SIMS software connects a schoolâ€™s senior leadership team to the classroom, the classroom to the home and the home to the school. It is a much more powerful tool when images of pupils are uploaded to the database. School Photographers using the Pics Checkout Application are able to produce the images to the precise specification to support the Sims batch photo importer facility with accuracy and ease.

Lemon Zebra is a boutique school photography company offering schools a highly bespoke service. We were looking for a way to improve our administrative work flow and the team at Pics Checkout has bent over backwards to develop their existing platform to become a robust system for us.
Our schools vary from local primaries to those with large numbers of overseas boarders which in the past proved quite a challenge. We were using a proof card system provided by a lab which meant we were tied to their products and also to their unique numbering.
The ease with which we can now call up pupil information, personalise proof cards, e-mail parent logins, use the e-commerce system specifically written for schools but branded to look like it is ours, makes it a winning system for us. We can instantly review sales statistics and generate Sims discs and it also enables us to shoot later in the term as we can market direct to the parents.
We have recently picked up a large contract after demonstrating the versatility of the system. The school had particular preferences regarding packs which we can tailor to their requirements.
If you are looking for a way to achieve the greatest value from your administrative efforts , we would recommend you consider this system.
