New software designed to improve the efficiency of the classroom auditing process was previewed last week at an Australasian meeting of timetablers. The first implementation of the new software will commence later this year at an English university.
AuditM combines a smartphone app to which auditors download the audit route assigned to them. Multiple counting methods make the process of entering head-count information both easier and faster. After each count, or at the end of the shift, the auditor uploads the data via Wi-Fi to a central web database. This solution replaces the traditional method, where paper forms from auditors need to be rekeyed into spreadsheets.
Use of a web-enabled database means that the Audit Manager can set-up and modify audit routes in an easier fashion. Audit progress can be monitored continuously, and the results can be reported (including both tables and charts) immediately.
University timetablers immediately recognised the advantages of gathering room use and occupancy counts using the mobile phone system.
