iPEGS was originally created to solve the issues associated with government funded paperwork relating to work based learning such as apprenticeships delivered by UK Colleges and Training providers. The iPEGS team believes in sharing best practice with all of their customers and partners. All new product features and improved processes are shared with all. The iPEGS team also believes that working in partnership with other solutions providers is a good business strategy because they recognize that there is no such thing as a single solution and that utilizing specialist providers in partnership is the most effect option.
In the early stages of the company, iPEGS faced challenges while trying to implement the iPEGS paperless solutions into companies which were resistant to change and had unrealistic expectations. To solve this issue iPEGS the team helped customers to focus on the quick wins that would lead to immediate cost savings and benefits to the organization. By successfully doing this, the resistance to change was overcome and the customers could then focus on implementing the solution to other parts of the business thus increasing the benefits and savings.
Currently the company is utilizing the latest technologies to solve the numerous issues associated with paper based forms within the education, construction, recruitment, beauty and cosmetic sectors to name a few and is constantly looking to break into new industries.

Words of Trust
“If you want outstanding support, professional communications and flexibility then iPEGS is the right choice. It is always going the extra mile to provide exceptional customer service and a seamless product. The team has been very proactive and innovative in helping us to develop a new way of working within our apprenticeship division.” – Eileen Ball, People Plus Group Ltd.
“The feedback from learners and employers has been excellent. They view the use of the iPads in gathering data both more professional and more efficient than the traditional pen and paper approach, and the quality and consistency of the data we gather has also improved too due to features within the product. The training and ongoing support from the team at iPEGS has been really impressive. The system is so easy to use and we were very quickly able to create new forms ourselves as we needed them, as well as editing the existing suite of forms we have created. The team at iPEGS is always available if we need to speak to them and to share ideas and suggestions for future development, and we see the relationship very much as a partnership.” – Phil Stittle, West Suffolk College
