Do you require a review of your business processes?

Review your business case ensuring it is robust enough to justify the University providing another software solution.

  • Before you opt for a new software solution, please review your business processes, if you need help and advice from the Change Team they provide a ‘Guide on the Side’ service.
  • Consider all potential stakeholders involved in the process under review and ensure they are kept informed. For example Academic Registry for student related processes, HR for staff etc.
