EducationHUB Syncservice is a 100% web-based application (Software as a Service) that allows IT departments at educational institutions to automatically synchronize students, employees, and groups from source systems used in the education sector (LAS, SIS, Rooster, HRM) with the Microsoft 365 platform on a daily basis.
Easily and quickly create Teams automatically
Synchronized with the student administration system
No scripting, 100% cloud-based
Use Microsoft 365 as a central identity provider
Tasks that used to take days can now be done in a matter of hours
The EducationHUB Syncservice is essentially a technical tool for IT departments. It ensures that students, pupils, and employees are synchronized in the Microsoft 365 Platform.

More and more educational institutions are embracing Microsoft 365 and the many useful tools it includes, such as Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Teams is also used to support online teaching, such as for storing lesson material centrally or scheduling online classes.
However, managing Teams can quickly become a major chore if your institution has hundreds, if not thousands, of students, each of whom have different classes, are in different teams, and use different documents.
IT administrators also spend a lot of time manually adding users and groups. They often use the School Data Sync application, which still requires them to populate it with source data from LAS/SIS.
And lecturers and teachers often have to wait until the groups have been organized, because adding them manually is often a time-consuming process. The EducationHUB Syncservice changes all that, as it runs completely in the cloud and is always up to date.
The EducationHUB Syncservice is a synchronization tool for IT coordinators and IT staff; it accelerates and automates the process of adding users and groups to the right teams.
The tool draws on existing systems that your educational institution already uses, for example, software for timetables, LAS, SIS, or HRM systems, and connects to School Data Sync in the Microsoft 365 platform.
Teaching staff in control
If a student turns up to a class and they have not yet been added to the digital team, the teacher can add them themselves. This means that the student can take part straight away; they don’t have to wait for administrative processes to be completed.
The Syncservice automates the creation and synchronization of Teams and users, which reduces the IT department’s workload.
IT in control
Although the synchronization process is intended to be automated as much as possible, the Syncservice has built-in checkpoints so that the IT department can prevent incorrect groups from ending up in source systems.
The Syncservice supplies information to the Microsoft 365 platform and School Data Sync in a smart way. This means that the MS365 platform can be used as a central identity provider for the secure and flexible implementation of cloud-based Identity & Access Management (IDM/IAM). It also simplifies workplace management for the IT department with Microsoft Intune (100% cloud-based).
Workplace management takes place entirely in the cloud, and students have also been using personal devices for some time. Microsoft 365 and Teams form the central learning environment. For example, each year and class has its own Teams environment, with a teacher as the owner.”
