You have probably been using true cloud-based solutions in your life for a while; just think of the many times you get an automatic upgrade for the apps on your phone or computer. True cloud systems have been integrated by global hardware providers, including Microsoft and Dropbox, for several years. Now, this next generation of software is available to schools.
WCBS announced today the launch of HUB to give schools all the benefits of cloud technology for their information management. HUB is a true cloud, Software as a Service, multi-tenanted solution. It provides schools with an alternative to costly servers; giving them access to school-specific software that is fully managed in the cloud.
What does SAAS and true cloud mean for schools?
The Software as a Service (SAAS) provision means that schools will automatically receive instantaneous system upgrades in zero downtime, data backups, disaster recovery, and complete management of their software without having to do a thing; a significant benefit for all schools.
True cloud-based technology reassures schools that the system has been built especially for the cloud. This means that no third-party service provider or reseller is required; removing the risk of unstable installations, compromised data security, or delayed, time-intrusive and costly updates.
What can schools get from HUB?
Through HUB, WCBS will provide schools with an intuitive school information management platform that can be customised to meet their data and software needs.
Features available include user-targeted reporting and analysis, multi-language provision, instant messaging capability, student assessment, online admissions, simple and secure integration with third-party software, mobile and multi-device application, and WeChat integration (for schools in China).
HUB allows different users, whether they are teachers, administrators, parents or students, the ability to securely access only the school information that’s relevant to them, anytime and anywhere. It will also enable schools to communicate with parents in their local language or a choice of languages (including Mandarin, Thai and Vietnamese as well as English) to maximise their engagement and collaboration.
Access to true cloud school information management
HUB is available to any school anywhere in the world that has internet connection. It can be installed immediately and implemented when the school community is ready, providing ready access to an information management system that is school-specific, secure, simple to use, flexible and fully scalable.
Our CEO at WCBS, Emma Goodwin said today: “There has been a big gap in the education market for true cloud-based technology. This is next generation software and there’s been huge demand from schools for this so that they can focus their investment on teaching and learning rather than out-dated IT infrastructure. It’s a significant step-change in school information management functionality and service support for them, and WCBS is thrilled to be leading that change.”
