    It's not cheap, but then nothing from Capita ever seems to be...

    There is fortunately, something within the requirements, that says "... regularly updated..." or words to that effect, it does not mean you have make todays registers available... regular can mean once a term... or even once a year, everyone is assuming daily.


    If I had the chance to go again, I would have the bi-annual reports that go out to the students exported as PDF, and then give the parents access to this (as the registration data is stored on this).
    As this is gonna be a lot cheaper/easier than any other solution.

    • sims linked documents


    And many other feature too numerous to mention. More importantly they are very responsive to suggestions / requests and have superb tech support. They have even supported us in making all this data availiable through out VLE! Definately recommended.
    I had an online demo from Tasc software today. I was very impressed. It's an easy to use front end for parents and equally easy back end for administration staff.

    Compared to Capita's solution it's far cheaper and much less complex to implement.

    I will be signing on the dotted line when the quote comes through next week.

    More work but it keeps me off the streets.
    Some of your LEA may well find themselves out on the streets fairly soon as they didn't do their homework - apparently Fronter are about to release their own online reporting tool (in May).
