A full online search and automated stock-take capabilities are available and biometrics can be used to speed up the identification and borrowing process.

Schools have goals of improving student reading and knowledge skills, and to manage this goal, the media centre control and monitor the borrowing of media material to students and educators. Scadsys has the capability, at any time, to report on material borrowed by student and therefore can identify noncompliance to set goals of reading. If the Scadsys Dashboard is used, additional management information is available, i.e. most read books, number of books read by student, books not borrowed, etc.

  • The reservation module makes provision for reserving books and notifications when the reserved books are returned
  • All standard media statistics can be displayed on request
  • Text books and eBooks issued to students can be managed the same way media books are managed


Scadsys Timetable is probably the most important single event in the school or college year. The completed timetable may well rule the lives of hundreds of students and staff members for the 200 days in the year, period-by-period, bell-by-bell. Such a powerful tool may easily make or break educators and teaching situations or may easily distort the curriculum philosophy of the institution. The Scadsys Timetable will build a timetable with the best quality; a timetable that is enabling, not restrictive, so that the educators may develop to the full and achieve the curricular aims.

Timetabling has been called the art of compromise. From a given set of data there are likely to be many possible solutions, each involving compromises, which detract from the ideal. Clearly institutions wish to obtain the solution with the fewest, least important compromises. This solution will give a timetable with the best quality; a timetable that is enabling, not restrictive, so that the educators may develop to the full and achieve the curricular aims.

The activity that is usually called timetabling (the fitting of classes/groups, educators, rooms, subjects into particular times of the week) should more properly be called scheduling. It is however only part of the overall process. The Scadsys Timetabling process entails:

  • Curriculum planning: The curriculum plan consists of number of periods, subjects and teaching resources derived from the aims and resources of the institution
  • Choices analysis: The feasibly testing of subject choices against the limitations of the institution, i.e. classroom sizes, number of educators, student subject choices, etc.
  • Educator analysis: The feasibly testing of teaching resources against the subject choices offered/allowed at the institution
  • Scheduling: The integration of the 5 variables: educators, subjects, classes/groups, rooms and time into a viable pattern.

The Scadsys Timetable allows for class and group scheduling, separately or combined. This means that students in a class attend a period as a class, but split into subject groups where choice subjects are offered.

The Timetable is available to students, parents and educators in Scadsys Administration, CRM, Web and Mobility and on all device types: smart phones, tablets and laptops. Students can enquire the timetable from their smart phones to determine when and where the next class is. Modifications to the timetable reflect to all students and educators immediately.
