Save time

  • Centralised management and deployment – push out from the Trust: reports, dashboards as well as models for progress, assessment and behaviour.
  • Consistent role based dashboards - Create a common language and culture between Academies and within the Trust, enabling sharing of best practice, inter-academy cover and support.
  • Reduce workload with central administration and integration with Trust finance and HR solutions.

Save Money

  • With a single supplier, single service level management and Trust commercial pricing.
  • It’s Cloud – No more inconsistent localised licence and support agreements nor expensive hardware refreshes.
  • Share central or regionalised data and curriculum services.


Providing Insights:

  • Single database – Interrogate data academy by academy, or at a whole Trust level.
  • Whole Trust reporting - enable Trust business intelligence and curriculum teams to focus on the data and what it’s telling them, not assembling the data.
  • Trust Executive insights – with leadership dashboards and reporting.
