    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much does it cost?2021-09-09T09:01:47+00:00

    Unfortunately its not like a plugin you can just buy, download and install it does require some work to be implemented onto your existing website. Feel free to visit our pricing page for more information on the up front costs. There are also on-going costs to cover maintenance, support and roadmap developments, we also offer a super fast hosting service.

    What is on the roadmap?2020-05-01T11:31:47+00:00

    We have built the following modules outside of the CPD system:

    • Journal based learning system (JBL)
    • Log Books functionality
    • Mentor system

    The JBL system has been integrated with the CPD system and we are looking to integrate the others with our CPD system. We are working closely with our current clients to learn what new features they would like to see and these will also be added to the roadmap.

    The other part of the roadmap is the creation of an API so the CPD module can hook into other third-party systems.

    Can I integrate the CPD system with other systems?2020-05-01T11:22:21+00:00

    You may want the CPD module to integrate with a CRM or Events system, at the moment we don’t have an API to do this but our developers can help with this on a project by project basis.

    As part of our roadmap, we will be extending the system to include an API for this purpose.

    What if I need support with the system?2020-05-01T11:18:57+00:00

    You can create a support ticket with us as part of the licence fee and we will be on hand to help you out.

    Can the system chase users who are behind with CPD?2020-05-01T11:12:14+00:00

    Yes, the CPD system has a number of chase up emails and account banners that can be sent automatically to members who full behind on their CPD or fail to update and activity.



    Do I need to be technical to set up the CPD module?2020-05-01T11:09:00+00:00

    No, the CPD module has been built so it can be set up and configured by anyone, you will have access to a number of training videos as part of the licence fee to show you what to do.

    Points or hours?2020-05-01T10:34:53+00:00

    The CPD system can be set up in either points or hours

    Can we import our historical data from another CPD system?2020-05-01T10:35:11+00:00

    Yes, historical CPD data can be imported into the new system, a CSV file would be required based on a sample supplied by us. If this can’t be done we can give you an additional estimate for this work.

    Can users download their CPD?2020-05-01T10:36:23+00:00

    Yes, users can download a copy of their CPD records to csv or pdf format.

    Can users add attachments?2020-05-01T10:38:42+00:00

    Users can attach files to support a CPD activity, these can then be reviewed by Admin as part of the CPD approval process.

    Can users request an extension?2020-05-01T10:42:53+00:00

    Don’t worry we have you covered, the CPD module includes extension requests, users can request an extension and give a reason as to why they need it.

    Admin will be notified and can approve or deny this request, if admin approved the request the additional time will be added to the users CPD Cycle and shown to them via the dashboard.

    Can we set a minimum and maximum number of points per activity?2020-05-01T10:50:06+00:00

    Yes, each activity and group of activities can each have a minimum and a maximum number of points or hours a user has to complete for each cycle.

    Users can do more than the maximum set on each activity but this will not count towards their total for that CPD cycle.

    For example, you can set reading to a maximum of 10 hours per cycle, the user can add 20 hours/points of CPD from reading but only 10 of these will go towards the required amount for that CPD cycle.
