Deceptively simple

iAbacus® is based on a literal abacus – you simply slide a bead to make your judgement then follow the step-by-step process to add your evidence, analysis and action planning. There are no complex dashboards or mind-boggling menus –  you won’t even need a user manual or training!

Easy collaboration

iAbacus® makes it remarkably easy to collaborate. Each person drags a bead to represent the effectiveness of their SMSC provision. One bead for each department or school in your trust. Behind each bead they add their evidence, analysis – and action planning.
