Solve the data challenge in your school

We understand the challenges that schools face - schools are data rich envronments, but they are short on time and often have limited technical resources.

Our Microsoft Power BI service for schools combines technical expertise and education domain knowledge. It's tailormade to get you maximum value from Microsoft Power BI in an education context. Our service offer includes:

  1. Expert advice on how to organise data across different systems for simpler reporting.

    Find out how to consolidate and integrate data from different systems so you can then report on that data in Power BI.

  2. A fast and friendly report authoring service.

    Kickstart your Power BI reports and dashboards. When we write reports for you we also explain how the reports were built - knowledge is cascaded to your team.

  3. Setup and configuration of the Power BI online service.

    Take full advantage of Power BI to create a data driven culture across your school. We show you how to use the Power BI online service to share interactive reports and dashboards with colleagues - staff, school governors and other stakeholders.

  4. Training for school leaders, data managers and other staff.

    Develop an achievable Power BI roadmap for your school. Begin authoring interactive reports and dashboards.
