In addition to our bespoke app development services we also offer two products of our own. Both products are developed to facilitate easy and secure sharing and collaboration between groups of people, using mobile devices and the web.
Like most sectors, education is embracing the iPad and exploring how it can benefit both teachers and students.
There are many benefits that the iPad can bring to the classroom but the challenges for educators using iPads include - how do we provision large numbers of user accounts, how do we share files across classes, small groups and individuals, and how do we manage the submission and feedback workflows between students and teachers?
Prior to the launch of School eLockers the only solutions to the above questions involved using a multitude of different tools, and a lot of time and effort on the part of staff.
School eLockers solves these problems by providing a single system that integrates with an establishment's management information system and is perfectly designed to support the interaction between teachers and students.
The School eLockers solution consists of a server based service, standard web client interface, and iOS app. In keeping with the trend towards people using their mobile devices as their primary computer, the iOS app provides all the functionality required, making it perfect for classrooms that are using iPads in a 1-1 or shared environment.

There is little doubt that mobile devices such as the iPad are starting to replace traditional PCs as some people's primary computing device. The statistics back this up but you only need look around you in airport business lounges, meeting rooms, and office desks to see that people are doing more and more of their work on these devices.
eLocker Suite makes it easy for teams and businesses to facilitate secure sharing and collaboration through their mobile devices. Colleagues can share reports, meeting agendas, proposals, and research papers quickly and securely with just a few taps.
Making it easy to share files with colleagues by just using an iPad or iPhone is certainly enough to meet most people's core needs, but eLocker Suite also provides the functionality to evaluate and discuss each item that is being shared. Using the text and audio tools, users can leave notes on each item that can then be accessed by their colleagues, making it possible to asynchronously discuss reports and proposals using nothing more than the app.
Because Specialist Apps understands the need for modern organisations to protect their data, eLocker Suite can be installed on-site or remotely hosted.
