Drive improvement and growth
IRIS Ed:gen gives MATs access to the real-time, trust-wide data and analytics needed to drive improvement and growth. With a complete view of data across the group, the ability to drill down at school, year group or pupil level, benchmark performance and view multiple dashboards at the click of a mouse, IRIS Ed:gen is the backbone for smarter, future-ready MATs.
Saving time and money
Need better insight but don’t have six figures or countless hours of expensive resource to spend building your own data warehouse? No problem, IRIS Ed:gen delivers access to trust-wide, real-time data and exceptional analytics tools at an affordable price point – saving your trust time and money.
Improve operational efficiency
Designed with simplicity and ease in mind, many everyday school tasks can be completed in just one click. Update data in one area of the system and it’ll automatically update in every other area too.
Standardise and simplify
As trusts grow and welcome new schools to the group, legacy systems and disjointed data can make it difficult to effectively monitor and measure performance. IRIS Ed:gen helps to standardise and simplify – delivering consistency, even if you have a mixed estate of schools – including primary, secondary, early years and special schools – to promote successful growth.
One supplier, limitless possibilities
IRIS Education doesn’t just offer the smartest, best of breed MIS on the market to manage pupil data. Our range of market leading Ed Tech solutions – from HR platforms to manage staff records, finance applications to manage budgets across the group, and in-house or fully managed payroll options, complete the picture for MATs and allow them to consolidate all technology requirements with one, trusted supplier.
Spotlight on functionality
Unsure what your MAT needs most from an MIS? Our expert, Nic Clark, has the answers…
“As a former deputy head and now senior product manager for IRIS Ed:gen, I’ve worked closely with trust leaders across the UK to ensure our next generation MIS solution meets the emerging needs of trusts and their individual schools.
“IRIS Ed:gen has the unrivalled capability to support trusts to improve performance against all KPIs. With over 40 modules as standard, it’d take a while to list all the ways IRIS Ed:gen achieves this, so I’ve picked my top three pieces of functionality that your trust will LOVE.”
Game changing analytics
“Data has always been a challenge for trusts. By the time you’ve collated what you need, there’s little time to analyse it, never mind action it. And when you do, it’s probably already out of date. IRIS Ed:gen solves this problem by delivering trust-wide, real-time analytics in a few simple clicks so trusts can focus on driving improvement with timely and targeted interventions.”
“One of the most popular features of IRIS Ed:gen is Admissions Manager, and it’s not hard to see why. Trusts love the functionality because it makes managing a new intake, and keeping parents updated, incredibly easy and efficient. It even allows trusts to measure the ROI for marketing campaigns, open days, and feeder schools so future promotional activity can be optimised.”
“Every trust is different, and no one is better placed to decide when to centralise systems and standardise ways of working than the trust’s leadership. When trusts are ready to make this leap, IRIS Ed:gen’s push down setting comes into its own. It gives trusts more control over centralising processes and makes standardising the way all schools within a group operate – from attendance codes and grade books – a far less daunting prospect so trusts can benefit from consistency across the group.”
