The free referencing app RefME now contains the BCU Harvard Referencing style. It attempts to generate fields based on general searches, URLs, DOIs and ISBNs, but these should always be checked. The RefMe app can also be downloaded onto mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones from which you can create references by scanning bar codes.

The University purchased a subscription to the premium version called RefMe Plus wich allows you to create different folders and to sign in via your University account (click on "Log in via your institution" on the sign in page). You are also able to import and export reference lists from other referencing software using the .RIS format.

The BCU Harvard style in RefME is not perfect and does not contain all the formats (or it uses different names for formats or fields), but it is considerably better than any other available system. Currently, the main issue is that URLs are not live links so these need to be added manually. You should always check the references RefME generates against the BCU Harvard standard.
