Using texts for communicating with teachers, parents and students

Reminders are great for sending gentle nudges for tasks that need to be done in the future. However when faced with an exhausting list of recipients, this quickly becomes a very daunting and tedious undertaking. Sending Texts in Ensemble is perfect for all reminders that need to be done quickly and easily making very light work of this, especially during busy periods such as when schools re-open.

Use texts to remind:

1.       Pupils that have instruments on hire that need returning in a week.

2.       Pupils that have exams looming

3.       Parents that will have invoices sent near the end of the term

4.       Teachers that have timesheets which need completing
All these actions can be performed by:

Selecting the appropriate Record Card > Communicate > Text individual or a selection

#Security How safe is your information? #Ensemble365iscoming

Saving your information on a laptop or a local server can sometimes be perceived as safer. In reality, storing information locally can be dangerous, if a fire or another disaster occurred the information would be lost and generally bacing up information needs to be done manually. Staff can occasionally lose laptops along with all of the information that is stored. These problems are heightened when we are talking about the security of pupil information.

Instead when an organisation moves its data to the cloud it means that this information can be accessed anywhere, at any time. Cloud computing is designed to improve your organisation’s defences, ultimately because of the huge amount of money that is spent on securing their data centre infrastructure, and keeping their customers' data safe. Cloud computing means that organisations can benefit from economies of scale, they can afford to invest in the latest solutions and preventative approaches, whereas relatively few individual businesses can to the same degree.

#CloudforAdmin. Everything is in one place. Ensemble 365 is coming

THE key message from the Henley Review was more communication. As a result 122 hubs were formed across England to improve communication between different music education providers. Ultimately communication between different team members is just as, if not more important. By allowing different team members to be able to update and access information from wherever they are means that the organisation benefits from real time information and therefore gives decisions makers the best tools.

#CloudforAdmin: Working outside office hours. Ensemble 365 is coming.

Many staff members are restricted to working within the remit of the office opening hours.

With the cloud based technology that is offered by Ensemble365, staff have the ability to access their information through a highly secure server, anywhere in the world. Ensemble 365 gives your team the flexibility of working anywhere and at any time.
