USO-AutoUpdate is updated!

An updated version (v1.1.2.0) of USO-AutoUpdate has now been released.

The main changes are:

1) The software will now work in 64-bit Windows, as Windows will run it in 32-bit compatibility mode.

2) The app and the update tool check that you have admin rights. If you don’t, then you can’t set a schedule, the software will not update, and settings will not be saved. You should still be able to run a report, presuming that an admin account has previously configured the settings.

3) Changes have now been implemented which will improve the robustness of the application in situations where web services calls fail.

Please let us know if you identify any issues in the new version.


USO-AutoUpdate is a new service from Atomwide, approved by Capita, which automates the exporting of data from SIMS (other MIS support is planned for the future) into the Atomwide/LGfL USO service.

A highly granular level of control and visibility is offered on the details that are exported into USO, which can include staff, pupils, and parents, including parent or guardian contact details.

The product is available on a per school basis, or as a bulk purchase at LA level, for new and existing USO users. The latter is the recommended process of procurement, especially if part of a new USO rollout across an LA.

As part of the process, the USO support site provides an interface to allow the management of user details as they are imported and to allow for the cleansing of any erroneous data whether in the MIS system or in USO.
