Now that 77 MATs are using Arbor’s MIS to manage and collaborate more efficiently with their schools, we looked at the 4 key reasons MATs decide to switch to us. 

Stay connected to all your schools

Arbor MIS for MATs brings all your schools’ data together so you can instantly see how your students are getting on, and jump in if you need to. Act on everything important, fast – and all from just one system, so you and your staff can get on with focusing on what matters most.

Follow up centrally

Arbor lets you log into your schools’ MIS systems in one click, meaning jobs like chasing absent students, following up on behaviour incidents and investigating overdue marks are simple, painless, and take far less time.  You can even set up escalations and workflows to get things done automatically, and track progress using standardised or non-standardised assessment frameworks.

Never ask for data again

Reporting in Arbor is as painless as it should be. Use our Report Builder to create reports for stakeholders in minutes (not days!) and send them out daily, weekly or termly to suit the needs of your Central Team. Stakeholders have the information they need without having to ask all the time, and can make better-informed decisions as a result.

A smooth transition with human support at every step

Having helped over 77 MATs and 800 schools make the switch, we understand the importance of making sure your new MIS is a success for your schools and your Central Team. We’re on hand to answer questions every step of the way, and our phone lines are open 8am-5pm every day of the week.

“Arbor’s simple interface is easy to use, and we love the MAT reporting tool – the ability to see MAT data in one place without having to contact all schools individually has saved us so much time!”

Lisa Sarikaya, Deputy CEO at St Bart’s Multi-academy Trust

Give your MIS provider notice if you want to switch

If you’re planning to move all your schools to a cloud-based MIS like Arbor, most MIS providers (e.g. SIMS) need at least three months notice if you want to switch this school year.
