Education software company Collabco has seen sales rise to £1m last year, a figure which is up 18 per cent against 2016’s figures.

The company has set its sights on further growth in 2018 with a new sales director recently joining the team.

Andrew Taylor has a background in cloud-based solutions for higher education and will also be in charge of growing the commercial team as the Liverpool-based company expands its technology into new markets.

Among this technology is myday, an edtech system which lets educational institutions send resources and services directly to student devices.

Universities across the world, including in the UK, Belgium and New Zealand, are now using the system.

“It’s imperative that no matter how traditional the university or how popular it is in terms of the number of applications from prospective students it receives, universities and colleges digitise their campuses to deliver a student experience that begins the moment a student expresses an interest in the institution, through to graduation and alumni,” said Collabco MD Matt Dunkin.

“Every user experience should be seamless and intuitive. Millennials are used to being able to interact and engage with organisations on their own device wherever and whenever they choose – quite simply they demand this at university and college too.”
