With the days getting lighter, the end of the academic year and a well-deserved summer break for school staff will soon be here. But with the impending break comes the need to finalise projects ready for the new academic year, and for some school leaders, that means there’s just two months left to complete your switch to a new MIS if you want to avoid working over summer. We are here to help.
At SIMS, we make switching to our MIS easy and provide support throughout the whole process. Get in touch with us today to have your new MIS up and running before your summer holidays – it’s as simple as that.
SIMS has all the cloud benefits you would expect, with the function to access it easily and securely at any time, from anywhere, via any internet-connected device without the need for any technical expertise to keep it running.
SIMS’ unrivalled software app integrations mean you can keep all the extras you know, love and rely on when you move to SIMS. We work with more third-party integrators to provide read/write access to our MIS than any other provider, unlocking even more useful functions and giving your school access to even more tools for ultimate efficiency, cross-school communication and learning outcomes.
SIMS also has the capability to integrate with Microsoft 365 and Google for even greater efficiency and collaboration across your school, wherever staff are. Teachers, staff and pupils only need to remember one password and can access services seamlessly from any device. School-wide access can be provided to cloud documents, email, shared files, video calling, instant messaging, notes and all the other benefits of a shared environment. Enjoy the added convenience of having your SIMS timetables show in your Office365 and Google calendars.
Moving to SIMS: what to expect
We have a tried-and-tested method of moving schools from their current MIS to SIMS, including migration, set-up and training to ensure you are ready to go live with SIMS when you need to be. Whether your school is new to SIMS, returning after a short period away, or coming back to us after a long period with an alternative provider like CloudSchool, we have a solution to make your transition smooth and stress-free.
You will have a dedicated Project Manager throughout the whole process, from the first steps to your first day using SIMS and beyond. Our packages encapsulate complete data migration, set-up, training and wraparound support, all available from SIMS whenever you need it. You can choose to contract with us directly, or utilise alternatives such as the KCS framework, Y20011 or Y20024, for example.
You’re in safe hands
Your support from SIMS doesn’t end once the migration is complete; we want you to be involved in shaping SIMS for the future. When you move to SIMS, you can help us to build the ultimate school MIS with SIMS Next Gen. Join the thousands of teachers, head teachers, multi-academy trust leaders, administrators, data managers and more who are already involved in our £40m programme of continuous, customer-driven innovation, to help shape SIMS now and in the future at this very exciting time.
