Questions about the Tracker?

Tracking compliance with the RTO Standards can be a major headache. This is a systematic and no-stress way to monitor what is already in place and check it is being followed by everyone in the business. It is mobile-friendly, so items can be checked and notes made at any time as long as there is internet connectivity.

Marilyn Harvey is the designer. She has been using this monitoring process for many years to help businesses work smarter and stay compliant. The conversion of the system into a software application was a logical extension once there was a cost-effective way to do it.

No. They are very different and it is important not to get them mixed up. One does not replace the other. Monitoring is a continuous process of 'keeping an eye on things' while auditing is a forensic examination of evidence. Monitoring activity can take a bit of time to set up correctly, but then it becomes light touch. 

This Tracker is a monitoring tool. It assists someone to keep an eye on all the moving parts! There is very little content. There are no policies or procedures or rules or similar.

Absolutely yes! Products, services, risks, timeframes and procedures all vary from one RTO to another. Once you have the Tracker, you are able to add, edit, and remove anything that suits your organisation. This is the whole purpose of the Tracker.

Yes, but take it slowly. Tackle the operations areas and one qualification first. When you are comfortable that the monitoring process is working for this coverage, then quietly expand to other products and services.  Another option is to restrict monitoring initially to the riskiest products and services.

Questions about Notion?

Notion is an online workspace with its own set of tools that allow someone to build in it without any programming or technical knowledge. Users have built personal calendars and task lists, project management applications, a full company intranet, or an application for a specialist purpose.

Whatever is built is housed in Notion's cloud infrastructure, so users only have to log in. There is also a global cottage industry designing and selling templates for Notion. 

Apparently, there are over 30 million users worldwide, many of them on the free plan permanently. If only one person is going to use the application, then the free plan is quite fine.

The Tracker has been built using Notion's tools and lives on Notion's cloud infrastructure. When someone buys a copy of it, the Tracker is duplicated into their copy of Notion, so it is not possible to move it anywhere else. It is possible to link to that copy in the same way that any external link works on the Internet.

Absolutely. Notion encourages users to add other functionality or templates by duplicating them into their existing workspace. The Framework will duplicate into your current Notion workspace as long as you use the same email address.

There is support documentation on the relevant pages. Notion has an extensive Help & Documentation process that covers all their functionality.

There are plans to develop templates that will add value to the core Tracker in the future. The nature of these will be decided on the basis of feedback from users.

Signup for Notion (free), buy the Tracker, duplicate it to your Notion, and then make any changes to suit your business.
