The Emerge client app talks to SIMS via the Emerge Web Service that is installed on your SIMS server (or elsewhere if you require). The Emerge Web Service uses a single SIMS user to connect to SIMS via another Groupcall product called Xporter. That single SIMS user carries all Emerge traffic using Staff Codes to differentiate data for different users.
The Emerge Web Service applies two layers of authentication (device and user) before allowing data to be transmitted. Transmitted data is encrypted so that it can only be decoded by the device it is being sent to.
Please note: Behaviour and Achievement write-back is now available for SIMS schools on Apple iOS devices only.
