24 May
Using Data to Supercharge the Growth of Your Trust
09:00 - 10:00 GMT
60 minutes

About this webinar:

Does your trust plan to grow within the next 12 months? Recent research found that 78% of trusts do.

Data, when used properly, has the power to inform decision making, improve operational efficiencies, empower your staff to do a great job and improve the outcomes for pupils.

However, as trusts grow, maintaining a collective view of data and what is happening across the group, becomes increasingly difficult.

The newly launched IRIS Central gives trusts a centralized view of data across their schools, whichever MIS they use. Powerful, up-to-date analytics allow trusts to spot trends more easily, make timely interventions, and support growth initiatives.

Join us on Tuesday 24th May, at 9:00am with Tom Kershaw (Education Market Specialist) and Nicholas Clark (Senior Product Manager), as they explore how IRIS Central can fundamentally change and improve the way trust leaders run their business. This free webinar will cover: 
➼ The role of data in growing your trust

➼ How IRIS Central helps you overcome barriers to growth and scale quickly and efficiently

➼ Bridging the gap as new schools join your trust, by getting a handle on their data quickly and easily

The foundation to your clients is to support their businesses by fulfilling their compliance and advisory needs. But what if you could earn your own practice additional income by re-selling top class HR software to your clients as well?

Almost every business is in need of Payroll and HR. What if you could deepen your client relationships by offering them fully cloud based HR software and add another string to your bow at the same time?
