Forest of Dean Trust is a growing UK education organisation that currently operates two schools, Dene Magna Secondary and Drybrook Primary. They were in the market for a new MIS provider for the education sector as their provider, decided to exit the market. They started their search for a new MIS provider six months ago and had a list of 10 potential suppliers that were narrowed down to four, including Bromcom.
We had the opportunity to interview Emily Stigant, ICT Manager for Forest of Dean Trust, to discuss their decision to choose Bromcom and their experience throughout the selection process.
When asked about their decision-making process, Emily shared that they loved MAT Vision, which would enable them to onboard more schools as they grow. They appreciated the details of functionality and automation features within the system, such as behaviour, and were excited about the AI functionality. They found the Bromcom user interface to be superior to other MIS providers. In the end, Bromcom’s functionality, innovation, and future-proofing capabilities won them over.
Regarding their experience with Bromcom’s demo, Emily shared that it was tailored to their needs and compared well to the competition. However, they were ultimately sold on Bromcom’s One Stop Shop approach, integrated finance system, and user-friendly interface.
We are thrilled to welcome Forest of Dean Trust to the Bromcom community and look forward to working with them as they continue to grow. Their experience with Bromcom highlights our commitment to providing innovative, future-proofed, and user-friendly solutions that meet the needs of our customers.
