Connect Office 365 and Capita SIMS


Office_365_Connect_Capita_SIMSRuler connects Microsoft Office 365 with Capita SIMS. By using the data that a school already has in their Management Information System “MIS” and automating this data with Microsoft Office 365, a school can significantly increase efficiency, accuracy and security.



Once synced with a school’s MIS, a number of the Office 365 modules can then be fully automated, including users, email distribution lists, calendar timetables, Office 365 groups and class structures.

Free sync with Microsoft’s School Data Sync “SDS”, automating Microsoft Classroom and OneNote Class Notebooks.
