    Question Who offers a true Centralised MIS system???

    I'm looking to find out who offers a true centralised MIS system. One that does not require local servers and multiple databases that can be accessed from a browser?

    RM's Integris G2 is a fully web based, centrally hosted system (can be hosted by LEA or by RM)

    We use it county wide for Primary and Secondary schools

    Everything is managed and supported centrally

    Also ScholarPack and iSAMS.

    These are the only ones that I am aware of.

    Serco are bringing out a new MIS called Progresso that's fully web based and hosted, but you'll have to wait 9-12 months for that.

    If you’re a fan of SIMS I think Capita (or was it one of their partners) offer a hosted SIMS solution that you access over VPN though a browser. Or if you can wait a few years rumours are SIMS v8 will be fully web based and hosted in ‘the cloud’.

    We use Scholarpack. Hosted for us, 256 bit security, flexible and simple to use. Extremely good people and it's free too! We're pretty new to it, but have not looked back to Facility.

    We offered a hosted solution of SIMS for our schools. But we do have two racks with 200 databases on them, although the schools connect across network to access the data.

    Ah, so the client is still installed on the workstation, but the database is central?

    Ah k, that's interesting. Shame FMS doesn't work like that otherwise that'll be a nice solution.

    FMS could be centrally hosted using the same method. Edit the fmsconnect.ini to point the central server
