The ultimate flexibility for trust-wide tracking
Multi-academy trusts (MATs) require staff and contractors to work across multiple sites to provide better allocation of resources for individual schools within the trust. Our MAT module enables communication between separate InVentry systems to share data, information, and resources in real time.

How InVentry makes Multi Academy Trusts safer
InVentry Central allows MATs to easily sign staff members out of their previous location automatically, based on where they are signed in. It also allows you to send DBS checks between sites to ensure any visitors or contractors are allowed on-site everywhere within the trust.
With unlimited MIS integrations, the ability to pre-book large groups of visitors and allow staff to roam freely between sites in the MAT, InVentry is the perfect solution for any Multi Academy Trust. Take a look how it could work for you and book a demo today!
The number one fully integrated safeguarding solution for MATs
With many staff members and visitors signing in at different locations throughout Multi-Academy Trusts, InVentry gives you full clarity of who is on-site and at which location. By providing staff members with ID badges – and visitors with easily identifiable badges – when on-site, InVentry also gives MATs the high level of security they need.
Staff Sign In
Staff can sign in between individual schools with automatic sign out from individual systems.
Contractors who do not exist in one specific school can be added centrally through InVentry. This is then fed back to each individual system.
Individual InVentry systems can have different MIS integrations and can still flow information between InVentry school systems.
All individual InVentry systems can be customised using different integrations, modules and settings, all whilst still providing trust-wide access and reporting.
Pre-book large groups of visitors and send them customisable invitations before they arrive on-site, directly through InVentry.
Organise trust-wide trips with the peace of mind that InVentry’s Anywhere App has all the information you need, stored in your smart device!
Create advanced reports and display the results on admin dashboards as live widgets.
Share contractor, visitor and pupil information between the InVentry system across all sites with individual systems. DBS checks and contractor checks have never been easier to track!
Simple, secure tracking for assets and budgeting
Audit & Compliance is a cloud-based solution to asset management. With our sign-in integration, all sites within your trust are able to sign assets in and out of individual locations and you can track where the assets are and who they are associated with.
Store all important documents within Audit & Compliance. From exam-board information to warranties, Audit & Compliance’s cloud based option overtakes ring binders!
Allow Audit & Compliance to help you when it comes to trust-wide budgeting. Easily see which assets will need updating, replacing or fixing – giving you the ability to format your budget plan!
Scan the barcode on the door of the room you’re wanting to audit and see all the assets associated with that room. Can’t find the asset? See who was the last one to use it with our sign-in integration!
Create your own views with our widgets! Each trust-wide site has different priorities when it comes to reporting, make each widget show what you need to when managing your assets.
When uploading a new asset, simply scan your serial barcode and Audit & Compliance will generate dates as to when you need to replace the asset and when warranties end! It’s never been easier to keep on top of things!
Report a Problem
Smartboard not working on-site? Simply scan the barcode, click report a problem and you can send an email straight to the person who can resolve the issue within your trust!
The Comprehensive Digital Registration System for Your Trust
ClassMark and ClubReg provide safe and secure digital registration for classrooms or breakfast and after school clubs on any device. With our classroom registration solutions, outdated paper registrations are a thing of the past!
Seeing pupils who arrive on-site early or after school ours for clubs has never been easier. At InVentry we know that ensuring the safeguarding of pupils goes beyond normal school hours. Whether pupils are coming into the trust for breakfast club, or even a summer camp – you can see who is on-site and what they’re there to do.
InVentry Integrates with Paxton
With many staff members working across the trust, allow certain members to sign in and open doors with the swipe of their InVentry card. With many sites having multiple entrance points, our Quickscan Touch units also provide Multi-Academy Trusts with an easy solution to signing staff in.
Easily populate a Paxton system through InVentry!
Assign temporary door access cards to visitors or parents coming into any site of your Multi Academy Trust.
Automatically disable Paxton access when a user is disabled or removed from InVentry or your MIS.
Remove the burden of Paxton management on administrative and reception staff.
Assign different door access rights to certain members of staff through your InVentry system.
Trigger door releases via an InVentry card reader with a single swipe of your staff ID badges.
How we helped Osset Academy (Accord Multi Academy Trust)
With staff attending different sites across the trust and sharing contractors/visitors, Accord Multi Academy Trust needed a solution which could manage all of these issues.
Ossett Academy is a High School and Sixth Form College based in West Yorkshire, part of the Accord Multi Academy Trust. The educational charity was established in 2016 and is made up of four academics who were the founding members for the trust.
Steve Thompson, Director of ICT for Accord Multi Academy Trust, wanted a consistent and stable signing-in system for staff, students and visitors for all their academies. The main priorities for Ossett Academy were to be able to sign in staff, students and visitors, organise fire evacuations and be able to report attendance.
InVentry solved many problems for Osset Academy through its ability to store information securely. The system also enabled them to become fully GDPR compliant through the storage of data in one central location. Quickscan Touch units were also installed as part of their purchase, which allowed staff to sign in at any entrance point – regardless of where the InVentry screen is based. This has been a great asset for Ossett Academy as it means that staff who tend to roam around the Trust can sign in and get straight on with their job.

What Our Customers Say…
We use InVentry to record children arriving late and leaving early so no paper-based systems for us! We sign class groups out on trips so we know exactly who is in and who is out – ideal for fire drills. InVentry – Easy to use, easy to set up and easy to manage.”
Angela Walker. Holland Park Primary School
“InVentry has streamlined our signing in process greatly. I have not yet had a member of staff forget to sign in, so it enhances the health and safety in the school as we can see at a glance who is in on-site.”
Katherine Ashworth. Cams Lane Primary School
“We wanted to improve our visitor management system and combine that with staff ID badges for signing in and out. The ability to link with SIMS has meant that the InVentry system has exceeded our expectations and we receive many complimentary comments from visitors.”
June Riley. Newstead Wood School
What is visitor management?
Visitor management is any process that helps a school or organisation track those who visit their premises. For many schools or organisations, the simple sign-in book is outdated and no longer sufficient. Many now have higher security requirements such as ID badges, DBS checks and much more.
Is InVentry GDPR compliant?
Not only is InVentry GDPR compliant, it also helps schools improve their GDPR compliance. We have a full GDPR policy available, as well as the information regarding how InVentry controls the data you input.
How much does InVentry cost?
The price of InVentry differs from site to site. As every school or organisation is different, it’s hard to pinpoint one price. If you would like a site-specific quote, we can arrange a quick consultation for you where we’ll be able to give you a price based on your requirements.
