What is The Scomis Desktop?

The Scomis Desktop is a secure cloud-based system that automatically synchronises with your school’s management information system. It allows teachers to quickly perform core tasks such as taking registers, assigning achievement and behaviour points, and recording detentions.

The Scomis Desktop is simple to learn and easy to use. Teachers can quickly input seating plans which can be customised for individual lessons, and view timetables and reports to spot trends relating to attendance, behaviour and achievement.

It can be accessed anywhere, anytime with any modern browser on a tablet sized device or PC, making it the ideal solution for teachers working outside the classroom or who want to work from home to complete reports, assessments and mark sheets.

In addition, your school’s other third-party applications (such as homework or library systems) can integrate into The Scomis Desktop eco-system to take advantage of single sign-on.
