It also connects with external agencies such as NZQA, StudyLink and Ministry of Education and internal systems such as the library, ICTS and Tech One. The SMS database is accessed by a number of different environments, all of which are considered components of the SMS and use the same login information.

The EBS or SMS applications

Agent 4: The Agent environment is designed for staff who are primarily interested in viewing student and curriculum information, such as service centre and academic staff. Agent has attendance and result marking functionality.


Reports: Every document produced by the SMS is considered a report. These documents as well as other detailed reports can be viewed, extracted and/or printed from this environment.


Windows or Timetabling (Shape):: Timetabling is the environment where student, room and course timetables are created and maintained. Bookings, timetables and registers are all managed in this environment.
