Head of the Advanced Imaging Facility | Gulbenkian Science (Portugal)
"Agendo is a life savior! With dozens of calendars to manage, a database of >400 users and 50 different groups, with >18kh/y of usage it would be impossible for me to manage everything without this wonderful tool. Agendo does everything I need to keep booking and billings in order, but also accessing user contacts, managing service times, SOPS/protocols, stocks, track assistances and issue reports, project management, usage & billing reports with graphs, and new features just keep on coming! I can even manage bookings from my cell phone, which is extremely convenient. The support and development team and unbeatable, always responsive and accessible. Two thumbs up!"
Advanced Bio-Imaging Facility Manager | Queen Mary University of London
“While setting up an imaging facility, I tested various management platforms before settling on Agendo and I have not been disappointed. It is a fantastic tool, clearly designed by people with experience of facility management. It has a slick user interface that is simple to use with plenty of functionality beyond the customisable booking calendars, supporting all aspects of facility management. Perhaps most important though is that the Agendo team are always ready to help and keen to listen so the platform continues to improve.”
Head of the Microscopy Unit | Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology (Portugal)
"The implementation of the Agendo platform at CNC was a great asset both for managers of technological platforms and for researchers.
Agendo allows platform and service managers to efficiently manage the use of different equipments at different levels. Highlight:
- the easy implementation of scheduling rules, and usage;
- the availability of consumables, and their management;
- the system for easy communication with users;
- easy to obtain usage reports, which can be obtained in various ways (groups of researchers, equipment, etc.);
- the possibility of financial management of technological platforms.
For researchers, Agendo delivers a transparent and efficient way to book different equipments, facilitating the organization of laboratory work.
The support from the Agendo technical team is fantastic, and the response time is almost immediate.
Right now I'm quite satisfied and I have nothing to point out!"
Flow Cytometry Facility Manager | Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, University of Oxford (UK)
"We use Agendo with 11 flow cytometers and have a user base of over 150 people. We chose to have Agendo fully hosted and the service has been 100% reliable with fast support. Agendo has clearly been designed by people who understand the requirements of core facility management."
Imaging Facility Manager | Istituto Nazionale Genetica Molecolare (Italy)
"Straightforward, easy-to use on-line platform for facility management in research institutes, coupled to efficient built-in social networking which enables both managers and users to quickly arrange bookings."
Facility Technician | Achucarro Basque Center for Neuroscience (Spain)
"The acceptance of this management software has been really good among users (considering the most experienced and the new ones) and we consider it a very useful tool that gives users great autonomy and independence when managing their reservations, since they can access all the facilities of the center through their personal account, check confirmed reservations and availability of the different equipment, as well as check their consumption averages in previous periods."
