INDUSTRY NEWS 13 the Groundsman March 2015 Visit www.iog.org for more information and digital editions Complete Weed Control invests for the future Complete Weed Control has always used a bespoke system to track work through its many regional offices. However, with the advent of mobile applications and improvements with mobile data access, a brand new system is in the pipeline. "For some time we have had an online record system allowing clients to view spray records for certain types of work," said managing director Ian Graham. "However, we wanted to expand this to provide more functionality for a much greater cross section of our customer base." The system will utilise tablet based hardware to access a web native system that can be used to rapidly pass data around the network, ensuring that enquiries are dealt with as quickly as possible. The ability to produce quotations in the field and send them electronically to the client will be another great benefit of the new system. Operators will be able to upload information in real time with regard to the progress of work, with the ability to attach images to spray records as a feature. The Invasive Non- Native Specialists Association hosts conference The INNSA Annual Conference 2015 is being held on 24 March at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. The day will include talks and Q&A sessions with high profile speakers such as industry specialists Dr John Bailey from Leicester University and Rob Simpson from BASIS. The conference will also mark the launch of the INNSA Code of Practice, which will become the industry standard for invasive weeds remediation. The code will promote best practice for the benefit of consumers and property professionals, giving them confidence when dealing with organisations which have subscribed to the code.
