Capita SIMS will be on stand B190 at Bett 2016 to showcase Hosted SIMS which allows teachers to access SIMS from any internet-connected device.
Hosted SIMS simplifies everyday tasks such as analysing data for a particular year group before a lesson. It allows staff to complete registration in the classroom or at the start of a school trip using their laptop or tablet computer. What’s more, it saves a school’s IT team countless hours managing software upgrades and backups as all this is taken care of by the Capita team.
Phil Neal, managing director of Capita SIMS, says: “Hosted SIMS now provides more than 5,000 teachers with the flexibility to work from any location using their PC, Apple Mac or tablet device and more than 500 schools across the country no longer need to worry about unnecessary hardware or maintenance tasks.
“Hosted SIMS is an affordable, hassle-free solution for schools that no longer want to manage the IT, but still want to provide staff with a means of easily recording and accessing data on the management information system that 22,000 schools use.”
Julie Coulter, office manager at Shortstown Primary School, remarks: “Hosted SIMS means staff who have to travel a long distance to school can log into SIMS from home and access live data 24/7 if they want to.
“It also means teachers can enter and retrieve the latest assessment information for an individual or class from any part of the school building with a Wi-Fi connection. Also for a primary school with limited IT support, it is great not to have to worry about software upgrades or managing servers.”
Hosted SIMS uses the latest Microsoft Azure cloud platform to ensure reliability. All data within SIMS Hosted is encrypted, even when it is not being used.
