Compass to launch Further Education sector’s next generation ERP system

11/11/2014 by Sharon Shahzad


Leading further education software provider, Compass Computer Consultants (Compass), an Advanced Computer Software company, today announces it will launch ProUnify, a complete enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. The system will offer seamless integration of student records, finance, HR and payroll processes and is expected to be released in spring 2015.

ProUnify will be the most complete, fully integrated business system available to the further education (FE) sector, at a time when funding cuts continue to hit colleges hard. The solution will play an essential role in enabling organisations to streamline processes while saving significant money and time.

The best-of-breed system is the latest in a portfolio of solutions, which Compass has specifically developed for colleges in partnership with its customer colleges. It will unify the full student management information system, ProSolution, with Advanced’s finance, HR and payroll software, enabling staff to streamline processes, communication and transparency across organisations. As a result, colleges will benefit from significant cost savings and staff time will be freed up to focus on more value-adding activities. 

ProUnify will enable staff to take class registers via the student record system. This data is then automatically transferred to the payroll system, which uses the number of class registers they have marked to calculate the number of hours staff members have worked and pays them accordingly. The process saves unnecessary data entry duplication in multiple systems and eliminates inaccuracies. ProUnify will also be designed to be easy to use and will integrate with third party finance, HR and payroll systems.

City of Westminster College has already approached Compass, expressing an interest in trialling a more unified solution in order to improve efficiencies and keep ahead of the curve. The College had identified frustrations around working in technology silos, which created inaccuracies and inefficiencies. For example, staff were spending significant amounts of time moving data around different systems, which did not talk to each other. It had become clear that there was a need for a more intuitive and unified system.
