It’s a game changer! HUBmis is next generation, cloud native, Software as a Service (SaaS) that uses the very latest technology in order to provide a 10x better user experience that is more secure, scalable, reliable and intuitive than your more traditional solutions.
Cloud …. What?
Simply put, Cloud Native is the future… Designed, built and delivered specifically for the cloud. This is as opposed to a system designed to live on a server and just hosted in the cloud.
Cloud native technology enables you to outsource and commoditise the infrastructure, allowing you to focus on delivering value added features instead of wasting valuable engineering time on hardware and infrastructure. There is more detail in our blog here.
Security designed today for the future
In today’s increasingly security-aware world, business leaders, IT service managers and purchasing decision makers alike demand more than just hand-wringing assurances from a software provider proclaiming that “yes, of course our software is secure!” The cost of exploited security vulnerabilities is high, whether that be from reputational damage caused by bad publicity from a security breach, or potential fines resulting from accidental data disclosure. Schools have by no means been excluded from breaches.
WCBS puts security on the highest level, and this commitment has extended to regular penetration testing whilst developing HUBmis.
Antony Woodhams, WCBS Development Director explains the importance of penetration testing in his blog here.
The User Interface and User Experience (UI and UX)
It is all very well building a product on the perfect platform but if the product is over-complicated and inconsistent then it’s all been for nothing, because it’s too difficult to use!
That’s why we have specialists at WCBS whose sole job is to make sure that HUBmis is intuitive, attractive and quick to use. Every detail of the user’s journey has been considered from the initial login through to creating a complicated timetable.
We value the importance of UX so much that we now have an in-house UX researcher on the team.
