We can safely say that the goal of delivering a one-stop online solution for staff, parents and students has been achieved. 

We needed a single platform that fully integrated with our Sims system and allowed in particular, a means to facilitate online learning and engagement.

After an initial period of research into possible replacement platforms April 2020,  it was agreed that the IT department would initially trial the online demo version of TALAXY. After careful consideration of all factors involved, it was decided on April 28th 2020 that TALAXY would be the platform we would adopt.

The quality of support was an important factor in our choice. We were happy with the previous level of support that TASC had been providing (for another product), and this had now been enhanced with an appointed support manager who contacts us on a weekly basis to talk about any issues we may have had, and to keep us informed of upcoming module improvements and updates.

TALAXY is a single platform is that it has actually come with a cost saving over the previous platforms we used, as it has enabled us to cherry-pick the actual modules that we need, rather paying for an all-in-one bundle of modules containing features we wouldn’t actually use.

The TALAXY platform itself is a PWA (progressive web application) so functions on all types of devices, which was an important consideration, bearing in mind the multitude of devices that people now use. We are also pleased to say that we have all the functionality that we previously had before the migration, but now also have (amongst others) a homework module for students and a parent’s evening module with video conferencing (which has been very popular with parents).

“TASC Software Solutions Ltd have been and continue to be instrumental in developing this product for us and we are delighted to be in a very strong partnership with them”

“With the first class support team and the ability to evolve the product through enhancement requests, I, as the Network Manager, and BWS as a whole, couldn’t recommend TASC highly enough”

Targeting areas of good practice and opportunities for improvement

Data is worthless unless it ‘does’ something.  Logging information is the first step however meaningful and effective analysis is key to progression, recognising good practise and areas to be improved.

TALAXY graphical interface produces data visual enabling for a quick overview of key data; it also has the power to undertake in-depth analysis including demographic filtering, to find the root cause of potential issues allowing for leadership intervention.

Analyse your key data including Attendance, Behaviour, Assessment

…and it’s not just for individual schools…..

TALAXY not only allows for individual schools to manage, analyse and present their data, it is designed enabling MATs and collaboration of facilities to analyse whole group data across any Management Information System (MIS) even if a mix of MIS’s within your Trust.
