June 2024: Cloud wTimeTable unveiled at Bromcom’s annual Shard event.

Bromcom has announced the launch of its advanced web-timetabling solution, designed to do away with time-consuming and outdated import processes, and make timetabling quicker and easier. Cloud wTimeTable does this by offering users a wide range of capabilities, which were demonstrated at Bromcom’s flagship Shard event this week. These include:

  • Easy setup using Project Wizard
  • Drag-and-drop functionality for fast and intuitive timetable building
  • Automatic timetable creation based on rules, criteria, and relationships
  • The option of hybrid or manual operation to allow users to control and automate different aspects of timetabling
  • Automatic conflict notifications that flag clashes, blank sessions, and other errors
  • The ability to create multiple timetable versions while retaining the same project entities

In addition, developments to Bromcom’s integrated artificial intelligence tool, Bromcom AI, means users will be able to run timetable queries and receive automated responses based on school data held in the system. Questions like: “Which teachers teach year 10 on Friday?”, or: “List all the teachers who teach English”, or: “Which teachers are unavailable to cover in the month of December?” will be able to be answered by Bromcom AI.

Cloud wTimeTable is fully integrated into Bromcom’s cloud MIS ecosystem so no separate software is required to start using it. Its intuitive interface and easy-to-use features also means that staff can be trained to use it at working level in an hour.

Cloud wTimeTable is live for Bromcom’s One-Stop Shop customers and available upon request for Standard and Plus customers. Bromcom’s training team are now hosting weekly training sessions to demonstrate how Cloud wTimeTable works. Please get in touch if you’d like to be part of this.

Huseyin Guryel, Chief Technology Officer at Bromcom, commented: “We are always looking for ways to make life easier for our MIS customers. Providing a new Timetable feature which helps staff automate the scheduling process will save them time and simplify what is often a complex and lengthy process. At the same time, developments we have made to Bromcom AI have been designed to complement this module. AI has enormous potential to facilitate the lives of MIS users, and providing them with the option to run timetable queries is just the latest example of how we are using technology to support schools. We are planning to integrate more AI workflows into the module in the coming months.” 

Chris Kirk, Bromcom’s Chief Commercial Officer, added: “We are delighted to announce that we have already had very positive feedback from the schools and trusts that have been using it so far, including Delta Academies Trust and Corinium Education Trust. We cannot wait to get more customers using Cloud wTimeTable and hear how it is streamlining their timetabling processes.”
