WFH Essentials Package FAQ

Can we export the data to our existing management software?


Yes, if your existing management system allows it, there are a number of ways we can do this. Direct access to the database would be the simplest way, however other options could include exchanging XML / CSV files using an FTP server or building a web service or API. If this is something you are interested in exploring please feel free to contact us .




Can the program be branded with our company logos and colour schemes?


Yes, absolutely. For a fixed-price we can implement any changes or additions you may have including whitelabelling with your own company branding, please feel free to contact us.




Can we add in other surveys or questionnaires?


Absolutely! This free software can be used as the foundation to a wider data collection platform for other information you may wish to collect from staff. Please contact us with your requirements.




Can I generate reports using our own reporting system?


Yes. We can export report data either as XML or CSV data files , directly from a SQL server database. You are then free to create reports however convenient to you.




Is it really free? What's the catch?


Yes. What's on offer is a free, foundational platform which is sufficient enough to ensure that your company complies with the key UK health and safety regulations regarding remote workers. There's no catch, but there may be functionality which your company specifically requires, for example you may need to track the hours your staff are spending on certain tasks, or gather information about their whereabouts to ensure safety on the road. We can add any features to your system for a one-off development fee, please contact us.




Do you offer H&S support?


We are specialists in software but unfortunately not in health & safety and therefore our free WFH Essentials software (as with any H&S software) should be treated simply as a tool to support your Health and Safety representative. In the case where your company does not have a dedicated H&S officer or in the case of a H&S emergency we would recommend contacting the most appropriate governing authority such as the HSE.
