Connect Office 365, Microsoft Teams, Google Classroom and Active Directory with Capita SIMS, Bromcom, Arbor and ScholarPack

In every school, primary or secondary, maintained or academy, the use of tools like Office 365, Microsoft Teams and Google’s 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, Bromcom, Arbor and ScholarPack to create and update users in Active Directory, Office 365, Microsoft Teams, G Suite for Education and Google Classroom. You can be sure that the users in your systems are accurate and up to date. This also supports a key responsibility under the UK 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.

How Connect Supports Multi-Academy Trusts

Within a Trust, Academies often use different systems. It might be the MIS differs, or some schools use Office 365 while others are using Google. Bringing these systems into line can make sense, but it’s often not at the top of the to-do list. Connect can work with whatever mix of systems the Trust has, growing and adapting as you do.

Flexibility
Flexibility

The ability to manage consistent processes across a Trust improves confidence in the outcomes, but also allows scarce IT resources to support a number of Academies knowing that the tasks are managed in the same way. Running as an application you control, Connect can also be run centrally improving efficiency and saving time.

Efficiency
Efficiency

Connect keeps your users, distribution lists and class groups synchronised on a daily basis. To ensure that the Trust is aware of any issues, the Trust dashboard gives you visibility of the status of each of the Academies based on the last update. This enables you to support the Academy quickly and avoid interruptions to learning.

What our customers say

“Locker have been excellent to work with, from the comprehensive features of their software to the personal, responsive and extensive hands-on technical support they provided to integrate with our existing Teams setup. I really cannot fault them – they have far exceeded my expectations. Their software saves a huge amount of time and enables the school to provide a full timetable to students whilst they are home learning.”

“Locker came highly recommended by another local Network Manager. The set up was quick and easy, and saved us time synchronising our MIS data with local Active Directory and Office 365. Connect also proved invaluable as it automated a lot of the processes that had needed to be done manually. It has saved us a lot of time completing admin tasks and has really helped to make timetables and data more accurate for students.”
