The college previously operated under a central timetabling model, with intentions to convert to a distributed one. After discovering their current tool was not able to offer them the integration with other systems required, Glasgow Kelvin College explored other options available on the market.

CELCAT proposed their fully integrated system, which allowed Glasgow Kelvin College to automatically create registers based on timetabled events, and System Integration Manager (SIM), to help Glasgow Kelvin College seamlessly incorporate CELCAT into its existing MIS and reporting environments.

The change of process was at the heart of Glasgow Kelvin College’s decision to purchase the software, as they needed to ensure the system was sufficiently user-friendly for curriculum managers to control their teaching schedules.

“Having attendance and timetabling combined was a big win for us, and we were particularly fond of the feature that allowed “supervisors” to be notified of repeated absences. CELCAT appears easy to use, which is essential as we roll out the new system to curriculum managers for the first time.”
