Grŵp Llandrillo Menai is comprised of three colleges - Coleg Llandrillo, Coleg Menai and Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor. It is the largest Further Education (FE) institution in Wales and one of the largest FE college groups in the UK.
In common with many organisations in this sector, the group operates a Finance system based on SunSystems and Proactis. These systems are an important part of the ICT infrastructure for the college and their ongoing support and maintenance is critical for their continued success.
Matthew Nash, Director of Financial Services, comments:
"We were looking to make further improvements in the efficiency and effectiveness of our financial management systems and wanted to ensure we had the best partner to support us in the years ahead."
Following a formal review of potential suppliers, LAKE Financial Systems were chosen. Matthew Nash explains:
‘There were three reasons for choosing LAKE....
.. Firstly, they demonstrated a good understanding of where we want to go with these systems. We particularly liked LAKE’s proposal to extend the use of Proactis dashboards by incorporating data from both SunSystems and Proactis...
.. Secondly, LAKE has extensive experience of working in the College sector which would benefit us from a sharing of ideas perspective...
.. And lastly, LAKE is a one-stop shop, supporting all our core finance systems.’
