Many Multi-Academy Trusts are making the most of the opportunities of being part of a larger team, sharing resources, staff and facilities whilst looking forward to a stronger future as a result. However, when smart processes aren’t implemented to bridge physical distances, operating across multiple sites can prove tricky.
The Cloud is a great example of how modern technology can improve efficiency whilst paving the way for a sustainable future for your staff and students. Cloud technology isn’t utilised by only the biggest multi-national organisations; in fact, the Cloud could be the answer to many of your organisational headaches. At PS Financials, we’ve seen first-hand how multi-academy trusts can utilise the Cloud to build a collaborative approach, extinguish security risks, support continuity planning and more.
When it comes to the school budget, Cloud technology can support sustainable and strategic financial planning. The PS CLOUD protects against unexpected IT support and energy costs with a monthly subscription fee that your finance team can plan for. This means you can rest easy in the knowledge that no unavoidable but unplanned costs for software upgrades, fixes or maintenance are going to impact your budget!
Over recent years, a number of schools have fallen victim to cyber-attacks and data breaches. Cloud technology greatly reduces security risks, ensuring your work, data, staff and students are protected against unpredictable crises. Whether there’s an issue with power supply, a natural disaster or staffing changes, stakeholder data is protected in a secure environment.
Even in the event of a complete loss of site, the PS CLOUD provides a secure online backup solution. Our customers benefit from a dedicated server environment with no shared databases. Since its introduction, our CLOUD solution has provided 100% scheduled uptime, giving our customers the peace of mind they need to operate confidently on a daily basis. The PS CLOUD provides a level of security, resilience and continuity beyond the reach of many organisations – when it comes to your Trust, PS CLOUD provides the security you need at an enterprise level.
From day to day, week to week, the chances are you are working across multiple sites, alongside different teams at various schools. Previously, this may have resulted in countless headaches; you may have dedicated hours into pre-planning and thinking ahead in an effort to avoid any access-related mishaps. Cloud technology enables you to connect to your work whenever, wherever, providing the flexible working practices you need to run a thriving multi-academy trust. With the PS CLOUD, staff can seamlessly access files, applications and data wherever they are (with an internet connection), supporting a collaborative approach across all sites.
Whatever the future has in hold for your growing Trust, the PS CLOUD can support you. Cloud technology enables great continuity planning, building for a sustainable future by utilising the very best tech-infrastructure.
