UoE + Switch Systems
Over a decade of working together, building services for students and staff
The College of Engineering Mathematics and Physical Sciences, Research and Knowledge Transfer, The Business School, Estates Development Service, Human Resources - all of whom benefit from our expertise and knowledge in building software solutions.And that's not to mention the many thousands of University staff and students who have access to services we've developed in conjunction with the University's central systems team.
We are fortunate to have built a strong working relationship through company director Kris Sum, who first started out building intranet software solutions for the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Computing in 2003.
We now work closely with a diverse range of people and projects within the University and have a unique insight into all the different requirements and backend systems that the University operates. Some examples of our work with the University can be found on our software page.
One of our solutions developed for Human Resources won an award:
The University is growing its staff numbers which means that having effective systems to recruit the best both locally and internationally is critical. [...] By end of this year, the on line system will have saved at least 15,210 sheets of paper and the circulation of 1,200 internal mail envelopes.
We've worked with technical and management staff on converting paper systems to electronic systems, automating routine tasks, aggregating large data-sets into manageable information, interfacing with Midland Trent, Aptos and other third-party University systems.
Switch Systems has continued to deliver on-time and on-budget software for us, backed up by an excellent service support team.
This is just the kind of process improvement that we need if we are to deliver the operational efficiencies that will help us in our drive to becoming a sustainable Top 10 institution.
I'm afraid that's top secret!
We can say that we're currently involved on a wide variety of different projects, including software that helps improve the quality of data held with the University and projects that integrate existing systems to reduce staff administrative burden.
