Firstly, thanks to all those schools that came to see us at the AMCSS/JMB Conference on Monday 17th September. It was super to see so many of you there and we hope that you enjoyed the conference as much as we did.
Principal’s excited at JMB Conference by Advanced Learning’s long-term commitment
It was great to talk to so many of you about Advanced Learning’s continued commitment to Irish Schools in terms of our future development and roadmap. We’re continuing to build and strengthen our existing relationship with the DES by working closely with them to ensure P-POD compatibility, managing any potential changes before and after December 2013, and more. Facility will continue to be available beyond the end of 2013 but many shared our excitement at Advanced Learning’s 20 million Euro investment in Progresso the innovative new Management Information System for Irish Schools.
ePortal on iPad creates a buzz at JMB Conference!
As you may or may not be aware Release 12.2 ensured that Facility ePortal is now compatible with iPad. We were both wandering round the conference with an iPad demonstrating how the ePortal functionality works with iPad and it created a real buzz! Teachers told us they were really excited about the being able to patrol the corridors with the power of ePortal at their fingertips!
Many of you shared your comments about the benefits of having ePortal including John Mulvihill, St Michaels College, Co Kerry who was delighted to tell us:
“We installed ePortal last year and we are delighted with it. It has opened up a new communication channel for our parents, teachers & staff.”
