  • synchronisation of contacts to a Google account enabling mobile phone address books to be easily maintained;
  • tracking of PPE / PPC issued to members;
  • tracking of assets, including acquisition, inspection and disposal;
  • maintaining records of ongoing training;
  • import of eAcademy records for assistance in training needs analysis, simplified reporting and integration of the data;
  • tracking of ongoing tasks via an action board;
  • sharing files amongst users; and,
  • sending and receiving SMS;
