“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!”
“I love Arbor – it is making my life so much easier and is saving me so much time! Assessments are so much easier and are so clear!”
“The biggest win for us is having family information, attendance, behaviour logs, assessment data and interventions all in one place so that we can track an individual or group or cohort easily and produce reports quickly. Arbor has transformed the way we operate because we now work in real time and update information constantly – the data and information we hold is easy to access and dynamic, allowing teachers and support staff to use the system from anywhere at a time that suits them.”
“If I had to talk to a school that was thinking about changing to Arbor, the one thing I would tell them is to just do it, because your data will actually mean something to you. Instead of inputting data and not really appreciating why or what it means, you will get a view of what is actually happening in your school.”
“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.”
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!
