Why are we upgrading the current software?
The new version of the software will better complement the Modern Working Environment by allowing the production of staff / student timetables and populating them into personal electronic dairies. It will also present the opportunity to implement a common Room Booking and timetabling platform. At present, timetabling and the management of school rooms are managed differently across all schools. The introduction of the new version will allow us to review these practices to assess if a common approach and system can be applied to all. This in turn will allow for better reporting on the use of both centrally and locally managed space.
The University Lean Project looking at Room Bookings also recommended this common approach and the work of the Scientia Working Group recommend the upgrade to Enterprise for the above reasons.
