This document has been created to explain how to download Emerge onto your device to allow you to test out the functionality with a sample hosted version of SIMS. Should you wish to trial Emerge with your school’s live data, including on other MISs, please contact Groupcall who will be happy to arrange this for you.
There are two demonstration databases to choose from:
- Green Abbey - a secondary school
- Water’s Edge School - a Primary database
Both of these contain dummy data provided by Capita. We suggest you choose the Admin role in either of these schools to see the full functionality of Emerge. The functionality within the App will be the same regardless of MIS, so if you use another MIS in your school, you can still get a feel for the App using SIMS data.
This document will take you through each of the steps to install the App, using screenshots as examples. It will take approximately 2 minutes.
Once you have installed the App on your device, you can now login to the Demo Database.
We cannot customise these settings for the demo system.

When using the demo system, please try the features out to see how well Emerge can update a hosted SIMS system running in another part of the country! We have optimised Emerge to be very fast, so any delays you may experience on the demo will be related to the geographically separate location - it will be faster in your school.
