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.
Capita – SIMS
Capita – UNIT-e
Follett – Aspen
Furlong – SchoolBase
Histon House – ScholarPack
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... :suspicious:
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.

@CAM yes I am happily surprised to see Aspen MIS, shows my hard work screaming and shouting about Aspen is working :D
ALPS handle data analysis for Post-16 so anyone with a Sixth Form.
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
