    Ah, okay. As a school, we don't use automated truancy calling and the data sent to the LEA isn't sent frequently enough for them to be able to use it for that purpose.

    The exporter component we use replaced a manual report that the LEA used to ask for. The change was a couple of years ago, so the deputy head who deals with such can't remember what the old report contained or why it was requested.

    We use Groupcall in Derbyshire for reporting attendance back to County. I find SIMS updates never work properly on the Groupcall PC. I have to stop the Groupcall service, run SIMSApplicationsetup and restart the Groupcall service. Seems OK after that.

    yes...

    Sir Bob Geldof, one of Groupcall's Founding Partners, says: "Given that truancy rates have been increasing year on year, the fact we now have definitive, independent proof that Groupcall Messenger significantly reduces truancy is a significant milestone for this technology. It should have huge ramifications for schools and education authorities across the country."
    ....enough to put me off

    Hi Geoff
    TextAnywhere compatible with PARS and you only have to pay for the texts as the software is built into PARS and not the additional costs of software. All texts aither incoming or outgoing are attached to the student data and you will be able to see a full history of communication via contact management

    Dave Berry has details of text messaging by the way as I was chatting to him about it last June! Contact me if you need further info j.urey@tascsoftware.co.uk no point you buying more software when you already have it inbuilt in PARS plus all messaging is logged under students communication / history
