How We Work With International Schools
We have a dedicated international team who will work with you at your location, all co-ordinated from our HQ in the UK. Our expertise in working with schools overseas is something we’re really proud of and we’re always delighted to partner with you to see our MIS and finance products making a real difference world-wide! Think bilingual admissions, administration and academic software – and a multi-language WCBS schoolPORTAL and you’re in the right place.
Don’t just take our word for it! We can connect you with a school close to your location so you can find out more from one of our existing customers. We can also provide you with a list of reference sites. Please contact us for this information.
We’ll make sure you get maximum value from your school information management system, even if you’re thousands of miles away and on a completely different time-zone. We provide extended hours of support meaning we’re always here for you. We’re just a phone or Skype call, or an email away – we won’t go quiet on you, we promise.
You’ll have access to the WCBS Customer Centre, a simple to navigate website where you can access the latest software downloads and release information, FAQs, log calls and find user group details. You can also find information on our extended support hours, and be given remote access facilities, so our technical team can help you within minutes – all you need to do is say the word.
After many years exporting our software to international schools around the world, WCBS is now well established in the Chinese education market. Through extensive research, and working closely with Chinese private and Government school customers, we have developed a unique understanding of the specific information management requirements in China.
Our international strategy continues to grow and adapt. This is due to the demands of the international market-place, as well as specific requests from schools that turn to us as industry leaders.
As a member of the China Britain Business Council (CBBC) and through working closely with the Department for International Trade (DIT) WCBS is recognised as one of the leading pioneers in the education technology market in China.
Further collaboration with our growing Chinese customer base will ensure that we have the very best product for the market to allow schools in China to run as efficiently as possible and provide the most professional service they can to their students and parents.
Our commitment to innovation is typified by our development of the first fully bilingual information management system in Mandarin and English. This is already being used by schools throughout China, either as a bilingual or entirely Mandarin solution. We are also expanding upon deep localisation of our Chinese MIS solution to reflect the requirements of schools.
