Doing more with SIMS ID

Did you know that SIMS ID has a range of features that can be purchased allowing SIMS ID to create and manage accounts in Microsoft Office 365, Google, and increasing range of cloud based partners and even local AD accounts?

What else can I do with SIMS ID?

SIMS ID comes in three variants to allow schools to choose whether they want to manage their cloud services with integration into their local network (standard version) or just their cloud services (Light version). Entry level is only available to Hosted SIMS customers.

The table below highlights the differences between the versions:

The benefits of upgrading to SIMS ID or SIMS ID (Light)

*For Staff and Pupils: *

▪ You only need to remember a single username and password for all your services

▪ Ability for users to securely reset and manage their own passwords

▪ No need to re-enter passwords once you’ve logged into your network device

▪ Customisable Launchpad providing simplified, consistent access to your online services from any device

▪ Your SIMS timetable visible in your Office 365 calendar

*For IT managers: *

  • Simple management of user identity across local and online services via a single admin portal

  • Automatically pulls your data from SIMS to create your SIMS IDs in your chosen format

  • Automatically provisions users and groups into integrated cloud services including Office 365 or Google
