How did you find the Oliver v5 implementation process? (0:14)


The implementation process was pretty painless really. We didn’t really experience very many hiccups.

We got a lot of support from Softlink in getting it up and running, and honestly, we were up and running much quicker than we expected to be.

What has your experience been with Oliver v5 and integration? (0:35)


Our experience with Oliver has been extremely positive so far. We’ve seen how it’s transformed a lot of how we use IT in the school.

The way it’s integrated with the different systems that we have at the school has been very positive as well.

Whether it be linking to our student information system like Compass, and other things that we’ve been using in the school like ClickView, it’s been a really cohesive piece of software that’s really tied together a lot of components of the school.


It all went pretty smoothly from IT’s point of view.

We just recently set up the EduHub recurring imports, so we have the new students and staff that are imported on a daily basis. So that’s been set up just recently and it’s working quite well, and it’s all been very straightforward.

We have an Oliver cloud instance and it’s been very easy to use.

How have you found Softlink Support Services? (1:50)


We found Softlink Support services to be really, really strong. It’s one of our favourite parts about working with Softlink and using the Oliver software.

We’ve had various technical queries throughout our time using Oliver and without fail, every time Softlink is able to give us a prompt response, investigate issues and get us running really, really quickly.

So yeah, we’ve had nothing but positive experience so far.
