Driving Innovation in Higher Education

We are dedicated to positioning universities at the forefront of delivering an exceptional student journey. In today’s fiercely competitive landscape, acknowledging the strategic advantages of embracing cutting-edge technology has never been more crucial. The student experience is undoubtedly a core focus as a key stakeholder, and after all, the first interaction that an applicant will have with a University sets the tone for what’s to come. We want to ensure that the first impression is both seamless and lasting.

In an era of increasing digital sophistication, students and staff are acutely aware of the potential threats to their data. Ensuring that this data is processed and managed securely is of paramount importance. By transitioning from on-premise to cloud-based solutions and centralised legacy siloed data stores, Universities can mitigate these risks, improving the students’ outward experience.

We are passionate about using technology and innovation to empower Universities to achieve this. From applicant to alumni, we’ve got it covered.

We work closely with higher education institutions to understand their existing infrastructure and services. Using Microsoft Azure AD B2C and Entra Verified ID, we help them carefully plan, develop, and implement bespoke solutions tailored to their individual needs. And the best part? We can work with the infrastructure and licencing you already have, so there is no need for ripping and replacing!
