About our service

Schools using Atomwide supported services will know that their USO credentials serve as their unique log in details for the entire range of Atomwide services.


To save time and hassle, USOSync can synchronise the USO database with your school’s local Active Directory so your USO username and password will serve for this purpose aswell, further removing another set of account details to have to remember.


USOSync can also synchronise USO with your Microsoft 365 or Google accounts allowing even greater consistency in usernames and passwords.

Extends USO into a school’s local domain to simplify logins

USOSync allows a school to populate its Microsoft Active Directory with user accounts from USO which is populated by MIS data. This allows user details to be created or amended in your Active Directory (AD) soon after those details are entered into the school’s MIS without any manual administration.

All changes happen by the information being securely exported from the MIS to USO and then having that information written into your AD. USOSync then continues to handle the on-going synchronisation of accounts.

USOSync with Google

USOSync is also able to synchronise USO accounts with Google services. For more information on this service please get in touch.

Reduces the account administration burden on schools

USOSync creates users, organised into appropriate Organisational Units for ease of management (e.g. the application of policies). It also adds users to various groups according to their account profiles e.g. user type (students, staff and nominated contacts), year group, etc.#

It can calculate and set paths for login scripts and profiles (but leaves the profiles themselves open to local management and configuration), and it can create home area shares in a variety of fashions (e.g. one folder per user, or a shared folder in which each person has a subfolder, all with appropriately set permissions).

Pupil accounts are automatically moved from one year group to the next at the start of the school year and accounts that are removed from the MIS will also be taken out of the AD.


USOSync works in partnership with AutoUpdate, a software download available to all USO subscribing schools. Via AutoUpdate, data is extracted from the MIS, encrypted, then securely sent to the central USO database. Based on the MIS data, new USO accounts are automatically created and existing accounts are updated with any relevant changes.
