The complete school information system
SENTRAL Education believes that every school is important.
“Schools educate and nurture our most precious resource,” Sentral director Geoff Byers said.
“We help schools provide the best education for every child in their care by developing great software that revolutionizes student management.”
Using Sentral, staff have ready access to data that informs teaching and learning, student and school administration through a comprehensive suite of 36 interrelated modules.
With Sentral, data is aggregated to paint a clear picture; it’s not isolated in different places or unconnected systems.
“Integrated data reduces redundancy and replication, saving staff valuable time and making it available to all that need it, anywhere, anytime and on any device,” Mr Byers said.
“The Sentral solution addresses the data demands of today and into the future as it continues to grow.
“Inbuilt reporting filters that use selections from drop down lists mean school staff can get the data they need at any time without the need for specialist computing skills or a dedicated database administrator.
“Anyone that can use an internet browser can use Sentral, our schools say ‘it just works’.”
Ready access to meaningful data means staff spend less time collecting and collating data, leaving more time to identify trends and take action.
Schools can also engage the community with targeted information to parents and students via the student and parent portals and native mobile app.
Historical data is always available within Sentral, allowing trend analysis over time for a student, class, year or the entire school.
This becomes an increasingly powerful resource to inform executive planning and practice.
“All modules are configurable to meet local needs because we know that every school has unique requirements,” Mr Byers said.
“We also provide unsurpassed integration with other systems so schools can choose to have an end-to-end Sentral system or integrate existing corporate or enterprise systems with Sentral for seamless data flow that eliminates double data entry.
“Sentral has powerful purpose-built solutions for single schools, multi-campus schools or enterprise groups, delivered in a scalable and robust system that can be hosted on premise or via the cloud.”
The Sentral system consists of a broad range of ‘modules’ each designed to manage the data and functions related to specific areas of school, teacher and student administration.
The modular system affords some flexibility, whereby modules can be turned on or off or replaced by an external system using a variety of integration points.
Sentral is 100 per cent Australian owned and developed, so customisation is also possible to enrich a particular school or group deployment.
“Our vision is to empower students and teachers to be the best they can,” Mr Byers said.
“The Sentral suite as a product and our dedicated teams of developers, education consultants, customer relations and help-desk staff work together to make that happen.
“That’s why we are the trusted solution chosen by 1800 schools around Australia.
