How Admissions+ Helped Me!

by | Feb 1, 2022

With census out of the way, I imagine your next big deadline is planning for National Offer Day on 1st March and we want to help you.

I’ve just joined Applicaa because I wanted to share how Admissions+ can help people like myself remove the pressure from their roles in office administration. 

So, this term instead of standing at the photocopier, burning through reams of paper, look into how Admissions+ can make your life easier, not just now but in September too – no more frustrated parents because you’ve mistyped an email into your MIS.

There are so many benefits to digitising your school’s admission form. Cost was a key factor for my Headteacher because Admissions+ saved the school money. Personally, I felt that removing the monotony of data input to my MIS was the main benefit.  I did consider Googleforms as a way to collect data from new parents / carers and spoke to colleagues who had tried this approach. Confusion seemed to ensue because physically transferring data into an MIS became a big issue with some even wanting to migrate back to paper admission forms!  At the touch of a button, Admissions+ data auto-populates all the major MIS systems including Arbor, Bromcom, Cloud-School, iSAMS and SIMS.

What’s NOT to love?

  • Be Ready – Issue new pupil data to teachers, medical teams, safeguarding leads
  • Be Efficient – Free up your time to work on additional projects eg: pupil premium
  • Be You – Remove the weight from your shoulders and de-stress

Once you’ve said “yes” all you need to do is set up your admissions form and welcome email – next year, you can even miss that step out!  The Admissions+ Customer Success Team is here to help you every step of the way and can even remote into your PC for guided support.

Admissions+ gave me control in my fast paced working environment and last year I waited in excited anticipation of National Offer Day – even finding time to answer the phone before it reached 3 rings!

Admissions+ will completely transform your life in school, it will empower you to cope with the ever-changing demands of a busy school office and all your new Yr 7 pupils will feel welcomed from the moment they step through the door.  

To find out more we are running a Year 7 Webinar on 2nd February 2022 10:30am. We’d love to welcome you – please just click to register.

Working in schools is a tough job. Having worked as a School Admin & Admissions Manager for nearly 14 years, predominantly in the primary sector, I left a job I loved to join Applicaa. Having actually used the platform I wanted to share with people like me how it could make their lives easier too. I love organising events because it provides us with the opportunity to get out and about, meet and chat with fellow school colleagues and hear how we can help them achieve their goals. One of the things that keeps me here is the fabulous people I work with – we are one great team!
