Seamless Integration & Real-Time Analysis: MATs have emphasised the ease of transitioning to this system. They experienced instant access to essential metrics without the previously tedious process of logging into multiple systems.

Greenwood Academies Trust’s Data Manager, Samantha, gave a high rating for Juniper’s support and consultancy team, emphasising their expertise and product knowledge.
Facilitated Collaboration: The MAT Dashboard has not only improved data accessibility but has also fostered collaboration.
