12 REASONS TO
We've never wanted to do good work. If we're going to
sign our names to something we believe it should be
thevery best work of our lives. It takes dedication and a
willingness to begin again more times than you can
count, until something's right - until it's perfect.
Only then does it deserve to exist. Only then are we
willing to sign our name to it.
ICT & DATA SERVICES GROUP
YOU ARE WONDERFULLY UNIQUE.
We have always believed that every school is unique. You have unique pupils, unique staff and face a unique set of challenges. That's why we don't believe the 'off the shelf' model works in education. We don't believe you should change yourself to fit Tracker+... instead it fits you.
We passionately believe bespoke is better.
Our 'no limits on innovation' design has given birth to some truly remarkable tools in Tracker+. From our revolutionary Pupil Progress Meeting sheets to our game changing Detective we lead the way in offering amazing, innovative and insightful analysis of your data in ways that people never thought were possible.
ONE CLICK IMPORT.
Schools told us that updating their pupil tracking system should be easy, super easy. We agree. No copying and pasting, no long processing times, no exporting separate marksheets for everything.
The import process for Tracker+ is a single click and 15 second wait.
PASSIONATE ABOUT OUR PRODUCT.
We're passionate about every aspect of our product; we care about every detail, every colour, every icon, every click, every printout, everytime we pick up the phone and say, "How can we help?". Everything. And it doesn't matter just some of the time. It matters every single time. This passion for what we do is because we love what we do.
We know that teachers need to be able to print all their analyses; some of our competitors say that onscreen is 'good enough'. We disagree.
It should never be a battle to print your analyses and they should look right when you do. No print screening, no sticking your broadsheets back together. Everything prints just as it should.
ONE SCHOOL, ONE SYSTEM.
From day one Tracker+ has had Early Years, Key Stage 1 and 2 integrated within a single unified system. We believed that nobody wanted to use two separate, unlinked systems. Many naysayers came out of the woodwork and said it would never work and it's so gratifying to see that instead it's one of the greatest things we ever did.
In our minds if you click on something and it takes 10 seconds to respond then that's about 5 seconds too long. Speed is a crucial part of design. That's why even the complex analyses in Tracker+ are produced in 5 seconds and most are instantaneous.
NO REFRESH BUTTONS.
We believe technology is at its very best when it's invisible - when you're never even aware of it working. You won't find any refresh or update buttons in Tracker+. That would be a shortcut. Instead we designed Tracker+ to intelligently sense any calculations that need to be made and to perform them automatically.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
We provide complimentary technical support with Tracker+. No annual maintenance fees or callout charges. And in the unlikely event that something goes wrong we will put it right - no questions or additional bills.
We see customer service as part of our product and it has to match the quality of Tracker+.
NOT JUST ABOUT SAVING TIME.
Schools that use Tracker+ save a lot of time. It's lightning fast, easy to use and never frustrating. But it's never been just about saving them time. We wanted to help the gain a better insight into their data than ever before and this, combined with the time they save, means they can be more focused on what their data tells them.
We believe complexity is a shortcut. Designing something that is truly simple is never easy. It takes dedication and a willingness to say, "I can do better than this." We spent over two years designing, simplifying and refining every aspect of Tracker+. Two years perfecting it. Only then did it deserve to exist. The result is a system that is leading the way in redefining the experience of what a pupil tracking system should be.
USED BY SCHOOLS INTERNATIONALLY.
We don't have a big marketing department. Instead we believe that if you put all your passion and effort into designing an amazing product and take care of your customers then your business will grow.
In just 5 years, Tracker+ is used by nearly 1 in 3 primary schools in Sheffield (where we started), but also by schools in North Yorkshire, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, London and the United Arab Emirates. And they've never looked back.
