It’s been almost a year since we were appointed by Stranmillis University College in Belfast to implement our Event and Portal packages. Since then, we’ve developed a very close working relationship with the University College and have been watching closely to see how our software has been performing – and whether there are any unmet needs or opportunities for further innovation.
From this ongoing dialogue, we’ve identified an area that’s never been addressed adequately by currently available software for the higher education sector and we’re happy to announce that we’ll be partnering with the University College on a new project to develop and implement a Student Placement Management and tracking application.
This new app will become part of the Optime Scheduling Cloud suite of products and will integrate tightly with our OSC Timetabler tool, as well as our Event package. We anticipate that this will be another useful expansion to our cloud product offering, which already includes tools that allow university administrators to easily manage a wide range of timetabling, scheduling, planning invigilation and room booking tasks – as well as our unique, end-to-end graduation ceremony management tool Ceremonies.
We’ve already begun preliminary work on this Student Placement Management project and we’re expecting a launch in Q2 2019 but – as ever – watch this space.
