Leading software provider, Advanced Learning (Advanced) has been awarded a £425K contract to supply timetabling software solutions to the University of Westminster. The University will go live with the solutions, CMIS and CMISGo in August 2014. Advanced won the five year contract after a thorough tendering process, which involved four other software providers.
The university will use CMIS and CMISGo to provide timetables for over 22,000 students and 1,000 staff and manage resources across four main campuses, each of which accommodate lecture theatres and seminar space alongside laboratories, studios and corporate accommodation.
Martin Stevens, Timetabling Project Manager, University of Westminster says: “We are impressed with the Advanced Learning team and the software and are confident it will generate many benefits for our students, academic staff and support teams.
“CMIS and CMISGo will enable us to automate numerous timetabling and resource planning processes including the preparation of timetables prior to the beginning of each academic year. This is currently a major challenge and we believe that the new system will enable us to significantly reduce the time it takes to carry out key processes.
Steve Dashwood Managing Director Advanced Learning comments “We are very pleased to be working in partnership with the University of Westminster. Our dedicated project team brings a significant collective experience of working with CMIS in our growing education client base and we will work closely with the University to support their strategic goals and roadmap for the future.”
