Tech partnership simplifies school administration

Atturra has partnered with Brisbane Grammar School to deliver a student information system (SIS) that will simplify administrative processes.

The SIS uses Microsoft Dynamics 365 and includes a wide array of functions ranging from people and profile management to financial reporting. It can also be licensed to other schools that need to streamline their operations and reduce administrative burden on educators.

“When we went to market, we were looking for an IT services partner that would be able to set the school up for success in the decades ahead, and support our agenda for growth and digital innovation,” said Alexis Hill, Chief Information Officer, Brisbane Grammar School.

“We selected Atturra based on their experience in education and their comprehensive understanding of how education works. Having an existing relationship with them, they have been able to better support us with an inherent understanding of the value of education, in an age when new technologies are creating exciting opportunities to transform the future of learning.

“Working with an IT services partner is a big investment for our school. We were impressed with the combination of Atturra’s expertise with Microsoft Dynamics 365, their strong presence in Brisbane and their accreditation as a Microsoft Solutions Partner integration team.”

The new SIS will replace a legacy, on-premise system housing 42 bespoke applications, which was unable to provide the school with up-to-date and reliable data. All community members will be able to use a common system for all their interactions with the school, reducing the administrative burden of operating multiple systems while unlocking data and capability for Brisbane Grammar School to evolve its processes and meet emerging learning and service delivery capabilities.

The SIS will be built on Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 and power application platforms, which offer a robust set of out-of-the-box capabilities, strong integration capabilities via APIs and Message Queues, and native integration with low- and no-code platforms.

The new solution supports an array of workflow processes and approvals for everyday school processes including cocurricular management, personalised learning, enrolments, school reports, excursions, communications, resource and incident management and financial billing and reporting.
