IT firm’s £775,000 worth of con­tracts in a month

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

LEEDS-BASED ED­U­CA­TION tech­nol­ogy firm So­lu­tion­path has won £775,000 worth of con­tracts in just one month.

The soft­ware firm has new con­tracts to sup­ply its StREAM an­a­lytic and mon­i­tor­ing soft­ware to four English uni­ver­si­ties in Northamp­ton, Es­sex, Sal­ford and Sun­der­land, which be­tween them have a stu­dent pop­u­la­tion of over 60,000.

Us­ing the soft­ware, ‘at risk’ stu­dents are iden­ti­fied at a much ear­lier stage than would oth­er­wise be pos­si­ble, en­abling staff to in­ter­vene rapidly and of­fer the sup­port the stu­dent needs to get back on track.

A three-year trial re­cently com­pleted with un­der­grad­u­ates at Not­ting­ham Trent Uni­ver­sity found that StREAM helped to gen­er­ate dou­ble digit im­prove­ments in aca­demic per­for­mance, with 11 per cent more stu­dents achiev­ing first class or 2:1 hon­ours de­grees.

Howard Hall, CEO and co­founder of So­lu­tion­path, said: “Th­ese new client wins are tremen­dously ex­cit­ing for us.”

As a re­sult of the four new con­tract wins, So­lu­tion­path, which has of­fices in Leeds, Lon­don and Manch­ester plans to cre­ate five new jobs over the com­ing months.
