How long have you been using ScholarPack?
This is our third year using ScholarPack.
Why did you choose ScholarPack?
We were looking for an alternative management information system to replace our previous system, SIMS. We came across ScholarPack and were attracted to how the system worked and also the user friendliness. We found we would save a lot of money by switching our MIS so we went ahead and migrated to ScholarPack.
Which areas of ScholarPack do you use the most?
We use the registers and school meals on a daily basis and they have proved to be extremely helpful. We previously completed our meals information on paper copy which had to be taken by hand every day to each individual classroom, usually by a pupil. By using the meals feature we can now collect all of the required information quickly without disruptions to learning.
How have you found the support from us?
The support team are always prompt at replying to any questions or queries that we have. We find the log a ticket button very practical as it allows us to send a question and speedily receive a solution while we're logged onto the system.
How did you find migrating from your previous system?
We found it painless to migrate from our previous system SIMS. All of our data was transferred across easily and quickly. All of our pupils' information on SIMS was safely relocated onto ScholarPack.
In what ways has ScholarPack helped your school?
ScholarPack has definitely helped our organisation in school and saved us lots of time. The system is helping us to be very efficient, before we would pass absence notes around the school whereas now a teacher can type a note on their online register for the admin staff. The efficiency carries through for both administrators and teachers alike which results in better communication throughout the school.
Would you recommend us?
Yes, I would recommend ScholarPack and have to several schools already.
