Management Information System (MIS) for schools
See why 1000s of schools have moved to Arbor
“I love Arbor. I don’t know why we stuck with our old MIS for so long. With COVID-19, you have been so great and have been coming up with solutions before we have even realised what the changes are needed! It’s amazing!”
“Arbor’s cloud based MIS has not only allowed remote working within what is a challenging, time sensitive period; but also given the exact information required without the need for additional query templates to be set up.”
“Arbor has transformed the way the school works by having everything in one place. It’s easy and intuitive to use, allowing us to focus on what matters most in the school, the students.”
“We were a bit nervous about the move from [our old system] to Arbor, as you would be, but we’ve all really embraced it and are loving the system. It’s so user-friendly!”
“Since we moved from our old MIS we have never looked back and there isn’t a day that goes by without someone saying ‘God, I just love Arbor!’Nothing is ever too small of an issue when you call. Arbor flows so much better than [our previous MIS]; it’s user-friendly while giving you vast information but at the same time it doesn’t overwhelm or confuse. Arbor is that good you actually want to spend time playing on it creating custom reports, finding out what it can do.”
“I’d been working with our old MIS system both in support roles and as the Data Manager here for over 20 years, so I think everyone was really surprised at how I embraced the change to Arbor. But I could see at an early stage of the implementation process that it had some really powerful and easy to use features for creating custom groups and sending out communications for all the curriculum groups as well as the custom groups. I really wouldn’t want to go back to the old system.”
“Arbor has been a really great exercise in helping us step back and question the way we were doing things, and asking ourselves: ‘Why do we do that?’ and ‘Can we do things a different way?’ For example, parents’ evenings used to be this massive deal, but with Arbor, it’s easy. Another example is exams; Arbor gave us an opportunity to question how we were running exams at Pool and see if there was a better way.”
“I love Arbor because the MIS and team helped us gain the GOOD rating that we so desperately deserved after a tough few years! The staff at Baxter College were able to show the amazing work they do day in and day out, to Ofsted thanks to Arbor.”
“Arbor has improved the statistics that we can get, regarding behaviour and attendance, to allow senior leadership teams to make better informed decisions to drive improvement. With Arbor, the right information is in the right place at the right time. E.g. Detentions are automated to send a report to go to form tutors two minutes before afternoon registration session. This has helped improve students’ behaviour.”
When you hear your staff say, I just couldn’t live without Arbor’s MIS, you know that it really is a Management Information System for everyone”
The Arbor team are a great bunch to work with. Always friendly and polite, and I enjoy working on a first name basis. They are quick to respond to urgent requests and listen well to suggestions for future developments, many of which we have seen actioned over the past 12 months.
When we met with the team at Arbor for a demo, we were very impressed – the system is fast, easy-to-use, very visual and user friendly, and the support is exceptional. It is far less stressful to navigate than SIMS! We have had other companies before and you never get the same person answering your queries so you are forever having to repeat yourself. I recommend other schools to Arbor all the time!
If you’re looking for a MIS which does everything there’s no other option really. When we met Arbor, you could just tell this was a different way of doing things. There was a degree of ambition that matched what we wanted to do for our school
It’s simple and easy to use, makes getting data much quicker, and there’s an overall fantastic service. The look and feel of the Arbor platform has engaged all of our staff, whether they be teachers, support or admin. Finally we feel we are now in the 21st Century!
