Because of this, looking for something that provided a centralised location so we could manage all our core student information was essential. We wanted to be able to access things like parent/guardian contact details, attendance records and even academic information from a single place.
We spent some time browsing various local and UK-based suppliers, but local MIS providers weren’t very mature at the time and we needed something with more sophisticated functionality and features. So, we opted to look for UK suppliers, as they matched our curriculum very well and were fairly mature, with the enhanced features that many local systems didn’t offer.
We settled on iSAMS because, put simply, they offered us everything we were looking for. iSAMS meant that we had one core system through which we could amend and access all our data, streamlining and centralising core processes so our schools ran much more efficiently. They also placed a big emphasis on support, which was another key factor for us.
