Literacy Aotearoa select Tribal to Enhance Staff and Student Experience

 

Auckland, 17 November 2020 - Tribal Group, a leading provider of software and services to the international education market, has been awarded a contract to deploy its market leading student management system at Literacy Aotearoa.

Tribal Group ‘s ebs:VET, a pre-configured version of the organisation’s Student Information System, ebs, will be delivered from the cloud on a five-year SaaS subscription and will go live in January 2021. It will improve the way Literacy Aotearoa’s 40 sites throughout New Zealand collect, collate, analyse and share information, helping to optimise the learner journey and support the organisation’s growth.

ebs:VET will realise a range of benefits for the organisation, including streamlining of processes and delivering an enhanced user experience for staff. The implementation includes core SMS modules, a staff portal, as well business intelligence tools and interfaces with key external government agencies, including Single Data Return (SDR), Literacy and Numeracy for Adults Assessment Tool (LNAAT), National Student Number (NSN) and other submissions to the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) via workspace2 to improve business processes.   

Existing knowledge of the business intelligence opportunities within the ebs SMS along with an extremely positive reference visit to an existing Tribal customer were key deciding factors for Literacy Aotearoa.     

Bronwyn Yate, Te Tumuaki (CEO), Literacy Aotearoa says,

In its transition to a single national entity Literacy Aotearoa Charitable Trust recognised it was necessary to have a comprehensive system that provides benchmark data for performance,”

Tribal will also provide us with workflow management that promotes consistency with the organisation’s expectations for learner engagement.”

The implementation at Literacy Aotearoa adds to Tribal Group’s increasing number of ebs cloud deployments. It is the organisation’s ninth customer in the PTE sector and the eighth organisation in 18 months to implement an ebs solution.

Steve Exley, Tribal General Manager - New Zealand says,

Tribal is excited to support Literacy Aotearoa with an extremely flexible SMS which will simplify some of the unique requirements of Literacy Aotearoa. We look forward to assisting Literacy Aotearoa to improve internal processes and realise the benefits of our student centric solution.”
