Proven.

Based on 40 years research.

The iAbacus™ guides you through a proven self-evaluation and improvement process developed by John Pearce during 40 years of working in schools.

Simple.

Slide the beads and away you go.

With over 15 years experience in creating web tools for schools - we know the importance of keeping it simple. The iAbacus™ is the perfect balance between simplicity and functionality.

Loved.

It's more than just 'software'.

People tell us they "love" the iAbacus™ and the way we work - and they’re not afraid to tell others...

Powerful.

High impact, visual reports.

As you follow the interactive, step-by-step process, the iAbacus™ will automatically build your visual reports and planning documents to share with others.

Inclusive.

One simple tool for everyone.

The iAbacus™ helps everyone in school self-evaluate, analyse factors that help or hinder - and plan actions to improve.

Customisable.

Any criteria - you choose.

The iAbacus™ can be completely customised to suit your school. Use your own bespoke criteria or definitions provided by external organisations and national inspection bodies.

Collaborative.

Enjoy the power of collaboration.

Invite any of your colleagues to access or contribute to your iAbacus™ - it’s quick, easy and included in your license at no extra charge.

Supported.

Passionate support by experts.

You probably won’t need any support at all, but if you do - our team can provide it on-site or over-the-phone. Plus there’s live help and video guidance just one click away.

Accessible.

Anytime, anywhere, any device.

All you need is a modern web-browser on a PC, Mac or iPad. There’s nothing to download, install or re-configure -
you don’t even need a separate app to use it on an iPad.

Hosted.

Your data is safe and secure.

Everything is hosted on our ultra-fast servers, virus protected and backed up regularly. Unlike other systems, we don’t share your information with others in school - we leave that to you.
