What is Arbor?

Arbor MIS easily manages your school’s daily admin, records important student information, creates intuitive reports and sees everything you need at a glance – so you and your staff can get on and focus where it matters most.

MIS for MATs and Groups brings all your schools together so you can instantly see how everyone’s getting on, and jump in if you need to. Use Arbor’s dashboards to see your schools’ key stats, and follow up directly with stakeholders or students through the platform.

Why Arbor for your school?

Arbor brings all your student and staff data together for quicker, smarter insight. School data is usually siloed across multiple systems, taking staff hours a week to pull together. Arbor helps to bring all core student and staff data together, allowing you to report on all key metrics from one system.

Arbor’s cloud-based system can help reduce the number of systems your school needs, saving your school up to 30% on your total system cost. And there are no pesky hidden extras like patches, servers or upgrades to worry about.

It is easy to use, reducing training costs and allowing staff to get on with their day. Arbor also allows schools to define workflows and automate repetitive admin tasks, giving your staff back their precious time and increasing capacity.
