SOCS and iSAMS in sync for school sports and activities

iSAMS Blog

iSAMS and SOCS have partnered to create a better experience for teachers, parents and pupils.

SOCS – School Online Communication System – consists of three interlinked modules that make it easy to manage all aspects of co-curricular and sporting calendars. It’s the market leader in HMC schools and popular in state schools, academies and independent prep schools. Planning, attendance, reporting and even website creation and updating are all built in.

SOCS can save a huge amount of time for teachers, but as with so many outstanding applications developed for the education sector, its full potential is truly realised when it works in tandem with a school’s MIS. Integration with iSAMS, the fastest-growing management information system for schools, eradicates the need for double entry of data and, with that, the risk of human error.

As an iSAMS Partner, SOCS has access to iSAMS APIs and support, which means that schools auto-sync the data stored on iSAMS with their SOCS modules. This means a secure, reliable data connection with up-to-date information on both software systems, with no risk of confusion, contradiction or duplication.

Just like iSAMS, SOCS is browser-based, with no hardware to maintain, which keeps cost of ownership at a minimum.

So where the three modules of SOCS – calendar, co-curricular and sport – make it easy for teachers to update school websites and sports and activities timetables, the power of iSAMS sits behind it all, guaranteeing that teachers work from the latest, most accurate information, and that everyone, from staff to pupils to parents, sees exactly what they need to. It’s a powerful partnership.
