    Not only are we considering it we have moved back (or will be within the next few weeks). Received the disks on the last day before Christmas break.

    Deviating slightly from the original question ... many schools who have jumped ship from SIMS.net are moving back... Main problems I have heard various issues but key staff such as those doing cover/timetable and assessment find the interface awful and simply can't do what it a MIS should!

    It might have been good to move to another company initially because the old version of Sims DOS modules and the Windows Launcher based modules were quite bad.

    I know that Sims.net isn't perfect however the .net version is slowly but surely bringing everything back together and I believe it is very good! It does depends on your school and your requirements.

    Many academies do seem to be choosing CMIS, but in my opinion the User Interface is poor especially for admin staff I am not a fan of the e-Portal look either. Again its personal preference.

    I would echo this - SIMS ain't perfect but having work on MIS systems over the years none of them are.

    If you need to talk to a school that switched back I know The Lakes School in Windermere did.

    We have a demo from SIMS in a couple of weeks. What should we be asking?

    Never looked back since switching from SIMS.net as most of the poll respondents agree, yet the text replies are not matching that. How very strange. LOL
