Secure identity management

The increase of schools adopting services like O365, Microsoft Teams and Google Classroom has subsequently increased the need to manage the user data and provisioning services.

Our identity management service is designed specifically for education; its goal is to remove time-consuming manual administration tasks by provisioning services like O365 & Google.

It offers a secure single sign-on service, based on the information stored in the school’s MIS, which enables staff and students to log in just once to access multiple platforms.

School & MAT analytics

Our intelligent data solution provides schools and MATs with intuitive Power BI data analytics dashboards, specifically designed to support a trust’s data strategy and education improvement plans.

The system can support the trust by tracking student progress and attainment, behaviour, and attendance, as well as providing a framework to support wider safeguarding and intervention strategies.

Messaging and engagement

Our communications package is proven to increase attendance, reduce admin time, cut costs and transform parental engagement by allowing schools to send personalised texts, emails, voice calls, and push messages to parents, staff, and key contacts.

It helps staff to organise your parents’ evenings seamlessly and provides intuitive online forms to collect data and student information.

School payments

Our leading cashless school payments solutions have been designed to make every transaction easier for schools, trusts, and parents. This in turn makes integration and reporting easier for local authorities.

Our software packages provide a cashless service for parents and guardians when paying for trips, uniforms, lunches, clubs, and other core transactional services.

Apple Pay, Google Pay and even cash via PayPoint are available payment options to make the process even easier for families.
