    Interestingly, ALPS are asking schools if they run Facility and moving to Progresso in summer. They are also polling schools that don't run CMIS what they use (even Aspen gets a mention in the list!). Some weird stuff in the list.

    Bromcom
    Capita – SIMS
    Capita – UNIT-e
    Corero
    Follett – Aspen
    Furlong – SchoolBase
    Histon House – ScholarPack
    iSAMS
    Pearson – e1 (fronter)
    RM – Integris
    Tribal – ebs4
    Wauton Samuel – PASAPP
    WCBS – 3sys
    Other – Please state

    They explicity ask what MIS you use. Please tell me there are no schools using Fronter as a MIS...

    What is the group being polled? Unit-e is for FE colleges, Corero is a finance system (they do have a sort of MIS), ebs4 is FE/HE, 3sys is independent schools.

    I would be surprised if many move to or have currently any of these, if a normal secondary state school.
    @CAM yes I am happily surprised to see Aspen MIS, shows my hard work screaming and shouting about Aspen is working

    PearsonFronter is the new name for pearson phoenix so maybe confusing the issue. Probably trying to rebrand as e1 is sold on the pearsonfronter website.
    Saying that, VLEs aren't a far cry from storing all the MIS data, its mostly the processing they lack. I cant see it lasting for long.
    Look at the way FROG are retrofitting MIS features to satisfy the Malaysian market
