BSME conference for fee-paying schools
'If it's good enough for St Christopher's, and the Doha English Speaking School, it's good enough for me.'
This became the catch phrase from many BSME Heads and Delegates as they visited our stand at the BSME (British Schools in the Middle East) 2009 conference, held in Cyprus at the magnificent InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Resort.
Having taken orders for Engage MIS from both these prestigious BSME schools in 2008, confidence amongst delegates in Engage was high.
Middle East Support Centre for school management software
'Sales is not everything,' said Piers du Pré, Group Chairman. 'We have to be able to give excellent support to our customers as well as an excellent product.
'We are therefore establishing a dedicated Middle East Support Centre in Bahrain to ensure our Middle East customers have top level support, as and when they need it, and during the local hours they operate.
'This will be fully operational and manned by us from September 2009,' added Piers.
The Middle East support centre will be in addition to the UK Support Team which already supports non-UK schools during their local operating hours.
Whilst at the conference, Sandra Williams, Principal of the Doha Montessori and British School, Qatar, placed an order for a fully featured Engage MIS, including the Accounts module and Payroll, whilst at the conference.
