Platform for the communication needs of schools worldwide

iSAMS Blog

Finalsite provides an intuitive website management tool, a paperless enrolment solution and a learning management system (VLE) to enable blended learning and flipped classrooms. More than 1,500 schools in 75+ countries use Finalsite’s multiple-award-winning web software, built on Ruby on Rails. It is integrated with more than 50 education technology partners.

Now, with this powerful iSAMS integration, schools can save tremendous amounts of time, while ensuring accuracy through a seamless data flow between the two systems. Information will automatically flow from the iSAMS database into Finalsite for use in: the email module eNotify for school-to-home communication; searchable directories and roster data; personalised forms; Finalsite’s learning management system and password-protected communication portals for students, parents, alumni and staff.

Automatic data transfers run hourly to refresh constituent information from iSAMS into Finalsite, with a full data refresh each night. Single sign-on (SSO) facilitates a pass-through from Finalsite into iSAMS, which means that users can easily update their own information. All connections take place over a secure SSL connection, while an intrusion protection system continually scans incoming traffic for malicious activity, keeping constituent and class data safe.

What made the integration all the easier was the understanding our two companies have of the many virtues of truly connected software. It should be the aim of any software provider to make their customers’ lives simpler. iSAMS’ powerful database and modular architecture is designed solely to do that. Integration with FinalSite gives schools even more control of their own destiny and of their pupils’ learning experience.
