    This only works if the systems stay the same. If the software changes entirely then the features and capabilities that were decided upon during the prior procurement process then you'd need a new process.

    Our terms state 12 months notice for termination after 3rd anniversary so they have stuck to the terms.

    Lets also be fair, the spirit of the contract is also on shaky ground as, if you wanted RM, you would have gone with them before...

    Surely that is not Pearson charging you that? Must the the other companies...

    Should any one need any advice or guidance feel free to contact me. I have over the last year migrated away from an in-house custom MIS system and glossed over and considered several other systems.....ours is SEN focused.

    Have you found something as a replacement yet?

    Not settled on a solution yet ... I really like iSams, but it (currently) does not support SQA, although we're hopeful that might change...we're an independent school, so SEEMIS doesn't really do it for us, which leaves us with WCBS as the only other MIS which handles SQA ... unless anyone has any suggestions that I've missed

    We're also exploring a custom build solution...

    but currently WCBS has the edge - purely on the SQA issue!

    other thoughts welcome....

    I'm at an independent school on Glasgow, Seemis doesn't offer flexibility we require. WCBS does SQA but is not great (from other schools). We are looking at "English Systems" with a view to SQA later but have just heard of a new solution from a Microsoft Source which will be SQA compatible and support mobile devices. We will be looking at that in first weeks of December.
