non Capita Personnel Database
Our Bursar has expressed concern that the Staff personnel details are being stored in the same database that all the Student details are being stored in.
She is worried that some staff (support staff) are able to access names, addresses, etc, etc, for the staff (IE other teachers).
So, I have been tasked to see if there are any other Personnal software(s) available, which there are, boatloads no doubt. But, obviously, I want something that is as easy to use as possible, doesn't link through to the SIMS .net database, but is stilll able to output files externally for the Census / pulse returns(or whatever the stupid thing is, that has the staff names), that we have to send up to the DCSF/LA every term.
Basically, she doesn't trust Capita to make sure that SIMS .net has enough security, or that it is working.
What does everyone else use ?
Has anyone else expressed concerns about this access ?
Does anyone have any useful solutions, that don't involve me being rude to the Bursar ?
