5 EFFICIENT WAYS THAT LILY HELPS SCHOOLS WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER

At Lily, we look to create efficiencies for schools and ensure our solutions ensure they work smarter, not harder!

1. Integration with SIMS

Our phone solutions integrate with SIMS which is used by most schools in the UK. The integration of our phone system with SIMS means when your phone rings, you can see the relevant pupil associated with the phone number and the parent or carer who is ringing. This means that no matter who is calling, the receptionist is equipped with the knowledge they need to deal with the enquiry quickly.

2. Improve your absence process

Using our auto attendant functionality, we can set up an absence line on your phone system that automatically diverts to a voicemail message that can then be emailed to you. This saves hours each day as you don’t have to waste time answering calls regarding absences; instead they can all be collected in a mailbox for review. This also helps keep a much clearer record than phone calls and relying on your receptionist to take down the message.

3. Manage your after-school club

We are here to support you create a high-quality service which is safe and caring. We can setup a separate line for your after-school service allowing for easy communication between leaders and parents.

4. Easily keep in communication with your caretaker

Do you find it difficult at times to contact your caretaker, as rightfully so they are out and about doing their job? Our mobile applications mean your caretaker can communicate on the go, whether they are in the garden or the grounds working. We can even connect your door phone to your caretaker’s mobile so that when people are visiting, the call goes directly to them so they can interact with any visitors to the school.

5. Seamless communication on school trips

The remote applications can also be used by teachers on school trips, allowing seamless communication.

These are five ways Lily supports schools in being more efficient, all because we want to help streamline tasks and reduce pressure where we can to give teachers and senior staff, time back as we believe wellbeing is a priority especially in schools.
