Our Cloud Solution helps keep school IT costs to a minimum when implementing our range of FasTrak applications, including cashless catering and attendance monitoring.

Instead, FasTrak is operated from within our Cloud Solution, taking responsibility for the server and network required to run this service on a school’s system. We handle all implementation and maintenance of the server and its applications, and let schools get on with enjoying the benefits of our solutions and nothing else.

With the increasing cost of maintaining IT equipment along with the expertise required to manage these, many organisations are looking at cloud solutions to provide its services.

How our applications are delivered via the Cloud Solution

cloud-services-02

Our Cloud Solution manages the servers running the software, rather than the servers being located on-premise at the school. This provides all the benefits of our solutions, delivered via a secure internet connection, without the burden of extra loads on the network or additional equipment to maintain.

Support is also made incredibly simple with our FasTrak Cloud Solution, which includes an annual support and maintenance contract so our expert team can ensure everything runs smoothly and securely. This relieves the burden on school IT administrators, reducing costs and ensuring continued delivery of our services.

High resilience and high performance servers managed and maintained by BioStore provides extensive recovery and back-up capabilities to ensure school data is never lost. Our Cloud Solution also includes strong cyber security & encryption processes to ensure data is always securely protected.

Cloud Access & Connectivity

cloud-services-03

All school departments can access and manage the system across a range of devices. With RemoteApp technology, laptops, tablets and smartphones can connect to the system with a secure log-in via a dedicated web-portal. Access to the Cloud Solution is secured with two-factor authentication or by using our industry-leading biometric solutions.

Staff log-in securely to access information they require, whether to run reports or manage daily meal requirements and menus. Parents and students are also able to access key services via the secure web portal from their PC’s, laptops and smartphones for meal pre-ordering or account top-up.

Our Cloud Solution also connects with a school’s Management Information System. Databases are automatically populated with the information held on the school’s MIS, ensuring FSM and UIFSM entitlements are relayed to FasTrak ready for uptake.

Linking with the school’s administration servers also provides write-back to the attendance system.
