HCSS Ed­u­ca­tion has ap­pointed a new head of prod­uct man­age­ment to over­see its range of in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions de­signed ex­clu­sively for the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor.

James Shep­hard will be head­ing up the team re­spon­si­ble for en­sur­ing that the Bolling­ton-based firm’s software so­lu­tions are tai­lored to cus­tomer needs.

Its software port­fo­lio is de­signed to give schools the edge when it comes to fi­nan­cial man­age­ment and strate­gic plan­ning.

James has over 12 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor, both in and out of schools, and ful­fils vol­un­tary roles as chair­man of an in­fant school and vice chair of a sec­ondary school.

Prior to his role at the com­pany, based on Spring­wood Way, James was prod­uct man­ager at XMA Ltd and was re­spon­si­ble for ICT hard­ware im­ple­men­ta­tion.

Be­fore this he worked as tech­ni­cal project man­ager for the firm Ad­vanced Learn­ing.

He said: “I bring to the role a thor­ough un­der­stand­ing of the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor and a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence over­see­ing the launch of large-scale IT so­lu­tions.

“I will be work­ing with key stake­hold­ers to gain the clear­est pic­ture of what they re­quire from the software.”
