Many Multi Academy Trusts (MATs) don’t realise the impact a robust Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution, like Able+ Cloud could have on performance and efficiency.
When a number of different schools form a trust, there will always be challenges to overcome such as aligning IT systems, cultures and processes. However, the benefits to schools joining a trust are well documented; resource sharing, cross-fertilisation of knowledge, strong leadership, reduced costs, centralised services and so on…
Using an IAM solution provides untold benefits in overcoming both the challenges and optimising the benefits in MATs. Here are just some of the ways an IAM solution can help your trust run more efficiently, improve performance and save money.
No more lost passwords! Pupils, staff, teachers and other school contacts can gain access to all their apps and resources with one single set of log in credentials.
Able+ cloud integrates with 1,000s of external apps including O365 and G Suite.
Reduced costs, i.e single contracts for software/licences and increased efficiencies from unified processes. It also helps facilitate a trust-wide brand and vision.
Onboard supply or temporary teachers quickly and efficiently by automating access to the apps and resources they need.
If you have staff who work across multiple roles and/or sites, Able+ Cloud lets you manage their access and permissions automatically.
If everyone is using the same systems, support and compliance training becomes easier and more efficient.
Able+ Cloud offers a central platform for resource sharing, best practice and cross school support.This also has the added bonus of improving internal relationships.
In a MAT environment you will have schools with different performance, ratings and cultures. Having a solid IAM strategy in place makes it easier for cross-fertilisation of knowledge and processes, meaning schools can help each other optimise overall performance.
Gain instant visibility into usage and reports, making it easy to identity areas for improved efficiency.
