A fully managed service
Every school or other academic institution, has the problem of creating and disabling users and groups as pupils & staff join and leave during the year. This is especially the case at the start of the academic year. It is vital that these accounts are created accurately, consistently and in a timely manner. Without their accounts being set up correctly the school's users won't have access to email, documents, classroom tools and other systems within the modern school.
Salamander Integration Suite solves this problem as it links directly with your management information system. It is fully automated so that your network and relevant users, groups and permissions reflect your management system. As long as your management system is up-to-date, so is your network. Everyone has the access they need to the resources they use, whether that’s in Office 365, Exchange, G Suite or any of the other systems we integrate with.
What is even better, is that we set it all up for you and manage the installation. Leaving you free to concentrate on other important tasks. Every aspect is completely configurable allowing you to have a truly bespoke set up without having to spend days writing your own scripts or being limited by what other systems allow you to do.
How can Salamander Integration Suite support your school?
Enhance what you do, don’t change it
Salamander is completely customisable and fits your existing structures and follows your conventions. We work closely with you to ensure everything is reflected and if you are not ready for whole school implementation, you can test it with specific groups.
Some of the things Salamander Integration Suite does for you, aren’t possible manually. These include: creating email distribution groups based on groups in your management system; synchronising timetables; and pulling through photographs.
Salamander takes the manual processes out of managing your systems, leaving you to focus on more important things. Everyone saves time with Salamander as everything is always up-to-date and people can log in as soon as they need to start learning or teaching.
Staff know all of the pupils, and each other, as photographs from the management system display across the network. Everyone knows where they need to be as their timetables display on their Exchange or Google calendar.
Help with the move to the cloud
If you are using or planning to use Office 365 for Education or G Suite for Education then Salamander Integration Suite can also create users, groups, classrooms, timetables and more in these cloud services.
