Welcome to the second edition of our newsletter, PIO News!

With Christmas approaching and the summer holidays just around the corner we would like to thank everyone for their support over the past year. We wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a safe New Year.

PIO Vault 
Over the coming weeks we will be adding a PIO Vault feature to our platform. All users will receive at least 30MB of storage space free of charge to upload any of their professional files. All files remain in their original format so you can download, update and re-uploaded to ensure the latest version is always available wherever and whenever you need it. For those who have a large number of files we will be making additional paid storage sizing options available.

Nursing Council audit requirements - Met Sucess! 
We are pleased to let all our individual subscribers know that we have just had our first individual subscriber successfully complete their nursing council audit requirements using the PIO ePortfolio.
We already knew that PIO is a great way to keep all your professional information safe and in the one place but its great to know it can be quickly and easily compiled to respond to an unexpected audit process and meet all the nursing council requirements.

PIO Support Packages
We have recently added a number of paid support options to complement our free self-directed video guides. These can be found under the PIO Services menu available on the first page after you log in. They vary from short-term phone support through to us working with you to fast-track building of your professional information.
If you find you need something slightly different follow the contact link on the support packages page and we would be happy to talk through your needs.

Using Your Phone To Upload Your Paper Copies
To assist converting your paper copies to electronic files we provide a mobile web site. Using your smartphone or iPad visit our www.pio.co.nz site. It automatically detects you are using a mobile device and directs you to the mobile web site. Logging into the site will allow you to take pictures of your paper certificates, professional development evidence, etc and upload them directly into PIO as image files for storage and inclusion in your portfolio’s. We have published a blog post giving a step-by-step guide to using the functionality.

We are continually working on improving our platform. We always value any feedback. If you have any ideas for improvements or opinions on areas that could be improved please let us know. You can send us your ideas and views through our contact page by clicking here or by emailing us.
