Don’t just take our word for it, thousands benefit from our feature rich products –
“INSIGHT is a great asset for parents to keep in touch with how their children are getting on in school. Parents like the way information is presented in graphical format; it’s easy to understand, the information they want is in one place…”

“INSIGHT is without doubt the most feature rich, and customisable online reporting tool available on the market”
“The feedback we’re getting is absolutely fantastic! Parents say they feel that they can help in the education of their children, that it has become a more open school and they know more about what’s going on.
We started using CURA to ease our paperwork load as we have a high number of open cases . We had looked at a variety of software, but CURA was definitely the best value for money that we could find. It gives great functionality and means that there is transparency of data for staff involved in our children’s care. I really like that we can complete body maps, upload documents and keep a clear chronology of data that can then be shared with ease with other professionals or taken to meetings. Manny and the team have been an invaluable support throughout our journey of learning how to use and embed the software into our practice.
BWS made the transition from mixed online and paper-based systems after years of running a combination in order to create a single point of contact for parents, students and staff. After evaluating several systems, the decision was taken to use INSIGHT and PARS
The ROI was almost instant as parents fully engaged with INSIGHT (we have over 90% engagement per week across all seven years) allowing them tailored access to real time attendance information, contact details, homework, exam entries, parents evening bookings, cashless catering, finance systems, notification of distinctions and detentions and end of year reports as well as any important day to day notices sent by admin staff.
The students’ home page is set to INSIGHT and all homework set by teachers is available to view; no more excuses about not writing it down!! Students also have access to their individual exam timetables, either mocks or summer exams, ensuring no more confusion with clashes, class timetables, after school clubs, messages, attendance, lunch menus, catering balances etc.
Staff use INSIGHT to set homework, manage forums and administer parents evenings while also using PARS on mobile devices to take registers, manage biometric registers in Sixth Form and set detentions.
Admin and pastoral staff are all power users of PARS, automating many processes that used to take up hours of their days: the late report, missing registers and the powerful custom report tool means many reports are now generated and emailed automatically rather than depending on using the SIMS client.
BWS is currently two years into this project and couldn’t function efficiently without INSIGHT /PARS, leaving staff, parents and students to wonder how we managed before. With the first class support team (Grant and Liam, this one’s for you!) 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.
“The VLE is extremely useful and easy to sign up to. There is lots of information there, regularly refreshed and updated.
It was especially useful at exam time, when I could access past exam information that the school has signed up for that isn’t freely available on the internet. This made revision time a lot more productive!”
“Insight has transformed things for us at Trafalgar School; it allows students and parents to track their progress in an easy, user friendly way.
In particular, students enjoy the cash in feature which enables them to spend their praise points on real rewards and parents like being able to access live attendance and attainment information.”
“On the whole we are very pleased with it. We have 85% of parents regularly logging in via both the website and the App.
We like the way we can control who sees what and find this very safe for students with split families.
We find parents are better at keeping us informed of changes to phone numbers and email addresses.”
“Texting is far more efficient than our previous system; it’s easy to text all sorts of groups that have already been set up in SIMS, and is much cheaper.
Batch processing reports so that a whole year group’s reports not only appear on Insight but also in SIMS saves us loads of work.”
We use Insight (previously SLG). I was talking to a parent yesterday and she gave me unsolicited feedback – she said she is getting used to all the systems – Tucasi, Frog and Insight. Insight was the one she uses all the time, she loves it, and most of all she said how clear and easy it was to navigate. It’s all good to have an all singing all dancing look to a site, but the whole idea is for parents and students to use it. If they can’t navigate easily round the site, they will give up which rather defeats the object. Insight’s side menu is so clear and straightforward, it’s pretty much idiot proof. (We rename our menu items to our own titles).
“+1 for Tasc Software company as they have a good product at a very reasonable price and also have other software which will enhance the data management side of your school.
