In our MIS directory we list 18 different systems currently available in the UK, some specialising in the Independent sector, whilst others are stronger in the MAT market. Now we have yet another overseas-based provider entering this crowded sector – Alma.
One wonders what this new MIS might bring and how it’s going to differ from those already available. Perhaps the company sees the UK MIS market in a state of flux, or are there opportunities that are not obvious to us yet?
Anyway, it’ll be interesting to watch what happens with another new player…below we paraphrase their own announcement about their solution for the UK.
Alma Expands to Provide MIS Solution for UK
Alma Technologies has announced the launch of a UK version of its platform, which has been tailored to address the specific needs of schools and multi-academy trusts in the United Kingdom, to help streamline admin processes, improve communication and collaboration, and enhance the student experience. This includes readying Alma’s MIS platform for DfE reporting as well as lexicon revisions unique to the UK.
Alma UK features include student registration, enrolment, fee management, scheduling, gradebook, and more. The company claims to provide a seamless and intuitive user experience, with a focus on simplicity and accessibility. Its cloud-based infrastructure means that student data can be safely accessed from anywhere, anytime, eliminating any restrictions of on-premises access. Alma UK also offers the robust security measures to ensure the protection of student data and privacy.
“We are thrilled to bring Alma’s groundbreaking technology to schools and MATs in the United Kingdom,” said Andrew Herman, CEO and Co-founder of Alma. “Our mission is to empower educators and administrators with the tools they need to support students and improve educational outcomes. Alma UK is just the latest step in our commitment to delivering this mission on a global scale.”
Users of the platform will also have access to an expansive range of integrations with 3rd party software, such as Google for Education apps – and the MIS contains built-in tools to ease the transition away from other systems.
