The Live Edit

When Will is out of the office he is usually visiting one of our many schools to provide training and assistance in key areas - I'm sure many of you have met him already!

However, today Will is working with our film company on a live edit of our upcoming videos. This includes videos on how to use popular areas within SchoolBase.

Will has confirmed the films are looking good, we will have these being displayed on our large screen at BETT next week so if you are attending then stop by to have a look and to meet some of the Furlong team.

Friday 13th at Furlong

We have had a slightly different start to the day compared to what we are used to …

No it’s not the light sprinkling of snow covering the carpark. We’ve had a film crew in the office this morning, filming a few members of the Furlong team, explaining what makes Furlong the perfect MIS for your school – so watch this space!

The New Quick Launch Gadget

Following on from yesterday’s news …

We are now in the process of implementing a Quick Launch Gadget, available in the upcoming release of SchoolBase!

Just like the HTML version, the Quick Launch Pad will be on your dashboard allowing you to access features within SchoolBase with just a single click.

You can choose which icons you want in your Quick Launch Pad, this can be as few or as many as you would like.

Have you taken advantage of the Quick Launch Bar?

Have you set up the new Quick Launch Bar on your dashboard?

Adapt your SchoolBase dashboard with custom HTML to give you a quick launch toolbar – where all your most popular features can be accessed immediately with just one click. The unlimited number of icon spaces means you’ll never have to go looking anywhere other than the dashboard again!

Last month we sent out an email campaign advising SchoolBase clients of this feature and the response has been extremely positive, with a large number of schools contacting our support desk to find out more.

Visit us at BETT!

BETT 2017 is only a matter of weeks away and is fast approaching.

This year we will be launching our new music and performing arts MIS, Maestro, as well as showcasing our new stand.

If you are attending make sure you visit us on stand C393 for an initial chat and demonstration of how SchoolBase, Maestro and FeeMaster could benefit your school.

If you are already a client of Furlong then please stop by to meet some of the team and find out what is new to the system.

Welcome Abingdon House School

We would like to welcome Abingdon House School to Furlong who are currently in the process of transferring their school MIS over to SchoolBase.

Abingdon House School are part of the Cavendish group and are situated in London,  within walking distance from Regents Park. In a refurbished Victorian School on four levels, the school has the facilities to educate 90 boys and girls aged between 5-13 years of age.

Have you heard about Maestro yet?

We have recently launched our new music and preforming arts management software, Maestro, which replaces the older, dated version, Chorale.

Many new schools have joined Maestro, and some of our existing Chorale users are taking the steps to implement Maestro as their music and performing arts MIS and are already seeing the benefits.

The software encompasses easy instrumental lesson scheduling, powerful communication tools, calendar and resource integration and works on any device!

Happy New Year

It is our first day back in the office after the festive break, and we would like to start the year by wishing all schools a Happy New Year from the Furlong team!

Our offices and phone lines are now open as per the normal office hours
