What is Xporter?
In layman's terms, Xporter takes data from your MIS and translates that data into a format that can be understood by a receiving system.

What is Groupcall Xporter?

Groupcall Xporter is a mature and versatile extraction/translation tool that specialises in connection to school and college MIS systems. It extracts data to an agreed format for a customer and then delivers the data using an agreed method.

Groupcall Xporter extends typical extraction tools by providing:

  • A randomising scheduler
  • Remote web-based monitoring and management
  • Automatic updating
  • Support for multiple sets of extraction scripts in a single installation (i.e. multiple customers)
  • Delta generation and change tracking.

Groupcall Xporter is used by approximately 75% of Secondary and 45% of Primary schools in the United Kingdom.  Groupcall Xporter enables real time data extraction for Schools, Academy Groups, Local Authorities, Broadband Consortia and Third Party Organisations.
