Auckland Laidlaw College to Implement Cloud-Delivered Tribal EBS to Transform Student Data Management

CORPORATE NEWS: Tribal Group, a global leader in educational software and services, announced the signing of a five-year contract with Laidlaw College for the deployment and ongoing management of the Student Management System (SMS), ebs and Tribal ontrack portals for staff, students and prospective students.

Laidlaw College has campuses in Auckland and Christchurch, a number of partners offering Laidlaw programs, and a strong cohort of distance learning students. It offers qualifications ranging from certificate to postgraduate level to around 1,000 students. In 2022, the College celebrates its centenary – 100 years of training Christian leaders to work for the renewal of communities, Church, and society across Aotearoa and beyond.

Designed specifically for vocational education and training providers, ebs and ontrack were selected following a rigorous evaluation process and will replace the college’s former student management platform, Artena. Laidlaw College began implementation with commissioning except July 2022.

ebs, Tribal’s market-leading SMS, combined with its integrated portal functionality using ontrack, will enable the college to deliver rich portals for students and staff, and support online applications and admissions. ebs, delivered in the Tribal Cloud, will deliver an enhanced student experience and also modernize several interfaces, including Public Trust, Moodle, and the college’s financial system.

Laidlaw College Chief Operating Officer Phil Newman said, “As we turn the page on 100 years of Laidlaw College, we look to build on this legacy and position the college for the future. Tribal’s ebs emerged as the right SMS solution for our needs, delivering system enhancements, improved user experience, and seamless integration with current and future platforms. We are excited to move into the implementation mode, working closely with the Tribal team.

Tribal New Zealand Managing Director Steve Exley said: “We are delighted that Laidlaw College has chosen Tribal’s ebs student management system. Several of our team have already met the Laidlaw team during the procurement phase and we look forward to continuing to work with them on a successful implementation over the coming months. Laidlaw joins a growing community of private training provider users who have chosen ebs as their preferred SMS.
