Firm lands top schools deal

Have your say

SCHOOLS across the UK, USA and UAE will soon be using an online management system developed by a growing South Yorkshire business.

Bluewave Swift, which has headquarters in Sheffield and offices in Balby Carr in Doncaster, has been awarded a £250,000 contract to supply school improvement planning and management systems to GEMS schools.

GEMS Education is the largest private school provider in the world, with schools in 10 countries and the deal initially covers 45 schools.

The systems give schools the means to manage staff performance, training and school improvement as well as meet the information needs of local school inspection bodies.

The Bluewave system replaces in-house versions which were proving to be costly and time consuming.
