Intrinsiq Support: Why should a good School Management system be cloud based?

Published Bernice on Wednesday, September 8, 2021

Cloud Based School Management System

Intrinsiq has been a cloud-based school management system for well over a decade. In fact, when it was designed back then, it was always intended to be on the cloud. Cloud based systems are highly efficient and also effective for a variety of reasons including increased capacity, scalability, functionality, as well as reduced maintenance and cost for computer infrastructure or members of staff. In today's article we will be looking at more of these reasons.

Why should schools move their management systems to the cloud?

Transferring data onto the cloud is something that many schools seem to be very interested in doing, and rightly so. There are various reasons for this, including the following:

  • It allows businesses to act faster
  • It turns business data into business intel
  • It helps marketing teams to find emerging trends at the click of a button
  • It is safe
  • It ensures that data is not lost
  • It helps multi-centre businesses operate more smoothly

So if there are so many valid reasons, why haven’t some schools shifted to cloud already?

Unfortunately, not all school management systems are cloud-based, and in some cases it is very difficult for these service providers to change their business model to a cloud-based one. 

Another reason that schools mention when asked why they’ve waited so long to make the change, the answer we often get is that when switching from one provider to the other, schools would ideally like the transition to be as smooth as possible, and they are often afraid that this will not be the case, and that they will end up losing precious data. 

Your data is absolutely safe with us at Intrinsiq

The Intrinsiq system ensures that all of the school’s data from the previous school management system is stored safely before transitioning to the new cloud-based system. And even when that happens, Intrinsiq guarantees safe storage of data.

Here’s how Intrinsiq stands out as a school management system service provider:

  1. Intrinsiq has been providing cloud-based systems since 2011
  2. Intrinsiq uses its own proprietary framework to build and customise client systems. This means that Intrinsiq does not rely on any other providers’ software for their system, we customise everything in-house, making it more secure for the client.
  3. Intrinsiq cloud-based systems are true cloud services. This means that, unlike other providers, Intrinsiq does not have versions that require a remote desktop connection to a system that is hosted remotely.
  4. Intrinsiq built its systems from the ground up. This means that, unlike other providers, Intrinsiq did not merely add cosmetic changes to off-the-shelf server systems. We built it ourselves- from international education for international education, thus providing truly scalable systems.
  5. Intrinsiq can integrate with most other cloud apps such as accounts (Xero, Quickbooks, Quicken, Datev and so forth). We have various clients who have had the need to do this and Intrinsiq has delivered without fail.
  6. And finally, and most importantly, all data is automatically backed up across distributed data centres.

Did you know that we’re also giving 9 months FREE hosting right now?
