Sky Software enters the Singapore market

Partners with Inchone to tap middle market education providers

Australian-owned software company, Sky Software, has partnered with technology reseller, Inchone, to aggressively tackle the Singapore market, and help middle market education providers harness Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) technologies.

Inchone and Sky Software's mutual collaboration will offer Blue Sky – a solution which helps education providers better manage the student lifecycle from enquiry through to graduation – to the Singaporean market as one of the projects supported under a multi-agency effort led by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) and under the SaaS Call for Collaboration projects.

Under the agreement, Singaporean Private Education Institutions can claim up to 70 per cent of the qualifying costs. This includes a one-time setup cost and subscription fees (up to 24 months).

Sky Software CEO, Nick Stanley, said the partnership will help Singaporean education providers leverage SaaS technologies to better manage the student lifecycle, increase student recruitment and comply with government regulations.

“While the Asian education market is burgeoning, many middle market providers are still using very basic methods to monitor student records. By utilising a SaaS-based solution, education providers can easily implement a holistic student management system that can be scaled as required,” he said. Stanley claimed the subscription-based model eliminates the need for a large upfront capital outlay and provides an affordable offering to the Singaporean market. As part of its expansion into the Asia-Pacific market, Sky Software is currently implementing a pilot program with early childhood education training provider, First Learning & Training Centre (FLTC) in Singapore.

FLTC said, in a statement, that it intends to replace its existing systems by using Blue Sky for total student management and compliance with the Singaporean Council for Private Education Edutrust requirements.

Sky Software is not the only Australian business to expand its reach into the Asia-Pacific market. Most recently, Australian‐owned ICT consulting services provider, UXC Limited (ASX:UXC) launched operations in South-East Asia with the unveiling of offices in Singapore and Malaysia.
