South Dartmoor Community College wanted to free its teachers to work in a range of environments outside the classroom. Groupcall Emerge, an application that uses the Windows Azure platform, gives them secure access to the school's Management Information System (MIS) on mobile devices. Whether they're in the classroom or on a field trip, they can complete registration faster and contact parents quickly in an emergency. The process can be completed quickly, teachers often take registration in each lesson. School head teachers are using the additional information to spot trends in attendance across academic years and in tutor groups.
