London, March 29 2023 – Leading SAP® partner NTT DATA Business Solutions UK&I has been named as an approved supplier on the Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges (APUC) framework for Higher Education Student Management Systems.
APUC was formed in 2007 and is owned by Scotland’s universities and colleges. Suppliers seeking a place on the procurement framework must go through a full tendering process and meet the high standards set by APUC with requirements relating to factors such as price and quality in order to be accepted.
As a supplier on the APUC Framework, NTT DATA Business Solutions will be able to offer its it.education solution to universities in Scotland.
it.education is based on SAP Student Lifecycle Management, and is designed to support the entire student journey. It’s a fully integrated end to end solution which follows a template-based approach so it works ‘out-of-the-box’ for universities without the need for expensive and time-consuming customisation.
Nick Gibson, Head of Education and Research at NTT DATA Business Solutions UK&I said: “We’re proud to be part of the APUC Framework and as one of just six approved suppliers, we are ideally placed to leverage our experience and provide student management systems to higher education institutions.
He continued: “With more than 150 experts, we are the largest implementation partner for SAP software in higher education. We know that attracting and retaining students is no easy task for universities with competition as fierce as ever. At the same time, students are more tech savvy, digital literate and socially aware than ever before, and their wishes and demands have increased. Our solution, it.education, helps universities to better understand the needs of students, and enables them to respond to those needs, improving performance, satisfaction, and retention.”
