XUNO school management system acquires GradeXpert
Next level analytics for school leadership teams
XUNO school management system announces the acquisition of “best in breed” analytics company GradeXpert. GradeXpert allows unprecedented versatility for tracking and comparing all aspects of school life – test scores, attendance, behavioural markers or any other metrics.
According to Group CEO Dr Kiki Tanousis: “GradeXpert is a fantastic addition to the growing cluster of expert systems that is XUNO. Schools need no longer tolerate ill-fitting mediocrity from legacy systems.”
When GradeXpert founder Anthony Sacker launched his analytical software back in 2014 he had little idea how much his user-friendly analytics tools would resonate amongst educators. “Teachers knew what they needed, but even to this day they have to work within the confines of ‘one-size-fits-all’ thinking.” Originally desktop based, GradeXpert will soon be available as a web app either fully integrated within XUNO or as a separate system.
XUNO General Manager Bernard Peh is delighted at the new partnership. “The key to XUNO’s rapid replacement of older systems has been our ability to provide significant versatility and depth – whilst helping users to retain some of their favourite capabilities. GradeXpert has a tremendous reputation in Australian education and it is great to make such a high class option more readily available to schools.”
GradeXpert joins a growing list of expert systems that are available as modules within XUNO or as standalone software: Accelerus, the nation’s leading reporting tool; SafetyTask Health and Safety, X-SWPBS Positive Behaviour Support and GS (DiscoICT) Purchase Order and Budgeting.
XUNO is a leading Australian School Management System that is a strong industry advocate for tools that adapt to the specific needs of each school. Alongside its 20 internal modules, XUNO links with multiple expert systems and allows for connectivity with any other school software either by API or hard coding. Most significant SIS, timetabling and learning management systems have tight links with the XUNO environment.
GradeXpert is a leading provider of student focussed analytics. The software has a strong following amongst schools that place a high value upon being able to visualise student data across multiple markers and over multiple time frames.
