    Yes it can be done.....Some of our schools use PARS on a MAC infrastructure successfully entering attendance data which writes back to SIMS within seconds. Grading and behaviour data can also be entered, analysed and reported on as usual.

    Re: Macs used for e-Registration

    We use Bromcom on PC platform. It works perfectly, and when it doesn't the problem is usually resolved within hours because i'm pretty certain that everyone on the helpdesk speaks SQL

    I occasionally get friendly little emails to say a problem was resolved that i knew nothing about because the attendance office logged a call earlier that day.

    The input and output to SIMS works really well, and the best part is that when i bring SIMs down for half a day every month for the mandatory updates and site specific patches to fix their little muck ups etc. Bromcom provides all key info suchas staff and student timetables, inc. photos and class lists and contact numbers.

    We don't use MACs but i'd recommend Bromcom for anyone that does or is thinking about it.

    A registration client that worked on the RM Minibooks/ASUS Eee PC would be a good idea.

    the bromcom software would work on them i think.
    that's why i was interested in the RM device we saw at the conference, the cost of the minibook is less than the handheld device from Bromcom.
    The only good thing about Bromcom's handheld PDA is that it's very robust so not a problem out in the field during PE, or left lying around a Design Tech workshop.
    apparently there's a new one out that's like a mini-tablet PC and it runs windows, i'm waiting for them to come and demo that for me.
