Who we are

Overnet Data’s team is dedicated to developing software to make the administration side of school life simpler, leaving teachers time to get on with what they do best. We’ve been supporting schools for since 2007, which started with our Moodle Managed VLE solution. We employ staff that are ex school network managers or have experience in other areas of education, which helps us focus on what’s important for our customers.

What we do

Our main product is Edulink One. It keeps everything in one place, designed to streamline SIMS data into a platform that’s functional on any device. It accessibly combines everything you need to support a well-managed and connected school environment, from administration and planning to communicating with your students and their parents. We reduce workload, cost, and complexity of systems to help you focus on what’s important: engaging with and supporting your students.

Our Core Values

icon

Honesty

Our prices reflect how we work. There are no hidden costs or long contract tie-ins. What you see on a free trial is what you get. We know it’s unusual in our market but we like to be different.

icon

Integrity

Our key staff have a background in schools, they understand the frustrations of dealing with commercial companies who feel they can milk school budgets. This isn’t us. We strive to keep costs low and contract simple.

icon

Trusted

We’ve been providing solutions and support for schools for over 12 years. We are proud of our excellent reputation for customer support and are happy for you to contact any of our customers to get their opinion.

icon

Forward Thinking

Our customers are our life-blood. We constantly innovate and look to improve our products to ensure we provide a useful product for schools. That’s why we roll out updates and additional functionality for no additional cost.

What we really liked was that within one unified platform we had a single solution that would allow us to communicate, engage and share data with teachers, parents and students.

Darren Jones, Network Manager, UCTC

For parents, real-time reporting means they can really participate in their child's education, with similar access to timetable information and data on achievement, behaviour etc. ... it is convenient to get to via their smart phone.

Rob Coles, Network Manager, Hornsea School and Language College

Teachers love the feature where the Pupil Premium, SEN and medical alert flags are shown on the register screen. That’s a great feature. It means that we’ve now got at our fingertips information on who is in our class and what we need to do to support them.

What matters most is that school systems work well and are easy to use. Edulink One is such a great product, it sells itself. Parental engagement has been impressive… the low price is a bonus.

Edulink One is so much more than a parent portal. It has vastly improved our communications with students and parents, and revolutionised our staff’s normal way of working – increasing efficiency and impact. We cannot imagine life without it now!

Daryl Bond, Assistant Headteacher, Guildford County School

Edulink One really is a fantastic asset. It’s simple to use and ties so many activities/tasks from school life together in one place. The app has helped improve communication with parents and we’ve seen nothing but benefits from implementing it.

In terms of choosing Overnet Data to support Moodle, we found that their help-desk support was absolutely fantastic and quick, and their knowledge on it has been absolutely brilliant, and when there have been problems, they had them resolved really, really quickly and we’ve been informed really clearly of what happened and why it happened and how we can resolve it in the future.

Steven Wainwright, Assistant Network Manager, Hertswood Academy.

It is a huge benefit and bonus having Overnet Data there to help us out with running major maintenance updates on Moodle. Plus, if someone comes to us and asks questions that we’re not sure about or wants a feature adding, we e-mail their support team and get a response the same day! This is really, really useful.
