Cloud Design Box create bespoke responsive designs for all versions of SharePoint (even Office 365 SharePoint online). We specialise in customising the look and feel of SharePoint to reflect your school, academy or trust branding.
All the designs are fully responsive to work on mobile devices and tablets. Let Cloud Design Box guide you through the design process from Photoshop wireframes and mock-ups to the final implemented look and feel.
Increase pupil engagement by taking advantage of Office 365 collaboration tools such as Class Notebook, shared and individual document areas, discussions, assignments and much more.
Replace pupil shared drives with free SharePoint storage. Files in SharePoint can be accessed on any device using a range of mobile apps.
Using our trusted partners, we can create class collaboration sites and teams using the school's MIS system (such as SIMS, CMIS, iSAMS, etc.). Our subject and class site templates are fully bespoke to meet the needs of your classroom. This includes class membership access in Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook and groups for use with Microsoft Teams for Education.
Our templates look great and are responsive to work on mobile, tablet and desktop devices. Each design is unique for each school.
Microsoft Teams for Education is free for all schools. It allows teachers to set assignments electronically and collect pupil submissions. Teachers can mark and return the work back to the student.
Cloud Design Box can provision class data automatically so that teachers don't have to waste time creating teams manually. We also provide onsite teacher training and support so that all teachers can set and mark work using Office 365.
Cloud Design Box can analyse SharePoint structures using PowerShell and Visio to visualise the architecture. This makes it easy to see where structures can be improved to enhance navigation, permissioning and logical storage. Working with the school, Cloud Design Box plan the new structure with the use of easy to follow diagrams and implement the new structure using custom scripts and templates.
Cloud Design Box work with trusted partners for site automation such as subject site and class site automation using data from the MIS database.
Does your school have long-winded paper based processes such as leave requests, reprographics jobs or purchase order requests?
Cloud Design Box can help schools automate these processes using SharePoint forms and workflows. By streamlining the process, we make the school more efficient.
Our solutions are unique for each school and can even include employee onboarding (inductions), internal helpdesks, employee KPI/appraisal tracking and much more! We don't speak technical jargon and we make the process easy to understand.
With over 8 years’ experience of SharePoint’s migration path and hundreds of upgrades, Cloud Design Box engineers offer a transparent and cost-effective upgrade/migration service. Project plans are provided to clearly outline each step of the process to keep downtime minimal and make the migration as smooth as possible.
Make the most out of SharePoint by training up technical staff and end-users. Cloud Design Box offer hands-on onsite training tailored for each group.
Our training options include technical (administrating SharePoint server), end-user workshops, workflows and SharePoint Designer sessions. Each of these sessions can be formed from a list of topics or customised for the specific needs of the school.
From help with School Data Sync to quick online help sessions, Cloud Design Box offers service level agreements for both SharePoint on-premises and SharePoint Online (Office 365).
