'We had been using Phoenix Gold for many years and felt that we had outgrown a purely on-site system and needed to move on to a web-based MIS which would give us more flexibility and easier access to our data.
Also, looking to the future, we will need to create links with our LEA and other relevant outside agencies, to allow real-time updating of pupil information. We have only been running e1 for a term and are not yet using it to its full potential but we have lots of plans for the future, our next step is to link e1 to our learning platform.
On a more practical note, I work mainly with the Assessment area and have been impressed with the ease of use and, most of all, with the speed that e1 generates even the largest reports. Teaching staff have also been impressed by the simplicity of entering data via marksheets and, particularly, that they can immediately view and print statistics for their class from the marks entered.
Finally, a word about the Phoenix e1 helpdesk; they’ve been very helpful and very patient whenever we’ve needed to contact them. I know that I’ve asked some very daft ‘beginners’ question but they’ve always been brilliant, quick to respond and pleasant to deal with.'
