    This was a proof of concept we produced a few years ago. We are releasing an app shortly that has its origins in this project.

    Look forward to seeing it. So this is different to Teacher View you showed off (very skillfully) at BETT?

    No it's the very same app we showed at BETT.

    It does look awesome but at the moment it only comes with SLG as a free add-on if I understand correctly.

    I'd like to see it offered as a stand alone option with reduced pricing.

    Yeh I saw it at BETT, it crashed when the guy demonstrated it but it looked like a nice interface

    He did mention it was bundled with SLG which was confusing.

    Might check it out if its ever offered seperately, we currently pay 2k+ for groupcall emerge which is a large cost that I would like to see reduced.

    For those who weren't at BETT, what is it exactly?

    It's an app for teachers, to take registers, record behaviour/achievement and see student data.

    A cool thing is if you mark a kid late it fills in how many minutes based on timetable schedule and current time.

    They are planning an SLT app too to give overview stats for management like numbers on roll, absent staff, cover, overall attendance and such like. Sounds really powerful and begins to auto-use the data that is being harvested on a daily basis and present it easily.

    I think the teacher app was coming out soon. There's a video on the capita-sims website but it doesn't show real visuals.

    The app from Groupcall does the same and more and has had an overhaul lately. Plus they also have a parent app too, as do @Schoolcomms.

    I can't imagine the stand alone price will be too far off the competitors' range. That's assuming it can work without SLG and all it's overhead.

    Shame its only on SLG . Although can think of a couple of reservations with this but would depend how it worked.

    Apparently the Apps are for SLG.... but after this shock (we all thought it was for SIMS.Net) there may be a rethink if there is enough demand.

    An American guy showed me the app at BET which to be fair looked quite good. He mentioned that it was being given away for Free!! (....with SLG) and I literally just laughed at him and said my goodbyes.

    Only Capita could mess this up so much that they finally make a good decision by giving customers what they want and end up messing it up by tieing it to a £10,000 product!

    I promptly went over to groupcall and saw their new teacher app interface which looked nice. All it needs is report writing feature and we can ditch the Sims front-end for teachers.

    It was a big disappointment, I had always understood it was linked to SIMS.Net and told schools so.

    i was laughing on the inside!

    It's a shame as it has so much potential, but if it relies on communicating with the SIMS server to be via the SLG infrastructure, it's not going to be easy to make it stand-alone. Groupcall and Schoolcomms et al have their own data transport layer.

    I can't even imagine what a bare bones SLG would be like. Still a beast.

    I think Emerge is going to have marksheets in it soon, so would cover basic independent reports and comment aspects - but don't quote me on that.
