Why review your MIS?

November 8, 2019 Chris Callaghan

All schools know that a management information systems (MIS) is fundamental to the running of their school. But a good system should be saving schools time by reducing administrative burdens, not adding to them.

We find that schools are often unaware that they have the autonomy to choose the MIS provider that is right for their school - whether it’s maintained or academy. Indeed, there is now a competitive market for schools to choose the right MIS provider for them, each offering new technologies, rich features and more efficient ways of working.

The process of switching to a new system may seem daunting, but it’s actually very quick and simple. In fact, at the show, ScholarPack is introducing a 24 hour migration promise - we’ll guarantee to get you migrated over to our system in just 24 hours, or we’ll give you your first year for free.

Don’t forget to shop around

As schools and trusts would do for any other considered purchase (or when centralising their services), they should review their current system and investigate other options to make sure they’re with a supplier that understands their needs, allows them to work smarter and offers the best value for money. For example, as the only specialist MIS provider for primary schools, we have an in-depth understanding of their unique data needs and have built our system specifically to support these.

Unlock powerful insights

Modern cloud-based MIS systems such as ScholarPack’s are so easy to use and create a ‘democratisation’ of data. This means that any member of staff, regardless of data expertise, is able to access pupil level data when and wherever they need it, without needing to visit the office for help. ScholarPack’s intuitive system offers numerous ready-made built in reports which means data insights can be exported within just a few clicks.

Our system can also provide a more connected view of the student - by taking into account multiple data sets from assessment to behaviour and attendance, to create a complete picture of the learner’s needs and development areas. This is achieved by intuitive features sending data to the next, layering these data sets and spotting patterns for you, to save schools pulling off separate reports and having to match them up.

With multiple users accessing the MIS across the school, trust or governing board, it allows everyone to see what’s really going on, spot trends and work together to drive improvements.
