Liverpool School of English – Anna Goodband

“The reporting side of Class allows me to run all the reports I need for the business: arrivals; host family availability; weekly group reports that help us manage our timetabling; timetabling reports; checking for sessional teachers; English UK Statistics which we also use for ISI; doing a lot of data analysis at the moment as part of hoping to become an Eaquals school; marketing and student numbers throughout the year. We also use the reporting to compare our year-round and summer school strands of our business.”
