Unlimited Seats for Truss RTO Smart and Enterprise

One of the many stress factors when you're trying to grow a business is the cascading series of additional work that growth brings; each new step you take seems to trigger another half dozen that you have to take to catch up.

As we speak to RTOs across Australia it's become clear that per-seat licensing creates logistical issues for an RTO - How do you deal with...

DON'T GET LEFT BEHIND

If you're still running an on-premises or desktop application to manage your RTO, you risk being left behind.

An AVETMISS and USI Compliant, cloud-based Student Management System like Truss RTO gives you:

RELIABLE, AUSTRALIAN-BASED CLOUD HOSTING

Reliable, Australian-Based Cloud Hosting

Truss RTO is hosted on private cloud infrastructure in Melbourne and Sydney, meaning you stay compliant.

Cloud doesn't mean offshore and out of reach - it means fast, reliable and accessible anywhere. It also saves a bundle compared to buying your own hardware.

SECURED & PROTECTED BY PROFESSIONALS

SECURED & PROTECTED BY PROFESSIONALS

Did you know that you're much more likely to lose data from an insecure office network than from a hack on a hosted network? Do you have a security team on hand monitoring your office for threats?

Moving your data to the cloud means your data security is protected by professionals.

PREDICTABLE MAINTENANCE COSTS

PREDICTABLE MAINTENANCE COSTS

For a single, low monthly fee, you get Hosting, Support, Upgrades, Monitoring and guaranteed 99.9% uptime.

Never get stuck with a failed server, stung by an invoice for upgrading your suppliers kit, or burdened with a "scheduled outage" again.

THE POWER TO WORK FROM ANYWHERE

THE POWER TO WORK FROM ANYWHERE

Stop shuffling paper to keep your trainers up to date. With a Laptop, an iPad or a Smartphone, you can access course information from anywhere with a 3G signal.

Stop "Running Reports" or emailing around spreadsheets to see what's going on. Simple, live dashboards give you a summary of what's on.

AUTOMATION

AUTOMATION

Desktop Management Systems rely on your computer being turned on to function. A cloud-based system can work while you sleep.

Are your staff manually sending reminders for upcoming refresher courses? Chasing corrections to enrolment info? Your system should do that automatically - Truss RTO does.

THE POWER TO DELEGATE

THE POWER TO DELEGATE

A system should be just that: a system. Not a collection of spreadsheets or a labyrinth of tiny buttons and lists like many desktop packages are.

A cloud-based Student Management System should provide clear delineation between roles within your business and show each staff member what's on their plate right now.
