Schools are increasingly using electronic documents in day-to-day administration and communication yet these items often reside on user PCs and in complex folders rather than being managed by the SIMS file plan.
RECORDLINKwriter by Cohesion Software allows SIMS users to quickly and easily save their Microsoft Office documents to SIMS where they become organised, network accessible and part of the school's disaster recovery plan.
Why choose RECORDLINKwriter?

Organise and distribute documents more effectively and securely.
Improve the quality of your information

Back up your files
Documents are included in the daily SIMS back-up, which are added to the school disaster recovery programme.
RECORDLINKwriter (Cohesion Software) features
You are guided by a logical wizard to save or open documents to and from SIMS. The interface reflects SIMS with the look and feel.
Documents are saved to SIMS and appear in the student record as usual for normal use or with RECORDLINK products.
Save documents to multiple pupil records
Documents can be saved to single or multiple pupil records using bespoke lists of pupils, user defined groups, academic class or year group and more.
Create database entries on the fly
Database entries such as behaviours, achievements and medical conditions can be created without the need to log in to SIMS.
Apply to all
Where files are saved to multiple pupil records, you can also create multiple database entries using the ‘apply to all’ feature.
SIMS permissions apply
RECORDLINKwriter reads user permissions from SIMS so users have identical permissions without additional IT burden.
