How to access/login to Hosted SIMS at home

Occasionally, you may need to be able to access your Scomis Hosted SIMS remotely, such as at home. You can access the Scomis Hosted Applications service from anywhere with an internet connection. In order to do this,

  • NOTE:  Capita SIMS .net requires Microsoft Office Products for reporting, it is therefore the responsibility of all schools to ensure that all users and devices are covered for remote use rights by having a valid  Microsoft Office 2016 Licence (Standard Edition Minimum).

Visit The Hosted Connector download page  and double click the green icon with the two white arrows to download the connector. 

Depending which browser you are using, the connector will start to download at the bottom of your screen.

Internet Explorer/Microsoft Edge 

Click the ‘Run‘ button

Google Chrome 

Double click after the download has completed.

 When this screen appears, click Next through the installer until you reach the Finish page.Double click after the download has completed.

The icon will now appear on your Desktop as it would in school. Login using your Hosted credentials and you should be able to access the service.

If you are taking your school PC home, this should allow you to login using the same icon as you would in school reliant on your Internet connection at home.

If you need to be able to print at home, download the Screwdrivers Printing client from the initial FAQ page here: http://faq.scomis.org/kb9079/

****Please note, Scomis are not able to provide support for Home/Personal PC’s*****.
