TechnologyOne offers the TAFE sector a lesson in successful Student Management

  • 04 July, 2007 11:44

<p>Brisbane, 3 July 2007 – Technology One Limited (ASX:TNE), a leading Australian provider of enterprise business software solutions, has announced it will extend its proven Student Management System used by leading Australian Universities, within the VET sector.</p>
<p>With more than 18 years experience in delivering solutions to the education sector, TechnologyOne is aware that the TAFE and Higher Education institutions are becoming increasingly linked.</p>
<p>A new bill currently being considered by the House of Representatives could see TAFE organisations become eligible for a HELP scheme, similar to FEE-HELP, enabling TAFE students to defer their tuition costs. This would see the regulatory reporting requirements for the TAFE and VET sector become more closely aligned with Higher Education institutions.</p>
<p>These developments increase the requirement for TAFE to have sophisticated and automated student management systems, prompting TechnologyOne to broaden its student management offering within this sector.</p>
<p>On making this strategic decision, TechnologyOne Executive Chairman, Adrian Di Marco, stated education is one of the most important investments that Australia could make in its future.</p>
<p>“Our goal is to offer all providers in this sector an integrated software solution that will enable them to achieve educational leadership and a superior student experience within the framework of stakeholder accountability,” he said.</p>
<p>“An analysis of the TAFE sector requirements indicates that our solution delivers the functionality needed to support the sector.</p>
<p>“The unique study package architecture of the TechnologyOne Student Management System makes our solution an ideal fit for the TAFE sector. The design of our curriculum management module [the core of the system] takes into consideration the experience gained from the development of the Queensland TAFE solution and provides the inherent flexibility to easily handle the TAFE modules and elements of competency,” Mr Di Marco said.</p>
<p>TechnologyOne has proven itself as a market leader in the higher education sector in Australia – from the company’s initial involvement with TAFE Queensland and the development of its College Administration System, to the development of a vocational placement system for the Office of Technical and Further Education in Victoria. It then partnered with Curtin University of Technology in 1997 to develop TechnologyOne’s Student Management System.</p>
<p>Note to Editors:</p>
<p>TechnologyOne Student Management empowers all stakeholders in an education institution by providing a consistent and online, real time view of their information for use in making effective business decisions. Students, academics, administrators, suppliers and partners can connect through one application. For example, students can enrol and pay their fees online; professional staff can check their leave balance and book teaching and meeting rooms online; academic staff can communicate easily with their students; and department heads can gain an accurate snapshot of operations.</p>
