Pro-Study is the essential, innovative study tool that collects and organises your research, text, graphs and images in a single click and stores it all in a dedicated database that is easily accessible. It quickly and effortlessly categorises your research topics by grabbing your specifically selected text and images from Websites, PDFs, MS Word and just about anywhere else you can select text and saving it into your personalised colour coded category tabs. If text cannot be selected Pro-Study has an OCR feature that makes inaccessible text accessible, a very useful tool when accessing online books etc. You can also drag and drop whole files into your Pro-Study categories within your projects.
Pro-Study doesn't just bookmark whole websites it allows you to highlight specific text and just put that text into one of your pre-made categories within one of your projects. This gives you more time for the actually assignment rather than having to sift through countless websites.
All of your research is in one place and it is easy to flick between projects, edit projects, edit categories and change what colours represent which categories.
You can export your required research straight into Microsoft Word. You can choose to either export a whole project or individual categories from the software's database. This allows you to use previous research from other projects in new assignments.
Referencing is done for you as all the required information is automatically collected. You can simply change how Pro-Study references your research in the export options. This means that you don't have to choose from a predetermined list and then have to edit it later to meet specific requirements.

Brain in Hand software lets you easily access support from your phone. Used by people with autism or mental health problems, it's packed with features to help you remember activities, reduce anxiety and feel supported. Together this helps you achieve your goals – whether that's travelling independently, staying in school, going to college or university, starting work for the first time or just learning how to deal better with life's up and downs.
To ensure vital elements of your day aren't missed, including planned leisure activity programmes, you can enter appointments and routines for each day into the diary section of the system.
Everyone faces different challenges in life and find which coping strategies work best for them. But when under pressure this can be forgotten. Brain in Hand keeps your best thinking available on demand in your pocket.
Brain in Hand includes a traffic light system. You are prompted (at pre-agreed intervals) to indicate how you are feeling by tapping a traffic light icon on your phone – green if everything is fine, amber if you are feeling uneasy, or red if you want support.
If pre-planned strategies aren't working and you need more support, help can be requested using Brain in Hand. Pressing red on the traffic light feature sends a text alert to your person of choice, letting them know you need to talk something through right now.
Brain in Hand keeps track of all the problems and solutions that you press on the smartphone, and sends them back to your personal website. So, when you're back at your laptop, tablet or PC, you can go to the website and look back at how well you've dealt with that day.
Brain in Hand work with partner organisations including county councils, autism charities, schools and universities across the UK to supply and support Brain in Hand, including providing mentor support for the 'pressing red' traffic light feature.
