School Bytes offers a suite of school administration modules on a subscription-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, so schools can select the modules that best fit their needs. School Bytes is a fully web-based platform hosted in the AWS cloud, and syncs data directly from the Department’s 3PI data source, so no manual installation is required to start using the system.
As part of the onboarding process, schools are provided with training to familiarise staff with the system. Support delivered from our Sydney office is included as part of the SaaS subscription, which is provided through:
- a Monday to Friday (7:30am-5:30pm) over-the-phone helpdesk
- an online live chat service
- a quick-response support email (within 24 hours)
- a knowledge base with in-depth, how-to guides that explain all module functionality
Below is a list of the School Bytes modules that are available now. Our team is always working on enhancements and new modules, so this list is growing regularly.
With the School Bytes payments module, schools can easily generate and email statements of account to parents/carers, provide a direct link to online payment and send reminders.
The parent communication module allows schools to send personalised email correspondence to parents/carers and students in bulk, such as for newsletters and general notifications.
The School Bytes event management module provides seamless management of events (excursions/incursions) and professional learning applications within a digital ecosystem, from the initial submission by the creating staff member, to approval by executive staff, and online permission notes for parents.
School Bytes’ sport selection system allows students to select their sport/activity choices online and helps sport organisers manage preferences in a clear, easy-to-use format.
