In 2022, the Education Authority (EA) Northern Ireland tendered to replace the School Management System in all their 1,100 schools and expand to other educational settings. With the EdIS Strategic Partner and School Management System, EA has secured the implementation of a world-leading, cloud-based, functionally rich solution to replace the current on-premises solution. New benefits will be tailored and customised for Northern Ireland’s Education sector in order to enhance the functions that schools currently utilise. 

 

The comprehensive procurement process completed in December 2023 sees Bromcom play a key role in the overall solution delivery alongside a range of partners. 

 

The objectives of Bromcom’s One-Stop shop solution includes: 

  • Putting the learner at the centre of the service 
  • Enhancing stakeholder communication across the education sector 
  • Supporting improved collaboration across all schools and stakeholders 
  • Reducing duplication of data and the administrative burden of the system for all users in Northern Ireland  

 

Speaking on the announcement, Bromcom CEO Ali Guryel said: “We could not have started 2024 on a better note, with the news that the Education Authority in Northern Ireland have chosen Bromcom to provide cloud MIS services to their schools. It is a huge project, and credit to all involved at Bromcom and our partners for their hard work during the tender process. We are delighted that our One-Stop Shop solution will deliver benefits to learning communities, and ultimately help enable better education outcomes.”

 

The goal of the project is to provide high quality, sustainable, core education technology services to schools and to ensure that they are appropriate to meet the current and future needs of school children, young people, teachers, school leaders, parents, and guardians in Northern Ireland.
