MIS Systems Thread, Phoenix Gold in Technical; Any Phoenix Gold users still kicking about?
We've developed our own management/reporting/information intranet for displaying gold data rather than deploying ...

we are one of the few schools still using Gold. Like most Gold users we are also invistigating the options to move to a new MIS. I'm currently invistigating with my LEA and Pearsons regarding ongoing support for Gold. Tbh I doubt Gold support will continue much beyond next year and it's not very good. We have the online reporting requirement coming in Sept 2010 and that alone is reason enough to move away from Gold before Sept 2010 gets here. We here are certainly proceeding on that basis.

We've developed our own in-house online reporting and it also gets exposed to users via sharepoint parts (and so quite simple to open up to parents).

Hvaing recently spoken to Pearson, they confirmed that as long as there was one LEA using Gold, it would be maintained and supported.
I'd also doubt Pearson would drop the remaining schools in it (they wouldnt want the bad PR) so I'd guess that they'd give 18-24 months notice before discontinuing it.

Hi, we moved away from Gold last year onto Bromcom MIS and, although there have been problems(which MIS doesn't have them) the system is very comprehensive in what it delivers and you can get at any item of data to produce comprehensive reports in the system or export as PDF, CSV or XLS.
The on-line reporting to parents is a peach and if you haven't already seen it I suggest you visit www.MyChildAtSchool.com and arrange a demo. It links to other MIS as well even if you dont take their full MIS this part alone should keep parents very happy.
