Designed to provide a single cohesive view of your organisation, ebs improves the way you collect, collate, analyse and share information so you can streamline your operations and enhance student engagement. Offering real-time digital technologies for reporting and communication, ebs empowers your staff and students to achieve more successful outcomes.
Tribal software is our main hub, it certainly makes my life a lot easier. You can go to a single source, ebs, and you can see information very quickly and succinctly about any student. It’s important as a college that we embrace technology. The NESCOMMS app is freedom within a box, our students see it as a professional social network.

I can sleep at night. Especially when we had Ofsted in. The way we use data now has heavily improved the quality of the service we can give our learners

Burnley College has been using ebs since the start of the 2003/04 academic year, their team has over 18 years’ experience using the solution. The college has found that ebs and Tribal technology has enabled them to streamline their student data and funding streams, and 15 years from implementation it is crucial to their student journey and success.
The North East Surrey College of Technology (Nescot) is leading the way in student communications, using Tribal Edge Engage app technology to take the next step in student experience. Through the use of NESCOMMS, their own college app and private social network, they’ve brought their learners and tutors closer than ever before.
In late 2016 Swindon College came to the decision that staff-student communications has moved on and their existing strategy of using a combination of email, texts and Facebook didn’t necessarily match the means of communication their students preferred. In order for communications to further contribute towards engagement, retention and safeguarding goals the college expected of themselves as an Outstanding provider, they chose to implement a private social media network integrated with ebs, with immediate and incredibly positive effects.
