Project Horizon FAQs

Why make a new product for schools in ANZ?

We are developing Project Horizon because schools need a modern, coherent platform that securely brings together and grows the proven services we have been offering for decades.

Education tech is one of the fastest growing and most rapidly changing sectors in the world today. But it is a sector marked by many small products with a niche focus on one area of school support. The Group’s new product will reflect our desire to change the market, and integrate the proven services we offer schools under one powerful system.

Project Horizon is our plan to re-platform the best of the proven services we offer across all of our existing products – in one secure integrated system including exciting new services and protections for schools. This will allow us to support every person in a school community to make the best decisions for their students – by securely getting the information they need exactly when they need it.

Project Horizon will therefore take the best of our proven service offerings, migrate them to the cloud, make it all mobile first, include some important new services and protections, and allow schools to seamlessly integrate with other solutions a school may choose to deploy.

The development project has been working with the code name “Project Horizon”. The actual Product Name will be revealed in winter 2020. Watch out for the announcement!

What is the Scope of Project Horizon?

The project will deliver a totally new suite of software for K-12 schools. The scope includes School Management, Teaching and Learning, Finance, Payroll, HR, Community Collaboration and more.

The solution is designed to deliver an outstanding user experience on any device (Phone, Tablet, Laptop, PC, Mac, etc)

When will the product be available to buy?

We expect to offer the first release of the product in the summer of 2020.

Before then the product is being put through extensive development, testing and quality assurance processes. Senior representatives from a group of existing client schools have joined our ‘Design Lab Team’. These people will help to confirm that the functions offered by the product are aligned to schools’ needs and that the user experience matches schools’ expectations.

A pilot program will be running through the winter of 2020. These pilots will run in conjunction with a number of Australian schools. The pilots will allow the product to be tested and improved by evaluating it thoroughly in a simulated environment.
