In today's post, we thought it would be best to discuss one of the current hot topics that is making it's way around schools - Management Information Systems (MIS).

A number of schools in the last few months have seen contracts with current providers coming to a close, and we have been fortunate enough to assist with the migration from locally installed MIS systems (such as Capita SIMS) to cloud-based systems such as RM Integris, Arbor and ScholarPack.

With all of this in mind, how do you choose the right MIS system for your needs, and what do we recommend? Keep reading on to view the benefits of moving to a cloud-based MIS system, and how we can help kickstart the migration process for you and your school.

One of the main considerations and benefits of switching to a cloud-based system lies in its accessibility. With no locally installed software and programs required, your staff can access key information on any device or location - even from home!

When comparing costs, a cloud-based solution is often cheaper than a locally stored one. With a cloud-based system, you remove the need for an on-site server to host your MIS, resulting in saved budget on energy, server hardware and maintenance.

Finally, and arguably our favourite benefit to cloud-based MIS systems - it doesn't need to be manually updated! Your vendor will take care of all of your updates, meaning you don’t have to worry about installing the latest version. We are all too familiar with the constant barrage of emails and updates sent through to schools!

So, how can we assist you in your MIS needs?

We're fortunate enough to have strongly-forged partnerships and knowhow with a wide range of MIS systems across the board.
