Connect Office 365, Microsoft Teams, G Suite for Education and Active Directory with Capita SIMS

In every school, primary or secondary, maintained or academy, the use of tools like Office 365, Microsoft Teams and G Suite for Education are central to teaching and learning.

Every school must have a way to create, manage and remove users giving them access to email, documents and online storage. Staff and students join and leave all through the year and their data must be properly protected and securely accessed from the primary data source, the MIS system.

Locker Connect enables the data from Capita SIMS to create and update users in Active Directory, Office 365, Microsoft Teams and G Suite for Education. You can be sure that the users in your systems are accurate and up to date. This also supports a key responsibility under the General Data Protection Regulation.

This integration creates opportunities to find additional efficiencies within the school, including pushing timetables into students’ Outlook or Google calendars and the full automation of Microsoft Teams down to class level.

For Further Education, Connect also supports Capita UNIT-e and other MIS’s that support the creation of SQL tables.
