@Schools, the educational supplier portal generated a great deal of interest at the Education Show 05, with both suppliers and school staff being shown the benefits of the system.
Integrated with SIMS FMS v6.76 and above, the @Schools portal allows teachers to place their orders online with no need for bursars/administrators to rekey the data. Approved orders are sent directly to the chosen suppliers. The savings in paperwork can be hugely beneficial to the suppliers whilst teachers have the benefit of being able to order from their favourite suppliers from one central website.
The winner of the competition to "win a grand" was Walsall Primary, who have won up to £1000 worth of goods by trying out the new system to order from suppliers listed on @Schools.
