social & governance
In today’s global arena, setting an ESG Strategy is seen as an important benchmark for how responsible organisations operate. A successful ESG strategy covers the three main pillars of sustainability: Environment, Social, and Governance. IoT is a great enabler to measure your impact.
Sam Coombes is the Facilities Manager at Ringwood School, overseeing all site and facility related issues and practices, including new build and refurbishment projects. Sam was looking for a systems provider local to the school with a good reputation who was well versed in the business communications sector.
Ringwood School use a radio system to allow around 25 users to communicate quickly around the school. They have a vast campus comprising 13 buildings and nearly 18 acres, and they needed a solution which would work reliably both indoors and outdoors. Previous 2-way radio systems have struggled internally on the site, as the age of some buildings mean walls are 2ft thick concrete. Another problem with the existing PMR radio solution was that it picks up the channels of the neighbouring Leisure Centre who could also hear school communications. A new solution needed to be put in place for Data Protection reasons, to ensure that all interaction reminded within the school premises.
As we started to work through Sam’s requirements it soon became apparent that our ability to offer alternative communication and tracking technology could provide even more value and a more robust response in addition to the two-way radio route.
“We are delighted that we were able to demonstrate the value of an integrated solution that now delivers so much more functionality and reassurance for Sam and the team at Ringwood School. All of their needs were met with our out of the box solutions, however we also have the flexibility to integrate into other systems to provide a tailored solution. Many schools and education establishments have been using two-way radio technology for years, however not all are aware of the improvements that have been made recently, the value of upgrading their equipment and the benefits of working with a business communications, IoT and tracking specialist such as ourselves to help identify further improvements that the right tech can bring to facilities and communications management.”
