    There isn't a web version of SIMS.net. There is an addon which provides limited web based functionality to SIMS.net users.

    I find it interesting no one has ticked Integris considering their claim to be the second biggest MIS provider in the UK.

    Ah ok thanks. That must be their learning gateway which they advertise on their site. I presumed that main application wasnt web based.

    To be fair that's my (Capita's) statement - as most RM schools are primary its unlikely that they have too many techs working in the summer holidays.

    According to the DCSF (England) they had 2014 returns from RM in Jan 09 - 1938 were nursery/primary/special. Serco had 1387 of which 851 were nursery/primary/special.

    Phil, It's amazing how you store all this information in your head and can recall it so readily

    Thats really quite interesting that over 60% of the Serco figure was that group tbh, I would have thought it more the other way around myself, hey you learn something new every day

    Yes strange thing RMs MIS product it sort of sits there and gets on with the job and nobody quite notices how much market share it has. Remember having this conversation few betts ago and had same surprise at how large % share RM have.
