The Role of G7
G7 provided the Application Managed Service originally to support the UBW student record interface and then also for general queries.
The University, like many HE sites, have a large number of interfaces into and out of the UBW system. Whilst they can mange the generic interfaces using standard UBW tools, the Student Record Interface from QLS was proving to need an extra level of support and skills to reduce risk. Following an on-site assessment, G7 started supporting this interface for the University, this included making changes to enhance the functionality and resolve issues.
G7 have now started working on the development of a new student record interface from their new student record system, into UBW.
Starting January 2017, G7 helped design and implement the UBW expenses implementation. G7 assisted in the following areas;
- Prepared Solution Design document
- Supported assisted build of Expenses solution
- Provided support during unit testing
- Provided suggested solutions and options for more complex issues
How did we do?
“We are very happy with the support, and with the arrival of Louisa Lewis, G7 built a dream team. It is nice to talk to people we know, that really understand the system”
