Smarter working with Microsoft Dynamics
A CRM system sits at the backend of most higher education operations. But is your institution getting the most from your setup?
Take marketing. More than simply managing existing student data, our Microsoft Dynamics solutions can help universities and wider education providers to simplify and automate marketing to prospective students, as well as manage and track fundraising activities for alumni and benefactors. Whether email marketing (via Click Dimensions) or event coordination, Microsoft Dynamics can help you capture more leads, entice more new students, and drive more fundraising revenues.
We can also provide Dynamics solutions that assist with the wider management of education operations. From central records of grades to lecture room scheduling, Microsoft Dynamics can be the central hub of your operations.
And should your Dynamics setup need some TLC, contact us about our Dynamics support – helpdesk support and banked development time for the enhancement of your Dynamics setup.

Digital Asset Management In SharePoint Online
Teachers and educators put a huge amount of talent and creativity into their lessons. But where are those resources and lesson plans stored when the class is done?
The digital asset management solutions we’ve designed in SharePoint Online are perfect for an education organisation to build an archive repository of its best work. Whether printable resources, useful photos, or a complete years’ worth of lesson plans, all of these gold dust resources can be stored in the cloud in a way that’s easily accessible to all of an institution’s educators, wherever they are.
Plus, with SharePoint’s meta-tagging, resources can be tagged and filtered per requirement (year group, theme, asset type, lesson type etc.) making them easier to find and thereby cutting work down for teachers and educators.
This is just one example of the benefits of SharePoint.

Automate administration & make more of data
There are plenty of administrative tasks education institutions need to undertake as part of day-to-day operations. But there are smarter ways to do them.
From automated visitor sign-in systems, to how students log their lunch choices, we can provide Power Apps solutions that get the tasks done faster.
Built to be used with tablets, Power Apps shifts the onus of responsibility from educator to student, easing the load on teachers and lecturers.
And with data in a digital format, it can be used more intelligently. Combined with Power BI, trends in absences can be spotted easier, and even learning patterns better identified.
