The University of Westminster has appointed Simpson Associates to develop a Student Number Planning Application using IBM Planning Analytics

The University of Westminster went to market to find a robust planning tool to replace their  labour intensive, spreadsheet driven Student Number Planning process. They required a more agile, scenario-based planning application that would be responsive to the changing nature of the Higher Education sector.

 

“Not only were Simpson Associates able to demonstrate the capability of the IBM Planning Analytics toolset, they were able to give us specific examples of how other Universities had benefited from their Student Number Planning applications. It is clear that Simpson Associates have a wealth of sector knowledge and experience and we look forward to working with them.”

Joe Woolston – Director of Strategy, Risk & Planning

“The University of Westminster join a growing number of HE institutions implementing IBM Planning analytics to transform their planning processes. We are very pleased to be chosen as their implementation partner and we are looking forward to working together to create new applications to take their planning team forward with confidence in their data and their decision making.”
