Why customers love our education software
Access Education Finance and Budgeting has transformed the day-to-day running of the finance department. The system is particularly user friendly for non-finance staff. Teachers can keep track of their spend versus budget from the beach during the summer holidays, should they wish!
Access Education People is brilliant, staff across the trust can now login and view information or reports relating to their own school, while those responsible for overseeing the trust - such as myself - have different login rights and are able to gain a higher level of visibility. This has helped harness a collaborative working relationship within the trust, as individual schools can maintain their own identity.
I was impressed by the one-stop-shop of communication, one area all schools are trying to improve on. I think the biggest challenge we had before implementing My School Portal was a lack of coherence in terms of our communication. MSP provides a way of unifying but also of drawing parents in so that communication wasn’t just based on email or on reports once or twice a term, its now an ongoing open communication, that parents can access, whenever they want.
This year, we saw more students than ever use GCSEPod in preparation for their exams and it is no coincidence that our highest users were also our students who made the most progress. Without a doubt there is a direct correlation between usage and progress; in some cases students who accessed GCSEPod heavily throughout the year leapt two grades in their final examinations.
